* Theokoles is a [[Franchise/{{Highlander}} Highlander-style Immortal]].
* Spartacus take place in the same universe as ''ThreeHundred''.
** Theokoles is a descendant of Leonidas. In the motion comic, it's mentioned that Theokoles' DisappearedDad was a Spartan.
* Lucretia [[ImAHumanitarian cannibalized]] the Ludus victims. How else did she survive that long in the Ludus post-Rebellion?
* Glaber isn't the father of Illithya's child, Spartacus is. Remember the BedTrick episode?
** [[ADateWithRosiePalms She obviously does]]. It does raise certain questions, though; Season one's timeline is hard to pin down but it seems that at the time Illithya arranged to fuck a gladiator, she hadn't seen Glaber in a bit and it wasn't until the season finale some time later that they saw each other again. If this turns out to be the case, how long before Glaber realizes the timeline in Illithya's pregnancy is off?
** Confirmed.
** Entirely possible he would not have cared, any more than Batiatus would have about Lucretia's child really being Crixus'. By the late Republic era, the Roman upper class was suffering from a serious (and mysterious) fertility problem. For example, Julius Caesar had only one legitimate child, his daughter Julia, and several supposed illegitimate ones he never confirmed one way or the other. Polite pretense was the order of the day for many who wanted heirs but were having trouble producing them. That and adoption.
* Ashur Saved Lucretia. He's the only other person we know survived. And uninjured too. He might have sewn her up after the gladiators left her for dead.
** Confirmed.
* Lucretia is ObfuscatingInsanity.
** Both of the above WildMassGuessing may have been confirmed by Episode two.
*** Ashur saving Lucretia is confirmed by episode 3. Also confirmed is that if nothing else, Lucretia is hamming up her act to manipulate Glaber. However, she also seems to at least partly buy into it, though she may just be keeping the act up around Ashur, as well.
*** Whether she was really insane in the beginning or not, by the end of ''Vengeance'' she is for real - and it is horrific!
* When Seppia finds out Glaber killed Seppius, she will kill him.
** Ashur's loot chest will be how she finds out; she'll see a familiar piece of jewelry in it or on Lucretia.
*** Yes, and no. Lucretia recognized the bracelet, showed it to Seppia, then urged her to kill Glaber while they were alone in the bath. It didn't work out the way Seppia would have hoped.
* Someone else knows about Lycinia's murder. As it stands, everyone we know knew is dead. Someone else has to know so they can tell Crassus and give Crassus a personal stake in the fight.
** Spartacus?
*** It wasn't made explicit as to whether or not he knew about Lycinia being killed. He was hauled out of the room before that happened, and Batiatus didn't mention it to him. That would also require him feeling petty enough to tell Crassus, and considering he passed up a golden opportunity to let Glaber know he fucked his wife, that doesn't seem in character. The only other person who might know is Naevia, who probably helped dispose of the body.
* Naevia will be captured or killed at some point in season 3. Historically, after his victory over Glaber, Spartacus planned on leaving Italy for Gaulia, leading his army of freed slaves out of the reach of the Romans. This caused a divide, with Crixus choosing to stay in Italy to loot and plunder. RapePillageAndBurn aren't exactly in character for the show's portrayal of Crixus, however. Desiring to free or avenge Naevia, however, would be.
** As of episode three, he may have another motivation -- revenge for what's already been done to her.
* Caesar will be sent undercover among the slaves. His beard has been repeatedly mentioned as un-Roman, but Crassus wants him to keep it for some reason. What else but infiltration? He's just got back from time overseas -- he probably knows how to pose as a non-Roman fairly convincingly.
** Confirmed.
* Kore is Tiberius' mother. Tertulla had her sleep with Marcus when she couldn't conceive at the time, and it was decided to pass the baby off as her own. It adds another layer to Marcus and Kore's affections for each other, and it explains why Tiberius - a spoiled brat who doesn't think much of slaves - is fond of her to the point where he wanted to avenge her when she told him how Caesar nearly raped her. And it explains Tertulla's implied preference over his younger brother and her...oddly indifferent reaction to Tiberius going to war. She kept asking Crassus to put the boy through training to be a Roman soldier, a position that's more glorious than being a philosopher, which is where he seems to be headed. She wants her natural son, who she sees as Crassus' rightful heir, to be every bit the soldier his father is, not the bastard child of her slave. And given the events of episode five, it's something that Starz would do, to have Tiberius' real parentage shown [[spoiler: on the heels of him raping Kore.]]
** Going off that, Crassus' fury over what Tiberius did will result in Tiberius being condemned "damnatio memoriae," which is why we have never heard of him.
*** Implied but not fully confirmed with Crassus crushing Tiberius' death mask.
** And when Tiberius corners her in the villa, her first words to him are [[spoiler: ''All the years I cared for you...did they mean nothing??'']]

[[WMG: So, who will survive?]]
History and honour both demand that the story end with Spartacus's death, in battle or on the cross (they'll probably go with battle), but they'll probably want to avoid a complete downer ending. Somebody has to get away, somehow. I'm guessing Crixus and Naevia will die within minutes of one another, but Gannicus may yet survive -- not least because Sibyl seems to have been introduced to give him the option of a peaceful ending. Which is a pity, because Saxa is awesome. Agron and Nasir may also make it out, assuming they can get over the pretty-boy pirate.
* [[spoiler: Confirmed for Agron and Nasir. Naevia is killed by Caesar and Gannicus is crucified.]]

[[WMG: The Rebels are going to win.]]
In a shocking swerve ending, it will turn out that the series takes place in an alternate universe- accounting for the various faults in historical accuracy.
* That would be awesome
* Jossed. The Romans win, though the rebellion gives its DyingMomentOfAwesome.

[[WMG: Laeta is going to try and kill Spartacus in episode 8]]
The preview for episode eight has the two kissing, only for Spartacus to rebuff her saying that he could "never hold [her] to heart" because shes Roman. She replies that "Its not [his] heart I'm after tonight". Now, the obvious meaning for this is that she's after, ahem, another one of his organs. But the double meaning is that she's after his ''life'', and will try to kill him in revenge for what his war has put her through, subverting the whole season's setting up her as his new love interest.
* Jossed.

[[WMG: So...who gets to kill Tiberius?]]
The guy has apparently made it his mission in life to get on as many shit lists as possible. Let us count the possibilities, shall we?
* Kore. This one should be obvious.
** Confirmed.
* Marcus. If he finds out the truth about the above.
* Ceasar. Because...damn.
* Spartacus. The man has a very good track record when it comes to vengeance.
* Nasir. But don't count the rookie out just yet.

[[WMG: Laeta and Sybil are pregnant]]
With Spartacus' and Gannicus' children, respectively.

[[WMG: The whole thing is just another historical recreation by the {{Transhuman}} [[AGodAmI Olympian Gods]] from ''Literature/{{Illium}}'']]
* The whole TrojanWar thing just turned into too much of a debacle, and Hephaestus decided that for their next entertainment they would aim a little lower (and pick a historical event that did not have so much active involvement from the gods themselves). So this time they setup the Third Servile War. As an added bonus, the war was less thoroughly documented and there was more room to play with the characters and their individual lives, rather than trying to keep the whole thing consistent with a piece of literature like ''Literature/TheIliad''. They might have even used Mars as the location again, which would account for why Italy looks so uncharacteristically bleak.
