Episode Recap

Joan convinces Fellowes she has a statement from Brenda about Don Baxter's murder which will be handed over to the police in the event that anything happens to her: he tells her he can't even be bothered to have her killed. Even more surprisingly, he agrees to stop the drug trade in Wentworth if Joan will arrange to have Brenda transferred to Barnhurst. Meg visits Ann after finding out about her illness from Colleen. Ann tells her of her fears of cancer caused by her mother's death after a double mastectomy. She adds that her relationship with Wally is over and that she couldn't expect him to want her anyway now. Sonia and Brenda accuse each other of stealing the printing plate when they find it is missing. Joan later lets Brenda know that she took the plate. David tells Sonia to be patient, as he has to deal with Minnie first. Ann sees Dr Bauscomb, who tells her that if a biopsy shows the presence of malignant tissue, it would usually be dealt with by an immediate mastectomy. Bobbie is taken to court, and runs away from her police escort. Joan gives Ann the transfer papers for six women including Brenda. David takes Minnie to the boiler room to show her how he set the others free. Bobbie steals a purse from a woman at a bus stop. Joan finds David about to take Minnie into the boiler room and takes him away to help with the transfers. Joan gives Brenda the plate back before she goes. Dr Bauscomb tells Ann she has to go into hospital for a biopsy. Ann lets Colleen know she will be Acting Governor in her absence. Lizzie waits for her parole hearing: Phyllis comes out having been turned down for hers. Bobbie is caught stealing a Walkman. The chair of the parole board, Sarah Higgins, gives Arthur a grilling. Inspector Thorne reports that there are reports of Mary having been sighted on the Gold Coast, but otherwise there is no proof that any of the missing women left Wentworth, and therefore wants to station police officers inside the prison. Lizzie tries to get sympathy from the parole board over her poor health and weak heart: Sarah Higgins reminds her of her drinking and Nola's murder. Colleen warns Meg they may have to look forward to another Governor being appointed if Ann has to spend a long time in hospital. Joan tells the women that Bobbie is coming back on a six month sentence. Ann pleads with Paul not to tell Wally she's going into hospital. Lizzie is sent out into the garden while the parole board deliberate. Cass is also taken outside for an exercise period all on her own (for no apparent reason). The officers' Union meeting opposes a proposal to bring police officers into Wentworth. Colleen is sent to fetch Lizzie to tell her she has won parole. Lizzie lights a cigarette and drops the match. While trying to stamp out the flames when the match sets fire to some carelessly discarded newspapers, she finds uncovers the hand belonging to a dead body hidden under a pile of leaves. David spots her reaction and pulls a knife on her, saying that there are two bodies and that he "set them free".
