This storyboard does not have a description.
After Macbeth has a strange encounter with the witches, he sends a note home to his wife, explaining how their prophecies have came true (he was crowned Thane of Cawdor), and that he is the soon to be king. As Lady Macbeth continues reading the note, the more eager she becomes, to put matters into her own hands, since she thinks Macbeth is too kind hearted to do anything drastic.
Whiles I stood rapt in the wonder of it came missives from the King, who hailed me "Thane of Cawdor," by which title, before, these Weird Sisters saluted me and referred to the coming on of time with "Hail, king that shalt be."
After being informed by the messenger, Lady Macbeth awaits the arrival of the king and Macbeth. As the messenger leaves the castle, Lady Macbeth begins to plan her attack on Duncan. She listens to the sudden prophecies that have been fulfilled, and tries to quicken the sisters' predictions.
The king comes here tonight.
That croaks the fatal entrance of Duncan under my battlements.
The more Lady Macbeth let the idea of her husband becoming king seep in, the more devious she became. She begins calling on the spirits of Duncan's death and the new becoming of Macbeth on the throne. She seemed as if Macbeth got the throne, then the more powerful she seemed. When Duncan would be sleeping, she wanted to stab him and change the legacy of the throne.
Come to my woman's breasts and take my milk for gall, you murd'ring ministers.
When Macbeth returns home, Lady Macbeth greets him as the Thane of Cawdor, which he expressed in his letter. As Duncan's wishes to stay at the castle, Lady Macbeth explains her desire to kill him, so Macbeth can take throne. She explains how Macbeth should stab Duncan in his sleep, but not to worry about anything else, as she would take care of the rest. The next day would change the lives of both.
Duncan comes here tonight.
To alter favor ever is to fear. Leave all the rest to me.
