    starting this show I had low expectations, I knew that Andy Whitfield had tragically died after this season and the more I watched the show the more I liked him. it is truly sad that we never got to see Andy Whitfield fulfill his full potential.

  • Revenge is a dish best served cold -- and everyone got their 'slice'.

    Every storyline introduced throughout the season has come to a crashing finale. Very few shows have finales as memorable as Spartacus B&S. A show that first started out as unoriginal and generic, has finally shaped itself into one incredible series.



    Spartacus is starting to rally all of his fellow gladiators in helping him overthrow the house of Batiatus. However, there are still a select few who are still reluctant, including Crixus. Spartacus and Crixus have to set aside their differences in order to break their bondage from their masters. Meanwhile, Batiatus and Lucretia invite many people of honor to their house and to gain favor for their transition towards working in government. All of these events come together into a powder keg ready to blow.



    Every single episode of Spartacus keeps getting better than the previous one. With a season finale this good it will make it hard for fans to wait for the second season. It will be hard to imagine how the writers plan to top this first season.moreless
  • Enough with the raping of the ratings! One of the best finales television has ever seen!

    So we all know, for about a week and half after the episode aired, it remained at a constant 9.9 rating, but then someone or some people decided that they weren't going to let that happen. So what we see here is NOT a legitimate score of the episode. The episode was spectacular. The show started off disappointing, but each and every episode got better and better to the point where I couldn't believe what I was watching. The storyline was so well created and the finale drove everything into one massive bloody ending. This is my second favorite finale of all time (sorry but I'm a Lostie) and it deserves a rating so much higher than what it has. You can even look at every review on this website and there are only two that are below a 10 and they're a 9.5 and an 8.5. I would heavily recommend this show to anyone who loves good and treacherous story telling, blood, sex, and violence. A well crafted story that gives you the most satisfying of endings.

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Spartacus: You move well. As if lash had never struck.
      Crixus
      : Pain is erased when inflicted upon others.
      Spartacus
      : I would have you at your best when we face each other.
      Crixus
      : Is that all you'd have for me? Rhaskos speaks of your desires. What fever grips brain, that Spartacus would think me to band with him? To risk the lives of my men, my life.
      Spartacus
      : Is there one, without the woman you love within it?
      Crixus: I've never had stronger reason to live.
      Spartacus
      : I know your heart, Crixus. I felt the beating of it within my chest once.
      Crixus
      : Then you know I'll fucking survive, and see Naevia returned to me.
      Spartacus: As my wife was returned. Batiatus ordered her death.
      Crixus
      : How did you come upon this?
      Spartacus
      : The tongue of his man Aulus before silencing it forever. I will see the house of Batiatus fall, and with it the villains' blood upon the earth.
      Crixus
      : As would I in your position, but I am far removed. My escape would not aid Naevia. How would I purchase her freedom, or even find her while being hunted like a dog by the Romans?
      Spartacus
      : Join me, and we will find her together.
      Crixus: You know that in another life, you and I may have been as brothers. But not in this one. I must win my freedom in the arena.
      Spartacus
      : Then we stand in the way of each other's cause.
      Crixus
      : And both are just, but if I fall I'd have you swear to find Naevia, see her freed. Spartacus: And I would have word that if you are victorious, one day you will have Batiatus' life (They hold in an armshake) Tomorrow then, one of us dies.
      Crixus: I fear it was always fated so.

    • Spartacus: What would you do, to hold your wife again? To feel the warmth of her skin, the taste of her lips? How many men would you kill? A hundred? A thousand? There stands but one between you and her.

    • Batiatus: You were nothing before me! I gave you everything! I gave you the means to accept your fate!
      Spartacus: Now you are destroyed by it (Spartacus kills Batiatus).

    • Spartacus: I have done this thing because it is just! Blood demands blood! We have lived and lost at the whims of our masters for too long! I would not have it so. I would not see the passing of a brother, for the purpose of sport. I would not see another heart ripped from chest, or breath forfeit for no cause! I know not all of you wished this, yet it is done. It is done. Your lives are your own. Forge your own path, or join with us, and together… we shall see Rome tremble!
