Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 379
AIRED:
Pixie arrives in Wentworth, and is a big hit with the other women. The women give her the idea of claiming temporary insanity, when her lawyer tells her she will never get off. She fakes a faint, and later pretends to be Joan of Arc in front of an unimpressed Colleen. Meg gets Laura to admit where they met before. She has been saving her medication and tries to take an overdose, but when it doesn't work she slashes her wrists with a broken bottle. Lizzie finds her and calls for help: she is rushed to hospital. Bea upsets Roxy with her criticism. Paul Reynolds helps Wally move in. He's a photographer, snaps the Wentworth women when he visits, and sends in a box of photos for the cells. Paul is excited by a photo in the paper of crime boss Lionel Fellowes, realising he too has a picture of him. Ann is horrified to recognize the man Fellowes is with in Paul's photo: it's Ted Douglas.moreless

  • Paul Reynolds finds a conspiracy going on....

    8.0
    As Pixie is detained in Wentworth on four counts of bigamy and two counts of fraud she learns she will not be acquitted, and she becomes a source of entertainment to the women with her views of rose coloured Pixie World. A delirious Brandy is rushed to hospital after cutting herself, muttering about Laura being murdered. Ann finds herself embroiled in a conspiracy when her son Paul shows her a photograph of crime boss Lionel Fellows handing over an envelope to her boss, Ted Douglas. Hilarious scene where Pixie innocently tells Joan she "simply has not met the right man yet"moreless

    • I don't want to rave on too much about Pixie, but she's still fab even behind bars. Lizzie's reaction to meeting her (rushing her to the Laundry to show her off to the others, declaring they'll never believe this) is wonderful. Colleen gets a great moment too, reacting deadpan to her pretending to be Joan of Arc, while Joan is all eyeball-rolly. Fab fab fab.

      First appearance of Paul Reynolds, Ann's son, who appears to be wearing jeans and a dressing gown when he helps Wally move in. Um, why?

      First mention of Lionel Fellowes; Phyl and Roxy helpfully set up his character for us, explaining how he fits in with the former drug barons, the McNallys. And after all those lame-ass cliffhangers lately, this one's a peach: bam! Ted Douglas is a crim! Completely out of nowhere at all!
