At the end of the play Helena has got back her love, Demetrius, but he is still under the influence of Oberon’s spell. Unlike Hermia who has a true love, Helena is left with a love that is a sort of illusion.

find a cure.

Helena: Excuse me my husband has been having pain in his eyes.

Helena: Oh, thank you very much.

As Helena leaves, the apothacrist magically turns into Oberon. He smiles.

Oberon: This new potion will wash away the love juice from his eyes,

For it is time Helena knew if his love be truth or lies.
