Summary

Romeo, in Mantua, has not received the letter from Friar Laurence telling him of the Friar’s plan. Instead, Balthasar arrives and tells him of Juliet’s apparent death (only Friar Laurence knows that she’s still alive). Romeo prepares to return to Verona, stopping first to buy some poison from an apothecary.
