They started to make their way to Odysseus's house to kill him.
Meanwhile, Athena saw that they wanted to kill Odysseus and asked Zeus what do do. Zeus says that she may do whatever she wants but recommends that they make peace again.
Odysseus and his family suit up to fight the angry fathers. Athena comes down in the form of Mentor and tells Laertes to pray to to her and Zeus before he throws his spear. Laertes does so and hits the ringleaders helmet, killing him.
Eupeithes lay dead on the ground with Laertes spear in his head.
Athena, in the form of Mentor, raised her voice to stop the fighting. The men were so frightened at her loud voice that they ran back to the village.
Athena told Odysseus to end this strife or Zeus would be mad with him. Odysseus listen and Athena made a covenant of peace between the two parties.
End this war and make peace with everyone, you have gotten your revenge.
