Adriana finds Antipholus (of Syracuse) with his sword drawn and orders that he and Dromio be bound. The Syracusans escape into a nearby priory. The Abbess of the priory refuses to make them come out. The Duke enters, bringing Egeon to execution. Adriana begs the Duke to remove Antipholus from the priory. When Antipholus and Dromio (of Ephesus) enter, having escaped from Dr. Pinch, the Duke listens to conflicting accounts of what Antipholus and Dromio have done. Egeon says that Antipholus is his son, but Antipholus denies knowing him. The Abbess enters with Antipholus and Dromio (of Syracuse). The day’s confusions are explained when the two sets of twins are seen side by side. Antipholus (of Syracuse) declares again his love for Luciana. The Abbess recognizes Egeon as her lost husband and the twin Antipholuses as her lost sons.
