Polonius bids Reynaldo farewell and then we never see him again.
What happens to him after he leaves Denmark?
Does he fall in with the wrong crowd in Paris? Or perhaps something goes awry on the way to France? Or right after he walks out of this room?
Does he reach France at all?
Does he put Polonius’ plan into action? Or is he hit by a bus on the way?
There is no real reason for Reynaldo to return to the play. He has served his purpose here. He has helped paint Polonius as a man who keeps sneaky tabs on his son and then, poof, he is gone. Farewell Reynaldo. Or rather – adieu. We won’t see you again. Maybe he’s hanging out with Marcellus.
