  • In the midst of the fighting, Warwick gets tired and needs to rest.
  • Edward, George, and Richard all join Warwick. It's clear that they're not doing well; Margaret's victory seems inevitable.
  • Then Richard tells Warwick that his brother died in battle. His dying words were: "Warwick, revenge! Brother, revenge my death!"
  • Warwick is livid at the news and promises that he will have revenge or death—whichever comes first.
  • The three brothers like the sound of that. They all join hands and promise to have courage.
