Last week on Olympus, Hero (Tom York) met Future Hero, who didn’t really give him any good news or news at all. Turns out he has to kill Love. We all know that’s the Oracle (Sonya Cassidy), except for maybe Hero, but he’s a guy, and very innocent in the ways of women, so what does he know? He and Medea (Sonita Henry) join forces. Yuck! Lykos’s (Wayne Burns) lover and scribe, Kimon (Levi Meaden), is also his bastard brother. Aegeus (Graham Shiels) grows them on trees, doesn’t he? Lady Magus dies at the tricky hands of Hero, and in her sister Medea’s arms. What?

Two weeks ago, on Olympus, Hero (Tom York) is home with his loving family – Aegeus (Graham Shiels) who tries to strangle him and whom hero has no respect for, Medea (Sonita Henry), who does seems like she cares a little plus he actually does respect her, and Lykos (Wayne Burns), who has a jealous fit to his mother. I mean, who can blame the guy? She IS his mother, and he did let her bleed him extensively. Pallas’s (John Emmet Tracy) treason was found out, thanks to clever Medea. Aegeus threw his ass in jail.

What happened last week on this colorful and cheesy mythological drama?

On Olympus 1.3 “Ring Of The Magi,” Oracle (Sonya Cassidy) sees that Aegeus (Graham Shiels) will destroy Athens. They get captured AGAIN, but Hero (Tom York) is able to retrieve the ring, needed in conjunction with the Lexicon (which is inside Hero). Lykos (Wayne Burns) continues to impress Pallas (John Emmet Tracy) and Xerxes (Cas Anvar) with his war plans. The latest – poison the food of the Minoans to strike them down. He asks his mother Medea (Sonita Henry) for poison and she panics thinking he knows she’s been poisoning his dad. Plus, the two conspirators plan to kill her in plain sight. She can’t manage to wake up Aegeus. Luckily, he wakes up in the nick of time and acts like a giant jerk to her and Lykos, but at least she’s alive.

We are up to episode 3 of Syfy’s new Greek mythology series, Olympus, and again, a solid episode. The setting is what gets me. The colors and the large, epic statues, sure look more Sharknado than Gotham, but I think I expect it from this decadence.

Olympus 1.3 “Ring of the Magi” review: This is the quirkiest little myth show! Xerxes (Cas Anvar) and Pallas (John Emmet Tracy) conspire to kill Medea (Sonita Henry), but I’m pretty sure someone was listening. I think she’s regretting the poisoning of her husband. She may need his protection, but he won’t come out of it. Ask the other woman!

Lykos (Wayne Burns) comes up with yet another brilliant strategy to defeat King Minos. He probably should really be the king. I don’t get the secrecy between him and his scribe. Wasn’t homosexuality accepted in this culture? Why all the hush hush?
