The reflection of a goddess
GUYS, JUST FOR THE RECORD… CRIXUS IS NOT DEAD, NOR WILL HE DIE RIGHT AWAY! Luckily there’s a lot more in stock for him, so chill out. He’s gonna make it. Come on, he has just found Naevia. Do you honestly think he will let himself die now? No. And if you have seen the trailer and behind the scenes features, you will understand that he survives and that he will be reunited with his love once more. By the way, can’t wait for that!
Anyway… Episode 3 was epic. I was so pleased with it. To see Crixus’ heart being ripped from his chest when the news of Naevia’s unfortunate but false fate had reached him, was so human. I’m in particular speaking of the scene, where he is screaming in total agony. The development of our gaul is a real pleasure to watch. And I’m quite satisfied with Cynthia Addai-Robinson as Naevia so far. It looks promising!
I loved this episode purely because of its intensity and passion. I could almost feel the danger within my chest when the rebels entered the world of the mines. And for what? For love and for honor. I’ve been so pleased with Spartacus’ moral grounds in regard to his promise to Crixus. He is constantly putting himself into a risk by fulfilling it, and THAT is a true sign of brotherhood.
Then, I cried like a baby when Crixus found Naevia in the mines. The simplicity and the beauty of the scene was so loving, gentle and honest. But oh boy, to be reunited and separated. I’m having a hard time dealing with that fact. I felt so sorry for Naevia. And Crixus… He didn’t care about his own safety. The only thing that mattered for him was to see Spartacus disappear with Naevia. What a man.
To shorten a long story, emotions like this kicked in:
