Transcript of Friar Lawrence: Guilty or Innocent?
Act II Scene III Romeo - "...please, agree to marry us today." -www.sparknotes.com
Act II Scene VI Lawrence - "May the heavens be happy with this holy act of marriage, so nothing unfortunate happens later to make us regret it."
-www.sparknotes.com In Act IV Scene I , Juliet seeks Friar Lawrence after her father orders her to accept Paris's hand in marriage the following day. She was looking for a way out of her suffering, but Friar Lawrence didn't want her to end her own life. He offers her a sleeping potion, so she can fake her own passing, be placed into the family tomb, and escape in the night to Mantua to be forever with her Romeo. Does this plan scream murder to you?
Act IV Scene I Lawrence - "Then a cold, sleep-inducing drug will run through your veins, and your pulse will stop. Your flesh will be cold, and you’ll stop breathing. The red in your lips and your cheeks will turn pale, and your eyes will shut. It will seem like you’re dead."
-www.sparknotes.com In Act V Scene III , Romeo returns from Mantua believing that his beloved Juliet has actually died. Insane from grief over her mistaken death, Romeo ingests a poison he illegally purchased as he fled Mantua. Friar Lawrence heard the news of Romeo not receiving his letter explaining her faked death, and appears in the Capulet tomb in time for Juliet to wake up. She sees Romeo lying beside her, dead, and and freaks out herself. Lawrence hears a crowd of guards approaching and begs Juliet to flee with him, but she refuses, and uses Romeo's dagger to stab herself in the heart after Lawrence has evacuated the tomb. www.sparknotes.com Conclusion
