After the battle of Sybota, Corinth and Corcyra accord the peace. Marius comes back home, and Cosette receives him with love and glee. However, she can not forget what Éponine and she lives together, nor the slave, and they still meet secretly, keeping on their forbidden love. But Éponine falls into jealousy when she look at Marius and Cosette together, and her love for her makes her suffers so much, she decides to take her own life in the sea of the Corinth Canal.

'Twas this deprived my soul of rest, 
And raised such tumults in my breast; 
For, while I gazed, in transport tossed, 
My breath was gone, my voice was lost.
