The strike continues, but the women are fed up. Erica talks Mr Douglas into letting Meg stay, but Douglas refuses to do anything about Joan. Nola protests against being kept in Solitary, despite Erica's insistence it is for her own good. Bea and the girls carry out a threat campaign against her; Joan makes it clear she'll stay out of it if Bea and Nola fight each other. Maxine leads a gang of the women to take revenge on Nola behind Bea's back, and they attack her, only to be stopped by Bea. Nola refuses to say who did it, but hints strongly it was Joan. She makes it clear she's no pushover, and bashes Trixie just before she is released. Judy is let off by the Parole Board for the fight with Frances, and tackles a drunken woman at Driscoll who comes after her with a broken bottle. Faye is transferred back to H Block, and Joan wants her to take over as bookie, giving her a cut.
