  • Meanwhile, Talbot is back at war. He comes to the French town of Bordeaux and demands surrender.
  • Bordeaux says it will fight back, and on top of that, ten thousand French warriors have promised to shoot at no one but Talbot. Good times.
  • The spokesman for the French says he is pretty impressed with Talbot's courage, but Talbot will be dead within an hour.
  • Talbot admits to himself, not to the herald, that things do look pretty bad for the English. But he rallies the troops and says they can fight with courage.
