He wishes Columbine to marry a rich suitor, so he keeps her locked up inside the house, away from Harlequin. He entrusts the key to his servant, Pierrot, Columbina’s friend, Pierretta, comes to the house and steals the key away from Pierrot. She unlocks the house and lets Harlequin in, allowing the two lovers to reunite and more dancing to ensue.
