Oedipus: Present Representation
This storyboard does not have a description.
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.
