This scene is when Robespierre presents his new list of anti-revolutionist but would not agree to give the names on the list. This made the other members of the council anxious and angry. -Why did the other members of the council feel threaten by Robespierre's new list?
The angered council members went to arrest Robespierre and found him with a broken jaw from attempted suicide. They also found two other people with him who had successfully killed themselves. They arrested him and threw him in jail to await his execution. -Why would Robespierre try to commit suicide instead of waiting for a trail?
