    Summary

    Falstaff will arrive with a great bellow: Hal my boy! You incorrigible saint, up and walking. Let’s see how we can corrupt you today! and Hal will smirk. He never drinks as much sack as he seems to, so Falstaff is right without knowing. Falstaff jests about Hal's seemingly endless tolerance and Hal feels the power riding in his hands, the line of his neck, in the set of his face. This is one of the moments that make up for the stress of playing a role and the fear of his plan taking him too deep: the knowledge that every man and girl in the Boar’s looks to him.
     
    And the tide keeps coming in, and the lions are all dead.
     
    Hal drifts in and out of the Boar's Head.
