Franky's parole hearing is brought forward. Under the pump and certain that Ferguson is planning to ambush her chances, Franky offends former lover Kim, who retaliates by planting drugs, in the form of heroin-filled balloons, in Franky's cell. Faced with an imminent cell toss, Franky has no option but to swallow the evidence. So Franky fronts the parole board, under-prepared, and with a gutful of heroin that may just kill her. But Ferguson has a surprise planned, and just when it seems parole might be possible, Will finds a recording, left on his doorstep, of Franky confessing to Meg Jackson's murder. Meanwhile, Doreen faces an agonising choice. Does she keep her baby in prison with her? Or does she ask her sister to take care of Joshua, and get him out of Ferguson's reach for good?
