Spartacus Season 2 Episode 2 A Place In The World
Screener Preview by MaryD

Spartacus and his men liberate a Roman villa, but its slaves are wary. Oenomaus throws himself into the brutal Pits, and Glaber supports Lucretia's prophecies, despite Ilithyia's protests.

I held back from watching the second episode from the press kit until today. There are no spoilers in the preview below so it's pretty safe.

Well well well things do heat up a little in Season 2. There are two moments in this episode where I had a flashback to two Xena episodes - they were quick flashbacks so I didn't miss much on screen <g> and that same look on Lucy's face. Priceless. Absolutely priceless. Looney Lucretia is a joy to behold. I wonder what Viva Bianca would have done with the role of Callisto? Hmm would love to find out in an alternate universe.

Everyone is truly hitting this out of the park and I simply adore Liam as Spartacus; he is owing that role and it fits. Truly fits. Great call by Starz, Rob Tapert and Steven DeKnight. We are also introduced to some new characters which are quite interesting.

We also get to see more of Onomeous and his origins. I do love this character; the only one with any honour. A fantastic episode to continue the rebellion and prophecy from the Gods. Viva and Lucy are such a great team - Ilithyia, poor lass, she doesn't know what the heck is going on! She does, she doesn't, she does, she doesn't. It's going to be super to watch Ilithyia and Lucretia battle wits (well whatever wits Lucretia has left) but I suspect after seeing this, there is more to Looney Lucretia that are led to believe. MUCH more.
