  • Great Ending to a Great Prequel!

    ** Some Spoiler Alert ** Wow, this is one of those episodes that you just have to say 'wow' to. Batiatus is back to his 'old' tricks of punishing everyone that dared stand in his way. His punishment for Tullius was both cruel and appropriate. Everything about this episode ties up loose end perfectly. While there aren't many surprises in the plot (it IS a PREQUEL afterall) there are a few things that still touches the heart. Diona's reappearance for one. And oh God, I hate that friend of Quintilius (that annoying looking egg head). That aside, the final fight of the episode was simply spectacular and the result of the fight was even more gorgeous. This episode also sees Crixius becoming more presentable (like how we see him in Spartacus Blood and Sand). I am not going to give more details about the ending because I will just give it all away. I did really enjoy the show, chapter 6 wrapped things up very nicely.
