Scene 10

Scene 10

  • Back at Viola's house, Lord Wessex is wondering where Viola is.
  • She dashes into the room wearing a gorgeous dress… and her mustache.
  • Before Wessex notices, the nurse rips the fake 'stache from her face.
  • And Wessex wipes the smile from her face when he tells her that her father sold her to him. She is to be his bride, even though she does not love him.
  • Not only that, but he has plantations in Virginia, so they'll ship off there after the wedding. Only for three or four years.
  • He gives her a really awkward kiss and she slaps him.
  • Because Lord Wessex is a Lord, the Queen wants to inspect his new bride, so she will have to meet the Queen.
  • Viola's regretfully writes a letter to Will, telling him to forget her. Her tears are going to run the ink.
