The next day, Lucretia is in the market when she spots Gannicus, who is Ilithyia and Lucretia's relationship is also going in some interesting.
Spartacus hadn't left her thoughts since the fight in the market and Gaius had been cold. He paid her no mind, ignoring her in every way, claiming busy thoughts. Yet, he still wouldn't allow her to return to Rome. She knew if she could rid herself of thoughts of Spartacus and position herself next to Varinius, with her father's blessing, her and her child would be on their way to Rome at the close of the games. Ilithyia's dreams of Spartacus had increased in frequency since the incident in the market.
She couldn't close her eyes without seeing him, or look around without colliding with his memory. Ilithyia saw him in the ludus training, sweat clinging to his skin and flying off in arcs as his sword crashed loudly against shield. She saw him in the arena fighting, sandals soaked in blood, skin and hair matted with sand. She saw him standing in front of her while she took a knife to his chest, dragging the sharp metal against his skin. Ilithyia had been so pleased to see the bright red line appear in its wake.
She wanted to fault him, show he was not immortal and he bled like every slave. As she'd driven the sword through the belly of that Gaul she imagined it was Spartacus.
She imagined killing him; the man that ruined her, the man who wouldn't stay a second from her thoughts, the man who gave life to the child that was growing inside of her. Ilithyia imagined that it was Spartacus' body that had been dragged away as her guests cheered. Killing that slave had presented no problem and the thought of leaving her husband did nothing to affect her demeanor. He'd been rough and cross with her since he'd found out about Licinia.
Even his happiness about the child was tempered by her stained hands. Ilithyia wasn't the girl who so long ago had loved him deeply. He did not know it yet, but she wished for nothing more than freedom from his dominion. Ilithyia had steeled herself against overly sentimental thoughts and she would not be swayed from this path. Grin upon face, Ilithyia kept her eyes on all in attendance. She'd devised a plan to get back to Rome that didn't involve Gaius defeating Spartacus.

A feat that was proving more difficult than anyone had imagined. Spartacus had been underestimated by Gaius on too many occasions and now he underestimated her. Grave mistakes she would see him pay dearly for. Ilithyia planned on showing Gaius exactly how the game was supposed to be played.
She grabbed a drink from a nearby table and let her eyes linger around the room. The party was a smashing success, the capture of the prisoners had everyone in light spirits even if Spartacus wasn't among them. Ilithyia knew she just had to wait for the right moment to get Varinius alone and she would be able to sway him to her cause. Lucretia parting her legs and bedding her father had not been a part of the plan but she couldn't argue with the results.
Varinius had been swayed by simple access to Ilithyia's body and her father by access to Lucretia's.
SPARTACUS: VENGEANCE 2.07 ‘Sacramentum’
She was to be married to Varinius and all ties to her husband dissolved. Ties including the life of her child. Through some means Gaius had found out about her plan to terminate her pregnancy. Instinctively, she'd been scared to find him with the vile but she knew she couldn't turn back.

Yet, it gave her pause how easily Lucretia had talked her out of doing her part to get back to Rome; leaving no further trace of the rebel slave Spartacus within her.
