The Whole Thing
Hades kidnapped Persephone and took her to the underworld because of her beauty. Persephone's mother, Demeter, went looking for her daughter. When she found out where Persephone was Demeter went to ask Helios if she was right. She was right so she made the earth cold and barren because of the kidnapping. Zeus begged her to stop but she didn't. As a result Zeus sent Hermes to the underworld to get Persephone. Hades gave Persephone 4 pomegranate seeds as a "snack" before she left. Zeus had warned that if she anything she would have to go back to the underworld. Since she ate 4 pomegranate seeds Zeus compromised so she only has to go to the underworld 4 months every year.
When Persephone was asked what she was thinking when she ate the seeds, she said that she just thought Hades was being nice and was giving her a snack on the way out.
Hades was asked how he felt about Persephone not sharing the love he felt for her. He responded "No comment."
Demeter was asked, "Why did you make the earth cold and barren?" She said that she didn't care about the earth, she just wanted her daughter back.
