The denouement of Uriah Heep in David Copperfield and Macbeth in the play of that name.


Towards the end of the novel, Wilkins Micawber exposes Heep for the fraudulent and corrupt way he has exploited Mr Wickfield's alcoholism to become a partner.

Another would be in Macbeth when Macduff tells Macbeth how he was born thus confirming the witches prophecy and sealing Macbeth's fate.
