Then comes resolve, and finally gains. We can see Faustus doubting Mephastophilis in lines 175-187 when Mephastophilis does not satisfy Faustus. We then see persuasion when the Good and Evil Angels enter. Then comes resolve when Faustus sides with the devil, while thinking about all the things he has done, his gains follow as a conversation with Mephastophilis about astrology. The Good and Evil Angels play an important part in the play, each time they talk, the Evil angel always has the last say, and sometimes gets to say more then the Good Angel, considering Faustus will always agree with the last thing the Angels say, this is important because it means he is always siding with the Evil Angel. However, in lines 253-256, the Good Angel get to speak last, it is the only time in the play that the Good Angel gets any notice taken of him, this is important at this point in the play, as it adds to the dramatic climax just before the entrance of the seven deadly sins, because first Faustus resolves on the side of good, however Lucifer and Beelzebub then enter to finally make Faustus fall onto the side of evil. His final gains in the cycle that Marlowe created is the display of the seven deadly sins, rather than heaven, the ultimate gain he would have received if he would have repented.
