** It's a CallBack to ''The Last Olympian'', too. When Hades cursed the Oracle of Delphi, he meant it to last until his children were no longer scorned and ostracized. Hazel's first life was miserable, Bianca was happy for the short time she was a Hunter, then died miserably because she felt guilty about leaving Nico. This is something that's been weighing on Hades for a ''long'' time.

* Similar to the forced coming out in ''House of Hades'', Percy's confession to Jason that [[DeathSeeker he intentionally endangered himself in battle]] rang a little too true to a lot of readers. While it's unlikely that anybody reading this ever used divine power to choke and torture a goddess, the obvious desperation and self-blame is achingly familiar. --->'''Percy:''' Thing is, as I was choking just now, I kept thinking: this is payback for Akhlys. The Fates are letting me die the way I tried to kill her. And...honestly, a part of me felt like I deserved it.

* Hades telling Nico that few of his children end being happy (hoping that Nico will be an exception). You know he's right, and you can see how much it hurts him.

You know he's right, and you can see how much it hurts him.him. ** Doubly tear-inducing because of the contrast with the rest of the series; outside of this moment and maybe a couple from the previous series, none of the gods really seem to care whether or not their children are happy. They care that they survive and bring their parent honor, yes, but not whether they're ''happy''.

* As heartwarming as the final chapter was, [[spoiler: Leo doesn't have a way to tell anyone that he's alive after all, so his friends will still think he's dead. We also don't know how much time passes in Ogygia, so even if Leo and Calypso find a way back into the mortal world, it could be years and years since the Final Battle (and Leo's 'death') and Leo could potentially and unintentionally outlive his friends in that aspect.]]

Which means it's possible [[spoiler:Calypso is once again out there waiting for a hero who will never return for her]]. --->[[spoiler:It might even be possible to tell a new story in which Leo was still out there.

* In ''The Blood of Olympus'' [[spoiler: Nico thinks of the Plato story that once men and women were conjoined but split by the gods because they feared their strength and that was why men and women fell and love. He then asks himself what that means for him.]]

** Even worse if you know the original story: [[spoiler: there actually were both homosexual and heterosexual couples. But Nico comes from a time when homosexuality was actually ''illegal'', meaning most likely the homosexual pairs were deliberately left out of the myths. It makes you think once again how harder coming from the past is making it all for Nico.]]
