Romeo and Juliet
Act 4 Scene 3 Anthony Jackson
The Friar had given Juliet a potion to drink that would make it seem as though she was dead so she would not have to marry Paris. However the day of the marriage had been moved from Thursday to Wednesday, this means the Friar would have to change his plan accordingly. This also means Juliet has to drink the potion tonight, so before she drinks it she goes over her fears about the potion. her first fear is that the potion will not work. Her second fear is that Friar made the potion to kill her and get rid of the evidence of him marrying Juliet and Romeo. Her final fear is that Romeo will take too long to get to her in the Capulet tomb. Yet despite all this in the end she takes the potion.
