Episode 184

Det. Insp. Thorne arrives to control the handling of the siege, and snipers and gunmen take up position all around the building. Margo tells Wayne she's worried that Bazza will snap and open fire at the slightest provocation. Bea is returned to Wentworth, and Vera asks her if she isn't worried that someone might have taken over while she's away. Georgie is persuaded to carry on with David's classes. The two women react differently to being taken hostage: Mrs Dyson whimpers in a corner while Mrs Mitchell is excited that her shop will get free publicity by appearing on TV, and happily sets about making cups of tea for everyone. The women at Wentworth see the TV report on the siege, but Margo is not identified by name. The police phone the shop and Wayne demands a getaway car. Erica tells Meg that Margo has specifically asked for her as a go-between, and orders her not to take part - in vain. Meg goes into the shop to talk to Margo. Vera lets the women know that it's Margo who's involved in the siege. Mrs Dyson faints and Meg persuades Wayne and Bazza to release her and offers to take her place as a hostage. Meg comes out of the shop with Mrs Dyson and passes on the demands to the police: she goes back in after warning the police about Bazza's edginess. Bazza asks Meg to eat the food she's brought back in first, in case it's been drugged. Erica tells Sally Dean, the new trainee officer that the emphasis at Wentworth is on rehabilitation and introduced her to Vera, who is to supervise her. Vera immediately starts to show off in front of Sally, putting a prisoner on loss of privileges for being in a corridor unaccompanied by an officer. Mrs Mitchell suggests to Wayne that he should phone up a TV station with his demands: he is so amazed to be put straight through to the news room that he increases his demand to $100,000 as well as the getaway car. Vera meets her match in Bea, who manages to convey to Sally who's really running the show without giving Vera any grounds t
