  • Sharon sets about attacking Helen again until Judy stops her, as the police arrive to investigate the complaint. Wally takes Ann for dinner in a place which very defintely isn't a veggie restaurant (for all of Ann's talk of "bean curd"). Helen, Sharon and Judy are taking in for questioning. Joan's niece Lucy visits with her boyfriend Wayne, and breaks in when Joan doesn't answer. Sharon is charged with malicious wounding, Helen with kidnapping and Judy with accessory to abduction. Helen refuses bail to stay with her sister but pays Judy's bail. Joan fails to recognise Lucy ("Ted's daughter?") when she returns home and finds her asleep on the front porch. Helen and Sharon are taken to Wentworth and Pixie behaves as if she's shocked when Helen tells her why she been in Wentworth before. Lucy tells Joan she wants to stay with her to give her chance to look for a job, but she has other motives: her boyfriend brings round drugs to hide in Joan's house. He tells her they could set up as dealers if they could get hold of a few hundred dollars. Ann gives the go-ahead to Petra's classes, despite Joan putting in her oar in to say how pointless they have been in the past. Colleen specifically warns Scott about Pixie and her attempts to get out on psyciatric grounds. Petra hears Lizzie mention Scott's name and drops an iron on her foot to get to see him: it is apparent that they know each other intimately and that Petra didn't want him to contact her as she expects to be found guilty so they cannot now get married. Ann is angry with Wally for deceiving her about the events at Driscoll, but he protests that he did only invite her out because he enjoyed her company. Sharon talks loudly in the dining room about the "religious life" to Pixie so Helen can hear. Maxine takes Sharon's side against the oldies. Ann tells Judy she may lose both her jobs and Driscoll House closed down. Sharon rejects Helen and accuses her of only getting involved so she could get hold of her inheritance. Pixie pesters Meg to get to see Scott but overdoes it by mentioning the bells she hears come from Mars: he quips that she's lucky they don't come from Uranus. The women take sides about Sharon - Maxine for Sharon and Lizzie for Helen. Pixie forgets the tablets Scott gave her and returns to the surgery where Scott is just about to kiss Petra, and promptly tells the women what's she's seen. Kay visits Helen to pass on information from an ex Woodridge inmate about Lionel Fellows, and warns that Fellows is out for revenge over the photo of him and Ted Douglas. Lucy cons money out of Joan to buy clothes to make a better impression at interviews, which she hands over to Wayne. Scott tells Judy the truth about his relationship with Petra. Bea tries to talk to Sharon, but when Colleen arrives on the scene just as Sharon attacks Bea, it is Bea who is accused of hitting Sharon. Colleen puts Bea in solitary. Peter comes to Driscoll to tell Judy that Colin Burton has died.
