Top 8 Spartacus Scenes
4. Gannicus and Melitta are forced to have sex, while Oenomaus is forced to kill Doctore

Gannicus: Melitta, I….
Melitta: Just, see it done
.

I think both of these scenes could be on this list independently, but the juxtaposition of them together is what made this scene so affecting. While Gannicus is forced to sleep with his best friend’s wife in front of an extremely creepy audience, Oenomaus is forced to kill his mentor. Everyone is confused and heartbroken, and for so many different reasons. This scene exemplifies the emotional complexity that makes this show great.
