Brabantio is prejudiced against Othello as a son-in-law, feels Desdemona is making a mistake, and disowns her. Desdemona’s unshakable love for Othello keeps her from realizing she’s in real danger, until it’s too late. Othello’s blind trust in Iago keeps him from seeing his ensign’s malice. Iago will never accept that Cassio will make a better lieutenant than he would. Emilia, having been trained to obey her husband, can’t see that he’s up to mischief with Desdemona’s handkerchief until her mistress is murdered.
