Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Hoping to purge some more of her inner demons, Xena (Lucy Lawless) visits the site of a city burned down by her former warriors. Before long, Gabrielle (Renee O'Connor) is captured by cannibals and Xena is seriously wounded while rescuing her friend. The only hope for Xena's survival is the legendary Healer of Mount Nestus. The first episode of a two-part story, "Destiny" is highlighted by a dazzling flashback sequence in which Xena relives the events leading up to her assuming the mantle of Warrior Princess.
