In this episode we look at Augustus’s indecision on crossing the Rhine. While Marcus rectified his mistake by pushing the Sicambri back across the Rhine, Augustus starts to build up Gaul. For the next 3 years he will stay in Gaul and the Rhine stays on his mind. While Augustus pauses before making the leap, his stepsons Tiberius and Drusus make a name for themselves clearing the Alps of enemy tribes. Drusus (young, dashing, and highly charismatic) sees Germany as his Gallic campaign to prove himself worthy. Meanwhile his older brother is not a fan. The question is who will convince the Emperor?
