  • Diedre's name is spelt "Deidre".

    Lou sneers at Diedre that she wouldn't dare shoot her, but the gun goes off anyway and wounds Lou in the arm. Diedre drops the gun and Lou gets it back and demands money and a bandage before she leaves. Marlene makes Ray jealous by telling him that Meg and Phil are in love. Joan is scornful of the weak security that allowed Lou to escape from solitary. Her little flesh wound completely forgotten, Lou glams up in some of Diedre's clothes and fools a policeman with her posh accent, despite Diedre knocking over a vase to attract his attention. Stan asks for Ann's support for Bobbie to be released on licence to his and Edie's care. Kerryn faints in the laundry after not eating for several days. Diedre gets $2,000 and refuses to get Lou any more: Lou tells her to drive her to the airport. Stan apologises to Bobbie for not believing her. Marlene asks Ray to help "his girls" by getting goods in, and tries to break his heart with stories of how bad Pixie's hair is without her proper shampoo. Sister Hall recommends calling in a doctor for Kerryn, who is delirious with a fever. Diedre comes to visit Reb and tells her about Lou's visit and passes on the message that Reb should "skin the Rabbit" for her. Reb tells Diedre to go to the police, but Diedre says she can't involve them. Marlene offers a cash prize on a bet on how long Lou can stay out, as an incentive for the women to buy her cheap merchandise. Tim visits Kerryn and says how sorry he is she got into trouble to help him. She sends him away rather than let him admit it was all his fault. Lou makes it to Adelaide and asks a taxi driver for a fancy hotel and a dress shop. Myra is put on garden duty and finds the dope plants under the shed while having a crafty fag. Joan searches Ray when he arrives at work and finds cosmetics on him but he claims they are his. He tells Joan she should try some or maybe she needs "a big strong Russian lover, like a bear". Stan agrees not to report the dope plants when Myra tells him that Bobbie must be involved. Ray turns out to have much more stuff hidden in his jacket, but Marlene manages to hide all of it in her stocking tops. Meg tells Joan there is a new male officer, Lem Murphy, who is being transferred from Woodridge. Reb approaches Alice for her and Frances to join her in a new business venture. Buy-up is restored, to Marlene's disgust, especially since it was largely to her own credit for stopping Lou's escape. Myra takes Bobbie to her cell for a talk, then bashes her to reinforce the message that there are to be no drugs in Wentworth. The women have another softball game, with Stan taking part and surreptitiously clutching his chest. After speaking to Reb, Ann decides to move her in with Myra. Judy is appalled to see what Myra has done to Bobbie and tells Myra she thinks she did it for the sake of her ego and she is no better than the Freak. Mr Colby, the new head of DCS, comes to arrange for Sarah Higgins' admission to Wentworth, apparently at her request due to a previous good working relationship. After the exertion of the softball game, Stan has a heart attack before he can take his pills.
