Batiatus mourns the death of his father and blames Tullius for all that has befallen them. Gannicus pushes Batiatus to complete his sale to Tullius so that he may seek revenge for the House of Batiatus but Solonius counsels caution and a more sensible, if final, solution. Solonius protects his own position as well, however. Naevia replaces Melitta and Lucretia promises that no man will ever touch her as happened to Diona,who makes an unexpected return. The new arena is complete and the games begin. The gladiators of the House of Batiatus emerge triumphant with Crixus and Gannicus wanting to face each other in the primus. Written by garykmcd

One of the best episodes
26 February 2011 | by See all my reviews

I've watched both,"Spartacus:Blood and Sand" and "Spartacus:Gods of the Arena" but i must say,that "The Bitter End" episode is the best episode this serial has had until now.Even better than the last episode of "Spartacus:Blood and Sand".Batiatus plays outstanding(this guy is bounded to win a Oscar) and Gannicus,well Gannicus,is Gannicus.

All i can say,is that, those were one of the best 62 minutes of my movie life. This episode has everything,drama,tension,love,thug fights,friendship and last but not least....the glory of the roman society.

Eagerly waiting for season 3.
