Love this show, gonna miss Andy and John Hannah though.

Did the first episode leak early or something? I thought it didn't start until Friday.

EDIT: Apparently the first episode is streaming on the Starz website. Loved the episode, Liam did a great job at taking over where Andy left off and Lucy Lawless was amazing as always.

So, there's this thing that's been bothering me:


Now that the Capua arena crumbled, will they find the body of that guy that was buried between its walls at the end of Gods of the Arena?
I think the force of the bleaches falling could cause the walls to fall too, and reveal that guy (who was a bitch).

Oh yeah and that episode was epic. Too bad I can never remember the names of the guys that die, and I'm like "Oh no, Mer...no, Ver...no,....that guy died!"

The last few episodes have been amazing, especially the scenes in Capua. Glaber has become so much more awesome now that he's taken control by

SPOILERS

first killing Albinius, then having Ashur's men lay waste to Seppius' home and killing him.
He's still no Batiatus, but he's finally become a compelling villain. Speaking of Ashur, the actor who portrays him is fantastic. There are very few "bad guys" who have made me yearn for their death as much as Ashur.

Knowing the historical importance of Gannicus and Oenemaeus in the rebellion, it will be interesting to see how they manage to reconcile over the coming weeks.

Isn't there another guy? Castus or something that's in the rebellion as well?


Anyways, I'd bet 100 denari that the season finale will be at the top of Mount Vesuvius and Spartacus killing Glaber and all that shit.
Don't know what they could do after that though.


Also, I don't know about you, but I really want Ashur to succeed

Okay, so apparently the "plan" is to kill Illithia to make Glaber "pay" using the same coin, right?


But Glaber just enslaved Spartacus' wife, he didn't kill her. So wouldn't the "fair" option (if we take the "eye for an eye" approach) be to just enslave Illithia to work for them or something?

I mean, not only is killing her just like totally wrong, even for Spartacus, but it's not even the "fair" retribution that would be expected if one was to take "vengeance".

I find it odd why they killed Verinius last episode.

Didn't Verinius live longer in real life? Why would they kill him now? So we don't instantly assume that other characters will get to live (Crixus/Onomaeius/Gannicus/etc who all die later) and it takes away the tension or something?

That was nearly as awesome as Kill Them All, just a fantastic episode all around.
season finale spoiler


I can't believe everyone involved in the birthing scene died (yes, Ilythia is dead according to an interview with Stephen DeKnight). All the schemers, gone, I wonder how they're going to keep things interesting in Rome next season. Plus, I'm really going to miss Ashur. He was one of the best villains on television in a long time.

Omg Mira!
This shit will be so intense!

So, it's the finale and Ashur has to fight against someone to save his life.
Isn't this familiar? (hint, he will mostly use dirty tactics to slither away and will live)


Wait, why is Naevia so angry towards Ashur?
I don't remember him doing anything to her


NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Ashur was so cool
I wanted him to take revenge on Glaber or something, he was the Batiatus v2
Why do they always kill the cool characters in the season finale
Imagine if Batiatus and Ashur were alive at this point?
They would have been Consul of Rome by now.

**** yeah Lucretia is a badass!
It was obvious she wasn't actually all "nice" and "fragile" this whole season.


NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Onomaeius
I had a feeling he would die, considering in real life he was the first one to die (from the Spartacus/Crixus/Gannicus/Onomaeius circle), and he did so in a battle with Verinius.
Since Verinius is already dead, that battle can't occur, so maybe they just skipped the whole Verinius chapter from history, meaning Ono would have died
Still

Wtf? She will throw the baby from the cliff? lol wtf?

Okay I'm spent, best episode in all 3 seasons, holy crap that was intense, just....wow


EDIT: I'm really glad they decided to keep doing this series since their first episodes.
From what I recall the first 2-3 episodes of the 1st season were pretty bad.

That was absolutely amazing.

By the way to the guy above who said he doesn't remember Ashur doing anything to Naevia...


Erm...


He told Lucretia about her relationship with Crixus, raped her, and Lucretia made her his woman.

The whole reason Naevia was in the mines was due to Ashur.


SPOILERS


I am however very, very sad to see two of my favourite characters go, Ashur and Oenomaeus.

I thought the ending of Lucretia's story arc was perfectly done.

And of course Glaber was going to die anyway.

Going to rewatch it a few more times before season 3 anyway!

I forgot he told Lucretia about Crixus/Naevia.

I also loved the premiere. Not really sure why Spartacus thinks it's a good idea for him and all his generals to go on every minor skirmish or ambush, but I guess they have to or they wouldn't have all that much screentime.

Crassus showed more personality and badassery in that one episode than Glaber did in his entire tenure, I can't wait to see more of him. Julius Caesar should be coming into the show soon, hopefully he's interesting as well.

Poor trainer though
He was such a cool dude.

Yeah, Crassus seems badass, and he could even take up Spartacus in a 1v1 fight.

He also has that Batiatus/Ashur kind of scheme with the "yeah I knew Spartacus would assassinate those 2 dudes" plan.

Oh damn, this episode was just brutal. I've never had a problem with the violence on this show before, but some of the scenes tonight were tough to watch. Fantastic hour of television, though.

Caesar is awesome, tonight's episode confirmed that he's quickly becoming one of my favorite characters.
