Storyboard Text

  • Argos
  • Eumaeus talks to "the beggar"
  • ..."His owner died abroad,..."
  • Archery Contest
  • I will marry one of you if you string my lord's bow, and shoot it through 12 axe heads.
  •  Argos was Odysseus' puppy, but since Odysseus went to war, he never went on a hunt. He got older, and was treated terribly while Odysseus was away. He recognized him, wagged his tail, then passed away.
  • Contest Time
  • Eumaeus, the swineherd,  was talking to Odysseus while he was in his disguise. This is a very ironic moment because Eumaeus is talking about Odysseus to Odysseus.
  • Fighting the Suitors
  • Penelope has lost hope of Odysseus coming back. She truly doesn't want to marry any of the suitors, so she makes a close to impossible challenge for them: an archery contest.
  • Penelope & Odysseus
  • While still in his disguise, Odysseus strung his bow, and shot the arrow through all the axeheads. 
  • Odysseus, his men, and later Athena are up against over 100 suitors. They battled, and then killed all of them. Also, Athena later makes Odysseus "pretty" again.
  • Penelope thinks Odysseus is who he says he is, and tells the servant to make him a bed outside the bedchamber. Odysseus got mad and described the details of the bed that he had made. Penelope knows for sure it's him, and they have a sweet reunion.
