SYNOPSIS:

This synopsis is by Deb Roche

Herc, Iolaus, and Lilith are en-route to visit Alcmene. Lucius sets fire to Almene's village and ties her up in her house. Herc is ticked and vows to go after him.

Jason is in Corith. He is "entertaining" visitors from Crete. They are telling the prince how they have to offer up sacrifices to the Minotaur on a regular basis. Jason is bored. He misses his friends.

Lucius visits his mother. She looks up to the heavens and tells Zeus that they are coming to Olympus to join him.

Jason goes for a walk around town and meets a man named "Theodore" (Aka: Lucius) who stops a thug who stole an old woman's purse. Jason introduces himself to the man and invites him to the castle.

Meanwhile: Back at the village -- Iolaus tries to comfort a little girl who's lost her dog. Iolaus, Herc, and Lilith, help fixing up the destroyed village.

Back in Corinth: Jason tells Theo that he was impressed at how he handled the rope. He mentions the only one he knows who can handle a rope like that is Hercules. Jason goes on about how Herc is a mortal son of Zeus, and who not all of Zeus' sons are good. He tells Theo of Lucius. Theo says he'd love to meet Hercules. Jason says he'll see what he can do. Theo leaves. Jason is suspicious.

Back at the village: Iolaus finds the dog and returns it to the little girl.

Back at the cave: Lucius's mother is upset with him when she learns that Herc is still alive. But when he mentions that he is going to use Herc's friends to destroy him, she lightens up.

Back at the Village: Herc finds a Corinthian Royal banner on the table in the house and realizes that Lucius has gone to Corith.

Back at Corinth: When Herc arrives, Jason wonders who he got here so fast since he just sent word to him. Herc says that he believes that Lucius is in town. Herc says he's going to start looking, and Jason says he'll get a group of guards to help. AS soon as Herc leaves, "Theo" shows up. Jason figures out that Theo is Lucius, and they chase each other around the castle.

They get to the top of a tower and Jason and Lucius face off. Herc arrives. Lucius throws Jason off the tower, but jason manages to grab old of a brick sticking out. Herc and Lucius fight as jason makes his way back up the tower wall.

Jason gets to the top and Lucius kciks him down again. Herc throws jason a rope, wrapping one end around a pole.

Herc and Lucius fight again. Herc gets the upper hand but struggles over whether or not to kill him. The decision is made for him when the rope starts to unwrap from around the pole. Herc dives on the rope, saving Jason. But, Lucius gets away. Again.
