EDIT
Episode 81
AIRED:
Greg suspects that Ros has been drugged when nobody can wake her after her collapse. Janet's appeal is turned down, so the escape will go ahead. Bea wants to know what Ros and Kath are up to, so Lizzie offers to try and get moved into their cell to snoop. Kath worries the terrorists will kill anyone who gets in the way of the escape. Meg tells Jim that Leila tried to warn her off Geoff, and later tells Geoff she doesn't want a relationship with him. Geoff wants Jim to go overseas with him to become a mercenary. Later, while at the pub with Jim, a man hits on Geoff so he beats him senseless in the toilets.moreless

  • Geoff's true colours begin to show, and Kath's fears escalate.

    8.5
    A docile Ros is asleep in her cell, unable to be roused, and Greg believes her to be drugged, which causes the rumour mill to turn. Janet is furious as her appeal is rejected and vows the escape will go ahead, but Kath is terrified that the impending arrival of the terrorists would spell disaster, and massacre to all involved. Meg breaks Geoff's heart by rejecting his advances more, and tells him that Leila had warned her about him, and Geoff is determined to recruit Jim as a mercenery, and his true colours show when he bashes a homosexual man in the toilets of a nearby pub.moreless
