    I enjoyed this episode. Ashur continues to be a busta. not a lot of action, but lots of things happened, but it also kinda felt like nothing happened? Lucy Lawless is great at being a crazy bitch. this is also the episode where I questioned if this show was soft-core porn, by the end I came to the conclusion that if all porn was like this show, people would still buy porn.moreless
  • Lucy Lawless is Flawless! My all time favorite episode of Spartacus and perhaps favorite of all Lucy's works!

    I really loved this episode because it was filled with so many awesome scenes, dialogues and superb acting! Lucy Lawless is a master of her craft, of her character and knows how to make it all come together! I will write more later, but seriously this was the best!
  • another great episode

    Waw this episode was really good, new poeple and crexix is back, the fight scans are great it is keeping getting better, i dont know how people dont know this show yet, in this episode Lucy plays a game, a good one. i also noticed that Batiatus is the one who ordered to finish Surah life. i Really hate Ashour and really waiting for the time he dies. Saprtcus sleeeps with the Ilithia waaaw and she gets creazy it was funny when she killed the other girl. really nice episode. i will be wiating for the coming episodes hope spartucus the actor gets well soonmoreless

    This episode definitely had some flashes of brilliance, but lately it appears that it is regressing a bit. There just seems to be a bit too much craziness (fighting and sex) and it came to a boiling point tonight when there was a ridiculously huge brawl and a woman smashing another's face to death.



    Look I like fighting as much as the next guy, and I value sex probably more than just about anybody, but I also want a little bit more substance from my shows than this is offering. I can't even name half the characters on this show. Can you?moreless
  • A lot of sex and an intense ending

    8.0
    Well, it seems that Spartacus has decided to do an episode completely dedicated to sex, infidelity and.. well, more sex. There was a lot of it going around, and a lot of backstabbing and conniving going around as well. I wasn't sure how I felt about this episode at first, but if anything, it showed how conniving Lucretia can be. It seems that Batiatus and her are truly meant for each other.



    I felt bad that Spartacus was duped into copulating with the wife of his sworn enemy, but I'm surprised that Spartacus would agree to do it so quickly. Just an episode or two ago, there was a flashback informing us that he would never love another woman, but he's so quick to forget Sura and jump into bed with another woman.



    Regardless of all that, I love the twist they did at the end.. it heightens the tension between Spartacus and Ilithyia and brings a huge twist to the episode. It was a little ridiculous.. but the show always seems to thrive on excess, so I was entertained by this episode.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Goof: While having sex with Spartacus, regardless of the mask he is wearing, Ilithyia should have been able to notice that it wasn't Crixus because of the missing scars on his chest, the eye colour and the different complexion of the body.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Duro: Two weeks and the mark's still raw as a whore's cunt!
      Agron: I bear the same mark brother, without pissing about it!

    • Mira: Domina fears that you've been too long without a woman. That you will be unable to withhold your seed long enough to please the Roman woman.
      Spartacus: The notion offends me. As does your presence.

    • Ashur: And who shall face Ashur? Choose carefully, for I long for blood.
