Episode Info

Final: 1x04 -- Daedalus & Icarus (Dec/22/1991)


Daedalus was a skillful architect, inventor, and master craftsman. Daedalus lived with his son Icarus. Daedalus was embarrassed and frustrated by his clumsy son and took on Talos, his nephew, as an apprentice. Talos displayed a skill and intellect that rivaled Daedalus's. Daedalus upset that Talos was everything his son was not and fearing that the boy would surpass his talent, murdered the boy by tossing him from the roof.

Daedalus, and his son, fled to the island of Crete, where he found himself in the court of King Minos. There he constructed the Labyrinth to contain the monstrous Minotaur. Minos cast Daedalus and Icarus into the Labyrinth.
