In Review: Atlantis – Dying Of The Light

The Oracles prophecy has come true - the news that Pasiphae is his mother has blackened Jason's heart and he bears little resemblance to the hero we all know and love.

Synopsis: The Oracles prophecy has come true – the news that Pasiphae is his mother has blackened Jason’s heart and he bears little resemblance to the hero we all know and love.

Review: This continues from events of last week and sees Jason in a very dark place. So dark that he murders one of Pasiphae’s soldiers when he is trying to surrender and pretty much shuns everyone’s offers of help and support.

Once again much of the plot is moved forward through Pythagoras as he sneaks back into the City to get help and advice from the new Oracle on how he can possibly help his friend Jason, but unfortunately he is betrayed by his close friend in an act of desperation to get his father out of jail. Which allows Pasiphae and her soldiers to follow Pythagoras and lead her to Jason and his friends, who are hiding out in the mountains.

The episode also allows a little more exploration of the uneasy relationship that was formed earlier in the second series between Jason and Medea, who once again is played by Amy Manson.

Once again Sarah Parish steals the show as the driven and manipulative Pasiphae.

It will be interesting to see how Jason reacts once he learns the true fate of his father, who Pythagoras has found in an effort to shake Jason from the dark place he is in.
