gradesaver addresses the dialogue directed at the audience in its summary and analysis. I have provided the direct link below;

short answer....... the audience learns of Leontes' jealousy and suspicions first hand; he questions his own son in regard to his true parentage, and he places a death sentence on his wife that it seems will be carried out. The audience might be horrified as they well know that Polixenes is without blame.
