Erica has ""resigned"" (ie the Department sacked her) after Nola's protest. Colleen is appointed Acting Governor, with Meg as Deputy. Douglas hints to Joan that he wants her to get the Governor's job. Bea arrives back and insists the women can look after themselves from now on. However, when Lizzie tells her about the fake minister, she agrees to help bring him down. They hold a bible study group, where his ignorance of the Bible is revealed; he is quickly identified as a fake and arrested. Nola tries to persuade the women that Bea stole her money before her escape. With Lizzie and some heavies in tow, Nola confronts Bea rifling through her hiding place in the Library. Meanwhile, Judy's latest hopeless case is a particularly drippy shoplifter called Denise Tyler, who she lends a helping hand to.
