  • Reb tells Myra her days are numbered. Joan catches Cass as she is moving in on Bobbie: Pixie is relieved to see Bobbie still in one piece, and Cass is now back to normal, but is bewildered that Cass seems not to know anything about the attack on her. Jonathan agrees to talk to Pixie after Erica suggests she is the obvious person for him. Hannah tells Judy and Myra that Joan reminds her of a Nazi officer and that was why she got her nightmare confused with reality. Colleen walks into the staff room to find Jonathan in the act of kissing Meg, and raises the question for Meg as to what Jonathan will do when his work at Wentworth is over. Lou nudges Hannah into ripping the billiard table: Myra pins her to the table with a cue. Klaus Werner from the German Consulate advises Ann that Hannah has to be deported because she is not eligible for refugee status as she entered the country on a (false) West German passport. Pixie stays close to Bobbie, making Judy suspicious that she knows something. Hannah is appalled to be told she has to go back to Germany, even when she is told she is going to West Germany. Colleen admits to Meg that she's a bit worried at the prospect of open days for the prisoners. Ann drops a hint to Meg to contact the press about Hannah, saying that if anyone were to make an anonymous call there wouldn't be much she could do about it. When Judy asks to see Ann about Hannah, Ann pointedly tells her no-one is to contact the press about Hannah's case, and especially not Camilla Wells. Colleen supervises the call and stops her talking when the realises who she is talking to. Colleen tells Meg about stopping the call and complains to Ann that the women are being encouraged to break the rules. Someone nevertheless contacts a newspaper reporter, Steve Lockhart. Rick gives Rachel the highly rare record of the Beach Boys "Live in London". Pixie gives up marriage after talking to Dr Edmunds. Rick and Rachel get serious and go out on a date to see some terrible old films. When Pixie asks Cass if she was talking to Bobbie when she was attacked, Cass has a flashback and remembers strangling Pixie. Hannah wakes up screaming and attacks Joan when she goes to see what the trouble is: Colleen is amazed that Joan does not want to report the incident. Ann embarrasses Colleen when she lets slip that she is also being courted by Jonathan. After Hannah's story makes the front page , Ann tells the officers that she expects to be told who leaked Hannah's story to the press. Jonathan sees Phyllis again and changes her back to her usual nasty self. Hannah deliberately taunts Lou and Frances to get herself bashed. When Meg makes flattering remarks about Jonathan, Colleen says she hopes she isn't getting too attached to him and tells Meg that Jonathan is also seeing Ann. Meg goes to Jonathan's office to confront him: he tries to persuade her he isn't really serious about Ann, but Ann walks in and Meg leaves hurriedly. Hannah's deportation is postponed for up to two weeks to allow her to recover .
