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.
