Episode Title: Sensitive New Age Lie

• Bree wants to split up with Zeke to stay friends without any romantic complications getting in the way
• Krystal humiliates Sky in an effort to reinforce she is the top dog in the prison
• Cellmate Emma tells Mary that Krystal is in solitary confinement because of Sky and warns her Krystal will want some form of revenge

Goodwood Women's Prison - Sky's cell: Sky is looking at her photo of Kerry when she hears Krystal and others taunting her with the nickname ‘piglet’. Krystal tells Sky now she is out of solitary; she intends to make her life hell and snatches the photo of Kerry from Sky. Sky warns her she is not afraid to go to the guards again and happy to fight her if she needs to. Before things get physical, Mary enters the cell and wants to be introduced to Krystal. Krystal has no desire to talk to an ‘old broom’ and throws the screwed up picture of Kerry onto the bed before leaving. Sky tries to be brave but Mary reassures her she doesn’t have to pretend and she’ll take care of Krystal.


The General Store: Janelle has arrived to pick up Kerry from Harold so she can stay with her and comments on how quiet it is. Harold explains it’s the first time they’ve opened up in the evening since Terrence’s death but Lou seems convinced trade will stay bad over it being a crime scene. Janelle changes the subject and mentions Janae is still drowsy but if Charlotte is not worried then she shouldn’t be either. After Janelle leaves with Kerry, Harold goes over to Bree, Zeke and Ringo. Bree asks if he’s had any news about Kerry’s leukaemia tests? Harold explains he’s waiting on the doctor calling him. Zeke is amazed that Bree didn’t talk to him about something so major and puts a reassuring hand on hers, but Bree pulls it away. Seeing it is an awkward moment Rachel and Lolly interrupt and suggest Ringo and Zeke go to see a film. Ringo wants everyone to go but Rachel wants a girls night. Zeke upset at Bree’s reaction storms out and Ringo follows. Rachel tries to make Bree see that Zeke and her can still be friends – Bree explains she’s confused as that’s what they have always just been.

No 28 - Kitchen/lounge: Ringo is confused with the girls behaviour and Zeke tries to explain just because Bree says she was okay with the break up, rarely do girls ever say what they mean. The boys find one of Rachel’s magazines with a quiz inside that could let them into understanding how girls think.

Carpenter's Mechanics - Workshop: Ned is sweeping the workshop as part of his being a slave to the Timminses. Lolly and Rachel arrive with a bucket of water for Ned. Bree tells the girls that she appreciates them checking how she is and assures them she’s fine and just helping Janae out with her bookkeeping. Janae arrives back and, distracted, knocks the bucket over and yells at Ned to clear it up. Ned expresses concern that she should be back at work at all but Janae tells him it is no concern of his. Rachel and Lolly ask Bree why Janae is treating Ned so badly but Bree assures them he is not as nice as he seems.

Goodwood Women's Prison - Krystal's cell: Mary arrives to see Krystal and Krystal’s cellmate excuses herself. Mary presses upon Krystal that it is important that Sky feels safe so Kerry can come to live with her. Krystal tells Mary she couldn’t care less but Mary seems distracted, as she has spotted the baby’s hat that Krystal stole from Sky. Mary warns Krystal against making her angry but Krystal carries on with the taunting. Mary calmly takes Krystal’s left hand and then twists her arm behind her back telling her she is going to convince her.

The General Store: Back from hospital, Ned, Janae and Bree each lunch. Bree takes the opportunity to tease Janae over Ned sweeping her off her feet but Ned warns Janae to stay out of the ring for at least a week. Janae agrees but only if he carries on training her. Janelle arrives with Kerry and tells janae the good news that Libby has agreed to sell her shares of the garage to her. Janelle wants it to be a way for Janae to forget the boxing. Bree comments Janae has gone from the backseat to under the bonnet.

No 28 - Lounge: Ringo is horrified to learn Zeke has beaten him in the test and he is described as being an ‘emotional abyss’. Ringo makes a cheap comment about Zeke being the one with no girlfriend but apologises immediately. He suggests Zeke should ask Lolly out so he can move on and to prove to Bree she can feel part of their circle of friends without feeling awkward. Zeke explains he doesn’t see Lolly in a romantic light and warns Ringo he could lose Rachel if he doesn’t change his attitude. Ringo agrees he needs a new angle.

The General Store - Kitchen: Harold is unimpressed with Lou’s jokes about updating the menu with ‘Homicide Humus’ & ‘Deadly date pudding’ and reminds him he hasn’t seen Sky since taking the care package to her. Lou explains he doesn’t know what to say to her. Harold believes they need to support Sky as much as Sky needs them.


Goodwood Women's Prison - Sky's cell: Mary reassures Sky she is sure Kerry’s tests results will be okay and cheers her up by giving her Kerry’s hat back. Mary explains she got hold of it after passing Krystal’s cell and saw Krystal being put onto a stretcher. Sky thanks her and they see Krystal wheeled past in a lot of pain.

No 28 - Lounge: Lou discovers they are missing a sugar dispenser and tells Harold he thinks someone has stolen it as a ghoulish memento. Bree jokes about Rachel and Ringo having the perfect relationship when Rachel receives a text asking her, Lolly and Bree to a pool party. Bree declines from going in case things would be awkward for Zeke. Lolly tells Lou they’re going to Ringo’s.

Carpenter's Mechanics - Workshop: Ned has doubts about resuming boxing training with Janelle being so against it. Janae explains it is the only way she can deal with getting out her emotions over Boyd and Stingray. Ned convinces her if she explains it to Janelle then he thinks Janelle will agree to let her train. Janelle leaves to find her mother.

The General Store: Janae arrives and asks to speak to her mother but Janelle shushes her down as Harold is on the phone receiving Kerry’s test results with Lou and Bree waiting to hear the news as well. Harold announces to everyone that Kerry is in remission and he goes to get his car to take him, Janelle and Kerry to the prison. Janae asks about Janelle supporting her decision to box again but Janelle refuses to give her permission.

No 30 - Swimming pool: Lolly and Zeke fool around in the pool as Ringo gets the chance to use some of his new age thinking on Rachel coming across as sensitive. Lou interrupts with food for them all and Ringo applies more sensitive thinking in wanting to lay the dinner to eat rather than Rachel.

Goodwood Women's Prison - Sky's cell: Krystal arrives with her arm in a sling and shoulder badly bruised. She tells Sky she wants to call a truce and they stay out of each other’s way. Mary calls it a lovely gesture. Sky asks about her injury but Krystal ignores her and leaves. Mary follows.

Goodwood Women's Prison - Corridor: Mary catches up with Krystal and tells her she will be nice to Sky when she sees her or suffer further and next time be seriously hurt.

Carpenter's Mechanics - Workshop: Janae is training with Ned on the punch bag when Janelle on her way to see Sky with Harold goes past and jumps out of the car. She forbids Janae to carry on but Ned tries to take the blame for allowing Janae to train. Janae however has no intention of letting Ned take the blame and explains she lied to Ned that Janelle had agreed to it. Janae explains why she needs to keep up boxing and Ned assures Janelle if he guides her Janae could be a really good boxer. Janelle softens and agrees only if Ned carries on the training.


Goodwood Women's Prison - Courtyard: Sky is waiting for her visitors when Mary arrives asking if she has signed the forms for Kerry to live with her. Sky explains she still has concerns for Kerry’s safety but Mary assures her Krystal and any other problems can be solved by them staying together as a team. Sky spots Harold, Janelle and Kerry approaching and Mary makes a hasty retreat. Sky hugs Kerry after learning the results are great news. Sky tells them she wants Kerry to come and be with her. Janelle supports the decision but Harold is unsure. From behind a tree, Mary watches, as her plan becomes more of a reality.
