Love your recap! You really put some thought into this episode.

On the whole I really enjoyed this ep, but it occurred to me as I was watching that the show can lack subtlety and balance. Jason's descent into darkness was consuming, it buried him, there was nothing left of him in this episode and it was a bit much, I would have preferred to have seen more of a struggle, a more gradual loss of himself.

Similarly with Hercules, I like your reasoning for why he laid the blame for medusas death squarely at Jason's feet but again it felt like too much.

But apart from that, much enjoyed this episode, have rewatched it many times already. Is it wrong that I found murderous Jason super sexy? Yeah, that's probably wrong.

Thanks. These reviews are getting longer and longer, but it is fun to poke and prod the plot and characters like this.

Yes, Jason's turn to the dark side was a bit unsubtle. I suppose they wanted to underline the changes, so they had to go way over the top. But I have to admit, I mostly thought he came across as a moody, sulky brat, rather than an angsty tortured hero. Which is a shame.
