Synopsis

Mr Brownlow and Rose meet with Nancy on London Bridge - but Nancy has been followed by Noah Claypole, who overhears everything she says. Nancy gives a description of Monks and tells them where to find him - at the Three Cripples pub.
Noah returns to Fagin's den and passes on what he has discovered. Fagin spends a long night contemplating the failure of his plans and the danger he and the gang are now in. When Sikes visits Fagin passes on the details of Nancy's actions - including the fact that her first visit to London Bridge was only made possible after Nancy had given Sikes a sleeping draught. Sikes is enraged - and goes home to extract vengeance.
Sikes puts to Nancy what he has learnt from Fagin. Nancy pleads for mercy - saying that she has not acted against anyone but Monks - but Sikes is not interested. He kills her with a blow to the head.
Sikes goes on the run but by the following morning news of Nancy's murder is already spreading. Sikes decides he has no option but to return to London.
Mr Brownlow now has the information he needs to apprehend Monks - which he subsequently arranges. Monks is brought to Mr Brownlow's house where Mr Brownlow begins to reveal what he knows of the plot to disinherit Oliver...including his own connection to the story of Monks and his family.
