  • Colleen accuses Meg of putting her in a bad light with Erica. Judy thinks can teach herself to use the Braille machine, but Erica tells her it is being moved to Barnhurst. Erica asks Colleen and Meg if they want to apply for a senior officer's post. Doreen gets a letter from an art competition and learns that one of her drawings has got an honourable mention. Judy gets a letter from Lori, where she explains that she has become engaged. Meg tells Judy that Sid's house has burned down. Janet and Meg congratulate Doreen on her success the the picture and Doreen gets permission to see Bea. Meg tells Erica that Lizzie is living with her. Doreen chats with Bea until she gets tired. The doctor tells Erica that Bea needs dialysis. Doreen's divorce from Kevin is finalised. Judy writes to Lori telling her that she must forget her, so that Lori's fiancé will not find out that her mother is in prison. Lizzie returns to Wentworth, charged with arson. Erica tells Lizzie that Bea is ill. Judy steals a letter written by Colleen. Lizzie visits Bea in the infirmary and Bea tells her that Sandy is now top dog. Colleen's letter is read by the prisoners: it is severely critical of the management. The letter is forwarded to a newspaper. Kate gets a visit from her mother and her son: it appears that Kate is indifferent to her son, and it also appears that she murdered her husband for his attitude to her affair. Lizzie watches Kate with her mother and son, and tells Kate that no-one should be separated from their kids in that way. Kate, who is clearly not as innocent as she pretends, loses control for a moment and almost gives the game away, but calms down enough to give Lizzie a satisfactory (but not entirely truthful) explanation.
