There is a montage of Xena and Gabrielle beating up people, interacting, taking down warlords, etc.
THEME SONG (sung by The Chorus)
EXT. A PATH SOMEWHERE - DAY
A handheld camera shows an over the shoulder shot of Xena as she rides Argo. The camera pans from Xena to Gabrielle, to the bushes, the sky, Argo's hoof, Xena's boot, etc. in an almost random pattern. We're not quite sure what we're supposed to be focusing on.
The camera jiggles maniacally as Gabrielle tries to hop on behind both Xena and the cameraman.
We approach a village where there is a small crowd being beaten up by a warlord and his gang. Blood is spurting, people are screaming, it's murderous mayhem.
The warlord turns around and Xena gets a good look at him.
The warlord spots Xena, jumps on the suspicious horse and takes off.
Gabrielle starts imitating a siren as they chase the warlord.
They head for the turn and the warlord gets thrown from his horse. Xena leaps off Argo, with Gabrielle and the cameraman close behind. The warlord is running for all his life.
The warlord continues running until he gets trapped by a dead end made of large boulders, lined by bushes. He turns around to face Xena, looking like a deer in headlights. Xena, sword drawn is pointing it at him in a two-handed stance.
The warlord gets on the ground, but there are rocks everywhere that he could hurl at her.
Gabrielle and the warlord start clearing up the ground clutter. Gabrielle can't move a really big rock.
Obligingly, the warlord helps her move it.
The path is now clear.
The frightened warlord gets on the ground.
Xena walks up and kneels on his back
Xena slits his throat with her chakram. Everyone (except, of course, the dead warlord) is breathing hard.
Gabrielle hands Xena the small pouch. Xena sniffs it.
Xena turns to the camera.
