When Odysseus and his men escape Odysseus gives Polyphemus his name and Polyphemus curses him and his men to wander the seas for a long time and all of Odysseus´s men will die and Odysseus will recieve a bitter welcome home.
Scylla & Charybdis
Aeolus gave Odysseus and his men a bag of winds. The Laestrygonians destroyed all the ships but one. Circe turned Odysseus's men into pigs. Odysseus made Circe turn them back and swear not to hurt them. They stayed with her for a year.
The Death of the Suitors
The wind carried Odysseus´s ship to the Underworld. They killed two sheep and let the blood pour into the trench they had dug. Odysseus spoke to the prophet Teiresias who told him what his future had in store, he spoke to his dead mother, as well as Agamemnon and Achilles. He saw Tityus, Tantalus, Sisyphus, and Heracles as well before praying to Perspehone to let him go and going back to the ship to sail away with his men.
Demodocus Sings of the Wooden Horse
Odysseus and his men gave Circe a quick visit and she told him about the sirens as well as Scylla and Charybdis and what he had to do in order to save almost all of his men. Odysseus told his men to plug their ears as they sailed past the sirens and to tie him to the mast of the ship. They got past the sirens unscathed and sailed toward the cliffs of Scylla and Charybdis. They just barely avoided Charybdis and six of Odysseus´s men were devoured by Scylla.
After Odysseus strung the bow and shot it through the rings, he shot Antinous in the throat. Odysseus, Telemachus, and Eumaeus then killed the rest of the suitors with the help of Athene. Odysseus called Penelope down after clearing out all the bodies and he told Penelope who he was.
Demodocus sang of the Trojan Horse because Odysseus asked him to. He sang of the soldiers climbing inside the hollow belly of the horse as the rest of the Greek ships sailed away. The Trojans hauled the horse inside the city walls and offered it to the gods. When night fell and the Trojans slept, the soldiers climbed out of the horse, opened the gates to let the rest of the Greek army in, killed the Trojans, and took back Helen.
