A more exciting and interesting episode. Full of political intrigue and commentary on the judicial system of the period. Our protagonist survives the ordeal by beast and with the help of his blind servant girl is freed with the real murderer having been identified. As Mount Vesuvius erupts and ash is flung into the air, the blind servant girl has a distinct advantage in terms of mobility and leads the protagonist through the streets of Pompeii to find the girl of his dreams. The episode ends with the three of them pledging to stay together and survive, or die together.
