Approach to the Inmost Cave
Theseus decides to leave against his father's wishes and goes to Minos. Aegeus pleads Theseus not to go, but Theseus believes it's his fate to go. He then leaves and sails to Crete to defeat the Minotaur.
The Road Back
Theseus goes into the cavernous Labyrinth, an elaborate maze. He battles the Minotaur and eventually kills him. Theseus then leaves the maze by retracing his steps by a string that he left on his way in.
After his successful battle with the Minotaur, Theseus was able to leave. He went back to his home to his gracious father. He also took Ariadne with him, his soon to be consort.
Return with the Elixir
Theseus was so happy while he was sailing home. In fact, he was so happy that he forgot to change the sails from black to white. The black sails signified death.
I'm a hero!!
When the king saw his son's ship he was distraught. He saw the black sail and assumed his Theseus was dead. He was so upset that he committed suicide.
Theseus learned carelessness. He learned that he should be more careful and not to drown in his own success.
