The effect of the setting is that, it has made it possible for evil to be committed without the ability to determine who is committing the evil against the others.
On the other hand, Act V scene II is in a bedroom setting within the castle, where Desdemona finally meets her death (Shakespeare, 187). As opposed to the setting full of darkness in Scene I, the setting in Scene II is one where the acts of each character are recognizable.

Although Montano speaks of the goodness of Othello, Iago starts to plot and plan Othello’s fall by causing confusion between Othello, his wife Desdemona, Cassio and Roderigo.
He puts this down to magic, as if their love is caused by some sort of drug, which shows his modesty and his gratitude at this surprising turn of events. In the second passage he appears as a somewhat boastful person, telling tales of his exotic past,
