TEASER

FADE IN:

1. FOREST - EARLY MORNING

The sun is rising in the sky, as Gabrielle slumbers near a blazing fire.

Xena is walking up a small incline with a few fish in hand.

A beautiful lake, complete with waterfall, can be seen behind her.

Xena sneaks up on Gabrielle quietly, and begins to swing the fish in front of her face. Gabrielle, still asleep, brushes her face to try and get rid of the annoying menace.

Xena smiles to herself as she continues swinging the fish from their line.

A moment later, Gabrielle stirs and awakens. It takes her a second to realize what is going on and she jumps up when she sees the fish.

 

GABRIELLE

Xena, get those slimy fish out of my face!

 

Xena chuckles, and sits down on a nearby log. She starts cleaning the fish.

 

GABRIELLE

I bet you think you're funny, don't you.

 

XENA

Yep.

 

GABRIELLE

I suppose you'd like me to cook these lovely fish.

 

XENA

That would be the general idea.

 

Gabrielle walks over towards Xena, and sits down next to her.

 

GABRIELLE

Xena, I swear, without my cooking skills, you would starve.

(beat)

Where would we be right now if I weren't such a good cook?

 

Xena just rolls her eyes at the comment.

 

XENA

I guess we would just dine out more often...

(beat)

Or maybe I could have gotten Lila to be our chef, I hear she's a great cook.

 

GABRIELLE (cocking her brow)

And maybe you could get Lila to be your partner too.

 

XENA

Oh c'mon Gabrielle, you know you're irreplaceable.

 

GABRIELLE (smiling)

Right answer, Warrior Princess...

 

Xena shoots Gabrielle a suspicious look.

XENA

Ah-huh...

(beat)

Let's get some breakfast going.

 

She hands Gabrielle the cleaned fish with a big smile on her face. Gabrielle gives her a playful shove.

 

GABRIELLE

Maybe after we eat we can go for a swim.

(beat)

The lake looks beautiful.

 

XENA

Yeah, that's what I thought too.

(beat)

Then we can head off and go visit your family.

 

GABRIELLE

It will be great to see them, Xena. I do miss them a lot. I wonder how Sarah has adjusted to being back home...

(beat)

she's had such a rough time of it.

 

XENA

Yes she has, but she's a strong woman Gabrielle; it runs in her family...

(beat)

So, I'm sure she's doing just fine.

 

GABRIELLE (smiling)

Yeah, I know you're right.

(beat)

I can't wait to see Lila too, and tease her at how much older she looks than me.

CUT TO:

2 - FOREST - EARLY MORNING

A figure dressed in a black hooded cape is walking through the forest as the sun is just starting to break over the horizon.

The only sounds that can be heard are twigs snapping and leaves rustling in the wake of the figure's footsteps.

At the edge of the woods, there is a small mountain with a cave opening at the base.

The figure approaches the entrance, looks around suspiciously, and slowly enters the cave.

Lying on the ground, close to the entrance, is a discarded torch.

The mysterious person leans down to pick it up, clenches it in his hand tightly while whispering in a low inaudible voice.

A moment later, the torch is ablaze and glowing brightly.

The figure makes his way through the dark murky cave with only the single torch to light the way.

Rounding a corner, he awakens a family of bats that shriek, and immediately fly away.

The resounding sound of their wings flapping is all that is heard as they escape. The path ahead of the dark figure is partially blocked with fallen rocks.

He climbs to the top of the pile, and begins to claw his way through it. Rocks cascade down the side, and settle at the bottom.

The cloaked person makes enough of an opening to squeeze through to the other side.

On the other side, there is a small hallway that opens into a small round room with a pedestal sitting in the center of the room. Displayed on top of the pedestal is a black crystal.

The dark figure approaches the crystal, and begins to chant an incantation.

DARK FIGURE
(in a low voice)

Spirits of evil hear my call...

(beat)

awaken now and do my will.

(beat)

Bring forth remnants of the past...

 

The crystal begins to glow red as a small stream of black smoke escapes from it.

The figure finishes the incantation.

 

DARK FIGURE - (CONTINUED)

Servants of darkness to aid my cause.

(beat)

Forces of evil release your children...

(beat)

bring back their power and their essence.

(beat)

Give me the tools needed to bring about the destruction of thy enemies.

 

A voice is heard from the shadows.

VOICE

Their end is near.
