Spartacus: Gods of the Arena
Spartacus: Gods of the Arena more than made up for its relatively tame episode the previous week with Friday's bacchanalian excesses. When Titus is away (buying slaves), the House of Batiatus will play (with slaves).
Ludus business went well enough: Syrians Ashur and Dagan finally earned their place through combat (although Ashur didn't deserve the victory), Gnaeus took up the net and trident (to fight, not fish) and Crixus made peace with Barca. To impress yet another wealthy, connected Roman who heard of the notorious Batiatus parties, the Unholy Three conspired to get Titus out of the way visiting Neapolis. At the Batiatus orgy, male and female slaves were equally used and abused, Tullius party-crashed and wounded Gannicus in an unfair fight, Gannicus and Melitta acknowledged they had feelings for each other, Titus gave Batiatus an ultimatum to get rid of Lucretia and Tullius ended poor Gaia's search for a husband by killing her during their tryst. This show is really getting good ... we mean good in a horrifying kind of way.
After much speculation, the truth was revealed in Friday night's episode of Fringe: The other Olivia (Anna Torv) is pregnant with Peter's baby.
As if the two universes couldn't be more complicated, the producers of the Fox series tell TVGuide.com exclusively that there will be much larger things to come. Will Walternate (John Noble) use Bolivia's baby to lure Peter (Joshua Jackson) back to the alternate universe? The sinister answer may surprise you.
