'When Ferguson takes her revenge on the prisoners by bulldozing the garden project, Doreen turns her anger on Franky. Ferguson psychologically manipulates Vera and she crosses a point of no return whilst Maxine orchestrates a desperate bid to see her spurned lover.

'Franky accuses Ferguson of deliberately giving Simmo a hotshot, but Ferguson wrests back the power by letting Franky know she's got a snitch in the ranks.'
