2-02: (ep. XIV) - Son of Hades

I have a lot of love for this episode. Passover was a good opener, but it had a lot of long, talky scenes, whereas this one seemed to move at a greater pace.

Cleopatra, daughter of Ra, mistress of…blah, blah, blah…popped up again. She had more hair this time and it was a definite improvement. In a suitably smoldering scene, she and Antony had their first on-screen exchange, where they managed to trade insults as well sexy glances. Antony’s, “Your son will eat shit and DIE before I make him legal,” was another contender for LOTE.

Antony and Octavian’s manly bitchfight was one of the highlights not just of this episode but of the whole 2nd season. Fantastic intensity from both Purefoy and Max Pirkis, who saved his best work for last.

Star of the Episode: Mark Antony
Line of the Episode: “I am a son of Hades! I fuck Concord in her arse!” - Lucius Vorenus
Death Count:
Runner-up: “Die screaming you pig-spawned trollop!” - Atia (to Cleopatra)

2-01: (ep. XIII) - Passover

“Caesar is dead!” But never fear, because HBO’s Rome still lives, for 10 more episodes at least.

Mark Antony seemed to be given more screen time in this one episode than he was granted in the whole of the first season!

Star of the Episode: Mark Antony
Line of the Episode:
Death Count: 2 (Quintus Pompey and Erastes Fullman). Caesar and Niobe don’t count as they were already dead at the ep’s opening.
