The final season of Spartacus — slugged with the subtitle War of the Damned — doesn’t premiere until this Friday, Jan. 25, at 9 p.m. on Starz, but EW has a sneak peek of the first episode for you.
In the clip, we find Spartacus (Liam McIntyre) and Gannicus (Dustin Clare) having a meeting of the minds, but what’s really going down is that Spartacus is trying to convince Gannicus to take a leadership role in the gladiators’ fight against the ruling Romans. “A greater number, still, would follow you in battle,” Spartacus tells Gannicus, who seems extremely apprehensive at the proposition. Spartacus ends the clip by assuring Gannicus he isn’t leading the fight for vanity or deification: “Victory against the Romans is my only concern.” Click through to watch.
