  • Belarius, Guiderius, and Arviragus discuss the fight with the Romans. They disagree about what they should do about it.
  • Always afraid he will be recognized by somebody from the court, Belarius wants to lie low.
  • But Guiderius and Arviragus think that's cowardly; they want to help Cymbeline's forces fight.
  • It's two against one. Since the boys insist on fighting, Belarius finally agrees. He figures he'll have changed in appearance enough, anyway.
  • The three men set off to fight for Britain.
