Pauline calls Maxine to tell her the cops are on their way: she steals a car and tries to flee, but is caught and arrested. Bea and Lizzie are disgusted to see her back, and she won't tell them what has happened. Lizzie has had enough of Maggie's nonsense, and starts opposing her every chance she gets. The others think she is just jealous. Bea writes a letter for the press about Maggie's plight, which she smuggles out through her solicitor. Joan's drunken neighbour, Des Colsen, threatens to shoot Major. His jittery wife Carol has a life of misery with him. At the library, Meg watches as one of the staff, the timid, nervous Miss Gardiner, is visited by a debt collector. She is later admitted to Wentworth calling herself Brandy Carter, dressed as a tart, on soliciting charges. Meg recognizes her, but can't quite place her. Litza's presence at Driscoll causes friction amongst the other residents.
