The epic Spartacus finale brought the expected bloodshed, but also tears. "Everybody was a big puddle," Spartacus creator Steven DeKnight tells TVGuide.com. "I still can't watch the finale without tearing up. ... But yeah, it's very emotional, not only because of the story, but also the whole experience." Spartacus' Manu Bennett on Crixus' downfall That experience involved two actors playing the titular hero.

Get ready to hear "I am Spartacus!" one last time. It has only been three years since Spartacus splashed its bloody way across Starz, and Friday's epic series finale (9/8c) will conclude the legendary rebel leader's quest to free the slaves of Ancient Rome. And although history spoils the ultimate outcome, it is how each character has lived — and in some cases, died — that is the key to the show's appeal. Spartacus ' Manu Bennett on Crixus' downfall Death is a complex thing on the series.
