On the plains of Philippi, Octavius and Antony discuss the situation. Octavius says the enemy is planning to attack, contrary to what Antony had suggested. Antony replies that they are just putting on a false show of courage.
I am just putting on a false show of courage.
OMG... My soldiers have run from the enemy.
Brutus sends instructions to his army, telling him to advance immediately against Octavius. The battle goes badly for Cassius's troops. Cassius angrily reports that his own soldiers have run from the enemy. Brutus appears to be having some success, but his soldiers have fallen to looting.
Well this is not going as planned.
Where are you?
On the battlefield, Brutus urges his men on. Cato is killed. Lucilius, claiming that he is Brutus in order to confuse the enemy, is captured. Antony's soldiers tell him they have captured Brutus, but when Antony asks where he is, Lucilius tells him that Brutus is safe and will never be taken alive.
I am safe and will never be taken alive.
Brutus and his soldiers, defeated in battle, stop to rest. Brutus makes it clear that he wishes to be killed. Clitus refuses, as does Dardanius. Then Brutus asks Volumnius, telling him that he has twice seen the ghost of Caesar and he knows his time to die has come. Volumnius also refuses. There are sounds of continuing battle and Clitus, Dardanius and Volumnius flee.
