Review James Hunt Feb 3, 2013
This week's Spartacus presents the lead's moral ambiguity and prepares the ground for future episodes. Here's James' review...
This review contains spoilers.
3.2 Wolves at the Gate
After a strong opener, this episode was a little more by-the-numbers. At least as far as Spartacus goes. That still meant it was densely-plotted, with strong characterisation and fantastic action, but in the words of Peggy Lee – is that all there is?
Don't get me wrong, there was a lot to like, but much of this episode seemed to be heading towards the flatly inevitable conclusion. Did we ever think Spartacus and his rebels wouldn't take the town of Sinuessa? When he promises something in one episode, we know by now that it'll happen in the next, and that made this plot thread pretty much drama-free, leaving the court of Crassus to pick up the slack in that department.
