Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Hercules (Kevin Sorbo) and Iolaus (Michael Hurst) vow to rescue young Melina (Mandy Gilette) from the Cave of Echoes, from which no one has ever returned. Our heroes are assisted by a writer named Parentheses (Owen Black), who must first overcome his cowardice before venturing into the forbidding cave. Parentheses' redemption is helped along by Zeus -- not Hercules' immortal father, but a cute little kitten of the same name. When originally telecast, this episode brought the second season of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys to a close.
