After building himself a raft and navigating through various familiar trials, Cyclops, sirens, lotus eaters, isle of Calypso, trip to the Western Edge of the World he finally arrives to discover Penelope is already there and giving him a hard time. She'd nipped in the new theatre and cinema entrance ages ago and has just sent their son off to find his dad.
