  • OH NO
  • After a bag of stormy winds is opened by Odysseus' crew, they drift off to the island of Aea, home of the witch Circe, the men think her to be an innocent woman, but when they approach her Circe turns the men into pigs.
  • Men really ARE pigs!
  • Odysseus eats an offering given to him by Hermes, it makes him immune to Circe's magic. Impressed, Circe keeps him on the island for 1 year until Odysseus begs for her to change the men back. Circe does and tells him to go into the Underworld.
  • Hmph. Fine.
  • Circe, please!
  • Odysseus and his men enter the Underworld to meet with the seer Tiresias. While there Odysseus meets his dead mother who died of a broken heart, Odysseus is saddened by this fact. He must summon Tiresius using blood.
  • Tiresias is summoned to tell a prophecy to Odysseus, he tells him to not eat the Cattle of Helios or else his crew will all die except for him and he will come home to trouble in Ithaca, this creates temptation.
  • Tell me a prophecy, Tiresias.
  • Do not eat the cows!
  • Odysseus revisits Circe and she tells him to travel the sea again, she tells him of the Sirens, creatures with beautiful voices that lure sailors in to their death. She says he can either plug his ears with beeswax or tie himself to the mast so he can listen to the song, Odysseus chooses the latter and they survive the Sirens
  • The music, it's so wonderful! Untie me!
  • Wha? Can't hear you, Odysseus.
  • La La La La
  • Odysseus finds himself with two choices: Go past the rocky mountain and fight Cylla, a beast with 6 heads or cut across the sea around Charybdis, a giant whirlpool with teeth. Odysseus uses his brain and decides losing six men is better than risking the whole crew.
