Rewatched this tonight with roommates, who hadn't seen it yet.

It is a woeful fact that if I can't wait to watch the ep with the roommates the first time, it means I have to watch it again when I show it to them later, even if it's bad.

This episode was so fundamentally stupid, y'all. You can't kill Zeus. You cannot. No. Nor can you save everyone's bacon by guessing that Artemis, the virgin goddess, might have a little romantic entanglement. No. More likely she'd knife you through the skull, you insolent and myth-ignorant slug. (No offense, Sam.)

Basically I hated all parts of this having to do with the actual case, except for Hailey, poor lady, whom I found very relatable, with very realistic reactions to "Oh hey your kid's dad is divine."

OTOH, you know what I reeeeally want now? I want a gradual trend of hunters praying to Artemis again. I want her to be confused when, like, Krissy and Josephine call on her in their time of need. And maybe she helps them just because it’s so novel, having someone pray to her again, or because they’re hers, they’ve always been hers, these humans battling feebly against the night, and they’ve just forgotten.

Even better, in the course of this we also learn that she loved Prometheus like a brother or similar, partly/mostly for how he aided her hunters against the monsters by gifting humanity with fire.

Totally. The episode was boring on top of all the lore bullshittyness.

That was the worst! I'd still fuss about ruining the mythology, but I could have dealt if the results had actually been, you know, not mind-numbingly boring. I literally could not sit through the entire confronting-Zeus scene yesterday; I had to go get ice cream while my roommates watched.

I thought your praying to Artimis idea was v. cool too!

Also, it wasn't only boring; it was cheap! 8 years of raises have really decimated the budget I guess?
