I'm killing both of you snakes, coming at me in my own house!
It's too late now for your help Ismene!
I helped bury Polynices!
"No pride on earth is free of the curse of heaven. "
The sentry comes in with Antigone and announces she's the one who has buried Polynices. She doesn't regret her actions and proclaims Creon is a weak king. She says that they're others that reject Creon but keep quiet.
Creon has Ismene brought in and she now claims to have helped Antigone with burying Polynices. Antigone doesn't want her lies and says Ismene has no right to share the blame. Ismene argues that if Creon kills Antigone, Creon's son Haemon who is in love with Antigone would be devastated. Creon has the sisters locked up to await their death.
The chorus warns of Zeus' wrath and how Creon and his family is cursed. Creon's pride may be his downfall.
