What is Friar's plan in Act 5 Scene 2?
Sending for a crowbar, Friar Lawrence declares that he will have to rescue Juliet from the tomb on his own. He sends another letter to Romeo to warn him about what has happened, and he plans to keep Juliet in his cell until Romeo arrives.
The friar proposes a plan: Juliet must consent to marry Paris; then, on the night before the wedding, she must drink a sleeping potion that will make her appear to be dead. Juliet will be laid to rest in the Capulet tomb, and the friar will send word to Romeo in Mantua to help him retrieve her when she wakes up.

Friar Laurence discovers that Friar John, the messenger he sent to Mantua with a letter to Romeo explaining that Juliet is alive, has been quarantined because of an outbreak of the plague and prevented from leaving Verona.

He will send word to Romeo that she is actually alive, and after Juliet's family has given her up for dead, she will escape Verona and run away with Romeo. The plan would have worked, if the messenger to Romeo hadn't been delayed.

Summary: Scottish troops, led by Angus, Lennox, and other soldiers, are headed toward Birnam Wood. There, they plan to meet up with Macduff, Malcolm, and their English troops.
