Summary

As Volpone prepares, Mosca leads Bonario into the room and shows him where to hide.

Analysis

If the other characters are players in the ruse Mosca has created, he has become the director. Mosca, the "parasitic" servant, controls the outcomes of nearly everyone's lives: Volpone, Celia, Bonario, Corbaccio, etc. Clearly, Mosca has all the power, although he disguises it in his role as a lowly servant.
