This picture reminded me of Polonius who seems to enjoy spying on people throughout the play. He first spies on his son, Laertes by sending Reynaldo to Paris and act as if he knows Laertes. This way he can find out if Laertes drinks, fences, swears or gets into fights. He then spies on Hamlet later on. He wants to test his theory that Hamlet is mad because of the frustration of his love for Ophelia.
