Intense fiendish story, Lucy Lawless raging performance, intriguing Spartacus behavior, interesting new character but disappointing ending and conventional editing
22 March 2010 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Since Delicate Things I have learned to consider the episode titles as wicked. So I was expecting either a romantic story or filthy chain of events. In fact it was both black and white so relationships like the one between Crixus and her slavefriend developed further. However the Mark of the Brotherhood intense ending could only lead to fiendish activities. I worried that Batiatus and Lucretia wouldn't react accordingly but they continued to viciously battle against Ilithyia and their other enemies. Otherwise even if Lucy Lawless performance was definitely the enlightenment of Whore I was very disappointed by the ending. Of course it was surprising but I found the staging awkward and inappropriate. I think the editor could also have done something creative but instead scenes were filmed one after an other without the surreal daydreams and visual effects we have been used to.

Beside these few cons there were still numerous elements to count on. First I really enjoyed Spartacus new behavior and I'm convinced that he'll be rewarded. I'm sure it's only a facade to gain Batiatus trust. But Lucretia is less naive than her husband so I can't wait to see how they will deal with each other. Second I also appreciated the arc involving their new female slave. I really hope she'll be a recurring character because she could be a beautiful and intriguing addition to the existing cast. But she actually reminded me of how much I miss Sura because after her flashback appearances in Great and Unfortunate Things I thought she would become a spooky ludus resident. Spartacus thinks about her all the time so why didn't they decide to show us his dreams and nightmares ? I'm not asking them to turn the show into a Legend of the Overfiend spin-off but I think Erin Cummings proved her talent in the pilot so she deserved better.

So in the end my opinion is mixed even if I still found the episode entertaining and intriguing. Lucretia's mask game was intense but I was hoping for a more subtle and puzzling approach. However I'm convinced the writers are skilled enough to deliver us with great and disturbing upcoming episodes so I can't wait for the season to end. Into a blood bath or dripping quicksand ?
