While there was no new Spartacus: War of the Damned episode last week, Starz is sure making up for it with this bloody new preview of epic proportions as our favorite rebel leader, Spartacus (Liam McIntyre), meets a certain Gaius Julius Caesar (Todd Lasance).

The new promo, called “Decimation,” is from the next upcoming episode, titled “War,” which shows a hypothetical meeting between two of history’s most famous names. (There are no sources that say that Caesar and Spartacus ever met, so Starz is having a field day throwing Julius Caesar into the lot and we just LOVE it).

Take a look below:

It is, of course, all you can expect from a Spartacus promo: It’s got blood, it’s got fights, it’s got violence aplenty (but no nudity in sight). But of course, the most interesting tidbit comes at the end and it makes us wonder: If you guys will recall, in the second episode, Marcus Crassus (Simon Merrells) refused to let Caesar cut his long blond locks back in the Roman fashion.

Guess the wily Marcus had this planned all along, right? He'd already planned for the charming and almost wild Caesar to infiltrate Spartacus and his band of merry rebels now encamped in the town of Sinuessa en Valle.

Are you excited about the upcoming Spartacus: War of the Damned episode to see how Spartacus and Caesar will "get along"?
