Fulmen's head is still in its spot on the kitchen floor, looking distinctly grayish. I understand that housekeeping traditionally suffers when the woman of the house isn't around, but Vorenus is taking the new bachelor thing a little far, methinks. Pullo finds the man himself still sacked out in bed, looking in a not much better state than Fulmen, albeit rather taller. Pullo tries to jolly Vorenus up for a walk in the country, calling him "brother" and saying that maybe it's time to shave off their mourning beards and get on with their lives. He sets Vorenus's bowl on the bed, and Vorenus half-agrees with Pullo. "You should go," he says. Pullo doesn't want to abandon his friend, and tells Vorenus he can't sit there for the rest of his life. Vorenus gets pissy: "I have caused the death of my wife. I have caused the death of my children. I have caused the death of Caesar. What would you have me do now? Run a butcher shop?" Why not? You're on a roll. Oh, and don't forget that the kids are in hell because you damned them and never took it back. That's important to remember, too. Pullo retreats for now, grumping back, "Eat your damn porridge." Eirene will be glad to hear they talked.
At the house of Atia (or, as I'm going to continue calling her until The O.C. is off the air, Julii Cooper), the lady of the house is airing the first of several batches of insecurities that will drive her behavior this week. She's asking Mark Antony -- who's busy getting dressed for the day -- about Cleopatra. He dismissively says that he barely met her when he was in Egypt (which makes sense; he was barely in that episode), and that he wasn't impressed at the time. Julii Cooper points out that Cleopatra must have impressed Caesar, and Antony scoffs that Cleopatra's being a queen probably had something to do with that. "Caesar would have fucked Medusa if she'd worn a crown," Antony cracks. Julii Cooper still wants to make sure that Antony doesn't do the same, and he amiably agrees to remember. Not to refrain, of course, but to remember. As he brushes past her, Julii Cooper quietly murmurs, "I love you," but gets no response. Hmm.
Antony's barely out the front door of the compound when Octavian catches up to him. The kid wants to know when he can expect to receive his inheritance from Caesar's estate. Antony's quite pleasant about blowing Octavian off, but we can tell that it's clearly not the first time. He breezily promises to "see to it" as he rides off in a sedan chair. Octavian's left standing in the street, wondering how much more of his money Mark Antony's going to spend today.
