Medea by Euripides

Characters: Nurse, Tutor, Medea, Chorus of Corinthian Women, Creon (king of Corinth), Jason, Aegeus (king of Athens), Messenger, Medea’s 2 children

Scene: in front of Jason’s house in Corinth

  • Nurse: If only the Argo had never gone to Colchis. If only the boat had never been built. If only they’d never looked for the golden fleece, Medea would never have met Jason, fallen in love with him, gone with him to Iolcus, conspired with Pelias’s daughters to kill him. She would never have come to Corinth with Jason & their children. But she received a warm welcome from the people – even if she was a foreigner.
    • Now her world’s gone very dark. Jason’s betrayed her & his own sons to marry Glauce, the daughter of the Corinthian king, Creon. Having been betrayed, she’s gone crazy. She goes around repeating the vow Jason made her. She talks to the gods about her treatment. She doesn’t eat. She only sulks in misery. Ever since over her father, her homeland to come to a place where she’s been abandoned. She hates her sons. I’m afraid she’s up to no good. She doesn’t take defeat very well. [TUTOR & MEDEA’s 2 SONS ENTER]
  • Tutor: Nurse, why are you talking to yourself? What’s going on? Why is Medea alone?
  • Nurse: Medea’s getting to me. I had to get out of the house to tell the gods about it.
  • Tutor: Has she stopped crying yet?
  • Nurse: Stopped? She’s only just started.
  • Tutor: Well, she’s probably not heard the worst of it.
  • Nurse: What?!
  • Tutor: Oh. I should have kept it to myself. Never mind.
  • Nurse: You have to tell me. I can keep a secret.
  • Tutor: I was out near where the old men sit, & I overheard them talking. Creon, the King, plans to banish these 2 boys & Medea too. But I don’t know if it’s true.
  • Nurse: Jason won’t stand by & watch his sons be banished. Even if it’s with their mother. Things really don’t look good if it’s in addition to what’s been going on.
  • Tutor: You didn’t hear anything. & definitely don’t tell Medea.
  • Nurse: If he weren’t my master, I’d curse Jason. He’s betrayed everyone near & dear to him.
  • Tutor: No man is innocent. Everyone loves himself more than his neighbor. These boys have meant nothing to their father since he’s fallen in love.
  • Nurse: Boys, go inside [THE BOYS GO INSIDE]. Keep them away from her. She watches them like a wild animal watches prey. She won’t rest until she’s taken it out on someone [MEDEA SCREAMS FROM INSIDE]
  • Medea: Oh! What misery! I wish I were dead!
  • Nurse: Listen to that. She’s in agony. Keep those boys away from her. She’ll do a lot of damage in her state [TUTOR GOES IN]. Those cries are only the beginning. This pain will be fueled by the insult of being exiled.
  • Medea: [FROM INSIDE] I’m suffering. I’ve been betrayed. Children, your mother is hated & you are curse. Death will take you, your father & the whole house.
  • Nurse: Poor thing. What do those boys have to do with their father’s wickedness? Why hate them? I’m terrified for the boys. That woman only gives commands & does not obey them. Once her rage is up, it won’t be appeased. It’s better to be a commoner & live a simple life. To be rich & powerful is no blessing. Once the gods get angry, bad things happen. [A CHORUS OF CORINTHIAN WOMEN ENTERS]
  • Chorus: We heard the voice of the unhappy women from Colchis. She’s still crying & not calm yet. Our heart suffers along with her.
  • Nurse: Jason’s house is done for. He is a prisoner in a princess’s bed. Medea’s is her room crying her eyes out & no one can help her.
  • Medea: [STILL INSIDE] Flames from the sky. Strike me dead. Come on & take me!!
  • Chorus: Zeus, do you hear that? [THEY ADDRESS MEDEA] What is this madness? Is death what you want? If Jason’s found a new wife, why wish for death? What a waste of life & energy.
  • Medea: Themis & Zeus, he promised me everything & he broke his vow. I want to see Jason & his new bride destroyed. I betrayed my city & father. I killed my brother for him.
  • Nurse: She’s invoking Themis now, hearer of prayers & Zeus, the guardians of oaths. It’s serious.
  • Chorus: I wish she’d come out to talk to us. If she’d listen, maybe she’d calm down. Nurse, go try to bring her out. Tell her we’re on her side. Do it before she hurts herself.
  • Nurse: I’ll try but I don’t think it’ll work When any of us servants approaches her, she glares at us like a wild animal. The men of old used to sing celebratory songs to people who were already happy. Why aren’t there songs to get rid of pain? Sorrows lead to death & disaster. What’s the point of music if it only is played to people who are already happy. [NURSE ENTERS THE HOUSE TO GET MEDEA]
  • Chorus: I heard her carrying on, shouting, accusing her husband. She invoked Themis & Zeus, who witnessed the vows made that brought her from Asia to Greece.
  • Medea: [COMES OUTSIDE] I’m out here, ladies. There’s no justice in this world. Look at why I’ve been writhing around in pain. I’m foreign & know my place. But I couldn’t account for this. It’s crushing. There’s no pleasure left in life. I want to die. Jason knows he was my whole life. No we all see him as the slime ball he is.
    • Women are truly wretched. A man can buy a wife & she has to accept her body as owned by him. Women don’t know if they’ll marry a good man or bad. Women can’t divorce respectably. We can’t repel them either.
    • A foreign woman facing new laws & customs needs magic to find her way & know how to treat her husband. If she succeeds & her husband’s doing well, her life is enviable. Otherwise, death looks good. If a man gets bored at home, he can go outside & amuse himself. Wives can only look to their husbands. We’re told we’re safe at home while they go out to battle. I’d rather go to battle than bear a child. But you all have your city, your father’s home, your lives & friends. I’m all alone with no city, no husband. I was taken as plunder & have no family at all. Now, I just want revenge on Jason. A woman may be weak in war but she’s an absolute savage in marriage.
  • Chorus: We’ll keep quiet. Punishing Jason will be just [CREON ENTERS]
  • Creon: You, Medea. I order you to leave Corinth. Take your sons & go. Don’t waste anytime. I’m not leaving you until you’ve gone.
  • Medea: Now, this is really the end of my life. My enemies have launched a full attack on me. Why are you kicking me out?
  • Creon: I’m afraid you’ll attack my daughter. You’re clever & skilled in the dark arts. You’ve been dumped by Jason & you’re angry. You’ve been making threats of revenge on Jason & his new bride, my daughter. So I’m preempting you & kicking you out.
  • Medea: My reputation is a curse & my ruin. What do you have to gain by being so clever? You’ll neglect your own affairs & cause your citizens to hate you. There are fools who call you ignorant & useless. When you offer them new knowledge. Those who are thought of as intelligent won’t stand for you being placed above them. They’re jealous. What are you afraid of? That some harm may come to you? I’m in no position to harm you. I hate my husband but you were correct in your actions. Good luck to all of you. But why drive me out of Corinth? I’ll keep quite & calm.
  • Creon: You talk nicely but I shudder to think of what you’re plotting. I actually trust you less now than before. You’re short-tempered & dangerous. So leave. I’ve made my mind up.
  • Medea: I bow to you but ask your daughter.
  • Creon: Don’t even try it.
  • Medea: No pity?
  • Creon: None. I love my family more than yours.
  • Medea: You’re kicking me out of Corinth, my only home.
  • Creon: I love Corinth too but next only to my daughter.
  • Medea: Love has an evil power in people’s lives. Zeus, remember who started this.
  • Creon: Get out. Take my troubles with you.
  • Medea: I don’t need any more than what I have. But before you kick me out, my I ask you thing? [SHE CLINGS TO HIM] Let me stay the rest of the day. I need to come up with a plan for where I & my 2 sons will go. This needs to be planned well for their sake.
  • Creon: I’m no tyrant. My soft heart betrays me. I may regret this, but OK. But you need to be gone by tomorrow morning or you’ll die [CREON LEAVES]
  • Chorus: Poor Medea. Where are you going to go? Where will you be safe?
  • Medea: It looks bad now but things won’t end as they look. The newlyweds won’t get off easily, nor their friends & family. Do you think I begged Creon out of anything except for my own purposes? He fell for my plan. One day is plenty for me to get revenge on the 3 – the father, daughter & my husband. There are so many ways to kill them. Fire? Stabbing? I’m only afraid of getting caught or dying, & not being about to carry it out. They’d win… Maybe poison?
    • If they die, where would I go? I don’t know. Maybe if a sign appears. I can carry out my task. But if I have to leave without a place to go, I’ll just stab them with a sword & deal with the consequences.
    • Queen Hecate, whom I adore, will be my accomplice. I’ve been dedicated to her for some time. With her help, they’ll pay for what they’ve done… Let’s get this plan sorted out… This has to be just right… [TURNS TO CHORUS] We women are useless for honest purposes but skilled in practicing evil.
  • Chorus: Things are upside down. Men are now the deceivers. Men’s oaths are gods’ dishonor. Things will change. Females will be honors & all that talk about us being 2-faced will change. Male poets have always spoke of faithless women but it won’t continue for long. We were never spoke of very well. We’ll write stories of how wicked men have been & can be.
    • Medea, you left your father’s house to travel to a foreign land. You’ve lost your marriage & now you’re exiled. There’s no more honor in the Greek world. You can’t go home. Your husband’s moved on. [ENTER JASON]
  • Jason: I don’t understand you. If you had just accepted the way things are quietly, you wouldn’t have to leave. But you shot your mouth off & now you’ve been banished. I’m unmoved by what you say about me. But what you said about the king & princess – you’re lucky just to be banished. I’ve tried to calm them down but you won’t shut up. So now you have to leave. I will see that you & the boys have adequate funds. I know you hate me but I still want you to do well.
  • Medea: You coward! You’re not helping. You’re only betraying me again. Since you’re here, I’ve got something to say to you. I’ll start from the beginning…
    • You were sent on a quest that every Greeks knows a bout. But do they know that I was the one who killed the snake on the Golden Fleece? That I deceived my father & ran away from home? That I went with you to Iolcus & has Pelias put to death by convincing his daughters to the dead? In return for this, you throw me out & get yourself another wife. I had your 2 sons. If I’d been childless, I’d understand. But you’ve broken your vows. Do you think the gods’ laws don’t apply to you? You’ve broken them. You’ve made a mockery of me & them.
    • But I have to ask for your advice? Where can I go? Home? The place I betrayed for you? To Iolcus? Whose ruler & got killed? I’ve ruined every relationship I’ve had just for you. I have nothing & nowhere to go. Oh, Zeus, why couldn’t you have made the signs for good & bad clearer?
  • Chorus: The worst angers are those in dealing with love.
  • Jason: I’d better say this right because if I don’t, madness will follow. As for what you’ve done for me… The real credit goes to Aphrodite who sent you to me. You are smart & what you did for me was great BUT you got far more from me than you gave. I took you out of a barbarian land to Greece. Here we have justice,. You’ve been recognized in your skills, achieved fame. You’ve done better than me.
    • My new marriage was good for me & our sons. It has little to do with passion. When we got to Corinth life was wearing me down. Meeting the king’s daughter was lucky. You were also wearing on me. I wanted a bigger family but I wanted to live well. Poor people don’t have powerful friends. I want my sons to grow up worthy of my descent & with more brothers. I’d give you access to my glory. I thought since you were finished having kids, I could have more with someone else. But you women don’t want to know sometimes & just switch it off.
  • Chorus: Jason, you may have a point but you’re abandoningyour wife!!
  • Medea: Eloquent men are wicked because they justify themselves with fancy words. But you’re a liar & words can never cover up your actions.
  • Jason: It doesn’t matter what I say when you’re like this.
  • Medea: It’s a mid-life crisis. Now you have a slightly inconvenient foreign wife & a willing princess…
  • Jason: I’m getting married to a royal for the future of my children & you will benefit.
  • Medea: Your future is doomed & I want no part of it.
  • Jason: You’ll change your mind once you’ve calmed down from your temper tantrums.
  • Medea: Go ahead & insult me. You’re all set up & I’ve been thrown out of town.
  • Jason: That was your own choice. Don’t blame me.
  • Medea: My choice? You abandoned your wife & kids.
  • Jason: You threw a fit & threatened the royal family.
  • Medea: Their house has brought a curse on me.
  • Jason: I can’t do this anymore. If I can do anything for you now, I’ll do it. To turn down help is crazy. You’ll do well to stop being enraged.
  • Medea: I won’t deal with any of your friends & I won’t take help from a traitor.
  • Jason: Well, I just wish the best for you. You won’t accept any help.
  • Medea: Get out of here. You’re probably lusting after that new wife of yours [JASON LEAVES]. God, listen to my words. Put their marriage to an end.
  • Chorus: Intense love is not good for a soul. I hope it doesn’t come to me. If Aphrodite graced us with moderation, we wouldn’t need the other gods. However, I would like to honor my vows & those of others. I wish to choose relationships wisely. I hope I never get kicked out of my home city & be completely homeless. That would destroy me. I’ve seen this happen before. I doesn’t look good for Medea. No one will help you. Death is better than not helping out one’s friends. In fact, they’re hardly friends at all. [AEGEUS, KING OF ATHENS ENTERS]
  • Aegeus: Hello, Medea. I hope all is well.
  • Medea: Hello. Where are you coming from?
  • Aegeus: I’ve just come from the Oracle of Delphi to ask for children. My wife & I have been childless for some time. But I don’t understand what the Oracle said. Maybe you can help decipher it. The line was, “not to unstop the wineskin’s neck until you return home safely.”
  • Medea: Why are you in Corinth?
  • Aegeus: I came through here to ask Pittheus, king of Troezen, to help me interpret the riddle. But you don’t look well yourself. What’s wrong with you?
  • Medea: My evil husband betrayed me. He has a new wife. I’ve been thrown out of the house because he’s in love with someone else. He’s not someone you can trust.
  • Aegeus: Then it seems that you are better off without him, then.
  • Medea: Well, she’s a royal, Creon’s daughter. That makes sense for him. But she’s convinced Creon to kick me out of Corinth too.
  • Aegeus: What does Jason make of all of this?
  • Medea: He’s not happy but somehow he’s coping. I’m asking you to help me out. I’m an exile. Please don’t leave me friendless. Can I stay with you in Athens? I can help you have children.
  • Aegeus: It seems the right thing to do to help you. Plus, you can help me with my problem. OK. Just find a way to Athens. I can’t be seen to be helping you so openly. I can’t piss off Corinth. But if you can get to Athens, I’ll take you in.
  • Medea: Just promise me. Swear it to the gods because with all the enemies I have, I have no legal recourse if you don’t follow through.
  • Aegeus: Very wise. OK. I swear to take you in & not kick you out.
  • Medea: Thank you. I’ll be in Athens once I finish up here. [AEGEUS LEAVES]
  • Chorus: Let’s hope that Hermes, the patron of travelers looks after him.
  • Medea: Justice! Sun! Zeus! I’m going to win! My enemies will get what they deserve. Just when I thought I was down & out, Aegeus comes to town. Once I get to Athens, I’ll be safe. Now I can reveal my plans. [NURSE RE-ENTERS & LISTENS]
    • I’ll ask Jason to come & I’ll smooth things over with him, lulling him into a false sense of security. I’ll ask for the kids to be able to stay. But I have no real plans to do that. I’ll send gifts to the palace… a dress woven in god but poisonous to the touch.
    • What really hurts me is that I’ll have to kill my sons. No one will take them away from me. I’ll ruin Jason’s life & leave Corinth a murderess. I can deal with the guilt but I can’t deal with being laughed at. I’m desperate, no family, no home. I made my mistake a long time ago. I left & betrayed my home, being sweet-talked by a Greek. With God’s help, I’ll get even. He’ll never see those boys alive again. He’ll never have a child with that girl. She’ll be dead soon. They’ll know I’m good to my friends & bad to my enemies.
  • Chorus: We want to be your friend but we can’t let you do this.
  • Medea: I have to. You don’t know what I’ve been through.
  • Chorus: Nothing good can come from this, only misery.
  • Medea: So be it. No need to talk until after it’s done. Nurse! Bring Jason in here! Don’t give me away. [NURSE GOES INSIDE]
  • Chorus: The people of Athens have been prosperous for a long time. They grew out of a holy ground & have never been conquered. They’ve always been graceful & blessed. They say that Aphrodite makes their winds gentle & sends love to rule alongside knowledge. But how long will such a sacred city protect a child-killer like you? Don’t do it!! How could you summon the will to kill them? You won’t be able to do it when your children beg for their lives. [JASON ENTERS]
  • Jason: You sent for me? What do you want?
  • Medea: Look, I’m sorry for what I said earlier. You know I have a bad temper. We’ve had a long history & I feel like an asshole for trying to ruin things between you & the king. Your new royal marriage will provide a better life for our sons. The gods will help me provide for them in the meantime. You & I came here as exiles & we have few friends as it is. I’m sorry. Your new marriage is for the best. Boys, come out here. [BOYS & TUTOR COME OUT].
    • Boys, greet your father. Forget our fighting & love him as I do. Take his hand [SHE TURNS AWAY TO CRY]. Sorry, I’m thinking of the hardship to come. All the fighting is over.
  • Chorus: I’m crying too. Let’s hope that evil will not win out.
  • Jason: Well, this is nice. I’m glad you’ve changed your attitude. It’s understandable for you to be upset with me remarrying. But it’s wise for you to come around on the matter. You boys should be happy with your father giving you a better life. Your brothers will be running things in Corinth soon enough. I want you to grow strong to defeat my enemies. [MEDEA CRIES AGAIN] What’s wrong? What’s with all the tears?
  • Medea: I’m just thinking about the boys.
  • Jason: I’ll provide for them. Cheer up.
  • Medea: I will. I don’t doubt you. I’m just over-emotional right now.
  • Jason: Why are you crying over the children?
  • Medea: I’m their mother. I’m always worried. But me staying here will only endanger you & Creon. People still think I hold a grudge against you all. I have to go but please convince Creon to let the kids stay.
  • Jason: I don’t know if I can but I’ll try.
  • Medea: Try to get your new wife to help the cause.
  • Jason: OK. I think she can help win him over.
  • Medea: If she’s like other women, she will. I’ll send her a present – a nice dress & coronet for the wedding. She’ll like that. [SHE PRESENTS A BASKET WITH THEM IN IT] Boys, give these to the new bridge. She’ll love them.
  • Jason: Why? Don’t you think a royal has enough fancy things? Keep them. You don’t need to bribe her. I can convince her.
  • Medea: Gifts are always a good idea. It’s her big day & I need to convince her to allow our sons to stay. You try to do your best. Make sure she gets my present. Tell me what happens. [JASON, TUTOR & SONS LEAVE]
  • Chorus: Those kids are doomed. They’re walking off to their own murder. The bride will die because she can’t resist the bling. Jason’s marriage will be over before it even began. & Medea… what a terrible thing to do – to bring about so much death. [TUTOR RETURNS WITH CHILDREN]
  • Tutor: Medea, the boys won’t be banished. The princess liked your gifts. [SILENCE] Isn’t that good news? Why are you so quiet?
  • Medea: [TO HERSELF] How cruel.
  • Tutor: Did you not hear what I said?
  • Medea: Life is cruel.
  • Tutor: Did I say something wrong. This is good news!!
  • Medea. Yes, it is. I was talking about something else.
  • Tutor: Why are you sobbing, then?
  • Medea: I have my reasons. The gods & my behavior brought us here.
  • Tutor: You’re not the only mother who’s had to leave her kids. Take it easy.
  • Medea: Yes, you’re right. Go prepare their lesson. They’ll be in soon. [TUTOR LEAVES] Oh boys, you have a home & a city. You’ll stay here but motherless. I have to go into exile for a very long time. I’ll never see you grow up & get married. I’m miserable & I’ll never stop being that way. All the years spent raising you were for naught. The care, the pain… I had such high hopes for you but I won’t see you until the next life [SHE CRIES. THE BOYS WANDER AWAY. SHE TURNS TO THE CHORUS]
    • Ladies, what am I to do? I can’t do it. I’ll take them with me. Why should I hurt them to make their father suffer? Especially, when it’d be twice as hard for me?
    • But why let my enemies laugh at me? I can’t let them get away with this. What a coward I am! Boys, go inside. [BOYS GO TO THE DOOR BUT WATCH HER].
    • I can’t do it. We’ll live together in Athens & be happy… I can’t let my sons be the victims of my enemies’ rage. Anyway, the matter’s already at work. The coronet’s on her head & the dress is on her. I’ve had a sad road but their road will be even sadder.
    • Boys… All blessings we’ve had have been destroyed by your father. How sweet it is to hold you. Soft & innocent. Go! I can’t look at you any longer. [BOYS GO INSIDE]
    • I know the horror of what I’m about to do but my anger will not subside.
  • Chorus: I’ve often had arguments & got more heated than a woman ought to. Women also have intelligence as a part of their nature. But some of us aren’t capable of reflection.
    • Men & women who’ve never had kids are lucky. They’ll never know if they’re a burden or a blessing. There’s a lot of trouble they don’t have to deal with. Those who have kids are burdened with constant worry. They have to raise them in health & safety, & then make enough for them to live on. They’ll never know if it’s worth it ahead of time.
    • Even if you raise them well, there’s the uncertainty in their lives after they’ve grown up. Why should we add more burden to an already burdensome life? [MESSENGER ENTERS]
  • Medea: I’ve been waiting for word from the palace. Jason’s slave is coming.
  • Messenger: Medea, run! What a terrible thing to do. You have to find a way out of here.
  • Medea: Why?
  • Messenger: The princess is dead & her father, Creon, too!
  • Medea: Good.
  • Messenger: What?!? You’re proud of your crime?
  • Medea: Tell me what happened?
  • Messenger: When the 2 boys & Jason went into the palace, the wedding was about to begin. The princess was approached about leniency for your sons & then was given the dress & coronet. She softened her stance. She put on the robe & the crown.
    • Then she turned white, fell to the chair & started foaming at the mouth. A maid went to get the king, another to get Jason. The coronet caught fire & the dress ate at her flesh. Creon came into the room & threw himself over her but his flesh burned too from lying on top of the dress. Both of them are dead.
    • I have nothing more to say to you, Medea. Happiness just seems impossible. [MESSENGER LEAVES]
  • Chorus: Today, we see the will of heave bring justice & calamity on Jason.
  • Medea: Now I have to kill the boys & run away. They have to die & I have to find the courage to do it. I have to forget my love for them & do it. [MEDEA GOES INSIDE]
  • Chorus: Earth & sun. Stop her before she kills for her vengeance, again! How can you allow this to happen? [CHILDREN SCREAM FROM INSIDE] Oh, that miserable woman. To kill your own children! How could she? Have you heard of Ino? She was made insane by Hera & she drowned her children. The furies will have their work cut out for them with this story. Why does this keep happening? [JASON ENTERS]
  • Jason: You women there. Is that murderess inside? Or has she run off? She’ll have to find the deepest pit in the world to hide in or fly to the moon to escape my vengeance. She’s killed the king & the princess. I’ve come to take my sons before someone else does.
  • Chorus: Jason, you don’t know the half of it.
  • Jason: What? Is she coming for me as well?
  • Chorus: Medea’s killed your sons.
  • Jason: Inside or out here?
  • Chorus: Open the door & see for yourself.
  • Jason: Slaves, open the door. I want to see what happened!! [JASON BANGS ON THE DOOR. MEDEA APPEARS ABOVE THE HOUSE IN A CHARIOT PULLED BY DRAGONS WITH THE 2 DEAD BOYS NEXT TO HER]
  • Medea: Jason, stop banging on the door. If you have a problem with me, say your piece. But you’ll never catch me. I’m protected by the gods.
  • Jason: You terrible woman! You are the most evil thing in the world. You’ve killed your own children, my bride-to-be, her father, left me childless & ruined me. How dare you invoke the gods. I should have left you in Colchis. You’ve betrayed or killed everyone you’ve ever known. No Greek woman would go to such lengths to avenge herself. & purely out of jealousy!
  • Medea: I don’t have to answer to you. Zeus knows what I’ve done for you in the past & how you’ve repaid me. You were wrong to think I’d take your insults lying down. I may be suffering but it’s worth it just to see you suffer for your treachery.
  • Jason: You murdered for being insulted?!? That was nothing a modest woman would do. Just leave me my sons’ bodies for burial & mourning rites.
  • Medea: Oh, hell no! I’ll do it myself at the temple of Hera in Acraea so no enemies can take that away from me. I’ll ordain a feast here in Corinth to wipe the sin clean. I’m going to Athens to live with Aegeus. I hope your death is a pitiful one.
  • Jason: There’ll be a curse on you & justice will catch up to you.
  • Medea: What god will listen to you, an oath-breaker, guest-deceiver & liar?
  • Jason: Zeus, do you hear how horrible this woman is? This day will haunt me forever. I call on the gods to witness that you’ve murdered my children. It would have been best if they’d never been born. [MEDEA’S CHARIOT FLIES OFF]
  • Chorus: Zeus doles out a lot of fates & the gods bring us many surprises.
