  • Willie refers to one of the other prisoners as "Jacko Kennedy" - another case of "sisters" inside Wentworth?

    Daphne finds Jenny sobbing on her bed after her visit from her solicitor. Joan confronts Fellowes: she gives him the prosecution papers in Ruth's case for him to pass on to Arnold Ballinger in return for calling off the contract. Meg is undecided whether to tell Dennis the truth about his condition. Queenie Marshall arrives at Wentworth: she is on a week's sentence for beating up a customer for not paying her (though, as she points out, it was easy as he was already tied up). Nora is told that shooting the terrorist won't affect her parole. When she hears that Mick Kirby, one of the men who could be the father of her child, is coming to visit her, she worries he will try to claim the child. May tries to cheer up Jenny by telling her that she knew her parents (though in fact she only burgled them). Meg is confused that Ettie is now keen to get out of prison. As Joan is sorting through the debris of her burnt out kitchen, she gets a call from Fellowes to tell her that Arnie Ballinger has accepted her terms and she's off the hook. Queenie's brashness and tactlessness annoy Nora and May. Daphne's bouquet for Myra moves Willie to tears. Jenny asks to be allowed to work as she intends to take a more positive attitude. Nora attends Myra's funeral with Ann and is introduced to Geoff . Back at Wentworth, the women remember Myra in their own way. May suggests they have a two minutes silence, which is broken by Joan wanting to know why they aren't working. Geoff tells Ann that Judy couldn't get to the funeral as she's on a promotional tour with Sheila. Jenny plays some Bach, as it was Myra's favourite. Mick talks to Nora when she returns from the funeral: he reassures her he only wants them to live as a family. Nora says she doesn't want to share her child with anyone. Andrew Fry from the Department agrees to the Council's requests if they will sign waivers for compensation over the siege. Queenie recognises him as one of her kinky customers ("Cuddlebums"): he leaves in a hurry refusing to explain to Ann. Lou gets to come to the next Council meeting after suggesting the women do claim for compensation after all. Queenie's description of her brothel inspires Ettie with the idea to set up a home for girls with her money. Meg tries to raise Dennis' spirits as the doctor recommends, but he seems to have given up. Julie worries that her mother isn't answering the phone. Lou warns Lexie not to try to stop her getting a place on the Council. Ann is amazed to get a phone call to tell her that Andrew Fry has resigned. Lexie comes to the rec room after being bashed by Lou. Nora and May go to Lou's cell to pay her back, and in the fight Nora is punched in the stomach .
