"I came, I saw, I conquered" -Julius Ceasar

The Great Return Act 1

People are gathering in the center of town celebrating Julius's great return, after defeating his great battle against Pompey. At the gathering, Ceasar is very superstitious and then a soothsayer warns Julius of the Ides of March. Caesar is then offered the crown three times and refuses each time, even though the people are cheering for him to accept. At the same time, Cassius is trying to convince Brutus that Caesar is to ambitious and should be killed before being allowed to rule the Roman Empire.

On the other hand, Calphurinia had a horrible dream that something terrible is going to happen to Ceasar, so she begs him to stay home and not go out. Then Decius tells them that they misinterpreted the dream, so Ceasar finally agrees to go to the senate despite Calphurinia's suggestion. Meanwhile, Artemidorus stands by waiting for Ceasar to give him the letter that tells his what everyone is planning on doing.

The final Farewell Act 5

The battle is about ready to begin. First Octavius, Antony, Cassius, and Brutus meet on the battlefield to talk, but they cannot and will not cooperate. Brutus and Cassius say their farewells and part. It appears that Brutus has been defeated. Pindarus tells Cassius that Brutus has been taken and Antony has defeated him. Cassius kills himself and then after seeing Cassius's body, Titinius kills himself. Later Brutus says that Caesar's spirit "walks abroad" so Caesar is making sure his killers will die. By the end, Brutus and Cassius' armies have been overwhelmed and Antony and Octavius are fast moving in on Brutus. Brutus asks Strato to kill him and he agrees. Once Antony and Octavius find the body they say that Brutus was the only noble person among the conspirators.
