    Act 1 Event 2: Scene 3
    The event that is important in this scene is when Ophelia is being told not to see Hamlet again and when she agrees to the commands.

    Act 2 Event 1: Scene 2
    One event in this scene is when Polonius tells the king and queen that he has figured out why Hamlet is sad. This is actually irrelevant to the reader for now because they know that that may be a reason but they know the real reason for his depression, it isn’t till Polonius suggests that Ophelia should talk to Hamlet so they can eavesdrop then the reader is unsure of what is going to happen. Will Hamlet know what they are planning, will he confide in Ophelia or will he throw a fit.
