TV GUIDE PROMO
Ares tries to poison Lillith to destroy Hercules.
As Iolaus and Jason decorate for Lilith's party, Hercules takes her on a diversionary field trip that leads them to a local cave. Diversion turns to disaster when the cave, in which they are exploring, colapses, cripples Lilith, and leaves her vulnerable to the conniving Ares (God of War) who convinces her to poison Hercules.
This synopsis is by Deb Roche
The Academy is throwing a surprise party for Lilith, congratulating her for winning the "DUCUDA" (It's a centaur word meaning "best warrior". She won the competition in KEEPING UP WITH THE JASONS)
Iolaus & Jason have asked Hercules to "take Lilith out of the Academy so they can decorate and prepare the party.
Hercules asks Lilith to go "mushroom" picking with him. At first she refuses, but when she sees the look on Herc's face when she says no, she changes her mind.
Iolaus and Jason ask Kora to help them.But when Iolaus and Jason start bickering Kora walks.
Meanwhile Herc & Lilith's mushroom picking takes them to a cave. Lilith heads in, Herc sense something and tells her that he doesn't think it's a good idea to go in. Lilith laughs and enters. Herc follows. Within a few seconds, the cave starts to collapse. Herc tries to get Lilith to safety, but it's no use. The cave caves-in on them.
After the dust settles, Herc digs his way out from under the rocks, and calls for Lilith. He digs Lilith out, but realizes she has broken her leg. He takes her to a safe place within the cave and they sit down, resting against a rock, side by side.
They start talking, and Herc debeats about putting his arm around her to comfort her. He gives in a puts his arm around her. She doesn't mind. As Lilith tells Herc the story of how her villiage was attacked by mauraders, he listens and adjusts his position. He slides around her and know has one arm draped across her shoulder. She leans back onto him. She finishes the story, and Herc says he is going to go get help, and will be back soon.
Herc leaves. Once he is gone Lilith is sort-of scared. she closes her eyes for one second and when she opens them someone is standing in front of her. She asks who he is, and he says "a healer. Hercules asked me to come." What Lilith doesn't realize, is that this man is ARES!
Ares tells her that when Hercules gets back he will be sick but not it, and that she must give him medicine. Lilith says she has no medicine. Ares waves his hand over the water canteen and tells her that she must make Herc drink it. Lilith says ok. She looks at the canteen, then looks up to ask "the healer" something, but he's gone.
A few moments later, Herc is back. He says he's found a way out. Lilith begs him to drink from the canteen. Herc is suspicious, but gives in. He drinks it, then gets a funny look on his face. Lilith asks what's wrong, but Herc can't answer. He collapses. Lilith tells him to stop playing around. Lilith tells him to answer her. Ares appears and says "it's kind of hard to answer when one's dead." Lilith looks at Ares and says "who are you". Ares says "I'm surprised you don't recognize me. I'm the God of War." Ares then takes Herc in his arms and says that know that Herc is dead, he'll be father's favourite again.
Then, Herc opens his eyes and says "I don't think so, brother." Ares is stunned. Hercules was suppose to be dead. Herc and Ares fight. After a while Herc asks why he keeps trying to kill him, when they both know that Zeus' protection order will never let him. Ares says "That's why your girlfriend will" To which both Herc & Lilith respond, simultaneously, "we're just friends" Ares and Herc return to fighting. Herc causes the cave to collapse again, burying Ares. Herc and Lilith get out of there.
Herc carries Lilith back to the Academy. The enter the "mess hall" and Lilith, noticing the decorations, asks what's going on. Herc sits her on the table and everyone jumps out and yells surprise. Everyone except Jason & Iolaus who are fast asleep in against the wall. Cheiron looks at Herc & Lilith and asks what happened to them. They look at each other, smile, say "mushroom picking" and start laughing.
