A snake hidden in a scroll kills Cleopatra in Egypt, so Xena disguises as the Queen and Gabrielle as her servant to save Egypt from the Romans, who are divided among the followers of Brutus, Marc Antony and Octavius (Caesar's adopted son). While they look for Cleopatra's killer, something unexpected happens: Xena falls in love with Antony.

Though having gone berserk and killed half a garrison of Roman soldiers in "Ides of March", it's the first time that Gabrielle kills a prominent character who's supposedly a very good swordsman in a head-to-head duel. See more
Xena must have been a truly remarkable person for not only was she present at the Trojan war, as we have seen in a past episode, but she also had the honor of knowing Cleopatra.

Talk about your well kept woman! See more
