** Drusus's horse fell on him and trapped his leg against a sharp rock tearing it. We see the hideous open gangrenous gash on his leg and the make-up team did a great job at making it as disgusting as possible.

*** Even after he orders Messalina's arrest, he still cannot bring himself to blame her and seems to indirectly blame ''himself''.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Claudius' behavior in the last act of the books. Was he only feigning indifference, as the StoppedCaring entry suggests, or was he passive-aggressively grooming Nero as revenge for his generally miserable life?

** Herod's last words, written to Claudius:
--->'''Herod:''' ''"Marmoset, I am dying. My body is full of maggots. Forgive me. Forgive your old friend, who loved you dearly, yet secretly plotted to take the East away from you. I have failed. I played too dangerous a game. Little marmoset, you are a fool, but I envy you your folly. Do not weep for me; my punishment is just. I offended against the only living God. Farewell, my friend, whom I love more truly than you suppose. Farewell, little marmoset, my schoolfellow, and trust no-one. No-one. Your dying friend, Herod Agrippa."''
