A pre-Spartacus prequel about life in the House of Batiatus. In the opener, a younger Batiatus is placed in command of his father's gladiator-training school, which leads him to use one of the most accomplished fighters to curry favor with a nobleman.- Written by Anonymous
In the years before his rise to fame as the owner of gladiators, Batiatus struggled to make a name for himself. With his father away in the country living in semi-retirement, Batiatus is in charge and sees his champion Gannicus as the way to do it. A new arena is being built in Capua and at this stage, it's not even certain he will have one of his fighters on display. He has a keen eye however and overpays for a slave, a Gaul named Crixus. He has to face the local crime lord Tullius and learns that he isn't yet in his league. Lucretia meanwhile welcomes the return to Capua of Gaia, an old friend. Gaia is something of a wild child who liked to party, have lots of sex and takes opium. Lucretia seems ready to go along.- Written by garykmcd
