Huh. I really liked this one. Nestor and the gang walk through an enchanted gorge named the Path of Sorrows, which emits a haze that forces all who enter it to relive unhappy memories. As a result, and unlike the ep about the mind-reading walls, the Path of Sorrows actually revealed interesting things about the characters. Looks like all of them have done deeds in their past that they deeply regret. Nestor's sad memory was my fave, because it showed that, even when he gets unfairly and brutally picked on, he has a forgiving heart. In fact, his "sin" (getting even with a cruel bully) was by far the least damning, compared to Gatling's (who subjected a princess to a very unwelcome rescue, and incidentally, the "Shrek" reference was pretty cool), Anna (who's apparently been a magical screw-up all her life) and Graer (who let someone else take a brutal punishment that he himself deserved). Quest's memory had to do with his banishment and brought to light a new villian who's far more interesting than the foppish Lord Spite. It also reveals the origin of General Ogun. And the ending, when everyone snaps out of it, had a rather nice moment when Quest picks up a sleeping Nestor and cradles him like he did when the prince was a baby.
I have to say that this episode is very encouraging. If the rest of the series has as much thoughtfulness as this one, then it may be too late (for this viewer anyway) to write it off. I rate "The Fall of Oddysia" 8/10. (I knocked 2 points off because GRAER STILL ISN'T FUNNY!)
