MACBETH enters as king, LADY MACBETH as queen, LENNOX, ROSS, LORDS,LADIES, and attendants
are they here already?
they're waiting outside, sir.
Banquo says how he can't make it to the feast as Macbeth feels uneasy with banquo but still invited him to the ceremonial dinner to raise no suspicion
Murder in the making
as Banquo leaves, Macbeth called in the murders to help him plan the death of Banquo and his son for "murdering their father" but its so they won't be the future kings like the witch has said.
Macbeth asks servant if the men are waiting for him in which servant says they are and goes to get them. In the meantime, Macbeth has a word with himself, expressing his fear of Banquo and and the events that have occured.
Macbeth could use his powers to get rid of Banquo, but he can't because they have many friends in common that he needs. Macbeth needs to cry over Banquo's death in public so nobody could think it was him.
It must be done tonight away from the palace. For the plan to work perfectly, the murderers must kill both Banquo and his son Fleance.
