    Myra looks for volunteers to help with the fete. Pixie decides to tell fortunes. Bobbie tells the women she's pregnant. Ann throws a leaving party for Colleen. The women make pots for the fete. Phyllis points out that Bobbie's baby will be taken away from her when she is two. No-one talks to Joan at Colleen's leaving party. Cass finds Bobbie reading Dr Spock, and apologises to Bobbie. Joan is already feeling very tense when Colleen spills a glass of wine over her: she storms out, believing it to deliberate. Bobbie starts to get a bit irritated by Cass's overprotectiveness, and a bit dismayed by her news that she's asked to share her cell. Hannah is told her cousin has been traced and will help her raise money for her return. Joan is shown a newspaper article by Camilla Wells opposing her appointment as Deputy Governor: Ann says (perhaps ambiguously) that she doesn't think it will affect the Department's decision either way. Myra gets a letter telling her Kay has been in hospital with an overdose and suspected hepatitis after taking drugs. She asks Ann for day release to see her: Ann tells her there is little chance of this, but she will contact Wally to go and visit. Peter Secker arrives to see Hannah. Judy says goodbye to Hannah on behalf of the women. Colleen takes Hannah to the visiting suite: Hannah's visitor threatens her (in German) and pulls a gun on Colleen, taking her hostage as he chases Hannah . Joan is knocked out when she tries to trip him up. Hannah runs into the laundry and begs the women to hide her: they put her in the drier. Hannah's real cousin arrives with his wife . Ruth is shot when the women try to disarm the Nazi madman. Meg reports finding Joan unconscious, and Ann calls in the police. Colleen and the women try to talk the gunmen into giving himself up, but he says if they don't tell him where Hannah is, he will shoot them one by one. Taking the advice of the special officers called in to break the deadlock, Ann uses the PA to urge Secker to give himself up, but he grabs Bobbie and holds a gun at her head. Judy reveals Hannah's hiding place by opening the drier door a little. Colleen distracts Secker to let Hannah make a getaway. Secker chases Hannah through the corridors but he is shot by the special police team. Colleen says goodbye to the women and promises to send them a postcard. Hannah meets her real relatives before she is taken to the airport. Joan questions the women to try to find out who contacted Camilla Wells, as she wants to know who to "thank" for the write up in the paper. Meg tells Colleen she heard one of the women say it won't be the same without "old Poface". Joan and Meg are called over the intercom to the Governor's office: Colleen wryly wishes them both good luck. Meg is told she is the new Deputy Governor: Joan is crest-fallen. Colleen leaves Wentworth . Judy tries to reassure Myra she hasn't wasted her life and isn't a bad mother, but she tells Judy she is planning to escape to help Kay.
