Steven DeKnight: We actually went down a path, unfortunately we didn’t have enough room to put it in, where Titus tells Batiatus before he dies he’s going to free Oenomaus and leave everything to him. Leave the ludus to him.
Lucy Lawless: To – who? To Oenomaus? Ooooooh.
DeKnight: And then when Titus dies, we were gonna have a scene where Batiatus calls Oenomaus up, and we think he’s going to tell Oenomaus he’s been freed, instead he says “My father thought the world of you, and I’m keeping you on as Doctore.” And never tells him.
Lucy: Ohhh, that’s so YOU. That’s really- ah, the pain.
