While the Greeks line up for battle, Zeus tells Them
is to line up the gods. Only the Ocean who holds the
earth in place is excluded. Zeus says he will stay on
Olympus, but the other gods are to go down to hel
p the Greeks or Trojans. The Trojans need help bec
ause otherwise Achilles will contravene fate by de
stroying the walls of Troy.
Hera Athena Poseido
Achilles wants to fight Hector, but Apollo tries t
o make Aeneas go against Achilles. Achilles says i
t's foolish to go against him, since he is always
accompanied by a god. Apollo tells Aeneas to s
ummon his own deity -- Aphrodite, who, Lycaon- A
pollo says, is stronger than Achilles' personal
maternal deity, Thetis.
Hera sees Aeneas advancing and calls to Poseidon
and Athena, telling them to turn him back or stan
d by Achilles to provide assistance. Poseidon says
they should leave the war to the mortals.
Poseidon summons the gods. Aeneas has always hon
ored he gods, so Poseidon wants to save him and sa
ys he is needed to carry on the race of Dardanus. A
thena and Hera won't help, so Poseidon pours mist
over Achilles' eyes and tosses Aeneas out of the wa
y. He tells Aeneas he is playing the madman and tha
t he should wait until Achilles is dead before he fi
ghts again. Poseidon then lifts the mist over Achill
es' eyes. Achilles sees that a miracle has been perf
ormed. His spear is there, but Aeneas has vanished.
Achilles starts killing Trojans. When Hector sees
Achilles kill his brother Polydorus, he throws his
spear at Achilles, but Athena deflects it. Achilles c
harges at Hector, but Apollo whisks Hector away in
a mist -- three times. Achilles taunts that next tim
e they fight, he will kill Hector. Then Achilles resu
mes his killing spree.
