In this scene, we see Medea after she has acted out her revenge. She sits on the roof inside of her chariot, which is borne by dragons. She has no remorse, and no other thoughts of what she's done. Medea is cold and powerful, unfeeling as Jason curses her for her actions...... she takes no responsibility and says the fault lies with their father's lust. She even refused to let him give them a proper burial and insists they be buried in the mountains. She does allow him one last glimpse before taking them away.
