Romeo and Juliet--Please, help me!

Shakespeare also deviates from Aristotle's idea about the hero's recognition of the whole tragic situation. In Romeo and Juliet, it is not the hero Romeo who experiences recognition, both other characters in the play. Who are they and when does the recognition occur?
