Episode 196

The corridors are silent when Jim and Colleen check up later, though the din resumes after their dialogue. The women are taken for their showers a few at a time next morning and are then locked back in their cells. Chrissie tells Meg that the only way she can get Elizabeth back now is to earn a little money on her own account: she goes for a job in a restaurant, but the owner sees through her claim to have references from New Zealand. Lizzie tells Bea she's too old to get involved in any protests. Meanwhile, Doreen is trying to calm down Judy by telling her that Bea has everything under control. After seeing an article in the paper, Chrissie's brother Derek calls on Meg to ask if he can help Chrissie, as he feels he let her down when they were kids: he offers to have Chrissie and Elizabeth live with him and his wife. Erica proposes to the officers that a round table discussion with the inmates might help, but Colleen demands that the officers are armed. The meeting goes ahead in the rec room: Bea gives a list of their demands but when they get nowhere and try to leave the officers shoulder their arms. Bea demands an outdoor exercise period when Erica tries to call a halt to the meeting. Chrissie calls at the home to see Elizabeth and finds Derek has traced her there : he tells her he can help her get permanent custody of Elizabeth. Chrissie wants to know why he didn't come forward earlier and he tells her it was because he couldn't support the accusations of incest she made against their father, who is now dying of cancer. When Chrissie finds her father is staying with Derek and his wife, she turns down the offer to go and live with them. The women go back inside unwillingly after a short exercise period. Lizzie is taken ill, and Judy injures Officer Barry when she pushes her aside while trying to help Lizzie. When Colleen sees that Jim does not punish Judy, she tells him that if there is any more danger to the officers, she will call them all out on strike. Erica t
