What happens to her at the end of the story? When Fagin knew that Nancy's had met Rose and Mr Brownlow on London Bridge. Fagin is enraged, he sent for Bill Sikes. And tells him the story of what happens to him and with that boy which is Oliver. Bill has always been a brutal man, took his pistol and cold-heartedly, he went to see Nancy. On this night Nancy was killed by from Bill Sikes with out any one knowing that except Fagin because he made Bill to kill her. My feeling about Nancy? Nancy on the first of the play or novel I didn't liker her because she tried to get Oliver into trouble and problems. But at the end of novel of the story I notice that she tried to put behind what she did to Oliver. So, I think that I changed my thoughts about her. And I notice is well that she did a very great job to Oliver by telling Mr Brownlow and Rose about the man who tried to kill Oliver and she also gave a lot of information that may affect Oliver's life. ?? ?? ?? ??
