Last week, Hera hid that she was pregnant. This week, we learn who the father isn’t, and see the births of two more important figures from Greek mythology. Also, if you’re going for the whole totalitarian dictator thing, make sure you don’t take your wine naps right next to all the people that hate you. Just saying.

The creature this week is the pipe fox. A fun little fox friend who will learn all your friends’ secrets and also rob you and everyone in your life.
