One great episode!
24 February 2019 | by hellebenzon-26367See all my reviews

This is a slow pace-episode, but it speaks to your heart! Not a whole lot of action until the end, but it provides a greater look into Eliots' psyche. And takes us back to the consequences of the 50 years Eliot and Quintin spend as lovers/parents. I always thought this would have repercussions, and this could very well be true! What happened to "their" son? It was in Fillory, and way before the Beast (since Jane came and talked to Quintin). What if the son is the new Monster somehow? I can't figure out, how (since he said to Bacchus they were brothers/had the same parents, making him a child of Zeus and Semeles/Persephones/Ammon/Amaltheia) If the mythology holds, I think the monster is Khonsu, (because he is childlike by nature and likes to play games), and since they like to jumble mythology, this seems possible.
