Xena teams up with Autolycus, the King of Thieves, to steal a chest that is a weapon that protects a village, of whom Xena owes a great debt to. But they must go up against warlords, thieves and assassins to get it.

Trivia--The "new" Xena kills less often than then "old" Xena, but still quite often. In this episode she kills Sinteres with the "pressure points" technique, one of Arkel's warriors by slicing his belly with her sword, and another by thrusting her sword in his groin (ouch!). The "new" Xena's body-count after this episode is 31.
