Enter Macbeth is the ninth episode of Gargoyles.



When Xanatos' release from prison approaches Elisa attempts to convince Goliath, and the clan to leave, but they are adamantly against it, claiming the castle to be all they have left. Meanwhile, a man named Macbeth, who seems to know a lot about gargoyles, approaches Xanatos and offers to force them out. After a difficult confrontation, during which it is revealed that his primary objective is searching for Demona, the clan manage to escape his compound. The clan is forced to find a new home in a clock tower, taking with them the Grimorum Arcanorum.

The Story


  • Macbeth is introduced, hence the title.
    • Macbeth alludes to his connection to Demona, specifically, he reveals that he gave her her name.
    • Strangely he also refers to her as the gargoyles' Queen. Given how close they are later revealed to have been, he should have been aware that Gargoyles do not have Queens.
  • Xanatos is paroled and released from prison.
  • As of this episode the Manhattan Clan moves into the Clock Tower.
  • Goliath takes the Grimorum Arcanorum with him when he leaves.
  • Elisa spends the episode on crutches, as a result of the injuries she received in Deadly Force.



  • Macbeth is a play written by William Shakespear, about a character of the same name, which is something Lexington points out.
