The Tempest - Episode 5 - Rough Magic
King Alonso grows increasingly despondent over the loss of his son, giving Antonia and Sebastian confidence that they will soon take power. They stumble upon a sumptuous feast presented by mysterious beings and waste no time gorging themselves before Ariel appears as a harpy and chastises Alonso, Sebastian and Antonia for their sinful acts, past and present. Elsewhere, Caliban encourages Stephano to carry out the murder of Prospero, which he vows to do until Trinculo stumbles upon the clothing and finery that Prospero and Ariel have laid as a trap to distract them. Caliban urges them to ignore the rich garments but Trinculo and Stephano get carried away with the luxury of the robes, gathering them greedily until Prospero unleashes his supernatural hounds to attack the conspirators and chase them into a frenzy. He revels in their misery and urges his dogs on in the attack but Ariel convinces him to ease his vengeance. At last, Prospero softens and vows to give up his magical powers once he performs his final act.
