Help Me if Thou art a Gentleman!
'T is burnt; and so is all the meat.
And here I'll fling the pillow, And with the clamor keep her still awake!
In this scene, Kate and Petruchio are travelling from the wedding to Petruchio's castle. It is raining and dark when Kate falls off her horse and into the mud. Earlier in the story Kate accuses Petruchio of not being a gentleman and as he rides away her, that statement is fully confirmed. The red color of her eyes represents her anger in this moment.
In this scenes, Kate and Petruchio have arrived back at his castle wet and hungry. His servants are waiting on him, feeling pity for Kate as Petruchio refuses to let her eat, while pretending it is for her own good. The ripped tablecloth and bare furnishings represent how little he cares about Kate, not even to have had his servant clean his castle for her arrival.
In this scene, Petruchio is fulfilling his plot to torment Kate until she stops being insubordinate and behaves. He is doing this by not allowing her to eat or sleep.
