TV GUIDE PROMO
Following orders from Hera, Nemesis (assassin to the gods) appears in Kora's to execute Rowab-a man accused of stealing oil from Hera's temple to save his dying child. Hercules thwarts her efforts, and convinces Nemesis that she shouldn't blindly kill mortals based on orders from an evil, jealous god. Because of his good deed, he finds himself the target of Hera's rage at the hands of Nemesis' replacement killer, Stregna
This synopsis is by Deb Roche
A thug steals Hermes' sandals from Hermes while he is asleep in one of Hera's temples.
Hera sends Nemesis, goddess of Justice, to retrieve them. Nemesis does and returns them to Hera. Hera reminds Nemesis that this job is her punishment for joining her father and siding with the Titans in the war against Zeus. Hera then tells her she has another job for her.
Meanwhile at Kora's, the guys are hanging out when a constable escorts a man in chains into the tavern. The man stole some oil from one of Hera's temples. The man & the constable sit down at a nearby table. A gust of wind apparently blows in. Everyone looks to the doorway but no-one, expect Hercules, sees the woman, Nemesis, standing there. Jason & Iolaus think Herc is losing it when he insists a beautiful woman is standing in the doorway.
Nemesis aims an arrow at the thief and Herc intercepts it. Kora tosses Herc and the guys out because she thinks they are playing games. Outside Nemesis appears again and asks how Herc can see her. Only gods can see her. Herc tells her who he is. Jason & Iolaus think Herc is crazy. They keep insisting no-one is there.
Nemesis tells Herc to "stay out of it" and leaves. Herc tells the guys he's going after her. They guys follow.
Herc catches up and tries to talk to her. He tells her the gods don't always do the right thing. Nemesis says that Hera has ordered her to kill him if he interfers. Jason & Iolaus catch up. And here Herc talking to thin air. Jason and Iolaus catch Herc's reponse to Nemesis' threat. They say that obviously Hera never warned her about Zeus' protection order. Nemesis asks what they mean. Herc explains.
When Nemesis misses the thief on purpose, Hera sends another archer, Stregna, after them. Hera gives Stregna an arrow dipped in Hind's blood to use against Nemesis.
Stregna finds Herc and Nemesis together. Herc questions how Stregna plans to kill Nemesis when she is immortal. Nemesis replies that the arrow is probably dipped in Hind's blood.
Herc helps Nemesis defeat Stregna. In the course of the fight, Herc cuts off Stregna's whip-like pony tail, and breaks the poisoned arrow.
Herc and Nemesis say goodbye. Nemesis kisses him on the cheek.

HTLJ notes: Nemesis has appeared in a few episodes of the series. According to the series Herc & Nemesis were childhood sweethearts. In one episode Herc stops Nemesis from killing Iolaus, in another he stops her from killing Salmoneus. When she refuses to kill Salmoneus, Hera makes her mortal. AS a mortal, Ares approaches her and says that if she is willing to give him a son, he will give her back her godhood. She accepts. But when Evander is born she changes her mind. Herc helps Nemesis keep Evander.
Mythology notes: Nemesis: Goddess of Vengeance. Daughter of Erebus & Nyx.
