Death Strikes Four

Due to Tybalt killing Mercutio, this resulted in the deaths of Mercutio, Lady Montague, Romeo, Juliet, and his own death.

Tybalt is the one to blame for Mercutio, Lady Montague, Romeo, Juliet, and his own death, because after Tybalt killed Mercutio he returned for more to fight furious Romeo. Romeo was a friend of Mercutio and Romeo wanted to avenge Mercutio´s death by killing Tybalt. Romeo fought Tybalt and came out victorious; therefore, Romeo was banished from Verona Italy and to never to return if Romeo came back he would be executed. Mercutio says to Romeo,"...ask for me to-morrow, and you shall find me a grave man"(Act III, Scene 1). After Mercutio dies, Tybalt comes back looking to fight someone else, Romeo steps up and fights Tybalt to avenge Mercutio's death. Romeo says strongly to Tybalt,"Alive in triumph! and Mercutio slain!...Either thou, or I, or both, must go with him"(Act III, Scence 1).

Tybalt is also to blame for Juliet, and Romeo's death. Because of Romeo killing Tybalt, Romeo was banished from Verona Italy and to never return or be executed, Juliet found out about Romeo being banished, she would rather have everyone die than have Romeo banished. Romeo and Juliet were married and loved each other so much they would give up their lives if they were separated. Juliet's father wanted her to marry a man named

Paris, but Juliet was so in love with Romeo she was willing to fake her death to prevent from marrying Paris and running off with Romeo. Juliet's father moved the wedding up a day for Juliet and Paris to get married, came the night of the wedding Juliet took a potion that would leave her asleep for 48 hours. The potion made it seem as if Juliet was really dead it caused discoloration, paleness, and the heart wouldn't beat. Came the day of the funeral people stand there in hurt and sorrow including a friend of Romeo that goes by the name of Balfazar as he witnessed the funeral of the Juilet he immediately went to go tell Romeo the horrible news. As Balfazar entered the home of Romeo's, his body language appeared in hurt, he proceeded and told Romeo that his wife has passed, Romeo his body slumped and his face had fear and hurt. They both returned to Verona and approached the Capulet's tomb. Romeo felt like he should be alone, he entered the tomb and quickly identified Tybalt and his wife next to him, he runs over to Juliet and drops to his knees instantly crying and sobbing. Romeo looked at her and still was amazed how beautiful she was her color was coming back and the paleness was going away, this meant the potion was wearing off. Romeo continued to sob and cry, then he pulled out poison liquid he felt like he couldn't live without his love and nothing would be good, instead he would rather be dead and be with her in heaven than without her alive. Romeo drank the poison and ached instantly and his head fell and his heart stopped, Romeo sacarificed his life for his love. Romeo says,"Arms, take your last embrace. And, lips, O you

The doors of breath, seal with a righteous kiss

A dateless bargain to engrossing death."(Act V, Scene III).

After the potion had worn off of Juliet she had awoken and as she attempted to leave the tomb she came across her deceased husband, Romeo. Juliet immediately stopped in shock and a look of fear came along her body, she sat beside him crying and in pain, she noticed the bottle of poison and tried to drink some to go be with her husband but none was left, she found a dagger and stuck herself in the stomach killing herself just so she could be with her husband Romeo. Juliet says in bravery," O happy dagger, This is thy sheath. There rust and let me die"(Act V, Scene III).

Lastly, Tybalt is to blame for the death of Lady Montage because after Romeo slayed Tybalt this resulted, in the banishment of Romeo. Romeo was the son of Lady Capulet, her death was caused by depression because of her son Romeo being banished from Verona and never to return or be executed. Lady Montague says in fear,"My wife is dead tonight!

Grief of my son's exile hath stopped her breath.(Act V, Scene III).
