As an army approaches Macbeth, it can be apparent to the reader that Macbeth had the appearance of free will but no real free will in the first place because his fate is set no matter what he does, All is confirmed, my lord, which my bones my flesh be hacked: (V,III, 37-39).
Though Macbeth thought he was safe after getting rid of almost all opposition he could have, his fate is unchangable "As I did stand my watch upon the hill,/ I looked toward Birnam, and anon methougt/ The wood began to move" (V,V, 37-39).
Macbeth and his name slowly fades as his fate comes nearer and nearer "The Queen my lord is dead" (V,V,19).
Macbeth finds out that Macduff is the one the apparitions said he would be killed by, "Tell thee Macbeth was from his mother's womb/ Untimely ripped" (V, VIII, 19-20).
Even knowing that he is going to die by the hands of Macduff, Macbeth chooses to fight instead of flee emphasizing yet again that Macbeth's free will and fate overlap each other, "And thou opposed, being of no woman born, Yet I will try the last. Before my body/ I throw my warlike shield. Lay on, Macduff" (V,VIII, 36-38).
