She reveals that she played a role in the deaths of Banquo and Lady Macduff.
The witches told Macbeth that “none of woman born” can harm him; he believes that Macduff falls into this category and therefore cannot hurt him.
As the act goes on, worries of Lady Macbeth’s mental state rise; she has revealed her guilt during a sleepwalking episode and begins to descend into madness. The English and Scottish armies plan to join forces against Macbeth, who is confident that he will be fine. The army agrees to use tree branches from the forest to disguise themselves as they approach the castle that Macbeth is occupying. Lady Macbeth dies, and the battle begins shortly after her death. Macbeth is confident during the battle that he cannot be hurt because of the witches’ prophecy that “none of woman born” can harm him, but is defeated by Macduff, who was removed from the womb via C-section. Malcom becomes king of Scotland.
