* And don't forget Servillia. After the death of her son, she parks herself outside Atia's house and calls out "Atia of the Julii, I call for justice" over and over and freaking over again while her servant pours ashes over her. After what seems to be at least twelve solid hours of this, Atia finally has had enough and goes outside, and Servillia has the following to say: "Gods below: I am Servilia of the most ancient and sacred Junii of whose bones the seven hills of Rome are built. I summon you to listen. Curse this woman! Send her bitterness and despair for all of her life. Let her taste nothing but ashes and iron. Gods of the underworld, all that I have left I give to you in sacrifice if you will make it so." Then she stabs herself in the heart, followed by her servant doing the same. Antony's reaction: "Now ''that'' is an exit."

** Gaia gets her finest moment in the previous scene, where she saves Pullo's life and dispatches Memmio in the process, even if it didn't - by any means - make things alright with him.

Added DiffLines:

* Mark Antony pulling Vorenus out of his depression after the deaths of Caesar and Niobe and charging him with taking over the Aventine ''collegia''. Though he may be a "drink-sodden, sex-addled wreck," to quote Cicero, that scene shows why so many were devoted to Antony, and how he was later able to get Lepidus' ''entire army'' to defect to him without so much as a sword being raised.

* Cleopatra decides to FaceDeathWithDignity, dresses herself as a queen, and commits suicide via a snake's bite [[BetterToDieThanBeKilled rather than endure the humiliation that Octavian plans to inflicts on her]], which will likely culminate in watching him murder her children. When Octavian and his troops burst into the room after she's been bitten by the snake, despite the pain and the fact that she's mere seconds from death, Cleopatra manages to stand up, face down Octavian, and spit out a DyingDeclarationOfHate that gives ''Octavian'' pause, then still has to wherewithal to sit back on her throne and [[TogetherInDeath clasp the hand of Antony's body as she dies]]. While perhaps slightly understated, a DyingMomentOfAwesome doesn't get much better than that.
