Hero Cursed
28 June 2015 | by bondzaSee all my reviews

Now I have to say for the first time I am super impressed with how Olympus delivered strongly. Most of the other episodes were good but this one just nailed it. I don't know what to say except that many things started adding up like the differences between King Aegeus's two sons: Hero and Lykos. Also Hero finally gets his name at the naming ceremony that is led by the king himself. I also found Hero's personal issues come into play in this episode. It makes me feel sorry for him as the audience because he is unable to enjoy the simple things that life has to offer. Companionship is one example in which it's revealed that he can't have a wife, a son, and a normal family. The reason why is because he knows that he is cursed and that the curse will be passed on to his son if he chooses to have children. The only thing I didn't like was that I have a feeling that the battle for Athens reached something almost like a stalemate. Let's just say that is not the way I would have ended this particular episode of Olympus if it were up to me. Other than that I loved it.
