Lol such bullshit. Really thought they'd give better deaths to Agron and Crixus. It's actually a bit insulting.

Yeah, at least it was in battle, but I didn't want Crixus to go down from getting run through in his back by the fictitious rapist Crassus Jr. kid, Tiberius.

Yeah knew he was gonna die but the WAY he died. So pathetic. He should of been slaughtering Romans by the dozens, then taking on Ceasar AND Crassus together, gaining the upper hand THEN getting killed by the other or Tiberius from behind. Not some shoddy easy kill. I didn't even like Crixus that much but his character deserved more than that. So did Oenamaus last season.

I assume Gannicus will as well.

Not 100% sure about Agron even being dead tbh.

He sure laid down slow then. How many are left? 2 or 3? It's all going downhill now with what we know is coming like it or not.

But at least I don't think that guy is real, they just picked the name of another emporer to be the son, so they can give him what he deserves even though they can't do anything to Caesar or Crassus who made it to old age (unless they want to go way off the deep end to fiction).

Wait here's what the guy who plays Crixus said of it (and at the site it has spoilers for next week and what the Romans do with his head):

Quote:
Why do you think that even though Crixus was facing off with the mighty Caesar (Todd Lasance), it's the young Tiberius (Christian Antidormi) who ultimately took him down?
Bennett: Unfortunately, there's little Tiberius behind me with his spear, so that Crixus is brought down by this child, which is quite profound. He's brought down by the symbolic youth of Rome, the future of Rome. ... He can't overpower Rome because symbolically it's got that ongoing force that's going to go on for centuries to come.

Was it also fitting because Crixus took Tiberius' sword from that earlier battle?
Bennett: At the time, I went up to [Spartacus executive producer Steven] DeKnight, intrigued, and said, "Why am I taking this sword?" No one had given me an answer on it, except, "That sword comes in later on in the season." So we shot this scene where Crixus did examine this sword, and it was the harbinger of his own demise further down the line.

I guess I can see it that way. I just really wanted the big characters to get crazy heroic deaths. I mean they up Spartacus/Gannicus/Crixus to such heights in battle that they are near godlike against Roman soldiers. Then they just lower them everytime they face a main Roman. It sucks. Like Spartacus vs Glaber. Glaber was pathetic in terms of combat skills then all of a sudden he can give Spartacus an actual challenge!? It annoys the shit out of me :P

I'm still watching but this season does not live up to the previous ones.

Plot, dialogue, action scenes, all suck comparatively.

The best thing so far: Naevia is DEAD!!

If she's dead it will make what she does in the next episode a whole lot more interesting.
