Whilst Tiberius in exile derives some comfort from hearing of the mysterious death of Gaius, Antonia confesses to Julia her disappointment in Claudius. She chastises his siblings Germannicus and Livilla for shunning him but still feels that he is stupid. However everybody is amazed when an eagle drops a wolf cub into Claudius's arms and an augur reader interprets this as meaning that in the future Claudius will save Rome in its hour of need. Livia continues her campaign against Julia by proving that she is a serial adulteress, leading to her banishment, a fact which upsets Augustus, who actually loved her. With the news that Lucius has also perished, drowned in a boating accident, Augustus recalls Tiberius from his exile to be his co-heir with his grandson Postumus. Written by

What's the matter?
Cheer up, young Agrippa. Caesar had adopted you into his family and made you his heir! That is an honour!
Yes, Herod - but he had also adopted my stepfather and we all know that both of us cannot succeed him. I'm frightened! I want my mother, I want my mother! Where is she? Where is she?
