The scene opens with the gladiators hearing from Batiatus. He tells them that Aemaous is the new Doctore and that Gannicus is going to be fighting in the Primus. Gannicus and Oenomaus walk off and Gannicus tells that Oenomaus deserves the position and Oenomaus tells that Gannicus does too. He walks off and Oenomaus tells Metlitta that Gannicus doesn’t see him as Doctore as much as the others. She tells that they will and that they all have to have some consequence done to them that puts others above them. Oenomaus comes out onto the field and tells Barca to spar with Crixus.

It is Titus, Batiatus’s father...
