Vi res!

Vi res!

Wake up, scum.

On your feet.


If I was going to kill you, Celt...

I would have done it already.

What is your name?

We will have to speak at some point.

No, we don't.

What we have to do

is kill each other at some point.

So my name's my own,

I have no interest in learning yours.

Everyone out!


You're getting old, Atticus.

Plenty of young flesh out here

just aching to take apart a champion.

When I win in the arena tomorrow,

I'm a free man.

It's Roman law.

And there's nothing you can do about it.

Atticus, my champion,

tomorrow you have the honor

of closing the games.


let us see if I have found an opponent

worthy of you.


Who's the poor bastard

who has to die for my freedom?

Unlucky, Celt.

Very unlucky.

But I'm going to take it easy on you.

Give you a fighting chance for tomorrow.

You may have earned your reputation, but

not fighting against a gladiator like me.

You made that a little too obvious.

Did I make that too obvious?


Get away!

Get out of the way! Get up, scum!

Back to work!

Why did you save my life?

No gladiator should die

from a blade to the back.

When you die,

the blow will come from the front.

I promise it will be tomorrow.

And it will come from my hand.

Well, I can make you a better promise.

When the time comes,

your death will be quick.

And it will come from my hand.

Don't worry.

Your plan is nothing short of brilliance.

Only a mad man would advise

the Emperor against investing.

Well, let us hope that

the Emperor has not sent us one.

Senator, do forgive us for not being able

to receive you at the harbor.

Severus, you're a busy man.

I understand entirely.

Besides, if I had a wife

as beautiful as yours,

I'd be in no hurry to forsake her company.
