Caption: Later tonight on UNDERcover GOD
Caption: Poseidon God of the seas and oceans will be pretending to be Ambros, a hopeful contestant on a reality TV show where he could win Kingship of his own city state.
Caption: Coming up!
Caption: At Thermopylae Poseidon tries his hand at fighting in phalanx formation
Leonidas {Oliver}: I don't think Ambros makes a very good Spartan warrior. He insists on using a trident rather than a dory. I think he might be better suited to fighting alongside the Athenians on their ships.
Caption: Later At Troy
Poseidon {Ambrose}: I don't think I've ever been so angry. I was so close to pulling my wig of and revealing who I really was.
Poseidon {Ambrose}: I mean, just who does this Odysseus think he is? I know he's on the opposing side, but that's no excuse for such discourtesy.
Poseidon {Ambrose}: Seriously, A horse! I am beside myself right now. I think I may have a surprise or two to spring on this Odysseus before he gets back to his wife.
Caption: Then later, on an island near Thrace, Poseidon commiserates with on of his brother's messengers.
Iris {Meridien}: And you see, all my sisters were born with wings, so I always felt a little left out.
Caption: And problems arise for Poseidon when he visits the Oracle at Delphi.
Servant of the Oracle {Samantha}: Hey, I know you from somewhere.
