Rose is wondering what course of action to take - and whether to call upon Harry - when Oliver bursts in with the news that he has seen Mr Brownlow. Rose and Oliver travel to Mr Brownlow's house and she tells him all that has happened.
That night Mr Brownlow comes to visit at the hotel. He and Dr Losberne discuss the best means by which to proceed with Nancy in order to apprehend Monks.
Meanwhile Noah Claypole - once Oliver's colleague at Mr Sowerberry's, the undertaker, is making his way to London having robbed his master. He and his companion, Charlotte, stop at the Three Cripples Inn, where they are quickly ensnared by Fagin and return to his den with him. Here they learn that the Artful Dodger has been captured and will, more than likely, be 'transported'.
The scene changes to the home of Sikes and Nancy. It is 11.30 on Sunday evening and Nancy is agitated because she has been unable to make her planned walk to London Bridge to speak with Brownlow and Rose. Fagin makes a brief visit and having noted Nancy's state wonders whether she may have tired of Sikes's brutality and wish to be rid of him - something that would suit Fagin also.
Fagin determines that his first task for Noah (now known as Bolter) will be 'dodge' Nancy - that is, trail her. The following Sunday evening Noah follows Nancy to London Bridge late in the evening and hides while she meets with Brownlow and Rose. What is the unsuspecting Nancy about to reveal?
