Alan's sudden release has the women astonished. Erica says they are to act as though he never existed. Meanwhile, the Department's generosity has the women suspicious. They learn they are getting a doctor, social worker and teacher (for Dianne) and are sceptical of ulterior motives. With the Department dishing out, nobody is buying anything from Nola any more. Nola wants to start bringing in booze and drugs, but Joan says no drugs. Helen is released. Lainie goes to court and gets 4 weeks. The Department announce a TV documentary crew are coming: Nola suggests their privileges will only last til they have gone. The crew arrive and interview some of the women. A little blackmail goes a long way for Nola, who gets one of the TV crew to pass a message onto a presenter, demanding drugs in exchange for keeping quiet about certain things.
