The Tempest Act III, Scene 2 – Summary
Caliban, Stephano, and Trinculo were drinking.
Caliban wanted to take revenge on his master Prospero with the help of Stephano. Caliban told Stephano that he could lead him to Prospero’s cell, where Stephano could kill Prospero while the latter would be in deep sleep.
Caliban also flattered Stephano by telling him that he (Stephano) would be able to become the king of the island after Prospero’s end and marry Miranda.
Ariel had been listening to the discussion between Caliban, Stephano, and Trinculo and came to know about their conspiracy to end Prospero. It led the conspirators away by the sound of its tabor and pipe.
