Xena must save an entire village when Gabrielle unwittingly frees three ancient Titans, who have been imprisoned for centuries in stone. While Xena pursues a group of murdering thugs led by Hesiod, Gabrielle stumbles into a cavern where a group of priests are performing a ritual. When she corrects the pronunciation of a young woman who is chanting words from an ancient scroll, the huge rock sculptures of three Titans know as Theia, Crias and Hyperion spring to life from the cavern wall. Thrilled at being liberated, the Titans drop to their knees before Gabrielle, whom they proclaim a great goddess. Meanwhile, a skeptical Xena warns her friend that there may have been a very good reason why the Titans were entombed by the gods in the first place.
