Camillo, I order you to poison Polixenes
Yes, King Leontes, but I will not hurt Hermione
Leontes has ordered me to poison you but I can't!
Leontes betraying me, his best friend, is like Judas' betrayal of Jesus!
You are coming with me back to Bohemia, it is not safe for you here Polixenes.
Camillo enters and comments on how great it is that Hermione convinced Polixenes to stay in Sicily which Leontes interprets as everyone in the castle knowing about them. When Leontes insists Hermione has been unfaithful, Camillo pretends to believe him and agrees to poison Polixenes.
After alot of talking and ranting,Camillo finally tells Polixenes that Leontes thinks him and Hermione are together. Camillo also confesses that he has been ordered to kill Polixenes and urges him to go before Leontes does something crazier. Polixenes is shocked and confused of how he can do such thing.
Polixenes convinces Camillo to help him escape back to Bohemia. Camillo and Polixenes decide to not tell Hermione they are escaping and that Leontes is going mad. They run off to Leontes ship which is docked nearby.
