Ophelia does help spy on Hamlet in Shakespeare’s Hamlet.  In Act 3.1 Claudius sends for Hamlet so that Ophelia can talk to him while Claudius and Polonius listen. At issue is why Hamlet is “mad.”  Polonius thinks it is because he is madly in love with Ophelia.  The king arranges the meeting so he can listen in and determine if that is the cause or not.  He says:For we have closely sent for Hamlet hither,That he, as ’twere by accident, may hereAffront Ophelia.Her father and myself (lawful espials)Will so bestow ouselves that, seeing unseen,We may of their encounter frankly judge,And gather by him, as he is behaved,If’t be th’affliction of his love or noThat thus he suffers for.  (Act 3.1.29-37) Thus, she betrays Hamlet by attempting to “play” him as so many others do, unsuccessfully, in the play.
