We start out episode one on the streets of Venice, during the dark of night.

(which was set up by Iago), and he starts to feel the first pangs of jealousy. When Desdemona asks her husband to give back Cassio’s job, Iago points out all too quickly that her behavior towards Cassio is suspicious.

A now suspicious Othello demands that Iago prove his assumptions about his wife and Cassio. Meanwhile, Desdemona unfortunately drops the handkerchief that was given to her by Othello.
