Dave and Jeff katabisate back into Hades where we watch a parade of mythic women, but no marching bands or fun-size Snickers in this parade, just more murder, mourning, and malevolence. Tune in for Epicaste, Antiope, Alcmene, and many more unpronounceable ladies. Then it’s more blasts from the passed: Agamemnon shows up with a story of the worst “welcome home” present ever while planting some doubts in Odysseus’ mind. Achilles himself drifts forward giving Odysseus a taste of what awaits him. Ajax Telamon gives our hero the silent treatment and refuses to “hug it out.” And even Sisyphus, the original rock-n-roller, has a cameo, eternally doomed but still managing to drop some 19th century economic theory on all y’all.
