Rome is a historical drama television series created by John Milius, William J. MacDonald, and Bruno Heller.
Rome is set in the 1st century BC, during Ancient Rome’s transition from Republic to Empire.
The episode begins with Brutus and Cassius on their march through Greece with their army of 100,000 soldiers to challenge Octavian. Cassius is worried about the grain supply for their army, whereas Brutus is cheerful and talking about saving the Republic. In Cisalpine Gaul, Marc Antony, Lepidus, and Octavian are devising a plan to surprise Brutus and Cassius. They believe their enemies do not know that they are reunited and hope to overcome Brutus and Cassius with an unexpectedly large army. Octavian comes up with a list of supporters of Brutus in Rome and proposes to send the list to Lucius Vorenus and order him to have them killed. Pullo is assigned to kill Cicero. Lepidus objects to the killing of some of the most honourable men in Rome but is persuaded by the prospect of the money the killing would bring to them. They resolve to march to Greece and leave Lepidus in Rome.
