A joyful reunion takes place in Episode 4 of Pericles, Prince of Tyre!
In Episode 4, “This great miracle”, Pericles daughter Marina is kidnapped and sold to a brothel in Mytilene. Her virtue disrupts the disreputable business and so she devises an escape and earns her living as a teacher. Wracked by grief, a despondent Pericles drifts into Mytilene after learning in Tarsus that his daughter is dead. Lysimachus, the local governor, summons Marina thinking her kindness might comfort the depressed prince. Thus begins a mounting exchange between father and daughter that ends in joyous recognition when Marina utters the name of her dead mother, Thaisa. But the gods are not yet done with Pericles. Diana descends and orders him to visit her temple in Ephesus. There he must recount the tale of his hardships in full, for in Ephesus, another reunion awaits.
