What will happen in the new episodes: previews of the second episode

In the third and fourth episodes of Romulus, both directed by Enrico Maria Artale, Tito’s army continues to advance. Ilia, Yemos and the Ruminales retaliate by attacking a Sabine garrison hoping to catch it by surprise, but they end up in a trap. Just when all seems lost, a new contingent of Roman soldiers, led by Wiros, charges. Yemos will come out injured by the confrontation and Wiros, in order to save him, turns to the priestess Ersilia who offers to take him to the country of the Tusci where they can heal him. During the trip, however, a Sabine ambush ruins their plan. Wiros escapes with the body of Ersilia and Yemos with the intention of reaching their destination and rescuing his brother. Meanwhile, Tito discovers the truth about the identity of Servios, his best warrior.
