It's fairly poignant that, in the midst of all this self-interest and treachery, the final thing that breaks Edward's heart is his understanding of his complicity in his brother's death. He fears God's wrath, but he also seems truly hurt and disappointed in himself about what he's done to upset the Christian notion of justice.

Gray understands that Margaret's curse was not just the random anger of an old lady – she expects vengeance against these men because they stood by while her son was murdered. It seems Gray accepts the justice of his plight.

Justice is served as Hastings gets a taste of his own medicine. He came out of prison seeking revenge against his accusers and then gloated over their deaths, only to discover while they were being killed that he was being condemned. Hastings's dying thoughts are vengeful. He condemns Richard, and rather than lamenting Richard's evil or being sorry for his own gloating over the murders at Pomfret, Hastings takes some comfort in knowing that after his murder more murders will follow. This contrasts with Buckingham's penitent approach, though of course Buckingham had many worse crimes to account for than Hastings, and it seems like Hastings's murder is generally a more senseless one.
