Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Xena (Lucy Lawless) is puzzled when Gabrielle (Renee O'Connor) is surrounded by worshippers, referring to her as "The Source." The reason for this phenomenon becomes terrifyingly clear when Gabrielle gives birth after what must be the shortest pregnancy of all time. In an even more terrifying development, Gabrielle's new daughter, Hope, almost instantly grows into full womanhood -- as the embodiment of pure evil, the result of her mother's brief alliance with satanic god Dahuk. Now Gabrielle is on the horns of a devastating dilemma: Should she nurture Hope, "Daughter of Darkness," or kill her own offspring?
