The episode begins on a battlefield soaked in blood, with bodies and limbs everywhere. It is taking place on a mountainside. The Romans are complaining about how well the enemy forces are doing. Suddenly Spartacus arrives on his horse unleashing death in his path. His horse is speared and he falls. Just as a leader yells at his men to kill him, the uprising comes up from behind and the battle is afoot, blood spurting, necks cracking, swords swinging. The Roman leaders finally, retreat as Spartacus and his troops do in the final stragglers. There is much rejoicing by Crixus, Gannicus, and Naevia but Spartacus says they haven't won anything yet. ..
