With this weeks repeat of the series thus far I've begun to find new meaning in each episode.
After re-watching Episode 1 Gannicus made a remark to Spartacus that caught my attention. After their conversation about Gannicus' past with Oenomaus and his wife, Gannicus remarks that he will f*** women and drink whine in Spartacus' name and that he will take up sword to fight at the steps of the Roman Senate. I think it would be absolutely wonderful to see Spartacus and his men at war in the streets of Rome itself. I know that it is farfetched, if not ridiculous, but the idea is wonderful to dream of.
Another note: Gannicus says that he stands equal with swords to Spartacus, now take that with a grain of salt because it was he who said so, but it is interesting to note that they stand equal. It lends to the importance that Spartacus puts towards Gannicus' becoming a leader.
