  • Edgar pretends to take Gloucester to the cliff, telling him that they are going up steep ground and that they can hear the sea. Gloucester can no longer bear his suffering and intends to commit suicide. He falls to the ground, fainting.
  • AAAHHHHHH!
  • Lear, wandering across the plain, stumbles upon Edgar and Gloucester. Cordelia’s people enter seeking King Lear. Relieved to find him at last, they try to take him into custody to bring him to Cordelia. When Lear runs away, Cordelia’s men follow him.

  • Oswald comes across Edgar and Gloucester on the plain. He does not recognize Edgar, but he plans to kill Gloucester and collect the reward from Regan. Edgar defends Gloucester and kills Oswald with a cudgel. As he dies, Oswald entrusts Edgar with his letters.
  • Give the letters which thou find'st about me to Edmnd earl of Gloucester
  • Edgar reads with interest the letter that Oswald carries to Edmund. In the letter, Goneril urges Edmund to kill Albany if he gets the opportunity, so that Edmund and Goneril can be together.

  • WHAT THE $%#@
