  • I, declare a competition, which ever suitor can string Odysseus's bow and shoot an arrow through 12 ax handles, him shall I marry
  • That's my boy
  • I am Telemakhos, son of Odysseus and Penelope. If I am able to string my father's bow my mother should not suffer to marry any of you suitors!
  • Father?
  • Telemakhos and the suitors attempt to string the bow but none are successful. Even after they try to cheat
  • Oh well, there are other fish in the sea.
  • Alas, we aren't as mighty as Odysseus! 
  • Odysseus's servants, unable to watch, leave the competition. In disguise, Odysseus follows them outside. 
  • I am Odysseus behold my scar
  • Are you still loyal to Odysseus? 
  • Confident that this stranger is Odysseus, their former master, the servants began to cry. Odysseus tells them to follow him back to the competition 
  • Yes, are you Odysseus?
  • Odysseus, still in disguise takes the bow, strings it and after Zeus sends him a sign, shoots an arrow through all twelve axes. 
  • Odysseus prepares a feast for the suitors to celebrate his victory than makes a subtle gesture(wink) indicating Telemakhos to grab his spear
