CLXXIV: First He Made Us Feel For Agamemnon, and Now Menelaus is Sexy?! Euripides’ Helen (Part 3)

Euripides is really here making us all fall for Menelaus and I don't know how to deal with it. Menelaus and Helen are reunited and plan their escape from Egypt.

CW/TW: far too many Greek myths involve assault. Given it's fiction, and typically involves gods and/or monsters, I'm not as deferential as I would be were I referencing the real thing.
