From the air

she walked, taking the form of a tall woman, handsome and clever at her craft, and stood beyond the gate in plain sight of Odysseus, unseen, though, by Telemachus, unguessed, 5 for not to everyone will gods appear. Odysseus noticed her; so did the dogs, who cowered whimpering away from her. She only nodded, signing to him with her brows, a sign he recognized. Crossing the yard, 10 he passed out through the gate in the stockade to face the goddess. There she said to him: “Son of Laertes and gods of old, Odysseus, master of land ways and sea ways, dissemble to your son no longer now. 15 The time has come: tell him how you together will bring doom on the suitors in the town. I shall not be far distant then, for I myself desire battle.”
According to this passage, what message will Odysseus deliver to Telemachus?
They will fight the suitors together.
Odysseus is done with fighting.
Odysseus is withered from his long journey.
Athena will challenge the suitors.
