Just before Romeo and Juliet met, Romeo had an intuition that his life was about to take a tragic turn. In this scene, which is the lovers’ last scene alive together, it is Juliet’s turn to foresee their tragic fate.
One of the Nurse’s roles in Romeo and Juliet is to highlight the development of Juliet’s character. When Romeo is banished, the Nurse suggests that Juliet would be just as happy with Paris, because he’s better looking. Juliet disagrees, which shows that her passion for Romeo is no longer merely physical.
Juliet gives glimpses of her determination, strength, and sober-mindedness, in her earliest scenes, and offers a preview of the woman she will become during the four-day span of Romeo and Juliet. While Lady Capulet proves unable to quiet the Nurse, Juliet succeeds with one word (also in Act 1, scene 3).
