She then cuts her throat for good measure, spraying blood all over Glaber. Glaber says they can't tell him what to do. Lucretia consoles her and then presents her a big dagger to kill him. As the series develops, the story follows the betrayals and machinations of Roman life and a tale of one man's heroic quest for vengeance. The inspiration behind this series is the Thracian Gladiator Spartacus, who led a slave uprising against the Roman Republic. Spartacus spies a signal on the mountain.
Crixus points out they'll be trapped. Glaber and Ashur are trying to figure out where Ilythia was kept when one of the evil posse arrives with Lucius' head. He asks if she can find it in his. Spartacus and Gannicus capture Varinius who tells the soldiers at the temple to lay down their arms. She asks if that's all he wants from her since he's turned from her.
In the woods, Glaber is overseeing the lobbing of fhe fireballs. Spartacus and the temple gang are working on their training. However after Glaber reneges on the deal and switches his attentions from the Getae to attack Mithridates in Asia Minor, the Thracians feel betrayed and mutiny. Ilythia materializes and says she's only taken to bed and that the bruise on her face was from misplaced footing in the bath. Lucretia agrees saying everything was taken from her-- this house, her husband-- and to turn from seeking justice would be to turn from those they claimed to love. . She says she'd even move against Varinius.
Spartacus stands watch on the wall. She says it's not enough. Captured by Glaber, Spartacus is condemned to death as a Gladiator, whilst his wife Sura is condemned to slavery. He says he wants her to train more archers. He calls him out on trying bag Ilythia.
Glaber says he's surprised that she saved his life after he cast her aside. Varinius tells him to come back to Rome and take care of Ilythia before another man makes a run at his wife. She says she feels bad she didn't give him time to properly mourn his wife. Later, she awakens and explains Spartacus let her go. The Egyptian faces off against Oenemaus. Glaber wants to wait them out and when hunger and madness drives them from their perch they shall kill them all.
She laments the state of their union and wonders if there's nothing between them anymore. Seppia falls into the pool. The Thracians had been persuaded by Claudius Glaber to serve as auxiliaries in the Roman legions in a campaign against the Getae, who had often plundered Thracian lands. And Ilythia proceeds to reclaim her husband by banging him with a vengeance, her all pregnant, him all bloody, with Seppia's body floating in the pool. He takes down her top and starts making out with her.
She puts the dagger in Seppia's hand. He pits Agron and Crixus and Oenmaus and Gannicus for the final battle of enemies. Gannicus and Oenemaus prevail and everybody hugs and Crixus and Agron make nice, in their way. Ilythia and Lucretia meet up and agree that this is the way to go. Now all naked he tries to touch her and she freaks out and whacks him with a pitcher and he falls by the pool.
Spartacus and Gannicus attack one group as Agron and Crixus and Naevia and others take on forces that attack at the temple. He disentangles himself calling her a stupid girl thinking that a bracelet is proof of anything and that she should stop bugging him. He says Glaber will give his freedom after they take Spartacus at Vesuvius. The masked soldiers hop the wall and walk unhindered through the sleeping masses. Gaius Claudius Glaber and his Roman troops are sent to Capua to crush the growing band of freed slaves that Spartacus leads before it can inflict further damage. Spartacus, however, proves to be a formidable gladiator, and defeats the four gladiators tasked with executing him.
She says she was trying to save him. Lucretia says that Glaber will then head to Rome with Ilythia and he'll be free but alone. She says they're both monsters and together they should seize the heavens. Crixus wants to kill Varinus but Spartacus tells him to wait. Freedom to spend his treasure without constraint.
