If you have not already seen the episode, please do not ready this for it will contain spoliers.
So I've finished watching tonight's episode. I am at a loss for words right now. From the beginning of the episode, we see that the bond between the character's are exploited. There are quite a few scenes with Spartacus and Crixus expressing their brotherly love for one another, along with Crixus and Gannicus, etc. From this, you can assume that something bad is going to happen. Now, fast forward to the battle. We see that Crixus and his army defeat a commander's (his name escapes me) legions and are well on their way towards Rome. Now, it's the following battle that leaves me at a loss for words. We knew Crixus is going to be defeated, but we did now know how. By Marcus Crasssus? That would be great. By Julius Caesar? That's fine. But, by Tiberius? No. Absolutely not. Not only does Tiberius injure Crixus, but also Agron as well. Notice that he stabs them both in the back. Hmm, go figure. I haven't even mentioned the rape scene yet.
I have grown to dislike Tiberius' character tenfold. I would like to hear your reactions to this episode as well.
