Zeus snaps Teucer's bowstring
You are ZEUS, now fully in control. You snap Teucer's bowstring to stop him killing Hector prematurely. He is doomed, but it is not Teucer who is fated to kill him. Hector is sweeping through the Greeks like a flesh-eating lion, and you are happy, because, at last, Thetis can see you are keeping your extravagant promise to her. But Ajax is still ferociously keeping the firebrands away from the ships.
