Glaber is confident that Spartacus' band can be starved on Mount Vesuvius after a daring attempt to break out fails. After Lucretia attempts to discredit Ashur, Glaber decides instead of an execution to sent him as envoy to ask Spartacus's extradition in exchange for his men's lives, but they refuse and Naevia insists to kill her rapist-pimp in an unfair duel. Ilythia delivers her son early, but Lucretia is madly jealous enough to turn that into fatal tragedy. Spartacus finds a way around so he and three mates can climb down with vines to surprise Glaber and turn the ballista on the Romans, who scatter after the praetor is killed. Written by

But they manage to escape and starting a surprise attack on the Roman army by climbing down the mountain by ropes made of vines. That was no idea of the creators of the series. It was actually a cunning ruse of the true Spartacus to defeat Roman forces under their leader Claudius Glaber. See more
