Erica tells Meg and Vera that the doctors think Judy's heart condition was brought on by electrical interference from the driers. Meg passes on the information in Judy's letter about her father and Erica is displeased not to have been told before. Bea warns all the women, including Doreen, not to mess up the work release program. Gail is reduced to tears by the women's taunts. Erica finds out that Meg hasn't told her that she's Gail's next door neighbour and says she wants all information on prisoners to be passed to her directly in future.

Gail isn't so sure and wonders if she could be trusted alone with the kids ever again. Doreen is forced to tell Bea what Vince has been doing to her. Captain Barton takes over Gail's case in Paul's absence and suggests she contacts Parents Anonymous. Pauline offers to lend Judy money to help her get the forged papers from a contact she got inside. Tony comes to the prison, having found a job in Adelaide with the chance of a partnership if he can get the money from his father. Meg stops Vera from holding forth on the subject of child abuse by saying that from what she's heard of her childhood her mother's treatment of her would count as mental cruelty. Vera counters with a question: if Meg's own childhood was so wonderful, why does she never speak about it? Flowers arrive for Erica from Andrew. Lizzie finds out from a file on
