Is it the same Falstaff as part 1?

Is he doing the same job - is he just a giant, red herring?

No one tell me Shakespeare didn't want Falstaff to dominate this play!

He is the same Falstaff. And yes, he dominates this play.
The parting scene between him and the new king at the end of the play is one of the most poignant Shakespeare ever wrote.

and with the character being so popular it was promised he returned in Henry V. There some possible explainations as to why this didn't occur - a key one being the actor playing the role leaving the group and no other actor wanted to walk in their shoes. He dies off-stage in Henry V.
