  • Now the whole crew has arrived at the temple: Pericles, his followers, Lysimachus, Helicanus, and Marina.
  • Pericles strolls up to the altar and starts telling his story.
  • Like we said, Thaisa has been chilling at the temple, and when she sees Pericles, she's all, "OMG. I'myour wife. It's a good thing I haven't been with any other men this whole time. Now we can get back together."
  • Then she passes out, but she wakes up soon after.
  • Another joyous family reunion.
  • Just as everyone's getting reunited, Pericles declares that he and Thaisa are going to move to Pentapolisand rule Simonides's kingdom. (Apparently, King Simonides has died.)
  • Then Pericles says that Marina and Lysimachus can have his old kingdom in Tyre as a wedding gift.
  • And they all live happily ever after.
  • (Oh, except for Dionyza and Cleon. Gower comes back out onstage and tells us that their people burned theirpalace to the ground when they found out what they did to Pericles and Marina.)
