After next week’s finale, Spartacus will be on hiatus until season two premiers: Spartacus: Sand and Blood. But that’s not going to happen until early next year.
So what happened in episode 5?
Last night, the gladiators were all put to the test at the House of Batiatus. Batiatus’ father, Titus announced that he wanted to see a tournament to determine the worth of the men in his stable of gladiators. Batiatus was also forced to make a decision: either leave his wife or leave the house and all of his riches. Either path guarantees only that a family bond will be destroyed. Crixus stands dedicated to proving himself in the upcoming tournament – if he doesn’t win he will be sold. And there are two deaths: one I saw coming and one I didn’t see coming.
