In this week’s episode we find the Trojans getting beat pretty badly by the Greeks, so Helenus (a soothsayer and Hector’s brother) tells Hector to go back to Troy and get the women to sacrifice to Athena. While he’s back in town Hector visits his brother and chastises him for not returning to the battlefield. But then Hector goes and visits his wife and newborn son.
Meanwhile, on the battlefield, Agamemnon chastises Menelaus for taking prisoners, and Diomedes and Glaucus fight, but find out their grandpappies were buddies… so they decide to exchange armor and agree to a personal truce.
We try to tease out in this episode: who is Hector? How does he compare to Agamemnon and Achilles?
