Spartacus: War of the Damned Sneak Peek: For the Glory of Rome

Spartacus War of the DamnedMarcus Crassus is a well-known Roman noble whose reputation precedes him by miles. He may be swimming in coin and other resources, but his activity in the community has made him a man with many a social connection, which can come in handy in such an unstable environment. While Crassus seems like a prototypical Roman leader, adept at winning over the people with a pretty word and a lot of charisma, he’ll be taking the back seat, at least initially, during Spartacus: War of the Damned. How will his constituents, particularly his ambitious son, handle the news?

On the season premiere of Spartacus: War of the Damned, Crassus has agreed to serve beneath Cossinius and Furius in the battle against Spartacus. His extensive military background might have ordinarily given him the lead on a mission like this, but after Glaber’s men were decimated by the rebel army, now’s not the time to quibble about rank, individual glory, or responsibility. It’s about the leaders of Rome putting their great city above their personal gain, at least for the time being. It’s the time for Rome to band together to take out a threat to their status quo and while Crassus’ son Tiberius might not like seeing his father “lower” himself and take a perceived inferior position, it’ll all be worth it to get Spartacus once and for all.

Spartacus: War of the Damned premieres Friday, January 25th at 9:00 on Starz. You can check out the trailer for the season here, as well as a set tour here and a look at each side of the final battle here.

What are you expecting from the final season of Spartacus? Do you think that the show can do justice to the full history of the great warrior? How long will it take for Crassus and Caesar to gel and become a force to be reckoned with?
