Season three ends with a two parter. Xena and Gabrielle are on the trail of an old friend of Gabrielle`s from Poteidaia named Seraphin who has become involved in a cult. After attempts to rescue her, Callisto appears, however, it is not her that the cult are praying to, but another immortal female who is to be reborn....Hope!

Ares returns and as usual his motives are unclear. His deal with Gabrielle mentioned in Forget Me Not is returned to as he tells Gabrielle that Xena cannot kill Hope, or Xena will die. This leads to a fabulous climax when Hope`s rebirth produces a young lady who bears a striking resemblence to her mother!
