An epic battle between Spartacus and his gladiator brothers, against Batiatus and his Guards.
Did You Know?
When Spartacus attempts a second thrust at Batiatus' head, it is impeded by Doctore who catches Spartacus' arm with his whip. Crixus then comes to Spartcus' aid and cuts the whip. This act by Crixus was somewhat symbolic of what the revolt ultimately did to Doctore. The whip stood for Doctore's authority; it was how he maintained order. Crixus cutting it, stood for the Gladiator revolt- in destroying the House of Batiatus, they not only made Oenomaeus' position as Doctore useless, but they ruined his life's work. Oenomaeus was a devout servant of his master and his purpose was destroyed by his own brothers. This led to his own self-inflicted shame and self-destructive lifestyle in the Pits.

When the gladiators are brought out to be viewed by the guests of Battiatus in the finale, the gladiator Indus, who was killed off in the 2nd episode of the prequel, GOTA, is shown standing next to Spartacus. See more
I have done this thing because it is just. Blood demands blood. We have lived and lost, at the whims of our masters for too long. I would not have it so. I would not see the passing of a brother, for the purpose of sport. I would not see another heart ripped from chest, or breath forfeit for no cause. I know not all of you wish this, yet it is done. It is done... Your lives are your own. Forge your own path, or join with us. And together, we shall see Rome tremble!
