Act III, Scene VII

Regan jealously questions Edmund about Goneril, but he lies and denies he is having a love affair with her. Albany and Goneril arrive. Goneril, who is jealous of Regan just as Regan is jealous of her, secretly says she would rather lose the battle than see her sister win Edmund's love.

As they prepare to leave, Edgar arrives in another disguise, and speaks privately to Albany. He gives Albany the letter Oswald was carrying, and asks Albany to sound a trumpet after the battle is over, and call Edmund to a trial by combat, which Edgar will then take on. Albany, already suspicious, agrees to read the letter.

Edmund, temporarily left alone, ruminates that he has secretly sworn his love both to Goneril and Regan, and matters will get complicated if both women remain alive. But perhaps Goneril could be manipulated to kill her husband after the battle ends, and thus clear Edmund's way to power.

He also knows that Albany is planning to be merciful if Lear and Cordelia are captured and defeated... but Edmund has no intention of being so merciful.
