At the end of the first season of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, the prophecy of the Oracle of Delphi comes true, giving twists and emotions to fans.
Discover below how each phrase of the Oracle comes to life in the plot, revealing disloyal deities, traitors, and extraordinary events.
Get ready to dive into the mythological world of Percy Jackson and discover how the prophecy unfolds.
The first sentence of the Oracle – “You will go to the West and face the god who has become disloyal”
During the season, Percy is summoned by the Oracle to carry out an important mission.
According to the first sentence of the Oracle, he will have to go to the West and face the god who has become disloyal.
Over the course of the episodes it becomes increasingly clear that Ares is the traitor god, who plays a crucial role in the plot.
The second sentence of the Oracle – “You will find what was stolen and see it returned safe and sound”
The Oracle’s second sentence reveals that Percy will find what was stolen and see it returned safely.
Initially it seemed that the Oracle was referring to Master Dart, however, we discovered that the prophecy also referred to the Helm of Hades, which had been stolen by Ares.
Percy had promised Hades to find the Helmet in exchange for his mother’s freedom.
In the plot’s thrilling climax, Percy defeats Ares and returns the Helmet. As a result, the protagonist returns the magical items to their owners.
The Third Phrase of the Oracle – “You will be betrayed by those who call you a friend”
The Oracle’s third sentence brings with it a shocking revelation: Percy will be betrayed by someone who claims to be his friend.
Over the course of the episodes, the suspicion arises that Luke Castellan, one of Percy’s companions, is hiding dark secrets.
At the end of the season, Luke is revealed to be the traitor, the true thief of Master Bolt, as well as his hatred of the gods and his goal to bring the titan Cronos back to life.
Luke initially does not want to fight Percy because he considers him a friend, unfortunately the protagonist does not agree to join the son of Hermes and his army of demigods. Which ends in a fight.
The Fourth Phrase of the Oracle – “And in the end you will fail to save what matters most”
The Oracle’s fourth sentence brings a sad note to the end of the season. Percy is warned that even after facing so many challenges, he will not be able to save what matters most to him.
At first Percy had no desire to help Poseidon or stop the war of the gods, only accepting the mission to rescue his mother from the underworld.
Unfortunately, in Percy’s first encounter with Hades, he is unable to save his mother, Sally Jackson, thus fulfilling the prophecy.
But Sally never needed Percy’s help to save herself. In the end, she makes a deal with Hades, which allows her to return safely to the world of the living.
