7cb1d79195 Now the property of Quintus Batiatus, Spartacus finds himself at Batiatus' gladiatorial combat school. He is anything but cooperative and refuses to do as he is told leading to frequent conflict with his trainer and other gladiators, particularly Crixus. Claudius Glaber would still like to see him dead and takes delight in telling him that his wife is still alive and that his men raped her after they were taken into bondage. Batiatus, who is having severe financial problems and is in debt to money lenders at usurious rates of interest, is hoping to gain favor with Glaber. A evening of food and entertainment doesn't go as planned when Glaber and his wife, looking down on their provincial hosts, leave as quickly as they arrive. Glaber's visit does provide the carrot Batiatus needs to reign in Spartacus: cooperation in return for the promise of finding Sura.
Enslaved at a school for gladiators, a defiant Spartacus is blackmailed in an attempt to make him comply.
For me personally I hate when writer's employ plot devices like this. In the first episode they prove to us repeatedly that Spartacus is a veteran warrior. Skilled with a myriad of weapons and shield and extremely proficient in one on one combat or fighting large groups where the odds are greatly against him yet always prevailing. He is masterfully skilled in all forms of combat and proves it not only on the battlefield, but also in a siege on his village where he rescues his wife and finally in the arena where equipped only with a sword against four opponents who are fully armed and armoured and he prevails every time. Suddenly in this episode we're expected to believe that this veteran warrior is suddenly unskilled because fighting in the arena requires specialized training. Now I could see this making sense if in the arena they used some specialized form of combat or weapon. They do not. In the arena they use all the tools that they spent all that time showing us in the first episode how proficient Spartacus is with them. Primarily a sword and shield. Weapons that Spartacus time and again showed his expertise with in the first episode. In this episode we're suddenly expected to believe that the man who prevailed against multiple opponents repeatedly in the first episode suddenly is defeated by everyone he battles including a much less skilled opponent. Even when they finally give him a victory it's one he barely achieves. All this seems to me to have been done to create dramatic effect and to break Spartacus' character down so he finally submits to Batiatus. They wasted an entire episode on this. For me I just couldn't suspend disbelief enough to believe that the man they went out of their way to show as an unparallelled warrior in the first episode was suddenly almost an unskilled buffoon on the battlefield on this episode. They already had all the motivation they needed for Spartacus to submit to becoming a gladiator all along and it's what they ultimately ended up using, his love for his wife and the promise of eventual freedom so he could rescue her. The fact that they used this motivation any way, just made the choice to make Spartacus such an inept warrior for most of the episode seem even more ludicrous to me. I often feel like writer's are insulting our intelligence when they go out of their way to make us believe one thing in one episode and then shortly thereafter in subsequent episod
