0:21:36: More loveplay and shots of the persons involved.
0:21:58: Again. In slow-motion. Beautiful.

0:33:57: A longer discussion between Ilithyia and Senator Albinius. He thinks that she was interested in Gaius right from the start while she claims otherwise.
Albinius: "Well, the fault stands equally shared, for succumbing to your teary-eyed pleas in defense of misplaced affections."
Ilithyia: "Years have proven them so."
Extended scene with alternate material
0:36:59: Cossutius says something about the maltreated companion of Spartacus and then goes off with his subordinates. Seppia doesn't seem to think too highly of him.

The extended version runs 3,2 sec. longer
0:42:15: More simulated loveplay in the extended version once more.
