    Sissifying Crixus? Are you joking? He's the one all season that has been like "Let's go kill Romans!" and has been the one actually killing Romans the majority of the time. Saved Spartacus like three different occasions this season. Yet people think he's more sissy to Spartacus who has been "let's retreat" all season in nearly every situation. Why is Spartacus not sissy for doing what he thinks his wife would want and fighting for her, yet Crixus is one for doing the same thing? Crixus is acting exactly how Spartacus acted back in season 1 and 2 when he did not have his vengeance yet and was fueled by thoughts of his wife and freedom for all. Crixus used to be the one talking caution to Spartacus yet now the roles have reversed in the show.

    Would of been nice to see him shank Tiberius I agree but he also would have killed Ceasar if not for Tiberius' backstab so there is that.

It is to the characteristics of change itself that the mentat-generalist must look. There can be no permanent catalogue of such change, no handbook or manual.

    Enjoyed the episode, Lol'd at the little scene where ceaser and tibrius are saying why he isn't on horse back,

    But very played episode, but thought maybe the death scene / battle with markus's army could of been a bit longer

    I was really surprised that the key players made it so long without a death. They actually needed to kill someone at this point.

    I am gonna go out on a limb and say that Cesar will do anything at this point to screw over that arrogant little shit. I like his character too, so I want to see him fix soem of the damage he did to the Spartacus crew.

    I thought it looked like Crixus was surprised that Spartacus let him go, and later on it was almost as if Crixus started to have second thoughts. Especially the last scene with Navia, that look on his face, it felt to me like Crixus finally "came around".
    To declare that a personal, inner experience gives certainty about the workings of the universe is to assign far too much value to one’s subjective sense of conviction.
    I’m not that arrogant.

    The brain, marvelous instrument though it is, isn’t infallible. It can misfire, seize or hallucinate, and it can do so in a way that’s utterly indistinguishable from reality to the person experiencing it.

    Finally got around to watching the last available episode. Definitely a great one, and I appreciated how they were able to touch up on all major players without losing focus on the key plot line of the episode.

    As far as Caeser is concerned, I see him becoming more the strategist since Tiberius will be under heavy guard from this point onward. He'll get his revenge in some form or another on the last episode, and I suspect he'll even show some respect to Spartacus, turning him into enough of a likable character to do a spinoff.

    I agree, I think that he will be the one to kill Tiberius, and he really deserves it. I hate Tiberius so much -.-"

    Not gonna happen, unless Tiberius is some son of Crassus that died before he had his two recorded children. One of them died with him in Parthia, and he along with the other son served under Caesar in his Gaul campaign (where both of Crassus' sons had their first military training). The one who didn't die with his father was given political power by Caesar.

    Yeah but his two recorded kids aren't named Tiberius, so I think that it'll go the route of a previous non-recorded son that gets killed... I can dream okay?!

    With that being said though, Tiberius is a very well written character, along with all the others.

    No, unless they decided to craft some alternate history and turn it into complete fiction.

    My guess is there's going to be a spinoff following Caesar's conquest of Gaul.

    I KNEW who would get Tiberius! I totally called it midway through the episode.

    I'm glad Caesar's finally on top. Crassus losing his cool isn't so cool.

    Spartacus dies next episode

    Is the Caesar spin off confirmed or is it just rumors?

    Seeing this new episode made me realize just how sad it'll be without Spartacus x_X

    Is it confirmed he'll even die? I mean yeah it's expected, but his body was never found was it?

    Tbh i don't think it's going to stick to history, well it might, but i doubt it. Everyone dying, nothing changing at all in rome, all the slaves being crucified. While yes if it's sticking to history it'll do it, but crixxus' son died, which didn't happen (i think?). I can't see them ending the whole show with basically nothing good coming from it all.

    There are accounts of him being killed in the final battle. I mean you can't expect to find the body of a single person among possibly 40 000 with probably all of those who knew how he looked like being dead.

    I can't see it but this show and Game of Thrones have a characteristic of being rather masochistic. And honestly they've realized that a measure dose of that doesn't really make the viewers not like the show. On the contrary. On the other hand, they'd have to go all the way in that regard and kill off everyone in order to stick to history. But I feel like that's what they're going to do. They've done that up until now.

    Sure, they've introduced certain elements that weren't known to detail, but for example simple facts like Oenomeus dying that early in the revolt is something they did stick to. From what I've been able to gather, they stick to historical facts and give themselves the liberty of doing everything else (such as individual characteristics of characters, for example, which is something that isn't recorded in history) the way they want to.

    Tiberius never existed (that we know of). Historically Marcus Crassus has two sons, both of which are mentored under Caesar on his campaign in Gaul. One dies with Crassus when he goes on his last war campaign, and AFAIK the other dies of old age after being a Roman senator.
