In EPISODE THREE, the noblemen investigate who killed King Duncan. The King’s son Malcolm, fearful for his own safety, flees to England, which makes the other noblemen suspicious that he is guilty.
Meanwhile, Macbeth is crowned king, just as the witches foretold. Fearing that Banquo’s descendants will become kings according to the witches’ other prophecy, Macbeth hires murderers to kill him. At a royal banquet that evening, Macbeth sees Banquo’s ghost, covered in blood, which brings us to EPISODE FOUR.
