This is a short answer forum. Juliet will fall into a deep sleep that will leave her lifeless for 48 hours. Her puilse will be undetectable, her blood will flow slowly, her skin will pale, her body will stiffen, and she will be assumed dead.

And this distillèd liquor drink thou off, When presently through all thy veins shall run A cold and drowsy humor, for no pulse Shall keep his native progress, but surcease. No warmth, no breath shall testify thou livest. The roses in thy lips and cheeks shall fade To paly ashes, thy eyes' windows fall Like death when he shuts up the day of life. Each part, deprived of supple government, Shall, stiff and stark and cold, appear like death. And in this borrowed likeness of shrunk death Thou shalt continue two and forty hours, And then awake as from a pleasant sleep.
