rocky balboa has been with his trainer for his whole fighting career. before his first fight his trainer became ill and died in rockies arms.
My trainer has died and doesn't want me to fight tonight because he doesn't think I will win!
Rocky realizes how important his trainer is to him and doesn't want to fight without his trainer. He needs to go away to handle his feelings before his next fight. If he has one.. this relates to how Gilgamesh felt after he lost his best friend Enkidu.
why have you left me by myself, I am full of despair. I can't fight anymore without you.
A few years ago Rocky had to fight Apollo Creed and now he is here to help Rocky complete his goal of victory. this scene relates to gilgamesh talking with the scorpions at the gate.
"Filled with fear" Apollo??, what are you doing here?
I'M HERE TO HELP YOU TRAIN. You have to win this upcoming match for your trainer, and for yourself.
Apollo explains to rocky that this will be like no training he has ever experiences. But Rocky is still very upset about his trainer passing. This scene relates to the scorpions telling Gilgamesh that his journey is for no mortal man.
we're traveling to my hometown for you to train. This journey will be like nothing you've experienced before.
Rocky is still very upset but in the pitch black, Rocky and Apollo go to their home. This scene is representing the 12 leagues of darkness Gilgamesh had to travel through.
KEEP PUSHING YOURSELF!! We need to work hard if you are going to win.
