Odysseus wins and kills everyone.
Odysseus has revealed himself as the true King of Ithaca by peeling back his cloak, stringing the bow, knocking an arrow, and sending it flying through the 12 axe-helves.
"Your last hour has come. You die in blood."
The suitors are scared for their lives when Odysseus kills Antinous, and Philoetius locks them all in the room.
"Now that he's got his hands on bow and quiver, he'll shoot from the big door stone there, until he kills us to the last man."
Eurymachus steps forward, and tries to rally the men.
"Father let me bring you a shield and spear, a pair of spears, a helmet. I can arm on the run myself."
The suitors are angry, and Telemachus steps forward to help his long lost father.
"Run then, while I hold them off with arrows, as long as the arrows last. When all are gone, if I'm alone they can dislodge me."
With the help of Athena's shield, Odysseus and Telemachus take down the suitors. "The room is reeking with blood," and the battle is over.
