Storyboard Text

  • Honey
  • Alas the unhappy mother of the noblest son.
  • What sorrow has come to your heart? Speak it out, do not hide it.
  • What pleasure in these things is there for me when my dear companion Patroklos has died.?
  •  Thetis is devastated at hearing Achilles' cries. Her sisters come to comfort her and she talks to them, reminiscing over Achilles' childhood and giving assertions that he is soon to die. She resolves to visit him.
  • May you have infinite grief in your heart for the son who has died. My heart neither commands me to live nor be among men :(
  • Thetis leads her sisters to Achilles and the Greek ships. She wails and takes his head, asking him why he is crying and reminding Achilles that Zeus had fulfilled his wish for his absence from war to be felt. 
  • You will be doomed to a short life, my son, from what you say
  • May I die, seeing as I couln't save Patroklos
  • Achilles explains that he is crying over Patroklos' death (and also Hektor's audacity to steal his armour). He says he wishes that Thetis had never married his father.
  • Achilles wishes extreme grief upon his mother and says that he has no will to live unless he can kill Hektor to pay him back for Patroklos.
  •   Thetis warns Achilles that, with an attitude like that, he is likely to die soon after killing Hektor. Achilles counters by saying that he wishes to die because he couldn't save Patroklos or any other companions who died fighting Hektor (cue big-headed boasting about Achilles' battle skills).
  • Achilles says that he hopes that strife and anger (which mounts up like smoke but is much sweeter than trickling honey... duh) between him and Agamemnon will be overcome through necessity. He vows to come upon Hektor, despite the threat this may pose to his life.
