In this scene, Iago is explaining to Roderigo why he hates Othello. He claims that it is because he deserves to be Othello's lieutenant and not the person that Othello chose which is Cassio. Iago and Roderigo continue to talk and overtime, Iago comes up with an idea to try to ruin Othello's life, career, and/or reputation. This plan is to inform the senator, Brabantio about his daughter's (Desdemona) relationship with Othello which he did not know about. Roderigo leads the way to Brabantio's house and when they get there, they wake him up from his sleep and tell him about the relationship between his daughter and Othello. They also make it sound worse then it is just to make him angrier. Barbantio then calls up his men to hunt down Othello to figure out what is happening with him and his daughter, Desdemona.
