Up to this point in the play banquo has been a man of the utmost integrity. In light of his soliloquy at the opening of act 3 would you say there is evidence of change or does he seem to continue in his original role? Support and explain your answer.

Alone at Macbeth's court, Banquo voices his suspicions that Macbeth has killed Duncan in order to fulfill the witches' prophesies. He muses that perhaps the witches' vision for his own future will also be realized, but pushes the thought from his mind. In this section, Banquo does not change in the least. He does not act to fulfill the witches prophecies, nor does he bend his sense of morality to achieve an end. Banquo continues in his original role.
