Romeo has a torch with Balthasar and a crowbar to open Juliet’s tomb and kill himself. He arrives at the tomb and Paris is there and willing to fight. They fight and Paris dies. Romeo lays his body next to Juliet and drinks the potion. Friar Lawrence arrives to try and stop Romeo but it’s too late. Juliet wakes up and finds both men dead, and Friar Lawrence is trying to convince her to come with him. Juliet picks up Romeo’s Dagger and stabs herself. All the watchmen, Lady Capulet, Capulet and the captain come and find out what’s happened. The captain shouts “Everyone is punished!”. The capulet plans to erect a gold statue of Juliet and Romeo. The scene ends with the prince saying: “For never was a story of more woe. Than this of Juliet and her Romeo”. I think this finished the story very well as it sums up the whole book in a sentence.

Paris greets her calling her his wife and how he loves her but she keeps dodging the love statements with “That may be sir, when I may be a wife”. Paris kisses Juliet then leaves and Juliet sits down with Friar. Juliet says if he parents make her marry Paris she will use a knife (in her hand) and end her life. She begs for a better solution and Friar comes up with one. He gives Juliet a packet of vial which she should mix with alcohol tomorrow night.

They make some jokes about each other’s sexual organs and the length of them. Eventually, the Nurse arrives with Peter and all the Montague’s make jokes about her physical appearance. In this scene, it really shows the strong relationship between Romeo and Mercutio and I think Shakespeare will write something that will pull them apart a little bit.
