I don't think the death of Lady Montague contributes to any gloom. Who cared
about her in the first place? Shakespeare needed her in the first scene to
preserve the balance of of forces as the violence escalates in the hierarchy,
and he doesn't need her in the last scene. He rarely introduces mothers unless
he needs them for some specific circumstance.
