kings 1.13 : the new king [pt. ii]
“What wouldn’t I give for a playboy who couldn’t keep it in his pants and who runs through women; but what I have is a son who shows no interest in them. Oh, you thought I didn’t know? I’ve been keeping pictures of our family out of the free press for years… what you do at night with your boys after your show of skirt-chasing is a disgrace. If you were my second son, I wouldn’t care, but for a king it’s not possible… We give up what we want when we want power; believe me. Now, you want to show me you have the heart to be king, show me you can control it. Wrestle it to the ground. Numb it with ice. But you cannot be what God made you, not if you mean to take my place… Celebrate, Jack, it’s what you’re good at.”

GREEK MYTHOLOGY | Sebastian Stan as Hades & Lea Seydoux as Persephone
Hades was the ancient Greek god of the underworld. One day, he abducted Persephone, the daughter of Zeus and the harvest goddess Demeter, while she was picking flowers in the fields of Nysa. Demeter was so distraught that she cast a curse on the land, causing a great famine. Eventually, with the gods’ intervention, Persephone was allowed to return to her mother and the land turned back to normal. However, Persephone would spend one-third of the year with Hades. It is during this time that winter casts on the earth “an aspect of sadness and mourning.”
Remember who you are.
