It's been a while since we had our last murder. Let's fix that.
Don't ask me who the hooded and masked third murderer is. Nobody really knows. He could just be some random thug hired by Macbeth to boost their number, but directors tend to have more fun with him. In Roman Polanski's film adaptation, he's actually the slippery Thane of Ross, cementing his position as Macbeth's henchman-in-chief. In many other productions he's Seyton, Macbeth's loyal servant, sent along to keep an eye on proceedings. Whoever he is, he's not very nice.
Anyways... bye-bye, Banquo! Tune in next week, when... *flips quickly through play* ...Banquo comes back??? Oooooooo....
