    Mercutio's death alters the path of the plot entirely. Prior to that point the play was reasonably light hearted. Afterwards the story takes a dark turn, it is the pivotal moment from which the story heads into a downward spiral, eventually leading to the tragic ending. There is a domino effect occurring which originates from the death of Mercutio. You could call him a catalyst.

    To make us feel empathy for Romeo as the gentle, kind, lover.
