Headscratchers / Class of the Titans

  • Okay, so, how hard do you have to squint in order to classify Narcissus as a "hero"?
    • Also, Narcissus was literally turned into a flower in the original myth - how was Neil his descendant?
      • To the first: well... each of the main characters could be said to embody an attribute that the Greeks considered heroic, and beauty would definitely be on that list. And to be fair, even Cronus has lampshaded this. To the second: hell, why does Jason have any descendants? Didn't his bloodline sort of end when Medea killed their sons?
      • Narcissus could have fathered a child prior to the incident that led him to become obsessed with his own reflection and later turned into a flower. As for Jason, it's equally possible that he fathered a child with someone else prior to his marriage to Medea, and Jay is the descendant of that child. How probable either of these scenarios might be is open to debate, but they are possible.
    • Speaking of how the heck anyone is descended from these characters, one episode has a descendant of Medea fighting with Jay over the fact that Jason betrayed Medea. So did Medea have children by someone else too?
      • I once heard a theory that Medea didn't kill her children, she merely drugged them. I don't remember the trope name, but the idea of being drugged into a death-like sleep is nothing new.
  • In one episode, the team goes to great lengths to design a trap for Cronus that consists partly of a one way portal directly to his cell in Tartarus. At the end of the episode, the plan falls apart but Cronus still falls into the portal and winds up in his old cell. Cronus is beaten, series over. Except... in the next episode he's free again, and he was never shown escaping from his cell a second time. What gives?
