Picking up exactly where Season One left off on the Ides of March, 44 BC, Caesar has been assassinated, stabbed to death, and his bloody corpse lays in the senate. The rapidly spreading news shocks the city. Even consul Marc Antony must run to the safety of Atia's house where he swears to take bloody revenge on Caesar's murderers, but for the time flees with Caesar's family to the north. But Octavian keeps a cooler head then his mother. Calpurnia insists on the private reading of Caesar's will, which names Gaius Octavian as his adopted son and full heir and makes a gift to each citizen while freeing Posca (the slave who reads it out) with a stipend, but they must fear a rightful tyrannicide will be declared allowing full confiscation. Octavian points out legally declaring Caesar a tyrant would also invalidate all his deeds, including mandates held from him, so Brutus' followers have an interest in a full pardon instead.

Trivia

When Servilia (Lindsay Duncan) agrees with the other conspirators to go into talks with the Julii, Brutus (Tobias Menzies) indignantly answers "You too, mother?" This is a direct reference to Julius Caesar's famous last line "You too, Brutus?", which, according to some historians and William Shakespeare, was spoken when he saw Brutus among his killers. This may also have been what Caesar wanted to say in the previous episode "Kalends of February" (Brutus mentioned Caesar tried to speak), but wasn't able to. See more »

Favorite show ever...
14 January 2007 | by (cincinnati OH) – See all my reviews

I love Rome-the richness of the characters, the layers of the scenery and the depth of emotion that these virtually unknown actors are able top pull off is brilliant. I am shocked that for years no one has made palatable shows about Rome--particularly during the Roman timespan that the HBO series captures. HBO is great b/c it reveals Rome to us in all its visceral feeling and truth--none of the camp and debased crap produced by American television companies which whinnies about terrorism all day w/ 70 year old actors who are devoid of any depth at all. All should watch Rome, it is by far, one of the best shows you will ever watch.
