Analysis & Themes
Juliet begs nightfall to hurry in its coming, and to bring Romeo with it. She imagines that when she dies Romeo will be immortalized as stars in heaven.
The Nurse runs in crying and shouting "He's dead!" (3.2.36). Juliet thinks Romeo has killed himself, and threatens to kill herself.
The Nurse in her grief starts calling out Tybalt's name. Juliet realizes there's been a mistake. The Nurse tells her Romeo killed Tybalt and has been banished. Juliet laments that Romeo could seem such an angel and be such a devil. The Nurse curses him. But Juliet cuts the Nurse off, and chides herself for speaking ill of Romeo. Romeo is her husband, and her loyalty and love are with him.
