  • Before Oedipus came to Thebes, a cart with many men came where three roads meet and Oedipus murdered the men out of self defense.
  • (The one slave who survived)
  • (Oedipus)
  • (Laios)
  • Oedipus tells Jokasta about a prophecy he had before he came to Thebes that said he would kill his father and be his mother's lover, which is the reason he left his home.
  • I would be my mother's lover. I would show the world children no one could bear to look at. I would murder the father whose seed I am.
  • The messenger tells Oedipus that Polybus has died but that he is not his father as Oedipus had thought. The shepherd then tells Oedipus that he was Laios' son and was supposed to die. The truth unfolds.
