Persephone starts her internship with the Underworld Corp, and is struggling with her scholarship with the Goddesses of Eternal Maidenhood. Eros gets her to open up about what's happened, and she breaks down. He brings her to his home, full of Venus' other children, and Venus figures out everything as well - what Apollo did, and that she has a crush on Hades. Persephone swears them to secrecy. Meanwhile, Hades is still trying not to have a crush on Persephone and work things out with Minthe, but Persephone being near him is enough for his resolve to crumble. They tour the Underworld together for several as part of her orientation, not realizing the passage of time. Then, Hecate gifts Hades with something personal - a letter between her and Persephone that tells of the actual first meeting between Hades and Kore, which Hades has no memory of at all.
Persephone is still reeling from the fallout of her assault from Apollo, as well as the night-after the big Olympus party where she ended up in Hades' house. A tabloid publishes a photo of the two of them leaving and accuses her of being a flower nymph sleeping her way to the top. Hera decides to meddle further and approves an internship for Persephone in the Underworld, meaning she'll be working closely with Hades. Minthe, Hades' sometimes paramour, grows jealous from the photo. On Persephone's first day in the Underworld, Minthe gives her terrible directions and lands her in Tartarus with some volatile shades. As soon as Hades realizes Persephone's in trouble, he sprints off to rescue her just as she's being attacked by a shade. Hades can't come to terms with his feelings for Persephone, and worries about his attraction to a goddess who is much younger than he is, so he decides to bottle it up and try to work things out with Minthe.
Here is another retelling of the classic Hades and Persephone myth, this time set in a little bit more of a modern world. Hades tries to get his somewhat girlfriend, a nymph named Mynthe, to join him at yet another of Zeus’ parties, but she instead leaves him hanging. Hades shows up stag and gets grief from his two brothers, Poseidon and Zeus. Persephone, who is young and just moved to the shining City of Olympus, is styled by her roommate, Artemis, and dragged to her first God party. While there, Hades spies the beautiful Persephone from across the room and compliments her in front of the jealous Goddess of Beauty. Aphrodite calls in her son, Eros, to help her play a prank on Persephone and Hades. Later, Eros apologizes for his role in “punishing” Persephone, and he reveals how much power his mother has over him.
