The scene opens with Gannicus dragging Ilythia through the forest. They are met by hunters who mention that Spartacus set upon a wagon and killed some people. He claims she is his wife. But she balks and spills the truth. So he kills them. She runs. She says Glaber will pay for her return. He says he doesn't see it forthcoming but that her life is not his to take. Mira and Spartacus flirt in the woods as they hunt. They make out. Gannicus appears and tells Spartacus to take the life of Glaber's woman.

Glaber says word of this cannot reach Rome and have people whispering about him in the Senate. Lucretia pleads that she must be found. ..
