Xena stops drinking her tea to take a cell-phone call. She's got people working for her at all hours, doesn't she? It's Jane on the phone. Never mind all the wiretapping, I guess. Jane asks Xena if she's seen Tarzan. "Yeah, I have," Xena says. She tells Jane that she's put Tarzan on a plane back to the Republic of Congo so that he can find his jungle once again: "He's going home." Jane asks how Xena could let Tarzan leave. Xena says he wanted to go. She thanks Jane for what she did for Tarzan: "Because of you I got to know him again. Only for a little while. I hope this won't be goodbye." Xena totally digs Jane.
Jane says, "Sam, John's leaving. For good. Why would he do that?" Sam tells her that this is the right thing. Jane: "For who [sic]?" Sam: "For you, Jane. For both of you. Come on. It makes the most sense." It certainly does. Ship him back to the Congo and end this show. Wouldn't that be awesome, if they re-cut it that way because they were cancelled, as if Tarzan just swooped in here for six weeks and then went home? That would be so awesome. It was all a dream! Jane -- who can't go three seconds without guilting someone into a favor -- says, "I need you to be my friend right now. I need you to help me."
Sam taunts the two worthless cops staking out Jane's apartment (one of whom is that guy who's working for Clayton and has no name) while Jane slips out behind him, running off to go stop Tarzan from making the smartest decision of his life.
At the precinct, working really late, Carey brings Gene the news he heard from Sam's cell phone. He tells Gene that Tarzan's fixing to leave the country on a jet plane. Carey asks if he should tell the Lieu, but Gene's too dirty to do things by the book. We spend a long time with Carey here, watching him "think," and then forgetting him instantly.
Airstrip. Jane's taxi pulls up. She runs through the fence, which isn't locked. "John!" she shouts. She runs up to the jet. Tarzan -- in another outfit entirely -- stops. "I heard you were leaving," Jane says. "I had to see you." "Why?" Tarzan asks. They then ask each other a few questions back and forth. Casablanca, this shit ain't. And here's where Jane's not talking to Tarzan, but instead to us. "How could you give up? There's so much hope. There's so many things we haven't tried." "Let me go," Tarzan says along with us. He walks to the jet. "So that's it?" Jane asks. LET US GO, JANE. "You're just gonna leave without saying goodbye?" Tarzan walks back to Jane, sparking truly wretched music, and gives Jane a serious hug. Like, total first-base touching, here. Wow. Hot! Jane and Tarzan sniff each other as the jet makes that sound jets make when they want to leave. Still no kissing, but Tarzan tries to cry. "Goodbye," he says, and walks backward to the plane.
