In Episode 5, according to Creon, why is he MOST hesitant to take Tiresias' advice to release Antigone and bury Polynices?
Creon does not want to give in to blackmail.
Creon believes Antigone would make a horrible wife for his son Haemon and will do anything to keep them apart.
If Creon releases Antigone, Thebes will give her the throne as soon as she marries Haemon.
It will hurt Creon's pride if he has to admit he was wrong.
Creon will appear weak and ineffectual if he goes back on his words and laws.
