How Titus Pullo Brought Down The Republic

How Titus Pullo Brought Down The Republic - There's a whole lot of blah blah blah about Caesar's return to Rome. Vorenus and Pullo hit the streets of Rome, where Vorenus finds his wife cradling a baby he knows isn't his. As for Pullo, he ends up in a huge brawl, getting his head bashed in for good measure. Eventually, Antony gathers his troops and heads to the Senate to try and figure out the whole Caesar's Return To Rome thing without further incident. But then the guy who smashed in Pullo's head earlier goes after him with a knife.
