1.12 "Clash of the Tritons"

Aired Jan 11, 2005


...and the myths do tell of the mighty Triton, whose acolytes, with twisted tongues and silent trials, renew themselves each year with the best of men. And of the seeker Veronica, whose ill-fate it is to be blamed for the sins of others, but whom the gods have endowed with a quick wit to make her smarter than the lamb, and the truth is told. And of the gentle Rebecca who hears true from the men who worshipped the goddess Lilly, be they brother or lover. And all the world hears true when Aaron, the popular hero of the people, is exposed as a satyr by his betrayed mate, who ends her suffering by plunging to her death at Coronado...
