The Gorgon's Gaze is the ninth episode of the second series of BBC's Atlantis and the twenty-second episode of the overall series. It is written by Julian Jones and directed by Lawrence Gough.


Ariadne is tortured by Pasiphae in an attempt to get her to voluntarily release her right for the throne, and declare Pasiphae as the true queen and ruler of the throne, as the gods have refuse to recognize her as Atlantis' rightful ruler. With the help of Daedalus and his son Icarus, Pythagoras sneaks into the town and convinces Melas to help their cause by stealing Pandora's box. Medusa revives her original curse, and Jason enters Atlantis with her severed head to confront Pasiphae and save Ariadne. However, his plan goes awry once Pasiphae reveals the relationship that the two of them share.
