Ever since Ophelia lost her father she has not been the same person. Horatio pities her because her grief has made her disordered and crazy.
Havana, ooh na-na
He took me back to East Atlanta ooh na-na
Why are you singing? Have you gone mad woman?
Laertes storms in very angry at the death of his father and wanting to get revenge on the person who did it. Claudius convinces him to listen to his side of the story.
He's coming back tomorrow you say? Now I can get my revenge over with quickly.
I mean it was basically all Hamlet's fault. But I decided not to punish him because I am a just king. I gave Polonius a proper burial when I found his body. I have just received news from a messenger that he is to return tomorrow.
As Laertes and Claudius are speaking about Hamlet, Gertrude comes in and delivers the news that Ophelia has drowned to death. Then two grave diggers then argue whether they believe Ophelia deserves a proper Christian burial.
I think she does deserve one, she was grieving.
I mean I dont know because in the bible it says suicide is a sin.
After the funeral, Hamlet tells Horatio his devious plan to switch out the letter with his death order with one for Guildenstern and Rosencrantz. He makes a point to say he has no pity for them what so ever because they sided with Claudius.
All men will eventually die and turn to dust. That is just a fact of life. Life is so fragile and short.
I just want to be near my sister one last time.
Hamlet is then informed that Claudius wants him and Laertes to fight, although Claudius has other plans in mind. He plans to kill Hamlet with poisoned wine. The fencing match begins with Hamlet striking first wins but declines the drink. Innocent Gertrude drinks the poisoned not knowing its contents and dies.
I have waited long enough for this. Drink the rest of this wine now!
You took my sword! I have been stabbed with my own poisoned sword.
"It is the poison'd cup: it is too late" (5.2.235)
Before Laertes dies, Hamlet apologizes for killing his father.
Horatio, I'm dying. But I don't want all that has happened today to make you give up on life. Also if you don't mind telling people my amazing story that would be great.
