[S1E6] Back To Olympus
Alexia finds Chiron in her journey. The centaur gives her a copy of the map, which he was able to make with mud. The map made its way back, just as Zeus had said. Chiron advises them to approach Melidoni through the Fields of the Dead, where their small force could cross.
[S1E6] Back to Olympus
As referred from the title, this episode starts with a Lucy (Leah Gibson) flashback, though not as back as the others. It shows how a year ago, Lucy came to this town and started swindling Jack (Mark Pellegrino), who in his grief, grasped at straws. Karma really visits this girl, as you will see.

The crowd gathers in front of Vulcan as he gives a speech. Wednesday parks the car and gets out with a bottle of Soma to convince Vulcan to join him in his war. Vulcan finishes his speech and the crowd shoots their guns and rifles up into the air, causing Shadow to flinch. Vulcan tells the crowd to go in peace and Wednesday suggests for Shadow to take cover. Shadow gets back into the car as it starts raining bullets down, denting Betty yet falling harmlessly around Vulcan and Wednesday. After the bullets stop falling, Shadow joins Wednesday and Vulcan, confirming what Vulcan heard about Wednesday's plans to start a war. Vulcan offers to get them something to eat.
Shadow stares at a noose hanging from a tree as Vulcan tells him it was an "old hanging tree." Shadow turns around and when he turns back, the noose is gone. Vulcan offers for them to stay as long as they like while Betty is getting fixed up but Shadow wants to leave. Instead, they head inside Vulcan's house, gratuitously littered with preserved animal carcasses and rifle racks. Vulcan pours a drink for himself and Wednesday, outright denying Shadow anything to drink. He discusses how sacrifices have built up his mini empire and suggests Wednesday could have the same by sacrificing himself as he had done before. Shadows looks uneasily out the window at the hanging tree as Vulcan asks him if he has ever seen anyone hanged before and that it's a terrible way to find faith. Vulcan has "franchised" his worship and he pulls out a gun as he explains that the people believe and worship him through firepower. He aims and shoots at a mounted deer head. Wednesday invites him to join them in Wisconsin but asks him to forge a sword for him first. Vulcan agrees and leaves them alone.
Deep within the factory and over vats of liquid metal, Vulcan forges Wednesday's sword. Wednesday compliments Vulcan on his craftsmanship, favoring it over the manufactured guns Vulcan now makes. Vulcan tells him that he gets more blood spilled in sacrifice with bullets than with blades and Wednesday could use a blood sacrifice of his own. He questions why Wednesday is starting this war and says it sounds like Wednesday is the only one benefiting. Wednesday asks if Vulcan told the New Gods they were in town and Vulcan confirms they are coming. They put power back into Vulcan's hand when he was just a forgotten story and now he is prayed to with bullets. He calls Wednesday a martyr but Wednesday denies it, saying it is actually Vulcan's role. Vulcan pledged allegiance to Wednesday and forged him a blade and the New Gods killed him for it. Wednesday swings the blade and slices Vulcan's head off. He kicks Vulcan into the vat below and watches as he dissolves. Shadow is freaking out as Wednesday hands him the blade and unzips his pants. He urinates into the vat to curse the bullets made.
When the Roman Empire incorporated the Greek gods into their own pantheon, Volcanus, now named Vulcan, became associated with Hephaestus, the Greek god of the forge. Vulcan became the son of Jupiter and Juno, king and queen of the gods, and the divine smith, who forged the weapons, chariots and thrones of the other god. He became the husband of Venus, goddess of love and beauty, and was said to live in his smithy, located under the Etna (a Sicilian volcano). Whenever Venus was unfaithful to him, Vulcan would angrily beat red-hot metals in his smithy, causing rains of sparks and huge dark clouds, resulting in the Etna erupting. Vulcan also assimilated a lot of Hephaestus legends: just like him he became rejected by his mother due to his ugliness, thrown from the top of Olympus, leaving him crippled, raised underwater by the marine deity Thetis and gained back his place in Olympus by imprisoning his mother in a trap shaped like a throne.
To her surprise Elisa is welcomed back to the Eyrie Building; as Owen remarks, Xanatos is not one to hold a grudge. Owen escorts Elisa up to the Castle just before sunset. The Manhattan Clan awakens from their stone sleep and Owen departs. The clan greets Elisa, then the Trio and Hudson leave. Goliath tells Elisa that the rest of his clan is fascinated by the television and hurry every night to watch it. Seeing that Goliath considers Xanatos defeated and the castle theirs, Elisa tries to explain that Xanatos's sentence will be up in six months and that he is still legal owner of the castle. She argues that the gargoyles need to find a new home before Xanatos returns. Goliath refuses to consider leaving the castle.
Lexington continues the argument the next night. Why is it all right to befriend Elisa, but not the Pack? They fight injustice like she does. The rest of the clan backs Lex up, drawing on what they know of the Pack from television. Lex points out that he hasn't revealed where the clan lives or that they sleep in stone by day. He tells Goliath that they need to seek out kindred spirits in this new world or face life hiding in the castle, alone. Goliath reluctantly agrees to go with Lex and meet the Pack. The two gargoyles arrive at a darkened Pack Media Studios. Goliath is wary as the Pack are not in sight and a sudden spotlight's glare, followed by a grenade and gunfire, confirm his suspicions that they have been tricked. Goliath and Lexington flee, but Hyena jumps out and attacks Lex. He charges after her and nearly falls prey to a trap with spikes coming out of the walls before Goliath pulls him out of the way. The gargoyles bash the spikes aside and continue on until metal doors slam shut in front and back of them. From above them, Fox tells the pair that they're in the Gauntlet, a series of traps that the Pack has made lethal in anticipation of the gargoyles' arrival. Goliath smashes through two metal walls and finds an exit to the roof. The Pack sees the gargoyles escaping and rushes outside to begin the hunt.
Goliath and Lexington glide over to a rooftop. They see no sign of the Pack. Lex is furious that the Pack betrayed his trust and calls them nothing more than animals. Goliath feels they're even worse; they hunt not for food, but for the sport. Lex vows to never trust anyone again. Goliath hears something whizzing towards them and a bladed boomerang explodes in front of them. Goliath goes to help Lexington, but Dingo ropes Goliath. Goliath is briefly dragged backwards, but he soon snaps the rope and grabs Lexington. Lex irritably protests that he's all right and the two glide away. As they fly, Jackal tosses a knife at a nearby power line, which breaks and collides with the gargoyles, electrocuting them. Goliath manages to grab hold of a ledge and catch Lex's hand. They climb up the side of the building, but are immediately caught in another explosion. Stunned, they fall to the ground below and lie stunned in the rubble. The Pack creeps in towards the fallen gargoyles and the hunt appears to have ended.
As Goliath and Wolf battle, Fox tells the others to finish the gargoyles while the street is deserted. Jackal and Hyena run at Goliath, but he pulls the plug off a nearby fire hydrant and they are forced back by the spray. Lex points out a fire escape and the gargoyles head up it. Dingo tosses another exploding boomerang at the gargoyles, but fails to hit them. The Pack uses grappling hooks to scale the building. Dingo is startled by a stone gargoyle as he reaches the top and blasts its head off. The Pack quickly realizes that the entire rooftop is covered with stone gargoyles, making their hunt much more difficult. As they search, Jackal realizes Hyena is missing. They turn around as one of her gloves drops behind them. Lexington grabs Dingo's gun and kicks him. Jackal decides to abandon the hunt, but is attacked by Goliath as he leaves. Fox and Wolf try to run, but Goliath catches up with them. He pins them against the roof, which gives way and all three of them fall onto a set where a photo shoot is taking place. Fox grabs one of the models as a hostage. The photographer snaps some pictures of the action. Fox and Wolf make their way out the door with their hostage while Goliath cautiously follows them. As they all exit the building, Lexington dives down at Fox and pins her, knocking her gun away. Wolf grabs Lex off of the unconscious Fox, but tosses him aside in favor of taking on Goliath. The two fight hand to hand and Goliath is victorious, knocking out Wolf. Hearing police sirens approaching, Goliath and Lex leave the scene.

On his decision to leave Sheehan said "It's nice that the show's successful but it doesn't mean complete blind and unadmonished loyalty - 'If something is very successful you should stick to it like a barnacle!' That's definitely not my thinking. I think I've made the right decision, yeah". On a possible return Sheehan said "There's no point in saying never. It holds a very fond little place in my heart. No, it's been a great big part of my life and there's no point in turning your back on something completely. I'm not doing that, I would never say never". 041b061a72
