Say what now? Wait, I thought Cronus promised the titans freedom and then betrayed them? Wasn't Zeus supposed to go down to Tartarus to Ask the Titans to rise up against Cronus in exchange for Freedom? Why would he want them to be loyal to the evil king?

No, you're wrong. Uranus locked up first the Hekatonkheires and the Cyclops into the depths of Tartarus, until Zeus rescued both them. Later, Zeus confined the Titans and Titanesses in Tartarus after defeat Cronus, until he chose release them as act of mercy.

In the Greek Mythology, the Titans and Titanesses only chose ally Cronus when he defeated and dismembered Uranus; neither of them dared challenge his father before because they had fear to him. Maybe they did the same thing bacuase believed Cronus will amend the mistakes of his father; never imagined other prophecy will triggers other war between deities, of Cronus turn crazy and paranioc as now.

Awesome! The eyes are amazing - but I think this is where adorable, cute little Zeus starts making his transition into the King.

@ Sidus But Cronus is the BAD GUY! He's the one Zeus has to defeat to resue Metis, Nike and Selena's sister. Cronus is the one who controlled Hades and captured Athena, Posiden, Demeter, etc. Zeus Promised Gaia he would Free the titans and Defeat Cronus, so why would he ask the Titans to claim loyalty to Cronus???

@ Naomi-daos

In the Greek Mythology, the deities were not good nor evils entireley. The Greek Civilations conceved them in this way because they believed they acted as the human been do; the Titans and the Titanesses were not the exception:

Before Cronus ruled the world, Uranus terrorized all deities and their sons and daughters because he feared be dethroned by one of them, acoording to a prophecy. He tried none Titan or Titaness born of Gaia to preventing the fufilling this prophecy. Angry by the behaviour of her husbsnd, Gaia conspired to release herself and their sons and daughters of Uranus' restraint, and forjed a big sikle for fulfilling this objective. Neither of Titans and Titanesses agreed help her, but his youngest son Cronus. He chose take revenge his mother and his sisters and brother becaubirth to the word: Finnally, Cronus dismemered Uranus, and from his blood born other deities as the Erinyes, the Gigantes, the Nymphs Meliae, and from the Uranus' genitals in the sea came forth Aphrodite too.

I recommend you to read Hesiod' "Theogony". The epic poem will help to understand many situations of "A Promise", especially the Titanomachy -the war between Zeus and Cronus-.
