The final scene of the play where Medea and Jason verbally fight struck me as very relatable to the divorce of a pair of modern-day parents. Except that the mother murders the children, new wife, and new father-in-law. Medea begins the argument by saying that Jason can’t touch her at this point because she’s in the sky. This is similar to how a divorcee can protect himself/herself so that he/she doesn’t get screwed over by the other lawyer. Jason then tells her about how much he had done for her and how she betrayed him, although it is ironic and doesn’t make much sense. Meanwhile, he warms it up by spewing a few insults at Medea. Medea then joins the blame game by saying that Jason had betrayed her first when she gave up everything for him. They then exchange more of their own sides of the story in this manner, and in the end, they even fight over custody of the children (although Medea killed them), each saying that he/she would have a better place for them to stay. Medea finishes by saying that she absolutely will not give up the sons and that Jason had never loved them to begin with. Jason then tries to play the victim to the gods, even though Medea and the gods all know what really happened.
