    Chrissie is taken to a deserted warehouse to meet Duncan Campbell, who is very displeased when it turns out to be Chrissie rather than Hannah. She tells him Hannah couldn't get away so she took her place, and to stop him turning her over to the police, she tells him she knows where the money is hidden. Bea advises Hannah to inform the police to protect her mother, and Hannah yells to be let out of solitary to see the Governor. Duncan drives Chrissie to Brenda's: his associates snatch Elizabeth at gunpoint, but she is put in the second car, not with Chrissie, and they drive on to Hannah's mother's house. Hannah tells the police where the gang will be going, but refuses to say where the money really is. Brenda phones the police to report the kidnapping of Elizabeth. Duncan sends Chrissie and the two men inside the house to find the money, while he waits in the car with Elizabeth. The men ransack the place while Chrissie urges Mrs Simpson to tell them where the money is . Duncan spots the police arriving and drives off. The police knock on the door, provoking Frank to shoot at them. Chrissie tries to make a break for it when she finds out that Duncan has left with Elizabeth. Benny and Frank also decide to try to get out, using Mrs Simpson as cover, but just at that moment Duncan Campbell phones the house and offers them money to give themselves up and not mention his name. Hannah still refuses to tell Det. Sgt. Park who else was involved in the robbery, even when he threatens to charge her in connection with Elizabeth's abduction. Erica tells Colleen she can't do anything about Joan putting sexual pressure on Hannah if neither she nor Hannah will make an official complaint. However, when Chrissie is brought back to Wentworth Erica refuses to let Joan supervise her shower. Susie offers to work for Des. Joan searches Chrissie's clothes, finds the money hidden in her bra and puts it back. The women in the laundry give Chrissie the cold shoulder. Joan tells Erica she is being set up over the sexual harassment accusation, but Colleen obviously doesn't believe her. Chrissie is on cleaning duty and sneaks up to solitary to speak to Hannah about Duncan, but Steve catches her and sends her away. Susie goes to work on the streets. Judy brings materials for the women to make the soft toys, and drops a hint to Colleen about Joan's crush on Hannah. Des threatens not to supply Donna with any more drugs unless she will get Susie hooked too. Susie gives Donna the money she's earned and Donna tries again to give her pills . Hannah refuses to believe Chrissie's story that Duncan will harm Elizabeth and refuses to tell her where the money is. Joan visits Lizzie in the night (saying she thought she "might be a bit lonely with Lorna in hospital") and gives her a bottle of whisky in return for information about the illegal still . Hannah decides she will give the money back to her father's estate rather than let Duncan have it.
