I can't believe he's dead already. sad
There's still 2 episodes to go and I really thought he'd be in it til the end.

What will happen to Naevia?
Will Spartacus survive to the last episode?
Is Agron dead too or will he survive his injuries?

I don't want it to be over, I fucking love Spartacus sad

You know what, I think this here looks as though it will fill the spartacus shaped hole in my life next year. Michael Bay, pirates, men with beards shouting, and what appears to be Howard from Take That in his 'dreads' phase. Yeah, break me off a piece of that.

You would need to watch all 3 series, it's great.

It was on sky 1 I think. You may need to rent the box set!

I know I am far far too late to ask this--but when and where is it broadcast? Do I need a dreaded sat dish? Tired of hearing how fabulous this show is and I have completely missed it.

fanny sad

It is AMAZING how they made something so awful and depressing and sad into something vaguely uplifting and satisfying. I've been thinking about it all day.

Wahhh!

Really thought Agron would die too. What more fitting end sees Agron and loving Nasir open bar in Mykonos?

I bawled like a baby at this episode sad
The very end scene with Andy Whitfield....Oh. My. Gods. Shivers up the spine stuff.
What an ending though...the writers didn't pull any punches did they??
I will REALLY miss Spartacus sad sad sad

It was such a superb ending. I so wished Spartacus had finished Crassus though and naevia deserved better. But there had to be some harrowing bits, it couldn't all be awesome flaming hammer death.

HERE BE SPOILERS, IF YOU HAVE NOT WATCHED LAST EP, TAKE COCK FROM ARSE AND SET TO PURPOSE:

"There is no greater victory than to fall from this world a free man"

sad

I was crying practically the whole way through.

Andy sad

Gannicus sad

Saxa sad

Really glad that nagron escaped together.

Oh I read a really funny comment on av club, it said something like

"Killing Romans with a giant hammer = badass

Killing Romans with a giant hammer WHILE ON FIRE = superbadass

Last words being "fuck your mothers" = there are no words"

Oh my god what an ending!
Brilliant final episode, blubbed all through but especially at the very end of the credits where they showed Andy Whitfield screaming "I'm Spartacus!!"
Glad he didn't die alone at the end, Agron and Nasir with him was very sweet. Didn't like Gannicus and Naevia going the way they did sad

Really hate that it's over, where am I going to get my fix of sweaty, bloody, muscly gladiators now?

Who's watching? sad

I'll be bereft when it finishes sad

Spartacus's body was apparently never found. So I dunno.... I'm guessing either he, or gannicus or someone at least will escape. I dunno. If spartacus does die, I hope Sura comes back for an emotional reunion in the afterlife. I used to love it in season one when her apparition would pop up and boobily entice him to inflict carnage.

Here is the Caesar spin-off stuff. Not sure how they'd plot that one, though - he spends most of the 60s in Rome doing political stuff. Maybe skip to Gaul??

cookielove Tue 09-Apr-13 12:05:13

I'm with Ehric all there was, was a hug and kiss and then see ya!! hmm

I was sure agron was still alive, he didn't have a passionate enough farewell with his BF. if he was off to die they would have had more than a peck wink [slashh0ar]

FannyFifer Tue 09-Apr-13 08:15:45

Spent most of this episode just gazing at Spartacus who was looking mighty fine!

Glad Agron was still alive, but bloody hell next week is going to be horrendous, they won't change the ending will they? hmm

I missed the first half hour so I was a bit confused but I agree about naevia and Tiberius.

Iheartcows Mon 08-Apr-13 23:21:58

Oops posted too soon.
Spartacus looked particularly hot tonight I thought wink

Dreading the last episode, I don't want it to end.

Is there any truth in a spin off series about Caesar?

Iheartcows Mon 08-Apr-13 23:19:53

Another emotional and gripping episode tonight.
Glad that little shit got his comeuppance but I hoped it would've been Naevia that finished him off.
Loved the gladiator fight with the Romans, Spartacus l

Poor Andy Whitfield. So tragic. Wasn't quite the same without him. RIP flowers

I remember rolling my eyes at the series' graphic portrayal of sex & violence ("oh dh, they've ripped off '300' & it's crappy soft porn" grumble, grumble") & now here I am mourning the passing of great characters well played.smile

Ah Helena, your post made me giggle, especially your second one. grin

Helena I have a 4 year old, I'm doing a masters degree and I live in the middle of nowhere. Tv is my life. Seriously. I way over invest! Tv, and books and occasionally fan fiction. I'm hoping to regain a life around 2014...
