Gods of the Arena The Bitter End Review from The Guardian's The Guide 23 April 2011
Tonight’s finale, The Bitter End, may not have as provocative a title as season one’s brilliant denouement, Kill Them All, but it matches it in every department, even surpassing it in some.
This mini-series has all been about Batiatus’s and Lucretia’s descent into hell, and now they’re fully paid-up residents of the underworld, it’s time for bloody reckoning to those who have slighted them. It’s also time for the grand opening of the new arena. Who shall emerge victorious? It’s not as cut and dried as you’d think.
