Gaius Claudius Glaber is dead. Many months have passed since his defeat, and the rebel army, led by Spartacus and his generals Crixus, Gannicus and Agron, continue to amass victories over Rome. With the rebel numbers swelling to thousands of freed slaves, Spartacus is more determined than ever to bring down the entire Roman Republic. Following Ashur’s death, Naevia and Crixus fight as one. Together, the rebels engage in one bloody skirmish after another and prepare for the inevitable: a full out war with Rome. The Roman Senate turns to Marcus Crassus, a wealthy, strategic politician, for aid. He respects his opponent and refuses to make the same mistakes Glaber and his predecessors have. With a young and fiercely competitive Julius Caesar as an ally, Crassus is determined to crush Spartacus and his rebellion.
The epic conclusion of a legendary journey, Spartacus: War of the Damned will unleash a battle unlike anything ever seen before.

I was a big fan of the series Rome, and I feel like if Rome had the commitment, resource wise, to go four reasons that would have wrapped up nicely as this one did. A part of me almost feels like it could have gone one more season... but I also fear that could have been a tipping point because this was satisfactory all the way through.
"Spartacus: War of the Damned" picks up where season two left off. It has been about one year since the beginning of the slave rebellion initiated by the gladiators and slaves who overthrew the House of Batiatus. As the rebellion swells, Spartacus, Crixus, Agron, and Gannicus agree they must find a larger base for their band of slaves. In Rome, the senate desperately names Marcus Crassus leader of the Army against Spartacus. Crassus enlists Gaius Julius Caesar into his army, along with Crassus' repulsive son, Tiberius.
After Spartacus and his men take their city, they seek assistance from a gang of local pirates. While meeting these pirates outside city walls, Tiberius leads an attack against the rebels but fails to hold his ranks. Once rejoined with his father's army, Crassus commands a display of decimation for Tiberius and his men. The slyness of Marcus Crassus begins to be revealed as he slips Caesar into the slave city as a spy pretended to be one of the rebels. Caesar causes upset among the slaves, driving Crixus and Spartacus to quarrels over their purposes.
Once the city falls at Crassus' hand, the rebel army becomes trapped in a snowy ridge; they begin to freeze and starve. The rift between Spartacus and Crixus grows. Spartacus devises a plan to lead his army over the snowy ridge. Once escaped, the rebel army splits between Spartacus and Crixus.
As far as overviewing the season, I have elected to stop here because the final 2-3 episodes wrap up the entire series--well worth the watch. What I found most interesting about season 3 is the ability of the writers to truly expose the depth of the characters; those you may have previously thought you hated now become those you love, and vice versa. This is a show that stays in the mind long after it's over because it is hard to definitively point to "what is right" and "what is wrong." I also thought some of the battle ploys used by each army were genius, and surprises are plenty.
