Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 23
AIRED:
Steve tries to track down Karen's mother to give evidence at the retrial, but she refuses point blank to do so. Lynn and her father make up, and Lynn gets 12 months for her part in the disastrous payroll robbery. Catherine is struggling to settle in with the women; she finds it hard to adjust to their less than refined ways and has to learn the "no lagging" code. In addition to this, Sarah turns up at the prison to moan her parents don't love her. Erica clashes with Vera over her telling the VJ that she and Barbara are related. Erica's ex, Michael, tries to talk her into giving Barbara preferential treatment. Doreen continues to bully Barbara and goads her into a fight, egged on by Vera. Unable to cope any longer, Barbara barricades herself in her cell and threatens to burn the place down.moreless

  • Lynne accepts her sentence, and Barbara goes mental.

    6.5
    Sarah arrives at the prison, and moans that neither of her parents love her, and Catherine finds this difficult to accept, especially as she breaks the no lagging code, and learns the hard way. Karen starts to fear her retrial, as her solicitor tries in vain to persuade her mother to give her a character reference. Erica clashes with Vera over her treatment of Barbara, and later refuses to give Barbara special treatment, when her ex husband Micheal tries to goad her into doing so. Lynne receives a 12 month sentence, and Barbara barricades her in a cell, armed with a lighter, and threatens to burn the place down.moreless
