Blood of Zeus (2020) s02e07 Episode Script

The Hidden Realm

If you want justice, you need power.
And there are only two ways to get it.
You either grow stronger,
or you weaken your adversaries.
[gears grinding]
What are you doing?
[dramatic music playing]
[Demeter] What I just unleashed
has one goal.
- [clamoring]
- [gasping]
[Demeter] These spores are parasites.
- They take control of their host.
- [coughing]
[all coughing]
[retches, coughs]
[Demeter] Reproducing again and again
until finally, they explode outwards.
They will kill some mortals
and weaken the gods they infect.
Gods who stand against us.
You can't just unleash this
on the world.
I already have.
Fear not, Hades.
Tonight, the army
of the dead will grow.
And when the others arrive
for the challenge,
they will not be themselves.
All great things come at a cost.
The question is,
do you have the will
to do what must be done?
Think of your family
before you answer.
[theme music playing]
[choir vocalizing]
[woman] Hurry, Heron. Hurry.
Talos is close by.
Are you sure?
- [dramatic music playing]
- [choir singing indistinctly]
[wood creaking]
- [gasps, grunts]
- [horse whinnies]
[Alexia] An Amazonian ship.
What's it doing out here?
[warrior gasps]
[Giant roars]
[warrior] It's going under the boat!
- No!
- [warriors shouting]
[metal grinding]
[grunts, screams]
[crashing, sizzling]
[Giant roars]
[gasps, grunts]
[Heron grunts]
- [grunts]
- [roars]

- [coughs]
Give me the sword.
[metal creaking]
[shouts, gasps]
[metal creaking]
- [gasping]
- [Alexia sighs]
[wood creaking]
[exhales, coughs]
[Chrysanthe] Alexia.
What are you doing here?
I could ask you the same.
Oh, Talos was sinking all of our ships.
It seems that in your eagerness
to save him,
you also saved the Amazonian fleet.
This is Heron and Kofi.
How is it that you saved the gods,
but just now almost lost your life?
Ugh. Don't mind me.
I need to make light of it all,
or I'll go insane.
The truth is nothing makes sense anymore.
The world's gone mad.
Talos sinking ships.
Keres feasting on the living.
I've never seen such unrest.
No one or nothing is safe.
Not even the tree bender.
The tree bender?
They say he was struck with a bident,
which broke his pigheaded skull wide open,
casting him into the very abyss
he sent countless others.
I have to say, the Fates are just.
Who killed him?
The men who witnessed it said
that the one who cut him down
flew away on a chimera
before he could get a good look at him.
Could it have been him?
What happened to you?
[Seraphim] I crossed paths
with the tree bender.
He fared worse than I.
That was Seraphim.
You saved him, like Gaia said you would.
But to what end?
Not sure. No one escapes the Underworld
without Hades' blessing.
Why would Hades help Seraphim?
He's helped him before.
Zeus told me Hades encouraged him
to eat of the Giant flesh,
but Seraphim let the power corrupt him.
And that it could happen to me
if I wasn't careful.
That's what I thought,
until I felt that power
pulse through my veins.
If Seraphim is here to do Hades' bidding,
then the question we must ask is,
"What does Hades want?"
What all gods want.
Power. And there's no greater power
than the Stone.
We can't let Seraphim get it.
Who knows what he'll do with it.
Your mother would be very proud.
I thought I was stronger than a word,
but saying goodbye to you
is the hardest thing I must do.
Until the Fates cross our paths again.
Good luck.
Who was that?
She is my aunt.
You two seem very close.
She raised me.
My mother died giving birth to me,
and my father couldn't bear to look at me.
That's why you decided
to be the fiercest warrior there ever was.
You wanted to show him
that he was wrong in abandoning you.
I know what it's like to hate a father.
It does you more harm than good.
What is your husband up to?
I'm sure I don't know what you mean.
Don't be coy with me.
You two are moving pieces about the board.
Speak now, or you will force my hand.
And then I won't be so understanding.
I have nothing to say to you.
Do what you think you must.
But know we will do the same.
[gears grinding]
You know what to do.
[loud creaking]
Every time I pass,
I contemplate drinking its waters.
For the Lethe erases all memories.
[hesitates] Who are you?
My name is Nobody.
The mystical giant of the mind.
I know what plagues you.
You don't remember who or what you are.
I've come to help you.
To remind you of what you've forgotten.
You are the Curetes.
You were tasked by Gaia
to protect a newborn Zeus.
[Zeus wailing]
[Seraphim] For his father,
the Titan King Cronos,
was told that one of his children
would one day usurp him.
So he swallowed
each newborn child his wife beared.
He also banished the primordial Giants,
the children of Gaia, into the Underworld.
For he feared they were too powerful
and one day would aspire for his throne,
knowing full well that without the sun,
the Giants' strength would wane,
as would their size.
But Zeus' mother Rhea
and grandmother Gaia
[Zeus cooing]
conspired to save him.
But they needed a safe haven
where the young Thunderer
could take refuge.
- [dramatic music playing]
- [choir vocalizing]
[Zeus cooing]
[Seraphim] That's what he found here.
And with Gaia's help,
you protected young Zeus
from Cronos' watchful eyes.
Clashing your swords against your shields,
preventing his cries from being heard.
Keeping him hidden
whenever Cronos was near.
Thus, you became
the guards of this entrance.
The sworn protectors
of the future king of the gods.
And that you must continue to do.
Others will come here soon.
They will ask you
if anyone passed by here.
And you can tell them I did.
That Nobody passed
the hidden realm which Gaia designed,
so that her Giant children
could come visit her
without fear of Cronos' gaze.
That is where I go.
