- Vyasa finishes his comforting storytelling, and then vanishes, leaving it up to Yuddistira to deal with breaking the news to Arjun that his son is dead. Arjun comes home expecting a party, only to find the camp in mourning over the loss of his son. He responds by swearing to kill Jayadratha by sunset tomorrow.
The Kauravas find out about his oath and hastily make plans to keep the prince safe long enough for Arjun's vow to fail. That is all it will take to get the Pandava out of the war!
Now Arjun is a bit worried, but still he's got Krishna to help out. Even though the oath was sworn without Krishna's advice, he arranges a meeting with Shiva. Shiva provides a magic missile that should take care of everything. Arjun still has a long row to hoe-- we'll see how it works out tomorrow!
