- Fluellen is PISSED, killing pages violates chivalrous code of battle / agrees with Harry’s decision to kill French prisoner and compares Harry to Alexanderthe Great- Harry appears with duke of Bourbon as prisoner / he says he is angrier thanever and repeats the order to kill French prisoner’s- Montjoy reappears (now humbled): king of France ask that the French be allowed to go safely into the battlefield to retrieve and bury their dead / Henry demands to know who won / Montjoy says they have, and Harry praises God- Harry sees Michael Williams / as a joke: gives Williams’ glove to Fluellen and tells him to wear it publicly, saying that it came from a noble Frenchman and whoever attacks Flu over is must be a traitor to the English / Harry follows to see the fun- Williams sees Flu, thinks Flu is who he quarreled with, so he strikes Flu, Flu thinks Williams is a French traitor so he has him arrested
- Harry arrives innocently asking what all the fuss is…and then reveals that Williams’ true quarrel is with Harry himself- Williams said he can’t be responsible for a quarrel with a king because the king disguised himself / Harry enjoyed his joke and approving of Williams’ courage, he rewards him by filling his glove with coins- Exeter and a herald come back to report casualties: 10,000 French soldiers dead, 29 English men dead- recognizing their extraordinary good luck, the Englishmen give praise to God / Harry orders men to proceed to the captured village but without any braggingAct 5- CHORUS: Harry goes back to Calais in France and then back to England; women and children are super happy to have men back and everyone is happy to see Harry; people flock to Harry to celebrate but he is humble and forbids a triumphal procession to celebrate his victory- Harry goes back to France (chorus order audience to turn their imagination to France, with the understanding that some time has passed)- Fluellen and Gower speaking at an English base in France: Gower wants to know why Flu is still wearing a leek in his hat (St. Davy’s was the previous day, patron saint of Wales, March 1, leek is sign of patriotism)- Flu says the day before Pistol sent him bread and salt suggesting he eat hisleek, so when Pistol appears Flu beats him with his cudgel until Pistol agrees to: Pistol must eat the leek that Flu has had in his hat- Pistol eats it and Flu gives him some $ to ease pain of cudgel wounds- After Flu leaves, Pistol vows revenge (but Gower says its Pistol’s fault for making fun of Flu and for underestimating him just because he speaks with afunny Welsh accent)- When alone, Pistol gets serious: his wife (hostess) died of a venereal disease and he no longer has a home; he decides to be a pimp and thief- PALACE AT FRANCE: Harry meets with Charles VI and his queen Isabel; the goal is to negotiate a lasting peace between France and England- despite his victory, Harry is going to let Charles keep the throne but he demands: he gets to marry his distant cousin, Catherine, that way Harry and his heirs will inherit France as well as England
