Juliet is dreading marrying Paris. She would rather to be dead than be unfaithful to her husband. She asks Frair for help and he gives her a sleeping position that will make it seem like she is dead for 42 hours. That way when she wakes up, Romeo will be waiting for her so they can leave for Mantua.
Juliet goes back home and agrees to do what her father wants. She also asks to get her outfit ready and they decide to move the wedding to tomorrow. Juliet only does this so her plan will work and she can see Romeo again.
Juliet is worried about taking the sleeping position. She thinks about all the things that could go wrong. However, when she dreamt about Romeo she had no more fear and drank what was in the veil.
The Capulets are preparing for the wedding that day. They are making sure everything is in order and that they have the best cooks available. Capulet then sends the Nurse to go wake up Juliet while he talks with Paris.
The Nurse finds Juliet 'dead' and calls for help. Everyone rushes in once they hear the commotion. They all grieved once they saw Juliet. The Friar, who knows she is not dead, suggested to carry out the funeral as tradition.
