Adam advises Orlando to move away Oliver’s house as Oliver has made a plan to burn lodgings while he would asleep. He also tells Orlando that there is possibility if his plan fails, then Oliver might try to attempt other treacherous ways for killing his mother. Initially he refuses as he believes if it might turn him into thief or force him into begging.
