Pretend to be good hosts to the King- Macbeth can't hide his emotions very well.

Get the guards really drunk and spike their drinks.-what if the guards don't pass out?

Kill the King- Does Macbeth really have what it takes?

Place daggers and blood on the guards to frame them for killing the King- Why would the guards want to kill the King?

Wash blood and pretend to be shocked when the King is found dead in the morning.- Macbeth can't act very well. He lets his guilty conscience show.
