A hostage situation develops at the Colsens' after Des' murder. Carol threatens to kill both herself and Jilly, and it is only Joan's quick actions that save the girl. When Joan doesn't turn up for work, Meg arrives to check on her, discovers what is going on, and calls the police. Carol arrives in Wentworth on remand. Bea is furious over Maggie's lies; Lizzie admits she knew she was guilty. Maggie learns she is to be extradited, but to her horror the proviso is she must serve her entire sentence in a US jail. Brandy freaks out in the shower, and reverts back to the same persona Meg met at the Library. Meg realises that's where she knows her from, but when she confronts her, Brandy returns to normal and denies it all. At Driscoll, Litza and Mikki argue. Judy doesn't think Mikki can help anyone else until she sorts her own life out. Wally goes to see Manoli, and manages to reconcile him with Litza.
