"All hail, Macbeth... Thane of Glamis... thane of Cawdor... thou shalt be king hereafter! (I.iii.45-50).
"Than wishest should be undone.'Hie thee hither,... and chastise with the valour of my tongue" (i.v.30-32).
"O horror, horror, horror! Tongue nor heart cannot conceive nor name thee! (II,iii,100-110).
Macbeths' first encounter with the witches proves to be quite unique, it shapes his future immensely. The witches greet him and give him information that leads him to believe that he, according to fate, will become the king in replacement of the current king, Duncan.
Lady Macbeth is "welcoming" her husband home from a heroic battle directly after she read a letter that he sent her; a letter in which he displayed his future position to be king. She starts to manipulate him into a person that would be capable of killing his guest, and king. This shows a change from a more, "innocent" position to one that is considerably more evil.
This scene is directly following the night that Macbeth brutally murdered King Duncan; in this final scene, we can see a good viewpoint of how much Macbeth has changed. He started off as a loyal servant to the king, and when greed was presented, he quickly betrayed the guest in home.
