Unfortunately, the fighting gets worse and Mercutio (Montague) , a good friend of Romeos, ends up in a fight with Tybalt (Capulet), Juliets cousin. Tybalt kills Mercutio, which causes Romeo to kill Tybalt in an angry rage. For this, Romeo is banished from Verona.At the same time, the Capulets are planning Juliets marriage to Paris. Juliet does not want to marry this man so she arranges with Friar Lawrence to fake her own death with a sleeping potion that will make everyone think that she is dead. Friar Lawrence promises to send word to Romeo to meet her when the potion wears off and to rescue her to Mantua, where Romeo is currently staying. There they would live happily ever after. Unfortunately, Romeo does not receive this message on time and upon hearing of her ""death"" goes to Juliets tomb where he drinks poison and dies. When Juliets potion wears off, she woke to find her lovers corpse. She then proceeds to stab herself with Romeos dagger.
