Roxane rushes to his side, and Cyrano comes to, asking Roxane if he can see the letter Christian wrote for her? Roxane replies and says that the letter is blood-stained and tear-stained and therefore hard to read. She gives him the letter, and he reads it remarkably well, as the letter is stained and it is dark out. She suddenly exclaims that she now knows it was Cyrano all along, only using Christian as a vessel. She asks him why he kept silent for so long, because those are his tears. Cyrano replies that the blood is Christian's.
