Gaia learned the lesson last week, and it was reiterated in Friday's episode of Spartacus: Gods of the Arena: If you value your life, stay away from the House of Batiatus.
Fearing for her friend's sanity, Naevia sneaked sullied sex slave Diona out of the house. Everyone was too busy to notice her absence anyway since Titus set up a competition among the fighters to prove their worth or else get booted to the mines. When the Syrians went head-to-head, Dagan had more skill (and anger over learning of Ashur's pimping betrayal), but Ashur fought dirty, blinding Dagan and rendering him useless as a gladiator. Just before the final showdown, Gannicus learned that if he lost he'd be sold to Tullius ... so he threw the fight to Crixus, choosing to leave behind the torture of loving his best friend's girlfriend. How, uh, romantic. In the end, two people died, but not in the gladiator's arena. Lucretia had been poisoning Titus' honeyed wine all along (as if we didn't see that coming), so he's no longer an obstacle, but poor Melitta also drank some of the wine when she bid "farewell" to Gannicus.
