The stage is set... !!, 12 February 2011
Author: Rufus John from India

With the fourth episode coming to a bloody conclusion,the stage is all set for the penultimate episode and this season's finale ! 'Beneath the mask' was one of those episodes,where the viewer can relatively guess about the subsequent events of that episode,and yet,still be surprised when the event actually takes place.

The house of Batiatus and its promise of exotic pleasures lures suitors from far and wide to partake of the various offerings and lest Titus be offended,his son whisks him away to farther shores.This proves to be a costly error in judgment as certain events take place which will change forever the manner of the dealings taking place between the higher echelons of the power struggle which Batiatus is faced with.The rage of emotions during the episode also involves the delicate appearing Mellita and Gannicus,the result of which is sure to ignite a few flammable minds in the coming episodes.

Ashur and his friend have proved to be the comic elements this season and we get to see more of this during 'Beneath the Mask'.Special mention to the orgiastic,bacchanalian scene.The sex and debauchery is proving to be the highlight this season rather than the blood and sands of the arena & I for one hope that the final two episodes will do justice to the expectation for some good gladiatorial action in the sands !

My score: 7/10
