Friar Lawrence, in this play, helps Romeo to fulfill his desires of marrying Juliet and always has good intentions for Romeo. In the second act, Romeo was in a hurry to marry Juliet, and he pleads with the Friar to conduct their marriage as Romeo was in "haste". Friar Lawrence agrees to this plea, in the hope that the feud between the Capulets and the Montagues would end and that the marriage will bring the families to make peace with each other.

The Friar helps Juliet fake her death and fool her parents.

Some may say that the families and the prince were responsible for the tragedy, but the one who should have most of the blame is friar Lawrence.

However it is Juliet, who informs him that the bird “that sings so out of tune”, is a lark, not a nightingale and thus it are dawn and Romeo must flee. This image can also convey a sense of unease as we the audience understand the tragedy before it unfolds As Romeo hurries away, Juliet begs fate to bring him back to her quickly.
