This is a pastoral comedy so things do work out in the end. As with Shakespeare's pastoral comedies there comes a concord, a sort of communal coming together that rises from the discord of much of the play. Perhaps the most telling line of the last act is when Theseus asks, "How shall we find the concord of this discord?" (5.1.60). That is exactly what has happened in the play itself, namely there has been a resolution to the discord of the lovers in the initial scenes, which by the end has turned into concord..
