(III II 91-92). She compares Romeo’s physique to a “gorgeous palace” but says that inside it, lives “deceit”. Clearly, there is a negative connotation in Juliet’s words, showing that Romeo is not as he seems. His imperfections are not visible to her at first, and her love for him deceives her into thinking he is a really amazing man. As the story progresses, the mirage that love creates starts fading.
Claudio’s worst offense is when Don John and Borachio play their trick on Hero, making it seem like she was engaging in pre-marital sex.

Although the Friar had had good intentions, his aid only worsened the situation further. The agreement to marry the pair of lovers, sealed their tragic fates in holy matrimony. Shakespeare emphasizes the Friar’s failure in this very decision, further foreshadowing to the audience of a conflict to come as a result of disastrous impetuosity. As in this case, the Friar’s amenable demeanor accompanied his hasty decision, ultimately dooming Romeo and Juliet.

As Frair says, “Young men’s love then lies/Not truly in their hearts, but in their eyes.” (Act II.iii.)

As Friar Laurence says, “In one respect I’ll thy assisnt be,/For this alliance may so happy prove/To turn your households’ rancor to pure love.” (Act II.iii.)
Brutus is also great friends with Caesar himself; meaning, Caesar would never see Brutus betrayal coming. Both of these attributes are seen as very valuable to the conspiracy by Casca.
