Macbeth did not make the most exceptional decisions in his life. He has the chance to avoid all of that by letting things be, but his thirst for power is stronger.

Once Ryan decided to leave Jones found out and sent gunman to terminate Ryan and the reporter out of fear that the truth about Jonestown would be exposed.

Just to get what she wanted, she did convince macbeth to commit crimes, but Macbeth is still the person with the last word. He cannot do anything by himself because he is scared, but when his wife helps him out, she herself does not wish to kill anyone. The one who commits the crime pays the price.

No one was willing to attempt to understand him except for Agathe who was blind, but even that was short lived as Felix was quick to attack the creature. Although labelled as a horrifying monster, nothing but his exterior fit this description, until he was discriminated by society.
He says that “..if I had of been there I would of known and I wouldn’t be like I am now” (367). Basically, what he is saying is that he is a cruel person for being punished for something he claims he did not do.

The family had an accident and The Misfit choose to kill them all, instead of helping them.
