FoxKids Spoilers

  • Hercules, Iolaus and Theseus take the word of an old man and hunt an area rich with game, unaware that it is protected by a monster and that the old man is really Hercules' father, Zeus, who is testing his son with the dangerous challenge.
  • Hercules, Iolaus, and Theseus, out on a hunting/fishing/camping trip, find themselves, as darkness falls, in a mysterious valley, which was recommended to them by a crotchety old man. What they don't know is that this is a valley sacred to HERA and home to her Predator - like monster (THE PROTECTOR), who is the valley's guardian. At night, around their campfire, they are attacked. Things look grim until they manage to get to safety in a small cave. There they find the same man who sent them to this valley! Fighting an urge to feed the old guy to the monster, they instead find themselves risking their lives to save the man who sent them into this death trap. They survive the night and make it out of the valley. What Hercules doesn't know is that the old man was his father, Zeus -- who had set up this challenge for a son who had begun to doubt himself.
