The gods will punish you if you don't bury Polynices and free Antigone!
I would never bury Polynices! Oh my life is at risk, let me do it then.
I'm going to kill you! How dare you do this?
Oh my lordy! Everyone's dead, the prophecy was true! Even my wife is dead.
I'm lonely because I was an arrogant king, now there's no one left to appreciate me.
Your life sucks because you were arrogant. Now you will be wise due to your losses.
A blind prophet named Tiresias tells Creon that if he doesn't properly bury Polynices, the gods will be mad at him. Creon rejects this idea and swears he would never do such a thing. Tiresias then proclaims that if he goes through with burying Antigone, the gods will punish him by killing his son. Scared by this prophecy he goes off to bury Polynices and free Antigone in order to please the gods.
A messenger tells us a story: Creon went over to free Antigone only to see that she had hung herself. Haemon racked with anger tried to kill Creon but ended up killing himself. Creon is broken and to make matters worse his wife and the queen Eurydice has taken her own life. Eurydice had proclaimed that Creon's pride killed their son.
Creon is broken and says he doesn't exist anymore as his whole world crumbled before him. He prays for death and says he's responsible for his wife and son's death. The chorus ends our story by remarking the proud will have a bad fate and wisdom is gained through loss.
