Spartacus: Blood and Sand (2010): S01E03 – Legends


Introduction

Spartacus: Blood and Sand is the first season of American television series Spartacus, which premiered on Starz on 22 January 2010.

Outline

As the gladiators prepare for the series of fights that will be the highlight of the upcoming Vulcanalia festival, Spartacus cleverly manoeuvres to secure the right to battle Crixus, the unbeaten champion of Capua, in the primus or final battle.

Despite his wife Lucretia’s objections, Batiatus reminds her that Spartacus’ bravery and previous exploits have “struck a chord with the public’s interest”. Meanwhile, Lucretia schemes to win favor with the wife of Gaius Claudius Glaber, the crafty and devious Ilithyia.

At a pre-fight banquet, she interests her in the desirous Crixus, although he is secretly enamoured of Naevia, one of the domestic slaves. At the Vulcanalia, Spartacus embarrasses his owners publicly, both by beginning to fight too early, and by surrendering instead of dying.
