  • Terry is forced to go with "Wacka" and Dinah in his car: two men watching his flat see them drive off. Don is told he has a slipped disc after the accident on building site, and must rest for six weeks. Don asks Chris to call Meg to ask for help. Captain Barton from the Salvation Army comes to visit Lizzie. Terry is taken to see John Fitzwater, who admits he was behind Kathy's death. He believes Terry could of use to him, and wants to know when and how Rosey Quinn will be transferred from Barnhurst to Wentworth. When Terry at first refuses, Fitzwater threatens to have Vera killed. Captain Barton discusses the arrangements for Sid's funeral with Lizzie: she tells him that Sid wouldn't have liked a fuss. Vera shows her more sympathetic side when she gives Lizzie her condolences. Meg is extremely anxious to get Alison released now her husband is unable to work. Inspector Grace is waiting for Terry when he comes home. He says the house Terry was taken to belongs to McNally's gang, and that it is under observation. Terry is also told to pass on the information that Fitzwater asked for. Erica gives Terry a reprimand for his absence from work the day before, reminding him that he is a prison officer, not a policeman. Erica tells Alison about Don's accident at work. Erica suggests Alison contacts the Prison Reform Group to get someone to look after the children while Don is confined to bed. In a bizarre and belated attempt to establish some motive for Terry's change of character, he confronts Vera and tells her he arranged Kathy's death to prove that she knew something about McNally's gang: he also mutters darkly that Kathy was having his child and killed it (i.e. had an abortion?) After this peculiar outpouring, Vera is understandably upset, and tells Meg about Terry's irrational behaviour. She decides to ring Inspector Grace and inform on Terry, but he tells he he already knows and regards Terry as fairly unimportant. Alison's children are temporarily placed in a foster home. The prisoners celebrate when they hear that Vera is leaving Wentworth to become Barnhurst's new Governor. Captain Barton makes a speech at Sid's funeral. Meg discusses Alison's children with Myra Desmond from the PRG and also mentions the plans for a day centre for prisoners. "Wacka" sees Terry talking to Inspector Grace. Officer Powell take Alison to visit Don: Alison tells Don that she wants to get a job to help the family financially when she is released. Myra looks after Alison's children after visiting them with Meg. Bea tries get information from Officer Powell about Vera's replacement, but gets nowhere. Alison's children are curious about Myra's background. Outside prison, Terry tries to make Vera get into his car. They begin to argue and don't notice a car approaching. Someone points a gun at them from the car window.
