Love's Labour's Lost - Episode 4 - Proceed Sweet Cupid
Nathaniel and Holofernes congratulate each other on their handling of Berowne’s letter and agree to use it as an example of bad writing. Back at Howard University’s Clark Hall, Berowne paces nervously, ruminating on his love for Rosaline. He hides when King Navarre enters, reading a love letter he wrote to the Princess out loud to himself. Navarre takes cover when Longaville enters and reads his own letter to Margaret, and Longaville hides when Dumaine enters to read the letter he’s writing to Maria. Soon, all four friends step forward to accuse each other of hypocrisy, with Berowne taking the lead in shaming the others. It all comes to a screeching halt when Jacquenetta enters with Berowne’s letter, which he desperately tries–and fails–to snatch back. With everything finally revealed, Berowne convinces his friends to abandon their vows and strive instead to be the best lovers they can be in winning the affections of the Princess and her friends.
