King Lear Act 3, Scene 5

Cornwall hears the news of Gloucester's infidelity and tells Edmund a reward is available for turning in his father. With Edgar gone as well, Edmund is now essentially the Earl of Gloucester. It is ironic how Edmund and Cornwall converse about "loyalty," "trust," and "love" while betraying their families at every turn.
