Storyline

Picking up exactly where Season One left off on the Ides of March, 44 BC, Caesar has been assassinated, stabbed to death, and his bloody corpse lays in the senate. The rapidly spreading news shocks the city. Even consul Marc Antony must run to the safety of Atia's house where he swears to take bloody revenge on Caesar's murderers, but for the time flees with Caesar's family to the north. But Octavian keeps a cooler head then his mother. Calpurnia insists on the private reading of Caesar's will, which names Gaius Octavian as his adopted son and full heir and makes a gift to each citizen while freeing Posca (the slave who reads it out) with a stipend, but they must fear a rightful tyrannicide will be declared allowing full confiscation. Octavian points out legally declaring Caesar a tyrant would also invalidate all his deeds, including mandates held from him, so Brutus' followers have an interest in a full pardon instead. Hearing about Vorinus accidental killing of Niobe, Pullo rushes ... Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

Contrary to popular belief, coins are not put on the eyes to pay the "ferryman" to crossover. The appropriate way is as in Niobes funeral, put under the tongue so as when she enters her first word would be to pay the "ferryman" for her journey to the afterlife. See more »

Goofs

After the death of Caesar the slave Posca becomes a freedman and starts working for Mark Antony. However, under the Roman code of patronage freedmen remained in service with their former master and subsequent heir. So Posca should have started working for Octavian, not Mark Antony. See more »

Quotes

Gaius Octavian: Mother, I must stay in Rome.
Atia of the Julii: Eh?
Gaius Octavian: I must stay in Rome. I am Caesar's son. I must protect my legal rights.
Mark Antony: There's blood? Quite the little Spartan.

Two Burning on fire!!
4 July 2017 | by elo-equipamentosSee all my reviews

According to some sources and what l had read about this classic story in that period,all showing in this prime episode really happened after Julius Caesar's death,but something bothered me a total lack of voices of Romans citizens,a crowd of angry people stay quiet about Caesar's death...the emperor whose they loved....nothing about this important facts from those time,so the episode is accurate and fine all agreements between both sides of power is correct,but the producers could spend some money to show this disturbance that happened in those days!!!

Resume:

First watch: 2017 / How many: 1 / Source: Blu-ray / Rating: 8.5
