Play Now Spartacus Season 1 Episode 10 “Party Favors” Online
Spartacus and Crixus are set up to fight in an exhibition match for Numerius’ coming of age party, and Crixus sees a chance to resume his position. Batiatus, realising Spartacus’ importance to his ambitions, invites him to play a board game called Latrunculi, but Lucretia jealously disapproves of the two men sharing wine. Meanwhile, Naevia has troubles with the guard she stole the key from, and risks all to share time with Crixus. At the party a now revived Ilithyia, still haunted by memories of the murder, seduces Numerius and has him switch Spartacus’s opponent to Varro. Despite it being an exhibition match, Numerius further surprises by not granting mercy to Varro, forcing Spartacus to reluctantly kill his only friend. Later that night, after Batiatus’ interest in politics is dismissed by Calavius, he vows blood revenge for his fighter’s death. Distraught with grief, Spartacus returns to his cell and vents his rage until Mira comes in to comfort him.
Numerious, the Magistrate’s son, is about to celebrate his birthday and the celebration will be at the house of Batiatus, so he decides to have Crixus and Spartacus facing each other in a demonstration battle. But when Ilithyia approaches Numerious, he changes his decision drastically.
