Storyline

Agron's group allowed Spartacus to escape. They find refuge in an abandoned temple with its resident, embittered Roman citizen Lucius Caelius, who hates the republic since Sulla killed his loved ones. Hearing Varinius is to preside over major games in Capua, to culminate in the pseudo-execution of Crixus and two other captives, Spartacus is determined to free them and take revenge on Glaber. Meanwhile, senator Albinius agrees to let Ilithyia divorce and remarry Varinius. Lucretia helps her to an abortion potion, but Glaber finds out. Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

When Gannicus and Oenomaeus square off at the execution, each man manages to disarm the other of a sword. Gannicus ends the fight by kneeing Oenomaeus in the face and stands over him ready to strike with his remaining sword. However when the camera shot pans out to capture both men, Gannicus is again holding two swords without having retrieved his second. See more »

1 May 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Not only the best in this sub-series to date but one of the most enthralling TV productions I have ever seen.

In my reviews I am careful not to heap praise where not deserved, but also careful to acknowledge excellence.

The original series, Blood and Sand, was not merely good, it was a milestone. Writing and acting fought one against the other for supremacy like the gladiators of the arena. True Purpose was simply to entertain.

The second season was handicapped because of unfortunate circumstances involving the star, but that "flashback" saga was more than competent.

The first four episodes of this series have been on the weak side. Lacking traction. But that slight is remedied fully by this episode, which holds the eye from beginning to end.

Wow.
