Goofs

Xena must have been a truly remarkable person for not only was she present at the Trojan war, as we have seen in a past episode, but she also had the honor of knowing Julius Caesar. Considering that the Trojan war is historically placed at about 1194 BC-1184 BC and the aforementioned historical figure from about 100 BC - 30 BC for Xena to have survived over 1000 years is utterly amazing! Talk about your well kept woman! See more »

Caesar's Palace war not harmed during the production of this motion picture. However, Crassus and the gladiators went down for the count. See more »

The ending was so good, it portrays the morality and overall tragedy in life
13 March 2013 | by (Planet Namek) – See all my reviews

By far my favorite episode in the third season. The character of Crassus was extremely well-played as an overall role in this episode. Crassus is captured by Xena and Gabrielle, who must save this guy named Vercinix. They do so, but must switch Crassus with Vercinix, who happens to be in Rome's jail cell. Caesar has promised a beheading and when Crassus is brought forth rather than Vercinix, he is confused, but must sacrifice his loyalty to Crassus because the crowd of the coliseum wants blood. Crassus screams for his life as he is beheaded. So basically, Gabrielle walks away as she plays a part in Crassus' murder. The overall terror and savage execution make this one a masterpiece episode. The character of Crassus stood out not only as a brilliant plot device but also as a great villain with an excellent death scene.
