Act 5 of Julius Caesar
Antony, The posture of your blows are yet unknown. But for your words, they rob the Hybla bees And leave them honeyless.
Brutus and Cassius and Antony and Octavius come together to talk before they battle. Both groups make puns and jokes directed at each other. Once Antony and Octavius leave, Brutus and Cassius say their final goodbyes.
Cassius' Army and Antony's Army begin to fight. As they are fighting Cassius sees that his Army is losing. Cassius talks about how the eagles have left and the ravens, crows, and kites are come. This is considered a bad omen and Cassius starts to have doubts.
Cassius sent Titinius to their tents and asks his servant Pindarus to watch and see if Titinius was captured. Pindarus sees Titinius get grabbed and tells Cassius. Cassius then realizes that they have completely lost and tells Pindarus that he is now free and to stab him. Pindarus then follows through with Cassius' wish and kills him.
This is a man.
This was the noblest Roman of them all.
Pindarus was wrong and Titinius was not captured but instead he was celebrating with Brutus' Army because they had beat Octavius' army. Titinius comes back and see Cassius dead and thinks it is his fault so he kills himself with the same knife. Brutus then shows up and says that he will continue to fight and give his friend Cassius a proper funeral.
Brutus' army fails to defeat Octavius and Antony's army. He asks two people to hold his sword while he runs on it but they refuse. Strato finally agrees but makes Brutus hold his hand. Before Brutus dies he says he is killing himself more willingly than he killed Caesar. Brutus then dies.
Octavius and Antony find Brutus' body. Antony says that Brutus was the most noble man in Rome and he was the only conspirator that killed Caesar for the good for Rome. Octavius said that Brutus will be given a proper burial and will be kept in his tent overnight. Octavius and Antony then leave to celebrate their victory.
