Spartacus: War of the Damned 3.05 Sneak Peeks: Two Factions, One Choice
Tensions in the rebel camp emerged once they took Sinuessa en Valle and gained a key foothold against the Romans. Crixus, Naevia, and a certain percentage of the soldiers wanted to painfully dispatch of every last Roman in the city as payback for the atrocities they experienced; now that they were the ones in power, they could inflict the same type of physical and psychological warfare on the Romans that the Romans had inflicted upon them. However, Spartacus doesn't approve of his people turning into what they're fighting against and on the next episode of Spartacus: War of the Damned, he makes a move to secure protection.
With Crixus still adamant about his allegiance no longer being with the Bringer of Rain and Gannicus incapacitated after the blow to the head from Naevia, Agron has become an important pawn in the game for control of the encampment. As he very openly resents how close Crixus and Spartacus were, which often left him on the outside of negotiations and feeling like he didn't have a voice, he aligns himself with Spartacus in a move that could force Crixus out of Sinuessa en Valle for good. Spartacus may have fond memories of his friendship with Crixus and the role his friend played in taking Batiatus' ludus, but he can't have his army split down the middle like this anymore, not with the Romans lurking.
Elsewhere on Spartacus: War of the Damned, Nemetes has given the increasingly manipulative Caesar a sword, a move that could be the beginning of the end for many a rebel soldier. Not only is he a skilled fighter sought out by Marcus Crassus himself, he's the smartest person in the camp not named Spartacus and he uses that to his advantage in stirring an already tense environment up without looking like the bad guy. Caesar has done a fine job at both blending in with the crowd and exerting an influence on the mood at Sinuessa en Valle, even opting to kill fellow Romans to protect his cover, and if the rebels don't sniff him out soon, he'll inflict even more damage than he already has.
Spartacus: War of the Damned airs Fridays at 9:00 on Starz.
Whose side are you on: Spartacus and Agron or Crixus and Naevia? Does Nemetes have a death wish or does he truly trust Caesar? How long will it be before the four rebel generals are separated for good?
