  • WOW!!

    Wow, this was the best episode ever! The action was great! It was nice to see Gannicus again. I really missed him in the first episodes. The Spartacus-Gannicus meeting was well played. So was the meeting between Gannicus and Oenomaus.

    The CGI of the crowd could have been a lot better though.

    But still :D GREAT EPISODE!
  • AMAZING!!!

    The best scene when the Great Gannacus replies to the Great Spartacus remark of brotherhood. Both of them do not know how great the other is.. The two most amazing warriors there, and how the story unfolds, its almost like the Pinnacle of greatness of all the episodes!.. THE BEST EPISODE EVER!!!!!!!

  • Ridiculous!

    9.5
    Best episode to date! I only docked down .5 points because of the terrible CGI when the crowd fell into the fire in the arena but nice script and acting compared to the slower previous episodes. This one episode could have been made into a movie...it was THAT good!
  • Another great episode

    I really like how this series is almost one solid episode, just broke up into little bits (each episode). I like how it immediately picks up where the previous episode left off, like the previous reviewer said. The show is getting better with each episode. I think my favorite actor is Lucy Lawless. She is one manipulating son-of-a-gun. She has come a long way since Xena.

    • Agron: I am in your debt. Spartacus told me what you have done for Nasir. If it were not for you...
      Naevia: It's because of me that he lays near death.

    • Nasir: Where do we go?
      Agron: Nasir! (Walks over to him, very pleased with his recovery, and cups his face tenderly)
      Nasir: Give me a sword. I will join you.
      Spartacus: I would have you rest yet a while longer.
      Agron: This time you stay… and I go.
      (Nasir nods and smiles. Agron kisses him and Nasir smiles timidly)
