Storyline

Rebels bands, whose leaders each pretend to be Spartacus, striking all over the region confuse the Romans. One of two columns with mainly women and children thus escapes, the other is captured and bloodily made into examples, crucified along the Via Appia. Once Crassus realizes the truth about Tiberius, Kore suffers the same fate. Spartacus cunningly prepared the battle field he chose to oppose Crassus's legions in a desperate last battle, with Gannicus in commanded of a mounted reserve to pincer the Roman infantry. Nevertheless, the last true gladiators fall one by one, so Crassus and Caesar triumph, only to be forced politically to allow Pompey, who actually arrived to late, to take the main credit, so as to forge the triumvirate which will take over Rome.

Trivia

Both Crixus and Spartacus were killed by Spears from behind just before they would have killed a Roman commander; Caesar and Crassus. Each of the four men made their marks on History. The rebellion posed a threat to Rome itself which can be said of no other uprising from within the Republic; some believe it to have been so much so, that it indirectly led to the formation of the Roman Empire under Caesar. (Who's patron was none other than Crassus.) See more »

Goofs

Just before Caesar kills Naevia, she raises her sword in one last attempt to strike. When she raises the sword, there is blood on the blade but none on the handle nor the hilt. Seconds later, when she swings and Caesar catches her wrist the hilt and handled are covered in blood. See more »

Quotes

Spartacus: Soon Crassus will give command! And we shall face his legions in open battle! We stand in the shadow of greater might! As their Republic cast across the lives of every man, every woman, and every child condemned to the darkness of slavery! Forced to toil and suffer, so that those of coin and position can see their fortunes grow beyond need or purpose! Let us teach them, that all who draw breath are of equal worth! And that those that seek to place heel upon the throat of liberty will fall to ...

Truly epic finale
13 April 2013 | by seppwasnedSee all my reviews

For any TV show they promise epic finales all the time and usually there is more going on than in the average show. Yet usually the end is underwhelming or just good. This one however truly is amazing. The costumes, makeup with all the gore and battle just made me write my first review. If there ever was a finale of a TV show one must not miss, it is this one. This last episode beats the Game of Thrones production a few times over with its own battle on the Blackwater. For a TV show what the crew pulled of with this last one is very impressive. Only 100 Million Dollar movies may beat it with more detailed special effects but they don't have the amount of close combat with blood and sweat to no end.

Game of Thrones and Spartacus crew should team up. The former could use a little more and better battles.
