Written by Stuart Page
Directed by Kevin Carlin

When Bea is sentenced to life without parole for the killing of Brayden Holt, Ferguson makes it very clear — she owns Bea now. So when Bea uses her standing as Top Dog to hit back, Ferguson takes revenge — she slots Bea and releases Liz from protection, exposing Liz to a brutal bashing from Boomer. But Ferguson has underestimated Bea, who starts a riot amongst the prisoners. With the prison in lock-down Ferguson has to turn to Bea to quell the riot. Wentworth isn't Ferguson's prison — it's Bea's. Battle lines are drawn. Meanwhile, Doreen's baby bump is growing and Ferguson is watching her closely. While Vera's instincts are more attuned to Ferguson's scheming, Will is none the wiser despite Fletch's apparent hit and run accident.

Directed by Kevin Carlin

Following the riot, Bea must balance an uneasy peace with Ferguson with the needs and expectations of the women. Ferguson wants to stamp out drugs inside the prison and for obvious reasons Bea finds herself on common ground with the Governor. But when it becomes clear that Ferguson wants Franky's head for it, Bea must wonder if, rather than help her cement her position as Top Dog, it may indeed be a ruse to undermine it. Meanwhile, Liz has a difficult reunion with her daughter, Sophie, and is unsure when Doreen proposes she be the alternate carer when the baby comes. Will is in a happy place and seems to finally be able to put the past behind him but is shocked when he is the focus of a murder investigation.
