Corvino calls Celia, who weeps in another room. Corvino tries to convince Celia he isn't jealous, and that he'll prove how much he trusts her. He tells her to put on her best dress and jewels, and prepare to travel with him to Volpone's house.
Like so many other characters, Corvino adopts a role, disguising his true nature to get Celia to do what he wants. The audience has already seen Corvino's corrupted morality—he is jealous, violent, and controlling. Now, he tells Celia the outburst was a test. He speaks kindly to her, manipulating her into joining him at Volpone's house.
