In Act 3 Scene 1, Beatrice is overwhelmed with the thought of people judging her proud and scornful ways. Beatrice addresses this revolution by agreeing to leave her past self behind and seal this newfound affection with Benedick. Beatrice’s view of rejecting a man who will rule her with an iron fist is quite independent.

The audience gets a dramatic view with a light comedic undertone; they are saying all these things about loving one another, because they think the other loves them.
