Percy Jackson And The Olympians Season 1 Episode 1 Recap
Percy Jackson Season 1 Episode 1 begins with the introduction of Percy Jackson, emphasizing the dangers of being a half-blood. We witness Percy's school struggles due to the strange occurrences around him, leading to multiple expulsions. During a trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art with Yancy Academy, Percy defends himself and his friend Grover from bullies, inadvertently discovering his unusual abilities.
As Percy awaits punishment from Mrs. Dodds, she transforms into a Fury, a winged monster, demanding something from Percy. Gifted with a magical pen by Mr. Brunner, Percy witnesses it transform into a sword, using it to defeat Mrs. Dodds. However, the concerning denial of her existence by Mr. Brunner and Grover raises red flags, hinting at a deeper mystery surrounding Percy's world.
Back at school, Percy tries to convince everyone that he didn't push Nancy into the fountain, but Grover says Percy planned to get back at her. Percy gets kicked out of Yancy Academy. Before leaving, Mr. Brunner hints that Percy is special and has a tough journey ahead. Percy isn't thrilled about it. He heads to his mom's place on East 104th Street in Manhattan, where he finds Gabe Ugliano, his mom's not-so-great husband. Percy's mom greets him warmly, gives him some blue candy (his favorite), and asks about what happened. Percy, feeling scared, spills the beans. Sally, being an awesome mom, takes Percy to Montauk to get away from the apartment.
Percy dozes off in the car and has a creepy vision warning him to run away. At Montauk, Sally spills the beans that Percy is special, and this vacation spot is where she met his dad. However, Percy is clueless about his dad.
Out of the blue, Grover pops up with alarming news – they need to rush to Camp Half-Blood ASAP. Grover's got goat legs, which weirds out Percy. Turns out, his BFF is a satyr, news to Percy.  A Minotaur, a huge monster offed by Theseus, is after them.
In the car chat to Camp Half-Blood, Grover spills about "the Mist," hiding the monster and God world from regular folks. He tries to explain Camp Half-Blood, but it's too much. The Minotaur is on their tail! It shoves their car off the road into a swamp. Now, they have to hoof it to camp. Sally, a human, can't join. She makes Grover swear to protect Percy and goes to distract the Minotaur. Unfortunately, it snatches her up, and she disintegrates like Mrs. Dodds.
Percy, in total rage, goes at the Minotaur and takes it down, but it wipes him out. He blacks out, and when he comes to, there are people around, including a centaur who sounds just like Mr. Brunner. He says, "Welcome to camp, Percy Jackson. We've been expecting you."
