Um, Spartacus...that was a catastrophic fail

Really?  Really, dude?

When Katrina Law's character Mira died at the beginning of the Season 2 finale...I knew something was horribly wrong with this ep.

And then...they killed off Peter Mensah, y'all.  For real...RIP Oenomaus.

Yes, yes...I know the real Oenomaus died early on the fight against Rome, but the real Oenomaus was also a white dude from Gaul.  If you could rewrite him as an African, you're telling me you couldn't rewrite his death?  Seriously?  I mean, two of my main reasons for watching the show are now dead!  WTF?!??

Meanwhile, boring, overrated-ass Gannicus is still alive.

But then again, so's the new smokin' hot gay couple, so that's a plus.  And a first, since the writers of Spartacus have had a habit of invoking the Bury Your Gays trope with a vengeance.

RIP Mira

RIP Oenamaus

  2. Not gonna lie, I was waiting to see which gay was gonna get got!

    Mira's death: DAMN IT!!!!!

    Oenamaus's death: GOD DAMN IT!!!!!!!!

    The only thing (besides the gays living) that made me cheer was when Naevia got Asher's punkass.

  3. And the fact that Oenomaus got taken out by some punk-ass, ugly-ass Fauxgyptian sickens me to no end.

    Peter Mensah should've gotten to dish out a proper ass-whooping to that pretender and call it a day. And he should've used Gannicus as a human shield when he did it.

    1. I liked Fauxgyptian guy for the unstoppable badass he was supposed to be but no he is not worthy of taking out Oenomaus. Or at the very least Oenomaus should've been the one to take him out with him.

      "Peter Mensah should've gotten to dish out a proper ass-whooping to that pretender and call it a day. And he should've used Gannicus as a human shield when he did it."

      I'm okay with that. Truly deeply.

      Honestly if Spartacus doesn't return for a third season, I won't be upset.

      I thought that's what would happen!

    I saw a friend cussing about it (Oenomaus' death) on Twitter during the first airing, and I said, "Saw that coming!". I think even a five year old knows that POC characters rarely survive if they're not the star of the show. Gladiator was one of the few that broke that trope. I think the only clearly black male character who's (possibly) still around is the Nameless Wordless Black Guy.

    However, I can't complain about Naevia jacking Ashur's shyt up.

  5. He got killed??! Most definately will NOT be watching this season...unless the gay couple makes it to the end. Then I'll reconsider.

    1. We saw what happened to the other gay couple so don't hold your breath.

  6. The good thing about Peter Mensah is that we will be seeing him soon on True Blood. I was upset but as long as I can see him on something, I'm cool. I just read that he is 51 or 52 years old. Can you believe that? He looks like he's in his early thirties.

  7. Lawd Peter, oh Peter...baby, baby, baby...*mourns* And I don't even watch Spartacus. Jeez, that is one fine, fine specimen. I guess they couldn't have his sexy ass taking attention away from the white leads.

    For all the bitchy-ass trolls who are upset about the Gannicus comments...um, cry me a river, then go get a life. Obviously, this is a pro-Oenomaus blog. Go suck Gannicus's cock somewhere else...and stop taking this show so damn seriously. Obviously, we don't.

    Seriously, if Naevia &the gay couple hadn't survived this season, we'd be pretty much done with the show altogether.

  9. I watched the episode a few days ago and that was bs.
    Mira getting an axe in the chest..really? Oenamaus, given he was without a eye shouldn't have fell so easily. And both in the same episode was just too much..Naevia was great improvement and I'm happy she is so strong now and can be closer to Crixus. The gay couple is so cute! They better make it. >:(
