- At a bawdy pub, prostitutes flirt with Viola, who is still dressed as Thomas.
- Fennyman gives the actors a toast, and they celebrate with lots of drinking.
- When Henslowe asks Will how the play ends, Will says he doesn't know.
- Henslowe says he better find out, or he'll send him back to Stratford to his wife.
- His wife. Gasp! Viola glares at him and skedaddles from the pub.
- Before Will can chase her, a man enters the pub and tells them all that Kit Marlowe is dead. Stabbed to death in a tavern.
- Will feels like he is responsible for Marlowe's death.
- He staggers into the street and falls into a puddle. "God, forgive me," he whispers to the puddle.
- Time for a prayer montage. Didn't think a prayer montage was a thing? It is now.
