Rome: The Ram Has Touched The Wall

Pompey decides to send Caesar another offer in hopes of limiting his power, in which Caesar decides to take some time to think upon the issue, despite Mark Antony’s objections. Meanwhile, Lucius Vorenus refuses to allow some thugs to harm a citizen in debt, which causes him trouble in his job as the thugs he threatened worked for the biggest crime boss in Rome. Titus Pullo also is hired as a military tutor for Octavian, though he discovers that Octavian isn’t as helpless as he seems to be.
