  • Jim returns to work after a week's holiday. Joyce Barry shows Jim the drawing, and it has the same effect on him as it did on Janet. Erica is discussing the newspaper article with Ted Douglas when Jim bursts into the office. Mr. Douglas insists on stricter security measures based on Gillespie's recommendations, and says that two new officers are coming to help carry out the new regulations. Doreen visits Bea in sickbay to try to find out from Bea indirectly how crucial it is that she gets a new kidney. Jim blames Janet for encouraging Doreen's artistic talents. Doreen tells Judy that she could donate a kidney for Bea, but is afraid and doesn't want to do it. She also asks Kate for advice. Kate lets slip in front of the other prisoners that Doreen could be a kidney donor: Judy tries to shut Kate up, but the damage has already been done. Sandy is visited by Inspector Grace, but he can get absolutely nothing out of her. Lizzie tricks Mrs. O'Reagan in the kitchen into signing a piece of paper. Lizzie gives Kate a doll she has made to give to her son. Kate thanks her for it, but when Lizzie goes Kate gives it to Sister Franklin. Judy steals a requisition form from reception. When Doreen comes on visit, Bea tells her that she knows about the test results and says that she'll still be friends with Doreen even if she decides not to donate a kidney. Bea finds out that Sister Franklin has got Lizzie's doll. Lizzie hides the requisition in between the other orders. Kate tells Bea that her son has so many toys that Sister Franklin's kids will value the doll much more than he would. Doreen tells Judy and Sandy that she has decided to go ahead and have the operation to donate a kidney to Bea. Kate's lawyer visits her: he says that he has found some major discrepancies in her accounts. Colleen tries to force Sandy to tell her where the letter is hidden, but Sandy just laughs at her.
