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 KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


By the end of this season, Spartacus and the rebels find themselves trapped atop Mt. Vesuvius; as Glaber's men guard all routes leading away. But they manage to land a surprise attack on the Roman army by climbing down the mountain by ropes made of vines. This feat was not an idea from the series' writers, but an accurate retelling of the actual battle at Vesuvius. Shaping the vines into ropes was a cunning ruse of the true Spartacus which led to the defeat of the first of many Roman Generals to be sent to hunt him; Claudius Glaber. See more »

Boy does McKnight know how to end a series...
23 June 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

If you wish you can criticize this series. Perhaps you were put off by the casting changes. Perhaps you felt some episodes dragged. Perhaps there was too much girltalk.

Perhaps perhaps perhaps.

But what you cannot do is call the finale anything less than perfect. McKnight and his team have a gift for wrapping up a series as we saw in the original.

Thrill after thrill after thrill.

And just when you think it cannot get any better, Lucy Lawless suddenly puts on her Jason Voorhees look from Friday the 13th and for few minutes you are watching a horror film inside of a sword and sandal epic.
