She was my favorite throughout the series, for some reason, so of course, I’d research a little bit more about her. Despite how the show portrayed it, Nancy and Johnse were married much longer, about five years, and even had two children together. Shortly after, Johnse left her for another woman. She did, later on, marry Frank Phillips.
I don’t hate Nancy or think she’s a slut for marrying Johnse. I think she had a legitimate attachment to him because they slept together and she probably wanted to be loved like Roseanna was.
She didn’t deserve what Jim Vance did to her, or her brother. She has every right to hate Jim Vance. He killed her father, that probably made her life hell. Then he beat her and had a hand in killing her brother.
