What mistakes are made in much ado about nothing by characters?

Well, it depends on what you think are mistakes. Certainly many people are deceived by others, especially Claudio, who makes the mistake of believing what Don John tells him twice, and also makes the mistake of believing that Hero died at the wedding. Both Beatrice and Benedick are deceived into believing that the other is pining away from unrequited love. But these are deceptions which are intended to give people the wrong impression. It was clearly a mistake for Borachio and Conrade to discuss the plot to deceive Claudio and Don Pedro in a public place where they could have been and were overheard. At a deeper level, it was clearly a mistake to make an idiot like Dogberry the head of the watch. And many of us think that Hero made the mistake twice of agreeing to marry Claudio.
