Scenes 3.2 and 3.3

Scene 3.2 - The palace
Lady Macbeth encounters Macbeth appearing grim and pensive. She tells him that the deed is done, and there is no need to think about it anymore. Macbeth does not believe that his troubles ended with the murder of Duncan because he thinks that everyone suspects him. He would rather be like Duncan, dead and buried, so that no poison or knife can touch him. Macbeth tells his wife to prepare some nice speeches praising Banquo, as he keeps the knowledge of the murder plot to himself. He begins to chant like the witches, trying to summon the evil spirits to make sure that the murder of Banquo and his son goes smoothly tonight.


Scene 3.3 - Near the palace
The two murderers, joined by an unexpected third murderer supposedly hired by Macbeth, hide in waiting for the arrival of Banquo and Fleance. It is late and there are only a few streaks of light left. The murderers surprise Banquo and Fleance in their walk back to the castle. They successfully kill Banquo, but in the confusion of the dark, they lose Fleance, who manages to escape.
