Scene 1: In Scotland, in Macbeth's castle, a doctor and gentlewomen enter the scene. Lady Macbeth is known to sleep walk and have been saying weird things. The doctor points out the fact that Lady Macbeth tends to rub her hands together; one of the gentlewomen say,"It is an accustomed action with her to / seem thus washing her hands. I have known her / continue in this a quarter of an hour." This suggests that Lady Macbeth is trying to wash off all the blood in her hands even though the "blood" is only suggested figuratively. (V. I. 30-32)
Scene 1: Lady Macbeth starts to sleep walk and says,"Out, damned spot! Out, I say! Yet who would have thought the old man to have had so much blood in him." In this scene, Lady Macbeth reenacts the night she was washing Duncan's blood off her hands. (V.i.25-31)
Scene 4: Malcolm, Macduff, Siward, Cathness and other soldiers plan to cut down the branches of a tree to camouflage themselves from Macbeth's troops. "Let every soldier hew him down a bough / And hear't before him: thereby shall we shadow / The numbers of our host and make discovery" This applies to the theme because Macbeth only sees a few soldiers yet there are more of them that appear. (V, IV, 6-8)
Scene 6: Macbeth, in Dunsinane, learns of his wife's suicide but is distracted by the branches covering the soldiers. Malcolm says, "Now, near enough: Your leafy screens throw down / And show like those you are" It is revealed that the branches are actually Malcolm's army. (V, VI, 1-2)
Scene 8: "Now, near enough: Your leafy screens throw down / And show like those you are" In this scene, Macbeth realizes that the witch's led him to commit these crimes by tempting him with Duncan's throne. The witches were not what they initially appeared to be. (V, vi, 1-2)
