Act 1 Scene 5- Lady Macbeth receives a letter from Macbeth explaining the meeting he had with the witches and how he will be become king.

Act 2 Scene 3- Everyone comes to the castle and discovers the death of King Duncan. Macbeth claims that he killed the chamberlains pot of fury for them not gaurding the king well. Macbeth then becomes suspicious of Macbeth and Duncan's sons flee in fear they will be next."Had I but died an hour before this chance, I had lived a blessèd time, for from this instant there’s nothing serious in mortality.All is but toys. Renown and grace is dead."- Macbeth

Act 5 Scenes 4 and 8- Macbeth was told that Birnam Woods were migrating towards the castle and Macbeth began to go mad. This ended with the battle between Macbeth and Macduff where Macbeths courage was striken from him when he learned Macduff was not technically "born" form a woman.

Soon after this, Macbeth heard women crying and screaming and finds out that his wife was killed.

Out, out, brief candle! Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and then is heard no more. It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing."

Act 4 Scene 2 and 3- The witches told Macbeth to beware of Macduff. He figured the best way to do that was kill him, but since he fled the country Macbeth had people kill Macduff's family. This news got back to Macduff and angered him. He swore he would avenge their deaths and kill macbeth.

Come, seeling night,scarf up the tender eye of pitiful day and with thy bloody and invisible hand cancel and tear to pieces that great bond which keeps me pale." Macbeth
