Episode Summary

The final episode of Stalker Chronicles is in the style of Greek Tragedy. Greek Tragedy depicts the downfall of a noble hero or heroine, usually through some combination of hubris, fate, and the will of the gods. The tragic hero's powerful wish to achieve some goal inevitably encounters limits, usually those of human frailty (flaws in reason, hubris, society), the gods (through oracles, prophets, fate), or nature. Aristotle says that the tragic hero should have a flaw and/or make some mistake (hamartia). The hero need not die at the end, but he / she must undergo a change in fortune. In addition, the tragic hero may achieve some revelation or recognition (anagnorisis--"knowing again" or "knowing back" or "knowing throughout" ) about human fate, destiny, and the will of the gods. Aristotle quite nicely terms this sort of recognition "a change from ignorance to awareness of a bond of love or hate." A Greek chorus danced as well as sang. (The Greek word choros means "a dance in a ring.") All actors were male and wore masks. This is our spin on Greek Tragedy. Director: Brigitte Erickson Original Score by: Cam Jones Cinematographer: Daniel Erickson Direct quotes/paraphrases from Greek plays: "What misery to be wise when wisdom profits nothing." - Oedipus the King “Stop, my children, weep no more. Here where the dark forces store up kindness both for living and the dead, there is no room for grieving here" - Oedipus the King “Fear? What should a man fear? It’s all chance, chance rules our lives. Not a man on earth can see a day ahead, groping through the dark. Better to live at random, best we can." - Oedipus the Kingmoreless
