Episode Summary

Lost In The Labyrinth
Ulysses meets up with Aegeus, whose son Theseus has disappeared. The Oracle tells him that only Ulysses can find his son. Theseus has been captured by the King Minos of Crete, who will not allow him to marry his daughter Ariadne. As punishment, Minos has Theseus thrown into the Labyrinth. Ariadne vows to follow Theseus into the Labyrinth, and so Minos sends his forces to prevent her from doing so. Ulysses explains to the children that has been told by Aegeus that when he finds Theseus he will find the route back to Earth. As he does so, Ariadne's ship, chased by four others passes by the Odyssey. Yumi senses that Ariadne is in danger and they take the ship on board. She tells them that she is trying to save Theseus, and they tell her they are looking for him too as they believe that he knows the way back to Earth. She tells them that he is in the Labyrinth and at the mercy of the Minotaur, a creature dwelling inside it. Arriving at the Labyrinth space complex, Ulysses, Yumi and Ariadne enter, monitored by Telemachus in the Odyssey. Ariadne uses a set of tracer pearls to make sure that they don't get lost inside. However, once deep inside, all the walls of the Labyrinth reconfigure themselves, changing the shape of the maze, causing Ulysses and the others to truly be lost. As Minos' forces enter the Labyrinth to retrieve Ariadne, Telemachus decides to follow them. Meanwhile, Ulysses' group finds Theseus, but soon come under attack by the Minotaur. As Telemachus evades Minos' guards, Theseus is able to stab the creature with his sword. He asks Theseus how to get back to Earth, but he has no idea. It is then that Ulysses realizes that it was the Minotaur himself who knew the way back, and he has killed him. With the death of the Minotaur, the Labyrinth rearranges itself again, and Telemachus is reunited with his father.moreless
