Henry IV, Part 2 | Act 5, Scene 4 | Summary



On a London street, Mistress Quickly and Doll Tearsheet have been arrested on suspicion of murder of a man in the tavern. Doll Tearsheet claims she's pregnant, which would mean she can't be executed until after her child is born. They leave with the Beadle.


All of Prince Hal's old compatriots are being rounded up for their misdeeds. This scene shows the wrapping up of the old guard, an illustration of Henry's break with his lawless and rowdy past.
