This storyboard does not have a description.
Scene 1: Macbeth and Banquo enter the scene. Banquo describes how comfortable and happy King Duncan is because of the gifts he got from the servants. King Duncan also got a diamond from Lady Macbeth. Macbeth then says,""Being unprepared, Our will became the servant to defect, Which else should free have wrought." The dramatic irony in this is that the reason why they were "unprepared" was because they were at the last minute, planning the murder of King Duncan. (2.1.21-23)
Scene 1: Macbeth starts to hallucinate a bloody dagger that does not exist. This is caused by the traumatic extent that has taken a toll on Macbeth's mentally stability. He says,"I see thee still, / And, on thy blade on dudgeon, gouts of blood, / Which was not so before." This also foreshadows King Duncan's death. (2.1.57-59)
Scene 2: Macbeth enters the scene holding a dagger. When King Duncan's murder is discovered, Macbeth starts to freak out. But Lady Macbeth says," "Go carry them and smear the sleepy grooms with blood" to erase any evidence that could lead back to Macbeth. (2.2.63-64)
Scene 3: Malcolm, Donalbain, Macduff and Macbeth enter the scene. Malcolm and Donalbain learn of their fathers death along with the deaths of the guards; whom were also killed by Macbeth. When asked by Macduff why he killed the guards, Macbeth says,"Who could refrain / That had a heart of love, and in that heart / Courage to make's love known?" Macbeth pretends to be loyal to Duncan so no one would suspect that he killed him. (2.3. 135-137)
Scene 4: Ross, Old Man, and Macduff enter the scene. They discuss the death of Duncan and the guards. Ross is curious and wonders what the guards would have benefit from killing King Duncan. But Macduff says,"They were suborned. Malcolm and Donalbain, the king’s two sons, Are stol'n away and fled, which puts upon them Suspicion of the deed." This implies that because Duncan's sons ran away, it makes them look guilty and prime suspects for their father's murder. (2.4.36-38)
