It inevitably ended with them dieing though, because the Friar couldn’t follow the plan all the way through, and didn’t succeed in telling Romeo of the plan.

On the way, Friar John was quarantined due to plague, and didn’t make it. By the time he was let out Balthasar already told Romeo that Juliet was dead. Romeo ended up buying poison to kill himself, and be with Juliet “Her body sleeps in capel 's’ monument, and her immortal part with angels lives”. In the end, Romeo and Juliet 's families came together and finished their fighting. All it took was the death of Romeo and Juliet.
