Storyline

Capturing Roman scouts, Spartacus realizes that the feared general Pompey is back in Italy, while survivors report the massacre of Crixus and most of his army. Ynwilling to let his glory by stolen, Crassus only agrees to confer with Pompey by envoy. Tiberius eagerly accepts Caesar's suggested to represent his father, but at arrival is captured as Spartacus used to looted uniforms to impersonate Pompey's delegation. Tiberius and his escort are captured and destined as sacrificial victims in improvised gladiator games in honor of the rebels countless losses. Realizing Crassus won't return to ruthless military reasons while his heir is captured, Caesar accepts to negotiate his exchange for 500 slave prisoners, including Argon, who thus survives crucifixion. Spartacus leaves the dilemma to Crixus's bloodthirsty widow, but Kore proves even more vindictive. Written by KGF Vissers
