Orestes and Electra come out of the hut, followed by attendants who are carrying the two corpses. The following lines between Electra, Orestes and the Chorus are chanted.
0 Earth, and Zeus who sees all mortal acts, look at these loathsome bloody deeds, these two bodies  lying on the earth at the blow from my hand, atonement for my suffering . . . Electra
Too many tears, my brother, and I am the cause. Unhappy, that I came to fiery rage against this woman, who was my mother! Chorus
 Alas for your fate; you gave birth to unbearable pain, and you suffered it, miserably and beyond, from your children. Yet you have rightly paid for their father's murder.
