Bea has to be restrained from attacking Nola following Paddy's murder. Nola tells Erica she didn't kill Paddy for a reason, she was just the first person to come along. Joan reports Meg's failure to search Barry Simmonds to Mr Douglas, who decides to sack Meg. However, Meg resigns instead. Lizzie overhears Meg and Colleen talking about her sacking, and reports back to Bea, who threatens Erica with big trouble if Meg is dismissed. When Erica dismisses her threats, she takes the women out on strike, and a sit-in in the Rec Room. Bea tells Erica that if Meg goes, then Joan will too, she'll see to it. Judy is relieved when Frances drops the charges against her and goes back to the US. She also gets a new job as Wentworth's careers officer. The points scheme looks set to be abandoned when Lizzie once again tampers with the totals.
