At the end of “Romeo and Juliet,” a play by William Shakespeare, both Romeo and Juliet kill themselves in sad ways. Just before Juliet’s arranged wedding to Paris, her dead body is found and put in the tomb of the Capulet family. Romeo finds out that she has died, so he goes to Verona to kill himself and die with her.
Romeo meets Paris in the tomb of the Capulet family. They fight, and Romeo ends up killing Paris. Romeo cries over Juliet’s body after Paris dies, but Juliet is only unconscious and Romeo doesn’t know it.
Juliet pretended to be dead so she wouldn’t have to marry Paris. Romeo, on the other hand, didn’t know about Juliet’s plan because the message she sent to him didn’t make it in time. Instead, Romeo found out that Juliet had died after the fact, so he plans to die by her side as a symbol of their love lasting forever.
Romeo takes his poison and dies, but Juliet wakes up soon after and finds Romeo dead by her side. The friar, who helped Romeo and Juliet get married earlier in the play, begs Juliet to run away with him.
Juliet says no, so she takes Romeo’s dagger and kills herself with it. At the end, the two feuding families, the Montagues and the Capulets, come together to mourn the deaths of Romeo and Juliet, who were both young and loved by them.
