Best Answer

In a word, yes. To quote directly from the final chapter of the book, in which Ralph mulled his situation over in his mind... He argued unconvincingly that they would let him alone; perhaps even make an outlaw of him. But then the fatal unreasoning knowledge came to him again. The breaking of the conch and the deaths of Piggy and Simon lay over the island like a vapour. These painted savages would go further and further. Then there was that indefinable connection between himself and Jack; who would never let him alone; never.

How can the ending can be changed in the movie versions of Lord of the Flies?

There are many possible ending which could have been used in either of the movie versions to change them from the endings which were actually used (essentialy the same ending as the novel). For example Jack and his hunters could have killed Ralph. Alternatively Ralph could have killed Jack and then the hunters could either have adopted Ralph as their rightful leader or killed him in revenge. The entire island could have burned and killed all, or some, of the boys.

What has Roger prepared for Ralph?

Roger has prepared a stick sharpened at both ends for Ralph. This means that he has the same end in mind for Ralph as the sow (female pig).

This is a thinly vailed threat on Roger's part.
