The Nurse runs in crying and shouting “He’s dead!”. Juliet thinks Romeo has killed himself, and threatens to kill herself.
 
SCENE 3:
 
In Friar Lawrence’s cell, Romeo is overcome with grief and he is in wonder about what the Prince has decreed. Friar Lawrence tells him that he is lucky because the Prince has only banished him. On the other hand, Romeo believes that it is much worse than death because he will have to live without Juliet. The Friar tries to counsel Romeo but he is so sad that he will have none of it. Romeo falls to the floor. When the Nurse arrives, Romeo desperately asks her for news of Juliet. He presumes that Juliet now thinks of him as a murderer and threatens to stab himself, but Friar Lawrence doesn’t let him do it and scolds him for being unmanly. He tries to explain that Romeo has much to be grateful, because he and Juliet are both alive, and after matters have calmed down, it is possible for Prince Escalus to change his mind. The Friar sets forth a plan. According to this plan, Romeo will visit Juliet that night, but make sure to leave her chamber, and Verona, before the morning. He will then reside in Mantua until the news of their marriage can be spread. The Nurse gives Romeo the ring from Juliet. This is physical symbol of their love and it revives his spirits. The Nurse departs, and Romeo bids Friar Lawrence farewell. He must prepare to visit Juliet and then flee to Mantua.
 
SCENE 4:
 

It is just before dawn. Capulet, Lady Capulet, and Paris have stayed up late, discussing Juliet and the tragedy of Tybalt’s death. Paris turns to go, but Capulet suddenly calls him back. Capulet says he wants Paris and Juliet to marry, and thinks her heart “will be ruled in all respects by me” (3.4.14). He suggests the marriage be held on Wednesday. Then, realizing its Monday, he says Wednesday’s too soon and moves the Wedding back to Thursday. Paris is overjoyed. Capulet instructs Lady Capulet to tell Juliet about her imminent wedding.

 

SCENE 5:

 

Romeo and Juliet are in Juliet's chamber after their consummation arguing over whether it is still night or if it is the morning.  The Nurse warns them that Lady Capulet is coming.  Romeo and Juliet part wondering if they will ever see each other again.  Lady Capulet sees that Juliet is upset and mistakes it for grievance of Tybalt.  She tries to cheer Juliet by telling her that she will marry Paris on Thursday.  Juliet abhors the idea of marrying so soon.  When Old Capulet finds out that Juliet does not want to marry Paris he feels unappreciated and his temper rages.  He tells Juliet that she better marry Paris or he never wants to see her again.  Juliet seeks comfort in her mother but she is refused.  The Nurse even suggests that Juliet forget about Romeo and try to live a normal life with Paris.  Juliet, seeking a way out, goes to visit the Friar.

Romeo wants to blame fortune for the two deaths that have just occurred, rather than to think about what he could have done to stop them occurring. The way in which the play is written perhaps makes us more sympathetic towards Romeo, because we know that he has just married Juliet, whilst the characters on stage do not.

Romeo could have acted in a more sensible way to Tybalt's challenge, instead of coming out with the words which provoked Mercutio into violence. His intervention between Mercutio and Tybalt may have caused his friend's death. His attempts to remain loyal to both his friends and his wife Juliet, were doomed to failure.

To me, Romeo was unconscious when he killed Tybalt, so we mustn't blame him.He acted in a sensitive as medine said but poor Romeo he did what he didn't want.
