Lennox and another lord are talking politics. For his part, Lennox is pretty suspicious of Macbeth and doesn’t believe the new king’s version of recent events. We learn that Macduff has fled to England, where he’s joined up with Malcolm. They’re trying to get the King of England on board with a plan to overthrow Macbeth. The unnamed Lord also tells Lennox that Macbeth has heard these rumors and is prepping for all out war.
