Sophocles is also writing for House, MD; this was a storyline in the last season, except that the lovers were nextdoor neighbors who married without realizing that *his* father had also fathered *her* during an affair. It does speak to the arctypalness of the myth, though, that it persists,right? I think the brother-sister marriage is an old urban legend.

btw, Sophocles is now on strike from House, MD.
