Last time on Supernatural, a half-man half-goat god eviscerated someone in a failing meatpacking plant in a failing town. Dean and Sam (Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles) investigated this familiar territory one-off, and discovered that the sheriff’s family have a blood sacrifice god legacy, “Hunting people, killing them — the family business!” Turned out the sheriff’s brother was the culprit, after the sheriff shut it down years ago. Kvetch (David Haydn-Jones) went to the bunker and snooped around.

Spoilers below.

Last week on Olympus, we had one of the best episodes yet. King Minos (Alan C. Peterson) and his men captured Athens. Ariadne slit Pallas’s (John Emmet Tracy) throat. Lykos (Wayne Burns) was most upset. He and King Aegeus (Graham Shiels) get thrown in the dungeon. The cliffhanger was a scorpion about to strike a bound Oracle (Sonya Cassidy), thanks to Ariadne (Sophia Lauchlin Hirt). Hero (Tom York) escapes by agreeing to let Minos’s priests (really Medea – Sonita Henry), bleed him for The Lexicon. He stops time and vanishes in front of their eyes.

Last week’s Olympus saw Hero (Tom York) finally make it to Athens and confront his father, King Aegeus (Graham Shiels) which is what he wanted, and his brother Lykos (Wayne Burns), which he did not. Oracle (Sonya Cassidy) is still trapped with King Minos (Alan C. Peterson) and his daughter Ariadne (Sophia Lauchlin Hirt), who is getting pretty frisky. She is only holding them at bay with fake visions and advice. And yay! Daedalus (Matt Frewer) isn’t blind!

Starring Tom York, Sonita Henry, Sonya Cassidy, Wayne Burns, Graham Shiels, Matt Frewer, Cas Anvar, John Emmet Tracy
Syfy
Air Date: Thursday, April 30th, 2015, 10pm

We are on the 5th episode of Syfy’s Olympus and it’s been bloody and funny and crazy. But before we get to that, let’s recap last week’s episode.

The motley crew, Daedalus, Oracle, and Hero (Matt Frewer, Sonya Cassidy, and Tom York) are captured by King Minos (Alan C. Peterson). Daedalus is tortured via bees (bees are inserted into closed box on his head and sting him until he is blind). Hero is tortured via snake and then sexual promises (more like warnings) by Ariadne (Sophia Lauchlin Hirt), and Oracle is in King Minos’s sexual clutches, but she uses her wit and fake visions until he’s saying, “that’s never happened before.” King Aegeus (Graham Shiels) is off his rocker, planning a suicide battle strategy, so Lykos (Wayne Burns) pleads with his mother to do something. She gets him to postpone his idiocy by giving him permission to sacrifice himself and have sex with a priestess. She makes Lykos go fetch Hero in return. This makes Xerxes and Pallas (Cas Anvar and John Emmet Tracy) think she is in league with Minos (found through Lykos’s spy scribe). I have no idea what’s up with this blonde huntress stalking Hero.
