Laertes is another character that does not hesitate when it is his turn to avenge his father and sister’s death: “But my revenge will come! “ (4.7.29).

In knowing his prediction, Macbeth also realized that since the king was in good health, so he would have to kill the king himself. For the rest of his prophecy to come true he would have to kill the king for himself. “All hail, Macbeth that shalt be king hereafter!”
