    Peter is not angry with Doreen, and tells her it is his fault that Doreen is in trouble. Bea remembers who Officer Conway is, and tells Janet that she knows she had been a remand prisoner about twelve years previously, though she was eventually found not guilty. Colleen gets impatient waiting for Lizzie, and comes inside, only to overhear her talking to someone: Lizzie tells her that she was only talking to Sid. Colleen later tells Meg about this, and Meg becomes suspicious and challenges Lizzie about Doreen. Meg goes to Sid's house to fetch Doreen, and Peter promises to visit Doreen in Wentworth. Bea blames Doreen for the loss of the day centre project, not to mention deceiving Peter, breaking into Sid's house and putting Lizzie's parole at risk. Bea thinks it's not a good idea to make too much fuss for Lizzie's leaving, in case it encourages her to get back inside again. Phyllis and Hazel want to know what Bea is going to do about Doreen, but she says she doesn't care either way. Officer Conway gets the job of taking Linda through the induction procedure when she is brought back to Wentworth. Judy warns Andrea not to expect Linda to be friendly to her. Linda Joanne Golman is brought to Wentworth charged with grievous bodily harm, kidnapping, four counts of assault and three of attempted murder. Linda blames Andrea that she faces twenty years in prison. Bea tells Linda the truth about how Andrea's been behaving while she was trying to get her out of prison. In a quarrel between Andrea and Linda in the dining room, they tip an urn of boiling water over themselves. Janet is to be the armed guard to take them both to hospital: Meg is indignant that a single officer should be given the job and offers to go with her. Judy accuses Bea of being more interested in the Braille machine than the prisoners' welfare: Bea says that she finally feels she has found something to do that is useful to others. In hospital, Linda sneaks behind Janet, but Andrea calls out and Janet turns round. Linda tries to knock Janet out with her own gun. Linda runs after Andrea, catching her on a fire escape outside the hospital building and threatens to shoot her. Meg tries to calm Linda down, while Jim tries to come up behind her from another direction. Andrea tries get away from Linda's grasp, and in the struggle a shot is fired.
