Hour 3: Geddes Levenson
There is this Greek myth, I don't remember the exact details, but I think this ship is off to fight in the Trojan war.  But someone on the ship does something offensive to the Gods, and the ship gets caught in a horrible storm just off shore, and won't move and everyone is starving. Finally the ship's oracle tells the captain, you angered the gods, the boat won't move until you sacrifice your daughter and throw her overboard.
