  • The Chorus troops out on stage one last time to deliver the Epilogue.
  • We're told that after Henry's victorious exploits in France, he and Catherine had a son (who became Henry VI). Unfortunately, Henry VI lost France and led England into bloody war.
  • The Chorus reminds us that Shakespeare has already portrayed these events in the plays Henry VI Part 1 and Henry VI Part 2. (What? Sometimes Shakespeare likes to give himself a shout-out.)
