The Witches plan to meet with Macbeth. The setting accentuates the overall feeling of the play
Duncan ironically calls Macbeth a "valiant cousin" (I.ii.24) and names him Thane of Cawdor for his accomplishments.
Macbeth is told of his future as the Thane of Cawdor and later King. Macbeth does not know that he has already been named the thane and therfore has mare reason to believe the witches.
King Duncan names his son, Malcolm, as his heir, breaking Scottish tradition. This gives Macbeth another obstacle to becoming King. He also announces that he will be staying with Macbeth, giving him the opportunity to take the crown.
Lady Macbeth speaks to her husband about his potential success, but as he is still a good man he decides to "speak about it further" (I.iv.63) in a later time
Lady Macbeth convinces her husband to kill the king after threatening him with her views of him. Macbeth finally agrees to take the title as king, giving the reader the first glimpse at Lady Macbeth's witch-like tendencies.
