Lucentio pleads for his father's forgiveness, explaining the situation to him and assuring him of Tranio's innocence in the matter. Though still fuming, Vincentio grants his approval of Lucentio and Bianca's union and assures Baptista: "Fear not, [...] we will content you." (5.1: 127) The scene ends with Kate bantering with Petruchio and granting him a reluctant kiss.
