To take revenge on Othello, Iago manipulates Rodrigo and Brabantio by rousing him whilst he was in deep slumber and telling him that his daughter Desdemona eloped with Othello
  • Brabantio takes the case to the Duke and accuses Othello of using witchcraft on Desdemona. Othello refutes these accusations and says that their love is real.

  • I'm worried! I know how much it means to him. Where is it?
  • Oh! um...I don't have it right now Othello!

He strangles Desdemona and ends her life.
  • The climax of the play takes place in this final act. Iago's multi-faced scheme is revealed and more tragedies take place. Iago kills his innocent wife Emilia once he realizes that she told Othello the truth about his personality and wrong-doings.. Othello is a victim of his own guilt; he commits suicide! Cassio doesn't die and neither does Iago. This leaves the audience wondering how and when will justice truly be served
