  • Cass spills the milk over Rick when she fumbles the glass when passing it to him: most of it goes on the floor and Harry the cat laps it up. Sonia is displeased, but Gloria can't understand what it was she did that was so bad. Helen finds out Bobbie's Walkman can record and wants to use it to get together with Bert. Inspector Maynard tells Rick that Fellowes knows that Eddie is alive via a "leak" from his Department. Rick points the finger at Mears and Birmingham, but Inspector Maynard says they are still lacking any proof of their corruption. Cass finds Harry dead by the rubbish bins and tells Rick and Gloria. Gloria confronts Sonia and wants to know what it was she gave her to feed to Rick as it certainly wasn't a laxative. Doreen tapes Joan telling her off and taking a week's buyup from her as a punishment The women discuss Cass and Bobbie's crush on Rick. Helen says that neither of them have a chance and Judy reckons there will only be trouble if they compete with each other. Ann tells Rick that Mrs O'Reagan thinks the cat was poisoned so he decides not to eat his dinner. Cass and Bobbie make themselves up with Helen's help and vie for Rick's attentions. Rick challenges Sonia about the poisoning: she challenges him to prove it and vows to get even for Eddie's death. Sarah tells Reb to stay away from her. Joan tells Phyllis she must bash Reb after lights out and that she needn't worry about being found out the following morning as she will be on duty. Meg tells Colleen she must stop drinking or move out: she is further dismayed when Colleen admits that Cass caught her with the flask. Reb realises what is going on when Joan drops in before lights out to make a few more hints to Phyllis. Cass finds her portrait of Rick has been vandalised with drawn on vampire teeth . Phyllis provides sound effects by punching a pillow while Joan is outside the cell and Reb pretends to be in a bad way next morning. Colleen prepares another flask to take to work. Bobbie and Doreen squabble to divert Joan while Helen makes a date with Bert. Doreen is pleased to be taken to the Governor. Sonia's "mother" visits: she is really a contact from Fellowes who tells her she will be sprung from Wentworth during a transfer to Barnhurst. Judy plots with Sarah and offers her the opportunity to get back at Reb: she tells Sarah to let Reb know that the women are going to bash her and frame Sarah for it. Doreen gets to front the VJ at last. Bobbie faints in front of Rick to try to seduce him, but he tells her not to be silly. Cass tries applying makeup on her own but looks in the mirror at her smudged efforts and wipes it off again. Ann catches Colleen having a drink in the staff room. Bobbie tears her clothes and runs to Meg accusing Rick of rape.
