Romeo refuses to fight Tybalt, so Mercutio fights instead. Tybalt kills Mercutio. Romeo kills Tybalt and runs away, and Prince Escalus demands Romeo's exile from Verona. The Nurse tells Juliet that Romeo has killed Tybalt and is sentenced to exile, but she will make sure Romeo comes to Juliet for their wedding night. The Nurse gives Romeo a ring from Juliet. Friar Lawrence suggests Romeo spend the night with Juliet and then flee to Mantua, and perhaps Prince Escalus will change his mind. The Capulets promise Paris that Juliet will marry him in three days. Romeo leaves Juliet after their wedding night. The Capulets order Juliet to marry Paris, and Juliet heads to Friar Lawrence to see if he can help.
