Kin is the eleventh episode of the second series of BBC's Atlantis and the twenty-fourth episode of the overall series. It is written by Julian Jones and directed by Justin Molotnikov.


It is revealed by Cassandra, the new Oracle, that the gods oppose the execution of Jason, and Pasiphae is relieved by this news after being reluctant to kill him herself. Instead, he is put into the arena to fight for his life. Mingling with the lepers that bore away the dead of the fights within the arena, Aeson takes the chance to talk to Jason and reveal himself as his father. The two of them escape to rejoin Hercules, Pythagoras and Ariadne, and Jason's darker side is balanced by the love of his father, making it all the harder for Jason when Aeson is mortally wounded and eventually dies in his arms.
