Plot question and possible minor Act 1 spoiler below:
Is it implied that Eurydice sleeps with Hades at the end of Act 1? I always assumed that they go into his office to sign on the dotted line but nothing more. That Persephone is jealous that Hades is giving another woman his attention - not that Eurydice and Hades had been intimate. But after really listening to the first verse of Flowers, I'm thinking maybe Eurydice is singing about being forced to sleep with Hades.
Any thoughts on this interpretation?

I don't know how to do spoiler tag, but I didn't get that at all. I don't think they ...
I feel like there was a long thread about this at one point with many people on both sides. I still don't know what I think.
initially i didn't get that from the recording, but after seeing the show it definitely seems that they did, at least as far as Persephone is concerned. (doe does this hilarious bump and grind movement in the act 2 opener)or maybe Persephone only assumes they did.....
I didn't think so at all til my mom and I talked about it. What sold me was persephone outside the room doing air quotes. Im completely 50/50.
Yeah they did, but like... she didn't come, because that 'girl means nothing to him'.
When i first saw the show (having never listened to the album before) I automatically assumed they slept together and then was suprised afterwards that others didn't get that at all. For me it was Hades loosening his tie before stepping through the door after Eurydice. Like why else would he do that?
If they did, it makes it A LOT harder for me to forgive Hades during the Act II dance with Persephone.

He absolutely did.When Hades is on the steps walking up to the office, he UNBUTTONS his suit and says "step into my office, there are papers to be signed."And in Act 2, the fates sing "and Hades laid his hand on you, and gave you everlasting life (while they all put their hands up and down Eurydice's body)."
