How is Friar Laurence's decision to leave the tomb without Juliet an emotional decision?
When Friar Laurence comes into the cemetery in Act V, Scene 3, he is immediately worried because he meets Balthasar, Romeo's servant, and sees a light at Capulet's tomb. He knows that Romeo never received the message about the plot to fake Juliet's death. He says,
O, much I fear some ill unthrifty thing.
I hear some noise.—Lady, come from that nest
Of death, contagion, and unnatural sleep.
A greater power than we can contradict
Hath thwarted our intents. Come, come away.
Thy husband in thy bosom there lies dead,
And Paris, too. Come, I’ll dispose of thee
Among a sisterhood of holy nuns.
Stay not to question, for the watch is coming.
Come, go, good Juliet. I dare no longer stay.
