I gave this ep a 9 -- solid but not as powerful as Beneath the Mask, which earned a 10 from me. I loved Lucretia's treachery -- it reminded me of the scene from Braveheart where the king's daughter-in-law whispers to him on his death-bed that the child of William Wallace will be the future king -- and the irony of its consequences. I wish, however, the writers had not chosen to go down the offensive "woman falls in love with her rapist" path.

Yet another solid 8...

Due more to Lucretia wonderful manipulations...

And another shocker ending too!

The show has been very consistent and very good...

The only thing lacking IMO is a Spartacus-type gladiator to WOW me...

10. Another good episode for Lucy. I am not giving spoilers away, but the end was shocking again. I can't wait to watch the final episode

I don't think any episode could rate lower than a 10 for me. 

I was totally blown away by Lucretia's deception. Never saw that one coming.

Next week should be interesting..

I gave it a 7.
Because I was still high from last weeks ep so I couldn't appreciate this one as much as I maybe should have. All i could think at Lucretia's deception was how she was weak and could never quite get anything right. I felt sorry for her, she wasn't evil she was sad. And that was good acting on Lucy's part because she does evil brilliantly. Lucretia is a sad woman who's neither ruthless nor compassionate enough to be strong. She's just a victim. I wish she's do something, act instead of react. Maybe next week, that would be nice. But I'm okay with her either way, I like her anyway.

I HATE the whole gannicus storyline, he showed potential in ep 1 but that totally didn't work out.

I'm also liking Lucrecia and Crixus more including the s1 stuff, he's a child and she's a victim and for a time between s2 and s1 they probably really shared like some sort of shelter from the world. It's nice and tragic.

I gave it a 10.
I liked every aspect of it.
Some really unexpected things like Melitta's death,that just adds so much to Lucretia's regret after letting her get raped now she killed her and just after she was so nice to her allowing her to "keep Gaia's memory".
Also Gannicus allowed him to be sold for nothing now that Melitta died.
And Lucy was sparkling as usual.The fear in the scene with Titus seemed to me a bit more than just fearing he would kill her,it almost seemed like somehow she is kind of disgusted by what she has done,though it was "necessary".I mean after Titus first tried to strangle her she could have just ran away he couldn't have run after her,she didn't have to stay in the room she regretted a bit she had to kill him.I feel sorry for her she wasn't a bad woman just lived in odd circumstances.
Waiting for the next episode.

Lucretia is not weak in my opinion, she is doing what any woman in her position would do.
In ancient times Women had no power. They were under the father and the husband.
Lucretia was forced to do certain things or she was going out from that house: with nothing left and her husband following her.
She wanted to save her husband and herself by killing Tittus and forcing herself to have a relationship with Crixus so she could have an heir for Batiatus.
What else could she do?

What else could she do?
Gaia was a strong woman, she lived in the same world and took matters into her own hands. Lucretia tries, she really does, that's one of the reasons she loves Gaia, Gaia is free and does what she wants. Lucretia only does things circumstances force her to do. And isn't very good at it.
But of course the uppity woman got what was coming to her and Lucretia's attempts fail.

But I don't really mind it that much because the show is very cynical over all and it's made well.

Maybe you should read this because Gaia and Lucretia were from two different social classes:

Lucretia couldn't do what Gaia was doing. Yet she did a lot considering her position.

Thanks for the link xenawp.It's interesting.

And I think Lucretia and Gaia were different regarding their husbands.Lucretia loves Batty,a twisted kind of love which I'm not sure it's good for any of them but neither of them would leave the other while Gaia didn't particulary care for her husband she just sought someone who could sustain her from the financial point of view,I don't think Lucretia wanted that.

It basically confirms what I was saying, it just ads some historical context.
