  • Doreen's list of possible Wentworth re-entry tactics include some she didn't get round to, like "MUGGING" and "DANGEROUS DRIVING".

    Judy tries to wake Meg. Joan returns to work and is warned not to take revenge for her father's kidnapping. Judy and Cass get lost following Phyllis. Joan gloats over Sonia in the infirmary and hints she should keep a look-out for more snakes. Sonia begs Myra for help when she comes into the infirmary to deliver her meal. Doreen returns to visit her old pals , but Helen is the only one left. Sonia assures Ann she is feeling well enough to go back with the women, and asks to share with Myra. Doreen tells Helen she is getting married to a friend so he can stay in Australia: Helen inadvertently gives her the idea of getting back inside to avoid her prospective fiance, who is getting too serious. Meg comes round and phones Ann to say all the women have escaped. Ann immediately phones the police. Doreen sees Joan as she is leaving and is amazed how she could ever have forgotten she was at Wentworth. Cass and Judy find a tin hut in the woods. Myra agrees to share with Sonia, and thinks she may be able to help her. Helen passes on the news to Myra about the singing group's failure to return, but is disappointed by Myra's willingness to help Sonia. Sonia tells Myra about her lover Nick who punched her in the stomach when she was seven months pregnant after she refused to have an abortion. Meg persuades Colleen to see her doctor when she says she can't face her own. Bobbie and Minnie wake up in a haycart : Minnie agrees to let Bobbie have one day on the outside before they turn themselves in. Joan can hardly disguise her delight that Ann and Meg are in trouble with the Department over the escape and comments acidly that it's just as well there are a few people around who know how to do their job. Probably for lack of anyone else to do so, Ruth pipes up with an opinion for once, as says she's disgusted with the women who've escaped. Judy's pace-maker starts to go wrong: Cass leaves her to try to get to a phone, but returns at gunpoint when Phyllis arrives at the hut with Cheryl. Phyllis sends Cass off to get money and food. Minnie lifts a man's wallet, but he only has 3 dollars in cash. Reb knocks Kevin out and continues alone, transferring to a stolen motorbike when she hears there's a road block ahead. Doreen tells Helen she's going to try going back inside. Reb drives past a police officer who recognises the bike as stolen and gives chase. Minnie and Bobbie win money on the bingo and decide to spend it on drink. Doreen solicits outside a police station, but still can't get arrested. Minnie and Bobbie get a taxi back to Wentworth, still drunk. Sonia finds a doll on her bed, put there by Joan: Myra arrives and threatens Joan, slamming her against a locker and grabbing her in a choke hold.
