The Ultimate Plan™
The Scene Where Everyone Dies
After Polonius's death, Claudius sends Hamlet to England, along with two of his friends. Hamlet was supposed to die, but instead he finds the letter and changes it to kill his two "friends". Meanwhile, Ophelia is going insane and she kills herself because of her father's death. Laertes, son of Polonius, returns to avenge his family.
Claudius takes advantage of Laertes's rage an hatches a plan to kill Hamlet once and for all. They plan to challenge Hamlet to a duel and to poison the tip of Laertes's sharpened sword so Hamlet will die when he is struck. Just to be sure, they also poison a cup of wine that Hamlet will drink.
During the duel, the Queen drinks the poisoned glass that was meant for Hamlet. Then during a break, Laertes stabbed Hamlet and Hamlet in return stabs him with rage. Right after this, the queen dies and before Laertes dies, he tells Hamlet of the plan. Hamlet then stabs Claudius and forces him to drink the poison as well, killing him. Hamlet then dies and Horatio is the only main character that is alive.
