Henry V - Episode 4 - Harry LeRoy
Outside the French village of Corbie, Gower and Fluellen meet a fiery Pistol, who asks Fluellen to beg leniency from Exeter on behalf of Bardolph, who has been sentenced to death for stealing from a church. Fluellen refuses and Pistol storms off, enraged. King Henry arrives to learn that the English have kept control of a strategically valuable bridge. He also learns of the death of his old friend Bardolph, and promises that all such offenders will get the same punishment. Soon after, a French Ambassador, Montjoy, arrives to deliver a warning to King Henry from the King of France: Turn back now or die. Henry responds that he will march on, and if they try to stop him, he’ll soak the ground with French blood. Later that night, in the French camp outside Agincourt, Constable, Bourbon and Orleans tease the Dauphin about his love for his horse, and joke about him after he leaves. A messenger arrives to tell them the English are lurking very near their tents, but they shrug off the threat, confident of their strength and numbers. Only Bourbon expresses any sense of foreboding. The Chorus describes Henry visiting his soldiers at their tents and lookouts, boosting their morale. Later, as he sits with his thoughts, feeling optimistic about what lies ahead, Henry is surprised by the sudden appearance of Pistol.
