Franky is focused on making it on the outside and while home life with Bridget isn’t perfect, they are navigating the terrain together. Vera has finally achieved the Governorship and while she thinks she is the upper hand with Ferguson, her control is short-lived. Liz, Doreen, Maxine and Boomer return in the latest series loyal to Bea but the bond is tested as Kaz sets out to undermine the status quo of Wentworth and weaknesses are exposed.
