Mira, Donar, Agron, and somemore burn it down and the murder of Albinius by Glaber, which has as a ripple effect that immediately alters the plans and lives of those closest to him – namely his daughter Ilithyia and his son in-law Gaius Claudius Glaber. The effect is to see Glaber has control of his wife and unborn heir; while Ilithyia sees her hopes of a marriage to Varinius vanish without the influence of Albinius to guide her wishes.

The rebels return from the burning arena to their camp at Vesuvius with a badly injured Oenomaus. Agron tells the rebels about the arena, and Chadara asks of Rhaskos which Donar tells of his death. Then you see Naevia returned to Crixus's arms asking "Do i yet dream"  Ashur suggests to Glaber that three of his Roman soldiers do not stand a fighting chance against one of Spartacus’ gladiators. Forced into demonstration, Ashur puts down a trio of Glaber’s men before informing the Praetor that he was considered lowest amongst Batiatus’ men.

Meanwhile, despite the victory in demolishing the arena, uncertainty grows amongst some in Spartacus’ group. While Mira continues to find ways to be of aid to Spartacus, Naevia and Chadara are far less certain of the path they are on. As Chadara seeks her place by giving herself to men, Naevia is so traumatized by her time in the mines that she contemplates taking her own life, stopped only by Crixus and the assurance that he will teach her to live a life of value despite all that has been taken from her.

Gannicus, who remains with the group only to see that his friend and source of guilt, Oenomaus will recover from injuries sustained in the collapse of the arena. Naturally, given Gannicus’ skill and fortitude, Spartacus is eager to convince him to join their ranks, however Gannicus intends to instead walk in solitude. Before he can leave, Gannicus is accused of being in possession of a map which would lead the Romans right to the rebels’ camp. The denial only serves to brings Gannicus to an inevitable confrontation with Spartacus. After Mira’s well-placed arrow
