Brutus lets go of his anger toward Cassius and forgives him.
Explanation: If I recall correctly, Brutus and Cassius were arguing with each other up until this point when he mentions Portia's death, which is the stem of the internal anger he suppressed until this point. Cassius, in a way, acknowledges that he now understands Brutus' reasons for his anger. Now that Brutus has opened up to Cassius, he lets go of his anger and forgives Cassius.
Hope that helps!
