Detailed summary
When last seen in May's cliffhanger, Gabrielle was sacrificing herself at the altar of Dahak to rid the world of her evil daughter Hope. As the fourth season opens, Xena (Lucy Lawless) begins a two-part search for her friend's spirit. So, guided by Gabrielle's faint voice in the wind, Xena rides off. Geographically, she's in Siberia; but spiritually, Xena is in an abyss where she confronts her dark past. What's more, she has to battle an evil shamaness (Claire Stansfield) along the way. In search of Gabrielle's soul, Xena searches out Hades and demands that he tell where Gabrielle is - his response is "She didn't come to me" and after a short discussion they conclude that she has gone to the Amazon Kingdom of the Dead. Leaving Argo, Xena heads north into Amazon territory and preforms a bizzare ritual which transports her to another plane. Here she is challenged by a dead Amazon Queen (Cyane) and through flashbacks we discover more about Xena's war against the amazons and her descent into dark magic with an evil Shamaness. In the present day, Xena helps the remainder of the Amazon tribe to battle the evil Beserker who is tormenting their land only to discover it is a puppet of Alti, the evil Shamaness Xena sided with against the Amazons long ago.
