Oedipus the Great Savior of Thebes, help!
All of the newborn babies, cattle, and crops are dying!
Oh no! Priest, what's the matter?
Of course, Creon is already looking into it. Though, he may prove untrustworthy.
Just as I once did from the evil sphinx!
Do not worry my children! I will save you from this plague! I can handle anything! (hubris)
I'm so smart (hubris)
Solve my riddle and I'll go. What has four legs at dawn, two at midday, and three in the evening?
Ha! I banish you from Thebes at once!
Aww, now I have to leave!
Back to Thebes, where Creon returns with news...
Hey Creon! What did Apollo say?
Creon is definitely trying to steal my throne! He took so long to come back.
It's great to see you Oedipus!
I will do everything I can to bring this unknown group of murderers to justice!
If not, I shall pay the penalty.(dramatic irony)
Apolo said that to save Thebes from this train plague, we must avgenge Laius's murder.
Oh Artemis, oh Diyonysus, oh Athena! Might you save us from Ares, who must be the creator of this plague.
Praying to the gods is all well and good, but you should trust me. (hubris) Might you know who the killer of Lauis is?
Creon already urged me to get him. He should be here soon.
No, I don't know. But Teiresias might.
Please, we need deliversacne from the pollution of the killer.
Teiresias, we were hoping you might know who Laius's killers are. So we can avenge his murder.
You won't like the answer very much. I would rather not argue with you.
I would rather not say.
How dare you speak such lies?
Fine Oedipus, you are the killer and the polluter of Thebes.
Your speaking lies. What would you know anyway? You're blind.
Oedipus, you refuse to accept the truth about yourself, so you are the true blind man.
What I am saying is true. There is a prophecy that says you will mkill your dad, arry your mom and have kids with her.
You must be working with Creon in his plan overthrow me as king.
Hey, let's try to calm down and figure out what to do?
I don't know what you mean.
Don't make fun of me.
Whether you want to believe it or not, you will carry out the prophecy.
For a knowledgable person like yourself, I would assume you might understand.
I want you to leave immediatly.
I will go at your request., But remember what I said about the prophecy.
We wish that the gods would rival who Lauis's murderer is. it can't be Oedipjus! He saved us from the sphinx.
My dear audience, I have been told Oedipus has been spreading evil about me. I must find out why.
Ah, he was probably just angry about something. Probably not ay you. He doesn't have any reason to be mad at you. If he was that would make him crazy.
Creon you traitor! I know of your evil plan to take over the throne. You really thought Teiresias could fool me?
Oedipus, what do you mean? I don't want the throne. even if I did I could have taken it years ago.
You are a liar Creon! I know not that I can not trust you!
You continue to lie to me. I want you banished from Thebes!
Second, Being king is a lot of responsibility. People are always talking to you about their problems. Why would I want that?
There is no reason for me to want the throne. I get so many bribes just by being associated with you. Not even from doing any work.
I'll leave and let you cool off.
Creon sent a prophet to lie and say that I killed Lauis!
There's no way that can be true. Laius and my son was the one who was prophesized to kill him. We had him taken care of years ago.
What's going on?
Oh no! That could have been me!
He was killed where Athena lane crosses with Diyonysus avenue. He was traveling byhimself.
Don't worry about it. Te prophecy also said that pour son would marry his mom. If he's now dead, there's no way he can do any of those things.
I'll look I not it just to be safe.
No! I must.
No! Please don't! Just stop looking!
Oedipus needs to face reality. Fate will find him either way.
