Scene 1
Summary
In act 5, Lucentio and Biondello head to the wedding of Bianca and Lucentio as they are already late. Vincentio comes to visit his son Lucentio. Upon arriving he meets the Merchant (who is acting as Vincetio). The Merchant tells Vincentio that he, himself, is the father of Lucentio. The plot is exposed and Lucentio and Bianca are happily married. Baptista is not angry and in the last scene we see if Kate may or may not have been "tamed."
