Richard II Act 5, Scene 4 Summary

  • At Windsor Castle we bump into a guy named Exton.
  • Exton thinks he just heard King Henry say the following: "Have I no friend will rid me of this living fear?" But Exton's not sure he heard right, so he double checks with a servant, who says yep – Henry said that all right.
  • Exton points out that King Henry was looking right at him when he said this and decides he was secretly ordering him to kill Richard.
