Storyline

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

Trivia

The beginning of the episode mirrors a moment in episode one of "Blood & Sand." In both instances, Spartacus stands alone at the edge of a cliff looking down on Glaber's men comfortably encamped with food and shelter while to his back, his people stand cold and hungry. See more »

Brutal
10 April 2012 | by Ryan BayneSee all my reviews

Only this series could get away with endless bloody action from start to finish while still sustaining the core principles of why it is all happening. In a cheap movie this would be seen as just a cheap attempt to grab attention whatever the plot. In Spartacus: Blood and Sand: Wrath of the Gods it is deserving as many key characters are slain for reasons known to anyone who has viewed season 2. We are treated to the ending of many more key characters than most series would offer with twists that surprise even if all alone we suspected as much.

Thumbs up. The director must show the cunning and strategic mind of Spartacus throughout Season 3 but I think we should also see the new addition of a split story line, based on current slaves to be released later, so that the viewer can be strongly reminded of the freedom being fought for.
