As Pollo makes his way north, he comes across the latest battle between Caesar Octavian’s army and Marc Anthony’s. He meets the young victorious Caesar who gives him letters of passage and hints to where to find Verenus. Caesar has grown up into a young leader, adored by his troops (An older actor plays him now).

Pollo finds Verenus and they both ask Marc Anthony for permission to leave the legions. He gives his accord. Marc Anthony has lost 8000 men in his battle against Caesar. Meanwhile Brutus has successfully mounted an army of 9 legions strong, with more soldiers and gold pouring in.

Sevillia gets captured and tortured by Atia. But before she can end it, her torturer releases Sevillia into the streets of Rome.
