  2. well, i'm not sure.
    There wasn't any true reason Paris needed die.
    is it to show Romeo's desperation and love he has for Juliet?
    or is Paris' death linked somehow to the prince - the prince was not involved in the feud yet he was affected too (Paris was related to him), showing the evils of hatred?
