Storyboard Text

  • In "Twenty Years Gone.." Odysseus returns back to Ithaca alone and hides under a beggar disguise from his son.
  • Daddy's home!
  • You aren't my father! What trickery is this??
  • In "Odysseus' Revenge", Odysseus and Telemachus along with a few loyal men have to take down all of the suitors.
  • Penelope is mine!!
  • In "Penelope's Test", Odysseus finally has Penelope to himself without the annoying suitors. The problem is, she doesn't believe that it's him.
  • Don't you remember the bed I made us?
  • How can you be my Odysseus? He is long dead.
  • Odysseus reveals himself to his son, who does not recognize him. "You cannot be my father Odysseus! Meddling spirits conceived this trick to twist the knife in me!" Odysseus then explains what's happened to him, and Telemachus accepts that it is his father. The two devise a plan to get rid of Penelope's swarm of suitors.
  • Odysseus and Telemachus go through with their plan of taking down the suitors. He gathers them near his home and shoots them down one by one, despite their pleas. "In blood and dust he saw that crowd all fallen, many and many slain" With this, he has defeated his enemies and has Penelope to himself again.
  • "Strange man.. if man you are." Penelope refuses to believe that it is Odysseus until he speaks aloud their shared secret of the unmovable bed, which no one else could have known. She accepts that it's him and they embrace, reunited at last.
