Will all great Neptune’s ocean wash this blood Clean from my hand: No, this my hand will rather The multitudinous seas incarnadine, Making the green one red.
Out, damned spot! Out, I say!
As Macbeth is left to face the bloody consequences of his murder, he is consumed by the actions and guilt that his ambition caused him to commit. This shows how we can overlook the precautions of our wants until after the deed is done and you can not fix the past.
We further see the effects of Macbeth ambition as Duncan's body has now been found and the servants are covered in blood. Macbeth then has to act quickly to eliminate the possible witnesses, and he lies to everyone there pretending that he knew nothing about the murder. Macbeth then goes on to say that Duncan's pure blood now stains his polished skin, and now he bears the weight of two more dead lives on his shoulders.
Here lay Duncan, His silver skin laced with his golden blood
In this scene, we finally see the result of Lady Macbeth's ambition, and the guilt that came from it. As she tries to wash out "the spot" that stains her hand, the doctor and the servant witness her truth: What Lady Macbeth thought was going to be an action she could just forget about, the murder is leading her mind to an unstable state because she is overridden with guilt.
