    Joan puts Cass on a charge and tells her she can forget any involvement with the fete. She also threatens Bobbie that she must come up with the name she needs. Det Crabbe tells Rick that Rachel signs a statement admitting her intention to kill Trevor Priest, and there is no chance of her getting parole. Leigh brings her damaged dresses to the laundry to express her disgust: Pixie picks them up and says she might be able to mend them. Despite Rick's pleas, Ann says that Rachel must go into solitary when she comes to Wentworth. Cass tells the women that she can go to the fete after all. Joyce inducts Rachel, and Rick turns down the chance to take over. Joan heavies Bobbie again for the name: the arrival of Myra, Judy and Cass confirms her suspicion that Pixie made the call. Myra warns her not to take any action against either Bobbie or Pixie. Leigh tells Joan that she suspects it was Reb who slashed her dresses: Phyllis is listening outside the cell. In the shower next morning, Leigh finds oil has been added to her shampoo. Rachel tells Rick she doesn't want him to visit her in Wentworth . Bobbie gets into the store and collects Myra's going away outfit: Reb overhears where the clothes are hidden. Meg tells Ann that as a result of the Departmental inquiry she has been demoted to provisional Deputy Governor, to be reviewed in 3 months. Dennis tells Joan he was impressed by the women's enthusiasm for work, he even found Bobbie "cleaning" the lock on the store room. Myra's dress has disappeared from its hiding place. Joan checks the storeroom, but can't see any obvious clues that anything is missing. Leigh's agent visits her to advise her that advertisers are cancelling contracts, and wants to use the fete to generate more publicity: she tells him she is quitting modelling. Myra goes to Reb for her clothes and finds them slashed, and punches Reb in the stomach. Ann is told about the storeroom and orders a cell search: Bobbie hides the key in the kitchen scraps. Joan finds the clothes in the kitchen garbage and gloats that Meg didn't find the key. Ann refuses to follow Joan's suggestion that the fete is cancelled. Pixie offers to make Myra a dress from the remnants of Leigh's clothes. Ann announces that the fete will not be cancelled but there will be additional security. Bobbie is questioned, and denies knowledge of the key or the missing dress. Joan warns Reb to stay away from Leigh , but she goes straight to Leigh's cell and takes something from her locker. Rick says goodbye to the women and asks Cass and Bobbie to look after Rachel when he's gone. Ann tells Meg that Jonathan's favourable report on Pixie might lead to her release. Leigh uses a lipstick spiked with pins by Reb .
