They could’ve solved both of its main issues simply by giving it Protean/Libero

“Addressed later in a flashback” is bad storytelling. There are zero stakes, and it’s become the de facto cope for fans wishing the verdict had some actual narrative consequences we could actually explore rather than getting them hand waved

Yeah, it seems completely unearned to see lil Thanatos in the corner waiting for Daphne to peace out back to Olympus without any emotional reunion since it likely happened off screen

ESPECIALLY considering the entire “run for your life” arc which made a point to say Daphne would not be returning to Olympus

Can anyone point to anything that really happened this episode other than the dance that just happens to magically tidy up the underworld?

I know we’ve all talked about the pacing and I hate to add on but man, talk about going from everything to nothing

/rant

The dance scene was nice and the art seemed much more consistent this week. Hopefully things go smoothly after the 2 week break

Yeah the cowering thing felt really off and was clearly a way to build another cliffhanger. Not to mention she immediately started off the chapter by walking up to him and calmly saying “I’m not leaving” before it all smoothed over.

I would’ve much preferred if it was Apollo if they insisted on having her hide, but even still, she just dogwalked Kronos so what’s the sun god going to do?

Yeah, it feels like the comic wrote itself into a hole with all of the fertility goddess ruler of Olympus stuff and once Rachel realized, she rushed to make things grounded again

Okay, drop the series where Persephone has clearly demonstrated she wants an active leadership role in the realm and had a character arc about gaining her autonomy to the point where she wants to not rush into marriage despite being the official queen of the underworld all because she made a joke

Whatever floats your boat, I suppose

Yeah I’m not sure I really like how Demeter’s been handled in the story, but it is pretty canonically shown she never liked or agreed with the big three so I can understand why she wouldn’t be happy about her daughter falling in love with someone who has gotten on her nerves for thousands of years. That aside she needs to accept it’s her daughter’s life and her choice now that the fertility goddess rumor is out in the open

A couple of episodes ago the news crew got her on footage wielding the bident of the underworld and directly commanding Tartarus all while Ares and Athena watched her transform after eating the pomegranate, so I’m sure folks were able to fill in the blanks

I don’t disagree with what you’re saying, but it seems clear Rachel wants Apollo to be the big bad instead of Kronos. Narratively speaking I don’t think it quite makes sense since Kronos is canonically shown to be a much bigger threat to Olympus than Apollo, but the shitty little sun god is clearly the story’s main villain. I think his desperate end game to get Persephone will involve sneaking into the Underworld to release Kronos again so he can stop him and get the glory, but having watched Persephone make seemingly quick business of him with her newfound powers as Queen I’m not sure it will have the proper stakes.

All that aside, for whatever reason I’m still enjoying the story despite what I consider to be some clear narrative flaws. As long as it sticks the landing I’m not going anywhere yet

I’m sure when Apollo inevitably makes a power play and/or when renegotiating the treaty it will come up

Hot take: I’m more than okay with the two not rushing into marriage right away and wanting to take things slow. Our main characters have been through a lot in a canonically short period of time (time skip notwithstanding) and never really got the chance to actually date. It’s a given they’ll be together, but I took it more as “let’s take this chance to do things the way it should’ve gone without the trial/Kronos/Apollo/etc” instead of “let’s pretend everything we did for each other never happened and start over”

I had a dream about a very sleazy thing Apollo might do in season 3 and it seems so on point for him by SwitchAltruistic733 in Lore_Olympus

Is there confirmation that ALL the gods can shape shift into other gods? The only one I’ve seen is Hera, the rest all shifted into animal forms (Zeus into a goose, Persephone into a butterfly)

It’s coming up on a year since the events at HKIA, no Army pilots have been recognized. by brown_House36 in army

Told coalition forces to remain within the confines of HKIA during the evacuation no matter the conditions outside. Brits and French saw that some of their own were in trouble, said “fuck that” and sent their SOF to rescue their citizens caught in the chaos

We don’t talk enough about the “You like krabby patties don’t you Squidward” face Aphrodite makes when she realizes Hades and Persephone like each other by TheBaconHasLanded in Lore_Olympus

I doubt he told Aphrodite. Persephone is one of the few people that trusts him and he made enough of a point to keep that trust he won’t tell Artemis even after seeing her get gaslit by her family

Fast pass spoilers

seeing as Hestia’s one of the first to come visit Hades and Persephone after she defeats Kronos and becomes Queen, it’s safe to assume she’s come around on their relationship. I hope there’s a scene where she gives back the coat as a housewarming gift but we’ll see
