Haemon then killed himself with his sword. Creon fled the cave unscathed, alongside the messenger.
The messenger told Eurydice about her son, Haemon's death, when he returned from the rock chamber. She left with no word and ended up killing her self moments after. The messenger went to check on her, curious why she wasn't grieving, only to find her dead. She had stabbed herself with a sword.
Creon and the messenger headed to the rock chamber, after they burned Polynices body, and found Haemon there, mourning for Antigone. Creon demanded that Haemon stepped away from the dead body. But, Haemon just gave his father an angry stare, for he was furious at Creon, for the cruelty he put on Antigone.
