    Bea stops Phyllis going to bash Sonia, and declares a war of nerves instead. Wally asks Ann to help Rosemary, who has refused to let him stand bail for her and will be sent to Wentworth. Judy finds Hazel in a caravan park and manages to get her to open the door and let her in to talk. Sonia tries to recruit Petra to back her up, but she refuses. Judy asks Hazel why she left the halfway house: Hazel tells her she has an inoperable brain tumour. Rosemary is brought to Wentworth in a state of shock and protesting her innocence. Judy wants Hazel to stay at Wentworth rather than go back to hospital, despite Wally's advice that she doesn't have the training or facilities to care for her properly. Ann tells Colleen that there has been a Departmental directive that Sonia is to have unlimited visitors. Scott tells Judy there is no hope for Hazel, and she will deteriorate gradually until she loses her faculties one by one. Sonia's next visitor is her associate (and lover) Jerry Turner : she tells him she plans to escape and wants to go away with him. Pixie fills Rosemary in on who's who and only manages to alarm her further when she tells her what most of the other inmates are inside for. Bea puts Sonia to work operating the sewing machine, and Phyllis jabs her hand with the needle. Noticing her clenched teeth composure when Colleen sends her to the infirmary, Bea predicts that Sonia won't be a push-over. Bette complains to Judy about Hazel getting favourable treatment, so she has to tell her the reason for Hazel's stay, but this only makes the women exaggeratedly solicitous towards Hazel and she notices the change in their attitude towards her. Randi starts work in reception. Judy asks Ann to let Hazel visit her friends in Wentworth. Joan persecutes Rosemary when she finds her alone in her cell writing to her father. To give Rosemary something more productive to do, she messes up her cell and tells her to tidy it up. Hazel turns on Judy for confiscating her pills , as she has started to take them above the recommended dosage. Phyllis and Frances trash Sonia's cell: Joan fetches Sonia from the laundry and orders her to clear it up. Bea salts Sonia's food, so she swaps her plate with Rosemary's. Bea leaves it for a moment to see if Rosemary will stand up for herself and when she doesn't, she retaliates by stubbing a cigarette out in Sonia's dinner . Sonia sees Phyllis in her cell and checks her things, finding her soap spiked with hidden razor blades.
