SAMIRA WILEY & LINDSEY MORGAN AS HADES & PERSEPHONE

THE RUNAWAY MARRIAGE

HADES, LORD OF THE DEAD, FELL IN LOVE WITH PERSEPHONE, THE GODDESS OF SPRINGTIME, BUT HER MOTHER DEMETER WOULD NOT ALLOW THEM TO MARRY. THE COUPLE ELOPED TOGETHER TO THE UNDERWORLD, AND PERSEPHONE ATE THE SEEDS OF A POMEGRANATE TO BIND HERSELF TO THE LAND OF THE DEAD. THOUGH PERSEPHONE SPENDS THE SUMMERS ON EARTH, IN WINTER THE COUPLE RULE THE LAND OF THE DEAD TOGETHER, EQUALS AND STILL VERY MUCH IN LOVE.
