Storyline

Cicero is finally undone by his duplicity in the form of Titus Pullo, acting upon Octavian's request to assassinate all supporters of Brutus in Rome. Pullo and Vorenus enjoy a happy if counterfeit outing with their families in the countryside to hide their assassin mission. Vorena the Elder's dangerous dalliance with one of Mimeo's men continues, and the torrid affair between Octavia and Agrippa escalates. Atia's casual cruelty to ask for the assassination of people she doesn't like results in complete disaster for Octavia's friend Jocasta. Elsewhere, the headstrong Levi engages Timon in a plan to assassinate King Herod by recruiting in the synagogue where they worship. Disastrously out manned, Brutus and Cassius engage the combined legions of Mark Antony and Octavian, and confront their fates in the ferocious battle at Philippi.

[Octavian, who is scratching away at his writing tablet, doesn't answer]
Mark Antony: Do you understand what I'm saying, or shall I speak more slowly?
Gaius Octavian: [irritated] No. Making use of strategic surprise is obvious.
[he places the tablet in front of Antony]
Gaius Octavian: To that end, there is a ...

Marcus Tullius Cicero's death!!
9 August 2018 | by elo-equipamentosSee all my reviews

Rome series has a peculiar bonus,all this were made under the real facts over those bloody days when Julius Caesar broken down the republic and becomes by Army's power the first emperor,then at Rome's senate had several a strong body of senators.Marcus Tullius Cicero were one them,well known as philosopher one greatest leadership of his time and skilled and able to handling so many political powers,but after the first triumvirate who ruled after Caesar's death his head was claimed by Marcus Antonius his deadly enemy,this episode told as it happened, one the best of the second season certainly,but your name was not forget at all, until today his name is remembered as the best brains ever had in Roman Empire!!

Resume: First watch: 2018 / How Many: 1 / Source: Blu-ray / Rating: 8.5
