Major gratitude to Starz for their generosity! While we have a week to wait for the premiere of Spartacus: Vengeance to air on the pay-cable network, Starz posted the first episode of the returning gladiator-drama on their website and we have it here for you to watch in all of its bloody glory.

Spartacus: Vengeance makes its official premiere on Starz on January 27th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. The one-hour drama stars Liam McIntyre as the title character as he attempts to lead the recently freed slaves following the exodus from the House of Batiatus at the end of Blood and Sand. The season premiere, titled “Fugitivus” has Spartacus adjusting to leadership, while Claudius Glaber is faced with the task of putting a stop to the growing rebellion.

Below is the episode in its entirety. If you’re familiar with the show, then you already know it doesn’t shy away from adult content (including nudity) and graphic violence. If you’re new to the show, consider yourself warned...
