Storyline

In the series final, following his his crushing naval defeat at Actium by Agrippa's forces, Mark Antony realizes that this spells the end for him and Cleopatra. With a hardened Octavian refusing to be bullied, shamed or negotiated from his terms of taking them into custody, which will lead to public humiliation and ultimately death, there is but one choice left. Following the capture of Alexandra signaling the fall of Egypt and end of the war, Antony chooses the only honorable fate for a former Roman, and turns to his steadfast second and friend, Lucius Vorenus, for assistance. A final, desperate, duplicitous act affects Antony's demise, as Cleopatra hopes to buy time for herself and the lives of her twin children by Anthony. One face-to-face meeting with Octavian proves how fruitless her efforts of seduction are, and Cleopatra joins her lover in death by suicide. Above Octavian's suspicion, Titus Pullo and Lucius Vorenus whisk Cleopatria's eldest son, Caesarion, away from Egypt, but ... Written by Christopher Chase (cchase@onebox.com)

Goofs

Caesarion was 17 years-old when Octavian seized control of Alexandria. Prior to Octavian's invasion, Caesarion was sent by Cleopatra out of Egypt to escape. However, Caesarion's guardians brought Caesarion back to Alexandria (possibly by promises made by Octavian) where Octavian had Caesarion murdered and uttered the infamous line, "Two Caesars is one too many." Caesarion never left Egypt alive. Strong evidence also suggests that Caesarion was, indeed, the son of Julius Caesar. See more »

Atia of the Julii: [to Livia] You are swearing now that some day... some day you will destroy me... Remember, far better women than you have sworn to do the same. Go and look for them now.

Things I Will Miss About ROME
29 July 2011 | by (Troy, NY) – See all my reviews

I doubt anyone will read this, as it's the end of the series, but just for fun I'm going to do a High School Yearbook style farewell to ROME. Vote HELPFUL if you will miss these things about HBO's greatest show.

Things I will miss about ROME . . .

Titus Pullo and Lucius Vorenus . . . best friends forever!!!!

Pullo's instant altar to Mars on the field of battle.

Vorenus wondering exactly how Titus Pullo knows so much about his wife's genital region.

Atia of the Julii . . . channeling Scarlett in GONE WITH THE WIND . . . channeling Erica Kane on ALL MY CHILDREN . . . channeling Rhoda Henry on THE WINDS OF WAR . . . channeling every myth ever made about dangerous, powerful, hungry, irresistible women of a certain age!

Julius Caesar pimp-slapping Servilia . . . just to let her know that it's over.

Servilia breaking out the Ouija boards and the voodoo dolls, vowing to get even . . . but in a fun way.

Octavia of the Julii . . . the Wet Blanket, the Pouting Princess, cute as a button even when she's stoned out of her mind!

Watching Timon the Jew kill his brother accidentally on purpose . . . "so now I'm a schmedrick? Or am I really a schlemiel?"

Watching the newsreader at the Forum wrap up every story with that cool, funky, ZZ Top style hand wave.

The bearded king from the eastern provinces asking Brutus the tough questions about his "hero of Rome" status. (He was already dead? Helpless? And you stabbed him again? In Rome this makes you a hero?)

Young Octavian in the sewers . . . watch how he quickly morphs from Anthony Michael Hall in THE BREAKFAST CLUB to Michael Madsen in RESERVOIR DOGS. Not your average geek!

Watching Mark Antony put on his NFL style running back moves to get past the low-rent hoodlums clustering outside the Senate. Go OJ!!!

Lucius Vorenus . . . father of the year.

Watching Vorenus' daughter give him the evil eye at the dinner table.

Watching Vorenus explain to the collegia what he does to Concord.

Octavia's best friend Jocasta. Being a "bad influence" was never this much fun!

Titus Pullo offering the gods a cockroach.

"Thirteen! Thirteen! Thirteen!"

Agrippa watching Octavia play the harp with stars in his eyes, knowing she's out of reach. The Great Gatsby lives!

Mark Antony ordering Vorenus to get his act together.

Erastes Fulmen analyzing Vorenus' anger in a thoughtful way.

Servilia taking time out from being a crazed and vindictive old bag to seduce gentle, vulnerable young Octavia.

Cleopatra's son Caesarion vowing to get even with Octavian . . . and the way the series ends with important news about his father.

Gentle, timid Octavia not quite hiding a smile as her mother Atia puts Livia back in her place.
