Episode 5 of "Percy Jackson and the Olympians," aptly titled "A God Buys Us Cheeseburgers," takes a slight detour from the frantic monster-busting of previous episodes to focus on character development and world-building. While this shift in pace may not please every viewer, it serves as a crucial stepping stone for the season's arc and offers some delightful moments.


  • Ares steals the show: Kudos to the casting team for capturing the blustery, mischievous spirit of Ares. His presence injects humor and tension into the episode, and his interactions with Percy and Grover are particularly entertaining. The line, "Give me a second, I'm just starting a fight on Twitter here. Nothing makes me happier than a good old fashioned 'burn it down!' fight," perfectly encapsulates his chaotic personality.
  • Character exploration: The episode delves deeper into the relationships between Percy, Annabeth, and Grover. We see Percy struggling with his newfound fame and the suspicion surrounding him, Annabeth's unwavering support and resourcefulness shine, and Grover's loyalty and concern for his friends. These moments strengthen the emotional core of the story and make us care even more about their journey.
  • Mythological expansion: The episode introduces the Golden Fleece and its connection to Ares, adding another layer of Greek mythology to the tapestry of the show. This expansion keeps viewers engaged and eager to learn more about the world Percy inhabits.
