Romeo Avenges Mercutio’s Death
From this moment, which begins Act three, things happen swiftly. We’re back on the streets and Tybalt is spoiling for a fight. Romeo doesn’t take the bait, apparently trying to finesse his way out of the conflict. This enrages Mercutio. With tempers flaring and testosterone seething, things get heated. Mercutio draws his sword an din the scuffle, Tybalt fatally stabs him.
As Mercutio is dying, he jokes while also delivering his famous curse, “A plague a’ both your houses!” Watching his friend die, Romeo issues a retort using his sword and slays Tybalt to avenge his friend’s death. The unthinkable has happened—Romeo has murdered Juliet’s cousin. He quickly escapes the scene, knowing well that the Prince’s punishment now hangs on his head. When the Prince appears and hears conflicting sides of the story, he exiles Romeo to enforce the law and keep the peace.
