Later in the rebellion, another Gaul, Castus and Celtic former Gladiator Gannicus also served as generals under Spartacus. The movement, in the course of what would come to be known as the Third Servile Warwitnessed numerous military successes for the escaped slaves. They routed the militia forces the Roman Senate sent to put down the insurrection by rappelling down the cliffs of Mount Vesuvius and attacking the Roman camp from behind.
With these early successes, thousands of fellow slaves swarmed to their ranks, until their numbers swelled to perhaps as many asFor reasons that are unclear, Crixus and about 30, followers appear to have separated from Spartacus and the main body of escaped slaves toward the end of 73 BC. Contemporary historians have theorized two possible reasons for the split. Spartacus kills a group of Roman soldiers along with their commander before finally engaging Crassus in a brutal battle.

Agron then arrives and kills the Romans carries Spartacus away from the battlefield. Pompey arrives at the end of the battle and steals credit for defeating Spartacus. Gannicus and all of the rebel prisoners are crucified and he dies remembering his glory in the arena as the Champion of Capua. He also sees the spirit of Oenomaius, smiling as he awaits his friend to join him in the afterlife.
Crassus is forced to have Kore crucified next to Gannicus as she was known to have joined the rebels, although he forgives her for killing his son. The victorious Crassus, Caesar and Pompey return to Rome in triumph where seeds of a power struggle between all three of them begin to take form along with the plans for the First Triumvirate.

In the final scene, Laeta, Sibyl and Nasir join Agron, one of the only remaining gladiators from the House of Batiatus and the only surviving rebel generalas the few dozen survivors of the defeated rebel army march on to start a new life.
Spartacus has set up in a theatre i. Everyone seems to be enjoying it except Eponine, who it turns out has never been to the Games and who is somewhat discombobulated to realise that Gannicus actually misses fighting in the arena.
Lots of fighting ensues, including some lovely inventive deaths, like the guy who gets impaled on two swords sitting in the ground and the guy who gets knifed in the back of the head with the weapon coming out through the eyes. After Spartacus has defeated two men at once, Gannicus takes on three and we finally see one kicked off the cliff, which the scene has clearly been saving up for that moment.
Spartacus and Gannicus are wearing as little clothing as usual while the Romans are in armour, but this seems to make no difference.
This all goes on for a while. Gannicus throws the head of one of the defeated Romans into the audience, Baldy takes out another Roman, a bearded rebel another, Helga another, and everyone has a whale of a time. Naevia says Crassus is lying.
So Naevia, unhappily moral creature that she is, punches the twerp, taunts him a bit, and lets him go. Maid Marian is not happy and nor is anyone else. Tiberius is led out without his armour, in a scrappy tunic, to the waiting Caesar, but just as Caesar is explaining how dangerous the journey is, Maid Marian runs screaming from behind and kills him herself.
