Paris taunts him by saying “I do defy thy conjurations. And apprehend thee for a felon here.” (5.3.68-69) . Romeo couldn't stand him “Wilt thou provoke me? Then have at thee boy!” (5.3.70-71). He fights to the death with Paris and Paris loses and lies in the ground dead with a pale face never to be warm again. What was the purpose of Romeo killing Paris? Romeo knew that he was going to kill himself in the first place, but he let Paris get on his nerves and kill him for being a bully. Romeo was sad that Juliet “died”, but he had no right to do away with anyone he he did it all out of self-pity. Yes, his love of his life just died and he never said goodbye, but there are plenty of other girls out there even outside of his village that he could get by. Romeo does not look very innocent, he has messed up so many times no wonder the Capulets don't like his family if he's showing and representing them.

    By my brotherhood,/The letter was not nice, but full of charge,/Of dear import” (5.3.17-19).

    He falls in love with someone he is supposed to hate, he gets caught in a fight and ends up killing someone he considers family and then because of that he gets banished. Where he is banished to is far away from where his true love is. Romeo is not a part of the planning for him and Juliet to be together so he has no idea what is happening even though Friar Lawrence sent a letter. Although the letter was sent Friar Lawrence won’t get Romeo’s reply because “suspecting that we both were in a house where the infectious pestilence did reign, Seal’d up the doors, and would not let us forth, so that my speed to Mantua there was stay’d…I could not send it-here it is again-”(V,ii,9-14). Romeo never received the letter telling him the plan to fake Juliet’s death, so Romeo didn’t know the truth.…

    For example, Romeo was told that Juliet was dead. Little did he know, Juliet was only faking her death in hopes to see Romeo again. He is oblivious to the fact of that so he traveled back to Verona to kill himself. When he’s in the tomb, he sees Juliet in the tomb supposedly dead, but still with life in her cheeks. He didn’t know that it was a sign of life (although he should have), so he drank the poison to kill himself.This was a bad decision because it causes sorrow throughout the Montague family.…

    Romeo is upset that he is banished from Verona, he cannot imagine life without Juliet that he even threatens a dagger upon himself. Romeo says “There is no world without Verona walls/but purgatory torture, hell itself.
