This recap of Netflix anime series Blood of Zeus season 1, episode 3, “The Raid” contains significant spoilers.

We recapped every episode — check out the archive.


The opening

Episode 3 starts with Apollo ready to fight Ares in a colosseum. Suddenly, Ares is zapped by lightning from the sky. Zeus confronts Ares and asks if he told Hera about Heron. Hera appears and tells Zeus she knew everything anyway — this was like an “Oh, snap” kind of moment. Afterwards, Hera asks Zeus if he ever loved her, but he also admits to loving Electra as well. Hera vows to kill Electra and Heron.

If only Zeus just lied this one time…

Stopping the three-headed wolf

As for Heron, he’s fighting off the three-headed werewolf with Alexia. They manage to kill one of the heads. Suddenly, they are surrounded by demons. Alexia wants to evacuate Polis. As Alexia leaves, Heron is trying to find his mother Electra. Leader of the demons, Seraphim, attacks Heron with a majestic spear and Zeus tells him to run as he has the elevated position; he keeps giving his son instructions to evade the demon.

A town in panic

Heron runs back to Polis and he’s still looking for his mother. As the villagers try to flee, they are cornered by Seraphim. He asks the villagers for the whereabouts of Alexia. The demons pick up Alexia’s scent so they kill the leader of Polis.

Episode 3 gives the audience the impression that Seraphim is ruthless – he will do anything to reach his objectives, so it is worth keeping that in mind.

We don’t want bloodshed

Hera and Zeus continue to argue. She seems to have the other Gods on her side. Zeus’s brother takes Hera’s side as he does not want bloodshed.

The ending

Seraphim approaches Electra and asks for the whereabouts of Alexia. Electra looks up in the sky, expecting Zeus to help her but nothing comes. Heron arrives to help his mother but then he is punched clean by Seraphim. The pair end up in a fistfight, but Heron keeps on losing — Seraphim tells Heron that his eyes are full of hate. Seraphim then kills Heron’s mother, and Heron screams in pain. Zeus feels Electra’s death and Hera has a smile on her face.

Hera tells Zeus that he was wrong about Heron because he has his mother’s blood.

Blood of Zeus season 1, episode 3 ups the stakes for the first time, giving the audience its first significant moment as Heron begins to realize where he stands in all this.
