Where are you in the play? He tells her about his encounter with the men on the road and the fact that he has killed someone, but he does not connect, early in the story, that this man was the former king of Thebes. Near the end, when he puts two and two together, and he realizes that he has killed his biological father when the roads crossed, she reacts by leaving the stage and later killing herself.
