Tybalt ia innocent because Romeo killed Tybalt in revenge of Tybalt killing Mercutio. For example, when Romeo states, "Mercutio's soul is floating right above our heads . He's waiting for you to keep him company on the way up to Heaven..." (III.i.149). Therefore, Romeo is clearly stating that since Tybalt killed Mercutio, then Romeo believes Tybalt will join Mercutio on his way to Heaven. This shows that he is innocent for the death of Romeo because Romeo killed him first and he was not alive to influence the deaths of Romeo and Juliet.
Tybalt is guilty because without Tybalt Romeo wouldn’t have been banned. For example, when Prince states, “and for that crime Romeo is hereby exiled from Verona” (III.i.153). Tybalt is guilty because the whole fight between him and Romeo started because table killed Mercutio. Romeo then stood up for my cushy his honor, killing Tybalt. When Prince found out, he banned Romeo. The banning of Romeo is what led to Juliet and Romeo having to find a way to be together resulting in the death of Romeo. Therefore, if Romeo never killed Mercutio in the fight, Romeo wouldn’t have died.
The Capulet parents are guilty because they put their satisfaction over loving their daughters feelings, which made her risk her life for love. For example, when Lady Capulet states, “do as you please because I am done worrying about you” (III.v.203). In addition, Capulet also states, “if you don’t act as my daughter you can beg starve and die in the streets” (III.v.205). The Capulet parents are guilty because they believe that if Juliet doesn’t listen to what they think is best for her, they will disown her and shut her out of their lives. If her parents would’ve given her support she would not have gone to such extremes to be with the one she truly loves, Romeo. Therefore it is their fault that she killed herself.
Juliet is guilty because she forces Romeo to kill himself. For example, Juliet contemplates if she should take the potion and questions, “… What if the fryer makes the potion to kill me?“(IV.iii.227). This quote proves that Juliet is guilty because she was more concerned about her own self. She wants to be with Romeo and she thinks everyone has disgraced her. When she drinks a potion she made Romeo believe she was dead so he ended up killing himself. Therefore it’s her fault.
Romeo is innocent because he followed the plan to wait in Mantua, but was told incorrect information regarding Juliet. For example, Friar Lawrence says to Romeo, “take a little vacation in Mantua. I’ll find your servant and he’ll update you now and then on your case as it stands here” (III.iii.181). To clarify, Friar is making a plan for Romeo to follow because he’s banished from Verona and he has to leave his wife, Juliet. Friar John talks to Friar Lawrence, and Friar John states, “ I couldn’t send it. Here it is. I couldn’t get a messenger to bring it to you either…“ (V.i.257). To clarify, Friar Lawrence sent a letter to Mantua through Friar John, but the letter wasn’t delivered to Romeo. Since Romeo didn’t receive the letter, he never found Juliet’s plan, therefore he’s innocent because he did what he was told.
Capulet is innocent because he tried to give his child, Juliet, the best life she could have. For example, Capulet states, "Goddamnit! It makes me mad, day and night, hour after afterm all the time, at work, at play, alone in company, my top priority has always been to find her a husband. Now I've provided a husband from a noble family, who is good looking, young, well-educated. He's full of good qualities ... an she refuses!" (III.v.201). This quote proves Capulet is innocent because he is trying to pick her a husband that will take care of her and treat her wlel. He is a goo father and would want her to marry Paris . If she would have married Paris, she would have never been in a situation where she had to choose life or death. But, marrying Romeo is what lead to her death, so this proves Capulet never had anything to do with Juliet's death as he was trying to set her up for a good marriage.
Friar is innocent because he is a man of God and looks for the best solution. For example, when Romeo wants to get married, Friar says, "This marriage may be lucky enough to turn the hatred between your two families into pure love" (II.iii.103). The Friar is innocent because as a man of God, he believes that there is hope for the family feud. He hopes that the marriage would end the feud and the families would be friends again. Therefore, he is innocent because he only wants what is best.
Nurse is innocent because she helps Romeo and Juliet get married. For example, when she talks about Romeo to Juliet and their marriage plans, she states, "He's not the most polite man in the world, but he is gentle as a lamb" (II.v.127). She also helps Romeo and Juliet be married when she states, "Here sir, this is a ring [Juliet] asked me to give you. Hurry up, it's getting late" (III.v.179). These quotes prove Nurse wants Romeo and Juliet to be together because of her helping them.
