    Phyllis finds herself using the same bar of soap in the showers . Meg reports the incident to Ann and passes on her suspicion that it was an attempt to injure Sonia, possibly because the women have realised who she is and why she is inside. Lizzie gets another telegram: Mick has moved his trip forward and is due to arrive in four days. Sonia turns on the charm for Ann to avoid having to take up her offer to be moved to isolation. Eddie visits and tells Sonia he is having no luck proving her claim of a frame-up and challenges her over Jerry. She pretends she has no idea who Jerry is. Hazel sees her husband and kids for the last time when they arrange to meet in a park . Sonia phones Jerry and tells him she wants to be got out of Wentworth straight away: he visits and slips her some money in a glossy magazine after Joyce Barry has searched it. Sonia bluntly proposes a business deal to Joan to help her escape, and threatens to harm her dog if she will not co-operate. Sonia knocks over an ashtray so that Bea will take a swipe at her just as Joan walks in so that Joan will put her on a charge. Helen sees her solicitor: she is told Sharon will be called to testify against her and warned that the shortest sentence she can expect will be six months. Wally visits Mrs Beeton to find out some dirt about Rod. Randi explains to Meg why she prefers prostitution to office work. Wally visits Rosemary to tell her that he's found out something about Rod that might help get her released. Joan tells Sonia the escape has been arranged: she will go out through the loading bay but only if Joan gets immediate payment. Next morning, Joan casually mentions to Sonia that Jerry has been shot and killed by the police and their stash of money recovered. Wally tells Rod that one of his ex girlfriends has informed on him about his theft of goods from the supermarket: this has the desired effect of making Rod drop charges against Rosemary. Rosemary is released and Wally promises to find her a place to live and a job. Pixie gives Rosemary a personal ad to place in the newspaper on her behalf. Joan distracts Colleen while Sonia hides in the laundry van, then stops the van and embarrasses both Colleen and Sonia by pulling open the laundry sack where Sonia is hiding .
