Palamon hides in a woodland where he comes upon Arcite bemoaning his love for Emily. The two former friends engage in deadly battle.
Theseus spares them and arranges for a great tournament. Palamon prays to Venus to grant him Emily and the goddess agrees.
Arcite prays to Mars for victory, and Mars agree. Wise old Saturn finds a way to satisfy both Mars and Venus.
Theseus proposes the marriage of Emily and Palamon, which brings final peace between Thebes and Athens. They live in perfect love, with never a harsh word between them.
