LET ME POINT OUT OF THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS SCENE:
Here, Captain America - a hero in this film - is standing still while three other kinds of heroes, rush around to do thier job. (this is in no way bashing Cap, he is simply standing still at this moment, most likely in shock/fatigue). A soldier, a BLACK COP and two firemen. While American’s super soldier is immobilized, our every day heroes are still fighting to ensure safety and peace. The fact that Marvel created this moment in thier film, a film focused on the heroes, speaks yet again to thier message that you don’t have to be a super, to be super.

To be honest, at the beginning of The Lost Hero, I didn’t really like Jason Grace. As the series progressed, I became more and more doubtful about him. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a Jason hater or anything. It was just that he felt ‘too perfect’ for me. And I know now that he isn’t but to be fair, in the books even Annabeth and Hazel were unsure about him at the beginning. However, in the House of Hades, my appreciation for his character went really up.
I think that Jason Grace is what you call a true leader. We know that while he was at Camp Jupiter he was in the fifth cohort and he rose from there to be the praetor. Why would he choose to be in the weakest cohort if he didn’t plan restore his former glory?
Even through the House of Hades, we saw so many times when his leadership skills truly shone. In my opinion, a good leader is one that sees the struggles that each team member is facing and works with them to overcome it. Jason did that with Nico. He understood his situation and he offered his help to Nico to help him deal with his issues. Also, a good leader is one who understands the full potential of their team members and are willing to give up their positions when they see someone is better suited for the job. In the end of the House of Hades, Jason sacrifices his position as praetor to Frank because he knows that he isn’t worthy of the position anymore as he is having second thoughts about where he truly belongs. To be honest, that scene made me love and respect Jason Grace’s character the most.
I feel like Jason has come a very long way. He is an interesting character and even though he is often used as a comparison to Percy, he is his own individual person and should be loved and respected for that.
I sincerely hope that in the Blood of Olympus we see more of Jason’s leadership skills and him trying to accept the fact that even though he was born Roman, he can choose to lead a life whichever way he wants too. I really hope that in the end, Jason is happy with whatever decision he makes for himself and accepts the path he wants to walk on.
