Storyboard Text

  • Oh Brave King Oedipus, save us from the blight that is killing our country.
  • No worries priest dude. My brother in law is bringing the oracle so he can tell me what to do.
  • The person who killed the late king, Laius, must pay penance for his actions. Only then will the curse be lifted.  Which is you by the way.
  • How do I get rid of this blight?
  • However, I do remember killing a guy and his friends. Could it have been Laius? NO, that's impossible. The prophecy said that Laius's son would kill him. And I am not his son.
  • What does he mean it's me? I didn't kill that king.  I must save my people. Let it be known that the person who DID kill Laius should be banished forever or executed.
  • King Oedipus was confronted by his wife, Laius' old wife.
  • We found you abandoned at the side of the hill. We gave you to the King of Corinth, who raised you as his own. 
  • It seems as if you ARE the child of the prophecy.
  • Sir, these two men claim that you are indeed Laius' son. Which means that you are also my son. 
  • It IS me. Oh no. That means the man I killed that day was King Laius. I am the one who brought this blight down on my people. And on top of that, I married my mother. OMGs.
  • I have been doomed by myself. I will now carry out my earlier decree and banish myself from this land. I was blinded by my pride and refusal to learn the truth.
