When we last saw Romeo he was at his wedding to Juliet. The audience is hopeful after this, because it finally looks like things are going well between the two of them and it looks like things will turn out alright. As Romeo enters we see that he is the reason Tybalt has come. Tybalt tries to start a fight with Romeo but Romeo tries to talk his way out of it. He uses love related words whilst talking to Tybalt like “The reason that I have to love thee/Doth much excuse thy appertaining rage” and “but love thee better than thou can’st devise”. He also drops a lot of hints about the fact that he is now part of Tybalt’s family, such as “Good Capulet Which name I tender/As dearly as my own”. In response to this Tybalt is not pleased and replies to Romeo with comments like “Thou art a Villain”. Tybalt is also very determined to have a fight with Romeo and uses every opportunity to tell him to “turn and draw”. Mercutio is disgusted at how cowardly Romeo is being through all of this and doesn’t understand why he keeps walking away from Tybalt instead of fighting him. Mercutio is just as

In Act III, scene 3 of Romeo and Juliet, Friar Laurence informs Romeo that the Prince has decided to punish him with banishment from Verona. Instead of feeling joyful of escaping capital punishment, Romeo mourns over the fact that he could never see Juliet again. While the two discuss the Prince's decision, the Nurse arrives and tells Romeo that Juliet is also heartbroken over Tybalt's death. Guilty of hurting Juliet, Romeo threatens to commit suicide.

Romeo’s speech identifies to the audience for the first time, how Romeo feels about Juliet. That Juliet’s beauty is unmatched by those in the room and that Romeo has never loved before but he now thinks he has found her, Juliet the one.
