ARLT 101g Masters of Power: 10 Ancient Lives Scenes from HBO’s Rome (final episode 06) Below are some of the scenes we saw from the final episode of the 2006 Rome series. 1.

Lucius Vorenus and his wife enjoy marital bliss and discuss the marriage of their teenage daughter to a wealthy old senator. She wants to “marry for love.” 3.

JC’s wife Calpurnia has ominous dreams. 6.
