DEATH There’s blood upon thy face. ’Tis Banquo’s then. ’Tis better thee without than he within. Is he dispatched? My lord, his throat is cut. That I did for him. (III.IV.12-16)
OWN WORST ENEMY "It will have blood, they say; blood will have blood. Stones have been known to move, and trees to speak; Augurs and understood relations have By maggot pies and choughs and rooks brought forth The secret’st man of blood." (III.IV.122-126)
Act 3 begins with Macbeth remembering what the witches said about Banquo and Fleance coming to power, which gives him motivation to murder them. To do this, he hosts a dinner and invites Banquo over. Macbeth later hires three murderers to complete the job for him. That night, when Banquo and his son Fleance arrived, the murderers were waiting to kill them. They killed Banquo, but didn’t get to Fleance in time and he escaped. At dinner, Banquo’s ghost appeared, and Macbeth started to hallucinate and freak out. After the dinner, Hecate had cast a spell on Macbeth to make sure he would lose power. Macduff thinks that Macbeth has to do with the death of King Duncan, so him, Lenoxx, and others would raise an army and take over Scotland.

*Act 3, Scene 4 *Lady Macbeth, Macbeth "Own worst enemy” is a theme in scene 4. Macbeth begins to freak out about things that he’s done. He is his own worst enemy because of his consciousness. “Death” plays a large role to because killing people has become one of Macbeth’s instincts. He continues to murder and is now scared that he will be caught. These themes tie into each other because Macbeth’s motive to kill people(death)has become too great, and now it’s too late to go back to what has happened. Now he’s unhappy with what he’s caused, that he doesn’t even know who he is, and thinks of himself as an enemy.
