During the last attempt to capture Becket in the cathedral at Canterbury, a scuffle ensued and Becket received a blow to the head which escalated the violent nature of the scuffle. Becket died later that day. While opinions about Beckett and his motivation were split, his public admiration soon won over the hearts of his detractors and he accomplished in his death what he had been unable to accomplish in life. Becket became a martyr almost instantly and Henry lost the main argument that had existed between the two men. Henry would perform a public penance, and would negotiate a compromise with the Pope which would allow for a reconciliation between the church and the crown.

Macbeth orders the killing of everyone in Macduff's castle and when Macduff gets the news, he is stricken with grief. He pulls his hat over his eyes so no one can see him weep. When Malcolm sees this he says, "Dispute it like a man" (Act IV Scene iii, Line 220) Malcolm is telling Macduff that real men don’t cry and that he need to keep his emotions in check. Malcolm doesn’t want to see Macduff cry over his family, he wants to see Macduff take his revenge out on Macbeth.

Ah, sirs, consider, he that set you on to do this deed will hate you for the deed” (Act I, scene iv). By mentioning God, Clarence makes the murderers weigh the consequences of his murder.

Henry’s temper is hard for him to control because he is sometimes faced with situations when he cannot distinguish between King Henry and friend Henry. This duality, paired with the duality that is being a king is an obvious cause for confusion and rage. Henry had such a strong bond with his old friends, that when his new friends were so quick to betray him he was deeply hurt. Another time Henry exhibits incomplete control of his temper is during the battle of Agincourt. Throughout the battle, Henry’s soldiers have taken many French soldiers prisoner and seem to have the advantage.
