Spartacus: Blood and Sand (2010): S01E08 – Mark of the Brotherhood


Introduction

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

Outline

Spartacus continues his reign as the champion of Capua at rival Solonius’ expense, while Crixus struggles to recover and to return to training. After comments made by Ashur, Batiatus begins to explore the possibility of selling the Gaul to a rival ludus in Damascus.

Meanwhile, Batiatus acquires six new recruits for 100 denarii, and Ilithyia chooses to sponsor one, a Gaul named Segovax, in order to both defy her husband and impress her socialite friends. After a slight to her husband’s honour by Spartacus at a private party, she implies promises of freedom to the recruit in exchange for his help.

Crixus, after working to regain Lucretia’s sexual favour, interrupts Segovax’s attempt to strangle Spartacus. Crixus and Spartacus, both wounded in the fight, begin to renew a sense of brotherhood with each other. Ilithyia, on a return visit, arrives in time to both witness her sponsored slave’s crucifixion and deny any knowledge of the reasons behind the attack.
