FoxKids Spoilers

  • 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.
  • After Hercules talks Hera's assassin, Nemesis (Charmaine Guest), into sparing the life of an innocent mortal, Hera sends a killer after the two of them.

Trivia & References
