Coriolanus - Act V

Coriolanus
Act V

Kill, kill, kill, kill, kill him!

I don't know if a 400-year-old play really needs spoiler alerts but consider yourself warned. Coriolanus certainly has his ups and downs throughout the play and as we near the end he is about to take his revenge on Rome. But as things proceeded I couldn't help feeling that it was going to end badly for him. Various Romans come to Coriolanus and try to dissuade him from ravaging Rome but he's not having it. Then his family tries and he finally relents. That doesn't sit well with his new allies and, just as I suspected, it doesn't end well for Coriolanus after all.
