You're welcome, Barbara. Yeah, that title just came to me considering that Rome and The Borgias remind me so much of The Godfather and modern crime dramas and political dramas.

Are you ready to begin? We'll start after the opening credits.

Brutus and Cicero are at the Roman Senate meeting. Cicero isn't too happy about Caesar being in a position of ultimate power, and Brutus is just going along with it.

Ten years? I don't think Caesar intends to have term limits.

Brutus: "As you know, Caesar and I have had our disagreements."

Understatement of the millennium. That disagreement would make Shakespeare famous.

Caesar intends to be a benevolent dictator?

Wow, Servilia isn't looking too good. And she's not happy to see Atia.

Octavia is cutting herself. And Octavian went to bring her home.

What has Octavia done to herself? Is she doing penance?
