Act III, Scene 3
We must kill Banquo and his son for Macbeth. We cannot let Banquo's children ever claim the throne.
Run! Avenge my death, Son!
I'm not sure I can trust you, Macduff. You left your family in Scotland.
the three witches appear. They hear a drum beat and one witch yells that Macbeth is on his way. Macbeth and Banquo arrive and are very surprised to see the witches. Banquo asks if they are mortals. The witches address Macbeth as thane of Glamis and thane of Cawdor. Then they tell Banquo that he will never be king, but his children will sit on the throne. Macbeth begs them for more information, but the witches disappear right before their eyes.
Act IV, Scene 3
Oh, no, Malcom! Macbeth is a tyrant! My loyalties are to you!
Macduff asks Macbeth if King Duncan is awake because he needs to speak to him. Macbeth takes him to the King's room where he is supposedly sleeping. Macduff comes running out shouting the the king has been murdered. Malcom and Donalbain arrive and are told that their father was killed, probably by his chamberlains. Macbeth says that he killed the chamberlains because he was so angry over his father's death.
Act V, Scene 3
Sir Macbeth, there is an army of 10,000 marching to Dunsinane.
the witches said I can't be beat, but this doesn't sound good.
Servant! Get my armor!!!
The murderers, hired by Macbeth, meet in the woods outside of the palace. Banquo and his son, Fleance, arrive. Once they are off their horses, the murderers take action. Banquo is trapped and tells his son to run and avenge his death. One of the murderers accidentally puts out the torch. Fleance is able to get away in the dark.
Malcom is trying some reverse psychology on Macduff. He wants Macduff to show his loyalities to him. Malcom tells Macduff that he's not sure he can trust him since he left his family in Scotland. He tells him he thinks he may even be working for Macbeth. He then tells him that he's not sure that he will be a good king. Macduff proves his loyalties to Malcom and even admits that Malcom wouldn't be fit to rule Scotland.
Macbeth is ready for battle. Based on what the witches said, he believed that he will not be beaten in any battle. Then a messenger entered and told him that there is an army of 10,000 marching to Dunsinane. He starts to feel nervous, but then yells to his servant to get his armor to prepare for battle.
