To take the plan into action, Juliet drinks a potion that makes her appear dead (Act IV Scene III). She is then put in the tomb where Romeo is supposed to rescue her. Unfortunately, news of the plan never reaches Romeo, and he receives word that she is dead (Act V Scene I). Overwhelmed by grief, Romeo buys poison from an apothecary, and then goes to visit Juliet’s tomb where he encounters Paris (Act V Scene III). After killing the suitor, Romeo sees his lover who he believes to be dead, and drinks the poison.
Also, in the play Romeo dies before Juliet awakens from the coma. When she does awake, Friar Lawrence is there to get her because the police are coming. Instead Juliet sees Romeo and stabs herself. The movie suicide scene is missing Friar Lawrence and Paris. Both in the play and movie the main point is that Romeo and Juliet die because they think the one another is dead.
“Here’s to my love! O the apothecary! The drugs are quick. Thus with a kiss I die” says Romeo Montague (act 5 scene 3 line 119.) This quote is said when Romeo is at Juliet’s grave getting ready to drink the poison because he thinks Juliet is dead and he wants to be with his love forever.
Later on, they decide to get married secretly because of their family rivalry. Friar Lawrence is the character who is most responsible for the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. He came up with the crazy plan that led to their eventual death. Since he didn’t make sure that the information about the plan was delivered to Romeo on time, it caused a lot of confusion. After Juliet woke up and saw that Romeo was dead, Friar Lawrence left her alone in Capulet’s tomb instead of making sure she wouldn’t do anything dangerous.
There are many characters in Romeo and Juliet, but there must be one character who had a big part of why the play went down the way it did. Juliet’s parents are the biggest reason behind why I think it ended the way it did. I also think another character who was apart of why it ended the way it did was Juliet. There are many reasons behind why I thought it was her and her parents. I think that Juliet’s parents were a big part of it because they wouldn’t let Romeo and Juliet be together and they were going to force her to marry Paris.
Death, tragedy, misery, love, and unity, all of these words describe the story of Romeo and Juliet, but it all revolved around Tybalt making his first terrible mistake. In the play Romeo and Juliet written by Shakespeare, the short story is that two young lovers secretly get married, people murder in anger, the two lovers get separated, and then end their lives in a tragic death because of no communication. But, like I said, this all revolves around a mistake Tybalt makes because of the feud between the Capulet (Juliet’s family) and the Montague (Romeo’s family). Tybalt is the character most to blame for the tragic events in Romeo and Juliet because, he killed Mercutio, which lead to Romeo 's banishment, which then leads to the suicides of Romeo
Therefore Romeo kills himself when he sees Juliet’s dead body. When he is about to drink the potion he says, “O my love, my wife! Death, that hath sucked the honey of thy breath”(V. lll.80-81). Romeo then gives up, kisses Juliet’s lips and drinks the poison. As Juliet wakes up she sees the body of her dead husband and commits suicide by pulling out her dagger and stabbing
Therefore, Romeo received information that Juliet was actually dead rather than faking her death. Romeo, acting impulsively and believing the falsification, moved to buy a “cordial poison [to take]/ To Juliet’s grave, for there,” he killed himself (V.ii.90-91). Following that, upon awakening and finding Romeo dead, Juliet did the same. If Juliet never formulated such a fiction, no miscommunication would have occurred, and the pair would not have perished. In addition, as Juliet continued to lie, she was unable to seek counsel from her parents, only from her nurse, which soon too disappeared, and from Friar Lawrence.
In order to try to see Romeo again, and avoid marrying County Paris, a match that her parents set up because they didn’t know about Romeo, Juliet decided to fake her death. She figured that if everybody thought she was dead, then she would be taken to a tomb, and Romeo could meet her there. Romeo was not notified of Juliet faking her death, so when he saw Juliet lying dead at her grave, he was extremely upset. Romeo said that “ I still will stay with thee, And never from this palace of dim night Depart again(Act 5 Scene 3 lines 115-117).” Romeo killed himself, because he was in too much of a rush to wait for Juliet to wake up. Had he actually stayed with Juliet, he would have seen that she was still alive.
In theory, this should have caused Juliet to feel pure hatred towards Romeo. Ironically, Tybalt 's death brought the couple even closer together in love. However, the Capulet family did not know of the secret relationship and wanted to put Romeo to his death. Tybalt 's death affected each member of the Capulet family and moved the plot closer to its tragic ending. As Tybalt 's legacy, Romeo was exiled from Verona, and for a time, could not see Juliet anymore.
