Oh. MY GOD. I just. I HAVE SO MANY FEELINGS about Crixus and Naevia. They are a perfect ship to me. I love the way he is with her. When she wanted to learn how to fight, he didn't go easy on her, and when she needed to fight for herself he understood that and even if it killed him he stood by her. It's just. SO BEAUTIFUL. /fangirling
It was never going to be an easy thing to step into Andy's shoes, but I really think Liam did a great job. I don't think he can match Andy's intensity, but he makes up for it in other ways. He was great.
There are no words for how much I loved Naevia this season. First season I could take or leave her, but Cynthia's Naevia? a;sogahog Her storyline deeply moved me and she quickly became my favorite female character on the show. ENDLESS LOVE FOR MY NEW WARRIOR QUEEN.
Okay. So. In season 1 of Spartacus I hated this chick. Her every move annoyed the crap out of me. Second season? a;soghaogih she was amazing. Honestly I kind of side-eyed at how suddenly badass they made her (lifelong body-slave suddenly holding her own against soldiers and barbarians? Um... I don't think so), but at the same time I just didn't care coz I enjoyed the character so much. That is a rare thing.
So waaaay back when, when I did all the Game of Thrones season 1 icons, I did a set of Conan Stevans as The Mountain only to find out there were so few pics that it really didn't merit posting. Then he did an episode of Spartacus: Vengeance, same thing. So I combined them. Woot woot.
So he's got two different looks this season - one where he's all scruffy, and one where he's clean-shaven. So I decided to split his icons. I'm also convinced that no one can play a villain like this guy because holy balls.
