Episode 1.03
Wednesday, May 15, 2013
Screenplay by Peter McTighe
Story by Lara Radulovich
Directed by Catherine Millar

Franky is confronted by a visit from her father who abandoned her as a young child. He wants to offer Franky a life on the outside when she’s released. Franky is torn: although she wants her father, she banishes him from her life.

Meanwhile, Bea gets Jacs offside, and when Franky intervenes, Jacs is looking for payback.

After a tearful reunion with her daughter Debbie, Bea is in a position of owing Jacs a favour and is manipulated into being part of Franky’s painful demonstration of Jacs’s power.

Mindful of reprisals and the prison’s out-dated systems, Erica takes steps to change them, putting the officers offside.
