Olivia C, Zach J, and Ejona B. Group F

Summary:

Oberon discovers Puck gave the love potion to Lysander rather than Demetrius. Oberon tells Puck to give Lysander a potion that will reverse the effects of the love potion. Demetrius and Lysander are trying to kill each other so Puck has to try to keep them away from each other long enough to give Lysander the potion.

"And back to Athens shall the lovers wend with league whose date till death shall never end."

This is the most important quote because it is saying that once the spell is reversed everything will go back to normal.
