  1. Alysha Says:

    The banquet scene is such an effective scene in which Macbeth is publicly displaying his atrocity and transgressions. His mental breakdown in front of his guests will likely damage is kingship.

  2. Rainey T Says:

    I think the third murderer is Lady Macbeth, she seems so sneaky and want to see that the job gets done

  3. Sandra Taylor Says:

    I think that the third murderer was sent by the witches. Because if it had of been Lady Macbeth who hired him then she probably would have seen Banquo’s ghost as well. In think that the witches wanted to make sure that Fleance got away as well.

  4. Bianca Says:

    I think the third murderer was Macbeth himself. I think that he got weak and didnt want to kill his friend banquo but only his son. He might have gone along to make sure that the murderers failed to kill his friend but make sure they killed fleance, and something didnt go right.

  5. Kelsey Says:

    I think that the thrid murderer was a spy for Macbeth to make sure that the murderers did what they said they were going to do. Considering, Macbeth had spies in lots of people’s houses, why wouldn’t he send one to make sure the job got done?

  6. AMELIA B! Says:

    I think the banquet scene was a very effective scene due to the fact that MacBeth is seen as having a “break-down” and in acuality he is not. People such as Banquo and Lady MacBeth tries to make it seems as if MacBeth is going crazy, but he is only experiencing what anyone would do in his situation. He is still the saine man that everyone was acquainted with prior to this incident.

    Besides the fact that I know Ms. Hargraves is with holding important information — I think the third murderer is Lady MacBeth. She has this…this thirll for killing. She knows what she wants and does not stop until she has accomplished that goal. She is fully aware of everything that goes on within the castle so anyone who has the job of coming to kill her husband she would know about it…

  7. Michelle Says:

    I think the third murder was sent by lady Macbeth. She sent him without even thinking Macbeth was sending his own men. She sent him because she thought Macbeth was not tough enough to take care of it.
