Storyline

Furius and Cossinius can't capture the rebel slaves army, nor properly keep their plans secret. Realizing hiding will be much harder in winter, Spartacus decides to capture a town. First he and a trusted band sneak up to the commanders' hideout villa to slay them. The senate fears Rome itself may be endangered but lacks funds and men to mount a suitably large army. So Metellus turns to immensely rich, ambitious Marcus Crassus, who accepts, to eager son Tiberius's frustration without even negotiating an accordingly exalted status or mandate, and continuous private sparring with a dearly paid gladiator, whom he ends up killing in a fair duel. Spartacus's victory unwittingly plays into Crassus's hand, as he now formally 'inherits' sole command. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

When the Roman Soldiers attack Naevia, Spartacus and the others come to her aid. During the battle she decapitates a Roman's head in one sweep; a subtle nod to both one of her earliest conversations with Crixus and her defeat of Ashur in which she cloved his head in 3 sweeps. See more »

Goofs

Although Roman Legionaries of this period carried a spear (more accurately a javelin) called a pilum, it was a throwing weapon not a stabbing one. Legionaries trained well with them and could throw them hard and accurately enough to pierce an opponent's shield (or an opponent if without a shield) A frontal assault by a single rider would, in reality, only end one way.

tired of slow motion fighting and constant whoooaaaa grooaaaa
21 April 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

i loved the past seasons.. it was very upsetting that we lost the first actor, but producers did a good job introducing the new one, and it wasn't hard to adapt back to the show with the new spartacus.

i was impatiently waiting for the new season.. and it came with quite a bit of disappointment.

the story line lost its perfection with the last season. and just like many other good shows, as new seasons came up, they simply "screwed up" .

in almost every fighting scene, we see characters with full open mouth screaming their guts out in slow motion.. really.. tiring.. the success of a flick is not to repeat the same thing over and over again. i honestly don't understand why producers cant see that, and stuff us up with whatever we statistically liked here and there in the shows or movies until we throw up.

i loved spartacus s1 and s2 for many reasons, it was fun, exciting, a lot of interesting and original characters were involved.

last season.. i watched it for the sake of the older ones. bearably good, but disappointing compared to previous seasons.
