Storyline

The price of Caesar's mercy: Cicero nominates Caesar to an unprecedented ten-year dictatorship and Brutus speaks in support of the motion. With martial authority and Niobe at his side, Vorenus campaigns for magistrate under Posca's advice, but is shocked to learn from Posca that Caesar has already fixed the election in Vorenus's favor. Meanwhile, Atia continues her humiliation of Servilia while denying any involvement in her assault. But Atia becomes troubled by the silent depression of Octavia after Octavian compels her to return home from the cloister where she had fled. As Servilia lies at home shattered by her recent attack, she soon revives and gets her self-confidence back when she takes in the homeless and embittered Quintus Pompey whom she sees as her tool for revenge against Caeser for leaving her. As Caesar prepares for his Triumph involving five days of celebration and games, Antony finds that the dictator has no sense of humor about the trappings of power. The circulation ...

Caesar is formally recognised as absolute ruler and things get worse for Pullo
28 February 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After the war Caesar is formally given absolute power to rule Rome for ten years; inevitably not everybody is pleased. When Quintus Pompey turns up at Servilia's house she welcomes him in; an enemy of Caesar's is a friend of hers. Her son Brutus is not pleased; especially when an anti-Caesar pamphlet starts circulating which claims to have been written by Brutus. Elsewhere things are going from bad to worse for Titus Pullo; first he isn't allowed to march with his legion at Caesar's Triumph as he is now a civilian, then he frees Eirene thinking that she will now marry him, not realising that she is in love with one of Vorenus… this leads to events that could permanently end his friendship with Vorenus.

This was another episode with plenty of scheming and pointed gestures; it was interesting to see Atia paying a visit to her 'friend' Servilia to see how she was after the recent assault despite the fact that everybody knew she was behind it… Polly Walker does a fine job as the duplicitous Atia. These scenes made it even more enjoyable when Servilia allows Pompey's son to stay in her house to continue plotting against Caesar. The highlight of the episode was seeing the previously jolly Pullo descending further into despair; where this will all end remains to be seen. Ray Stevenson excels as Pullo showing a greater range than earlier episodes. Caesar's Triumph was impressive given the budget restraints of a television series; it was interesting to see that Vercingetorix, the 'King of the Gauls' was still alive… at least for the first part of the episode.
