Like in many modern-day depictions, the Underworld is depicted as a hellish place full of fire. However, in Greek mythology, all the dead went to the Underworld, their treatment differing on their behavior on earth. So while there was a place where the sinners were tortured, the Tartaros, the Underworld also had the Elysium, which was more or less a paradise for the good souls, the Mourning Fields for people who died while yearning for unrequited love and the Asphodel Meadows for everyone else. Also, the Tartaros was not simply a place of fire, since this is a depiction of hell which only became popular over the last few centuries.
Halfway through the credits there is a scene showing Gabe Ugliano's fate on discovering Medusa's severed head.
