Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Gabrielle (Renee O'Connor) poses as Xena (Lucy Lawless) when the later is felled by a poisoned dart while trying to protect traveling peddler Salmoneus (Robert Trebor). Gabrielle's first task -- to save a village from a warlord. The assignment is made doubly difficult when Gabrielle hears that Xena has died. A certain blonde female warrior makes her first fleeting appearance in "The Greater Good," one episode ahead of her official debut in "Callisto."
