Hercules learns that his enemy, the beautiful warrior princess Xena, is building her power and territory by raiding villages throughout the land. Hercules' angers grows as he follows the marauders' bloody path of destruction. Meanwhile, Xena's command is challenged by her cruel and ruthless lieutenant Darphus (Matthew Chamberlain), who goes against her instructions and moral code. He orders a merciless slaughter of a defenseless community, demanding they kill even women and children. When Xena stops the slaying of an infant, Darphus denounces her act of compassion as weak, and forces her to endure the deadly warrior ritual known as the Gauntlet. Beaten within an inch of her life, Xena survives by her formidable skills and staggers alone into the wilderness.

With Darphus now in control of the marauders, it is up to Hercules and Xena to stop them.
