Storyboard Text

  • Penelope is Awoken from her Slumber
  • "Wake,Penelope,dear child, so that, with your own eyes, you can see what all your days you have been longing for. Odysseus is here, he is in the house, though late in his coming; and he has killed the haughty suitors"
  •  "Dear nurse, the gods have driven you crazy". You're lucky you've been here awhile or I would feed you to my goat
  • Penelope Doesn't Believe  the Nurse 
  • "Come, dear nurse, and give me a true account of the matter, whether he really has come back to his house, as you tell me, to lay his hands on shameless suitors," 
  • That isn't right! He isn't Odysseus, just some strange hobo. 
  • Penelope Realizes...
  • "There I found Odysseus standing among the dead men" 
  • Dad?
  • Penelope is awoken by the nurse after Odysseus has slaughtered all the suitors. The nurse gives the news that Odysseus has finally returned after 20 years, but Penelope is in too much shock to believe her and is more mad that she was awoken. 
  • Who's the Man Behind the Mask?
  • "We shall find other ways, and better, to recognize each other, for we have signs that we know of." 
  • "Telemachos, leave your mother to examine me in the palace as she will, and presently she will understand better." 
  • Penelope, still in her room, still doubts the fact that Odysseus is actually downstairs and refuses to check. 
  • The REAL Discovery
  • Odysseus then trims the tree and makes a bed post out of it like Penelope says
  • "Come then, Eurykleia, and make up a firm bed for him outside the well-fashioned chamber: that very bed that he himself built." 
  • Penelope finally realizes that Odysseus is actually home, and her "mind is blown". Telemachos talks to her and convinces her she needs to stop being stubborn and talk to her husband after so long. 
  • True Love 
  • "They then gladly went together to bed, and their old ritual."
  • After Athene gives Odysseus a total makeover, him and Penelope talk. In order to find out if Odysseus is who he really says, Penelope quizzes him with the things only the two of them know. 
  • Penelope tells Odysseus to make a bed post out of an olive tree just like the old Odysseus would have.
  • After all of the obstacles Odysseus has been through to get to where he is today, Penelope is finally reunited with her love and they celebrate like the old days.
