Which line of dialogue from Act III, scene i of Romeo and Juliet most foreshadows that Mercutio’s death will lead to other tragic events in the story? Benvolio: O Romeo, Romeo! brave Mercutio’s dead; That gallant spirit hath aspir’d the clouds, Romeo: This day’s black fate on more days doth depend; This but begins the woe others must end. Tybalt: Thou wretched boy, that didst consort him here, Shalt with him hence. Prince: Romeo slew him, he slew Mercutio; Who now the price of his dear blood doth owe?
