"Thetis had to be always on her grind."
Mythology has a lot of terrible dads. For once, let's talk about an excellent mother! Thetis did the MOST for her son, Achilles (even when she probably shouldn't). But as Darien (she/her) and DJ (he/him) learn, not even a goddess can save her son from a prophecy.
Other topics include Achilles having no chill, DJ's stance on the Ares v. Apollo Flying Chariot Conflict, Darien coming dangerously close to saying a popular myth retelling isn't good, and the mind-blowing connection between Thetis, Sally Jackson, and May Castellan.
Spoilers for Lore Olympus, Hades, Clash of the Titans (1981)
