Once together, Calisto and Melibea enjoy their love secretly without knowing that there's a plot against them by two prostitutes, Elicia and Areusa, who blame them for the death of Sempronio and Parmeno. [[spoiler: Two thugs, Centurio and Traso, are hired by Elicia and Areusa to murder Calisto during one of his nocturne dates with Melibea, but what actually causes Calisto's death is slipping off a ladder and falling head first to the ground when he hurries to help his servants. After discovering his death, Melibea commits suicide. The work ends with Melibea's father, Pleberio, crying for the death of his daughter.]]

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Melibea is arguably playing with Calisto in the first scene, but for the rest of the work she's completely naive and innocent. Let's remember Fernando de Rojas didn't wrote the first act, but someone else.
