When Romeo said: "Well, Juliet, I will lie with thee tonight,"? he meant to kill himself beside Juliet's body. So, the correct option is C.

In this line, Romeo gets disheartened after finding Juliet in the tomb and assumes her to be dead. So, he decides rather be dead with her, than to live alone in a life without her.

Romeo meant C. He intends to kill himself beside Juliet’s body. It should be remembered that Romeo did not know that Juliet is not truly dead. He was so in love with Juliet that he wanted to be with her even in death. When Juliet woke up hours later, he found Romeo’s dead body beside her. It was then the time when she decided that she wanted to join Romeo in death.

She also killed herself to be with her forever love. This is one tragic story that has been portrayed so many times in plays. From students who wished to show off their talents to actual actors who get paid for their portrayal, this is one story that people are usually familiar with.
