Spartacus: Gods of the Arena - "Missio" Review

While I enjoyed "Past Transgressions", "Missio" presents us with a Batiatus who has been bruised, beaten and ready to bounce back. The Batiatus we loved to hate in Blood and Sand is born and his scheme to get revenge and steal an opportunity right out from under his competitors is devilishly planned out and executed. Batiatus was quite literally a man on a mission.
