Legion XIII – Passover

ROME BANNER

Rome: Passover

Quick rundown of the episode: This is going to be uber-quick as this week has been a huge clusterfuck of chaos and it hasn’t eased up at all. Watching Rome on Monday – one of the highlights of my week.

Basically Caesar and Niobe – still dead. Octavian is pretty smart and convinces Antony that they should make some sort of deal with those that murdered Caesar, since if Caesar is declared a tyrant and all his work undone, that means the men who took his life lose their positions of power as well since Caesar put them in those positions.

Vorenus is pretty  much freaking out because he cursed his children and they are now missing. Pullo pretty much taking care of him – role reversal, yeah? When they learn that the mafia dude took the kids, they go to him. He’s chilling in a steam room – still wearing the hideous gold chain around his neck. He tries to leave and finds out that my boys have killed all his men and want to know where Vorenus’ children are. He says he took them as payment owed him by Vorenus. He claims to have raped and killed them before dumping them in the river. He seems awfully smug about it…until Vorenus cuts his head off.

There are other things that happened but that’s the big things I remember.

My favorite part of the episode: Vorenus and Pullo taking care of each other. Even in the wildly dysfunctional way they do it. It just makes me happy.

My least favorite part of the episode: That the woman who Antony basically rapes because Atia’s not in the mood looks like she’s had the best time ever. And that the kids are missing. I don’t like any of that.

Favorite costume: Some of the costumes this week were awful – particularly Antony’s and Brutus’s. I think it was Jen who said it and it’s so true – they look like they’re wearing drapes. Don’t really have a fave this week.

Team Atia or Team Servillia, and why: I don’t even know. They’ve both proven they are ruthless when pursuing what they want. I can’t choose this week.

Favorite watch-a-long tweet:

What hairdo or costume would Bronwyn steal? Atia – Simple but gorgeous.

What made Jenny super happy? I would say Atia’s reaction to Antony’s lack of action during and after Caesar’s murder. That she said she would have ripped them apart…
