Excited as we are for 'Spartacus: War of the Damned' to bring the acclaimed Starz series to a rousing conclusion beginning this Friday, January 25, our anticipation suffers from one notable challenge not previously faced with the other seasons, even prequel mini-series 'Gods of the Arena.' For as much as we've seen of new villains Marcus Crassus (Simon Merrells) and Julius Caesar (Todd Lasance), we've yet to meet them within the actual series! Check out a new sneak peek from 'Spartacus: War of the Damned' inside to get your first look at new villain Marcus Crassus in action!

Worried that 'Spartacus: War of the Damned' won't feel as familiar with now-thousands of Spartacus' followers going up against a Roman enemy we've never met before? Fear not! Starz has released yet another official clip from Friday's premiere episode "Enemies of Rome," which serves as a perfect introduction to the methodical calculation of new villain Marcus Crassus.

In the clip below, Crassus puts the glory of Rome before his own military position in the battle to wipe out Spartacus, to the astonishment of his own son Tiberius (Christian Antidormi). Could Crassus have a larger plan in mind when it comes to defeating Spartacus? Will his even temper prove an advantage even Spartacus fails to anticipate?

Check out the latest clip from 'Spartacus: War of the Damned' below, and tell us in the comments if you'll tune in to this Friday's premiere on Starz!
