Shortly after their marriage, a brawl erupts between Romeo, Mercutio, and Tybalt with the final result of Mercutio being slain by Tybalt, who is then slain by Romeo. As a punishment, the Prince then publicly announces Romeo’s banishment.

This is Friar Lawrence telling Juliet the plan that will eventually lead to death of the lovers.
