I loved it with the great love and as of this moment "Rome" is my favourite TV show ever made and shares this title with HBO "The Wire". YAY to HBO for making these series and many other great ones too. I loved everything about this episode, and I loved the ending. It was not something depressing for me at all, but rather something very uplifting.
( Episode in which Pullo and Vorenus were amazing or So many fabulous things I loved in this episode. In screencaps )
