Part Three: The Map of Everything
In which Dante is led to the basement of a very old adobe building in downtown Marfa where his friend Iris shows him a map of — literally — everything. He is able to track the powers of not only Zeus, but all the gods, goddesses, and monsters across several epochs — ancient India, China, Babylonia, and Egypt — and Dante sees how everything seems to be pointing to him and his friends.
