In Medea's first monologue, she reflects on the grievances that she has against Jason.  She recalls that she has abandoned her homeland and betrayed her father to help Jason in battle and to become his wife.  She is outraged that he has cast her aside to take another wife, and she wants Jason to see the error of his ways and to pay for what he has done to her.  She feels that she has made dire sacrifices for him, so she wants Jason to recognize her loyalty to him.  At the end of her monologue, she says that Jason will pay for what he has done to her because he has scorned her love for him.  This last line sets the course of revenge that Medea will enact against Jason.
