Alexios was not meant to stay a mere mercenary in the middle of nowhere for long. First, he needs to deal with the Cyclops and his thugs, but then he is meant to face his past and create his own destiny, which will eventually shape the destiny of the entire Greek world.
Alexios will meet the creepy Elpenor of Kirrha in this episode, and Elpenor will give Alexios a task that will put aside the mercenary and have Alexios become the man he was born to be.
