The women are given the chance to give Mum and Bea Smith a party when they are being released. after the general speeches, Mum receives a knitted blanket, one that "every girl made a square for". The two are released, and after Bea Smith expressed some concern about Mum's daughter Lorraine Watkins, the two parted ways.

Bea Smith is driven into the city by Eddie Cook, who she invites to a night out - she intends to blow the money she made while in prison and treat Eddie to a night out. The following day, she has her hair done, goes shopping and meets her old friend and past inmate Val, who gives her a gift box, and asks her if she is sure. Bea responds she is.

Franky Doyle sees Lynn in the garden and deliberately angers her by walking all over the plants, and taunting her.

Bea rings a doorbell, which is answered by a young blonde. She tells her to pass on the message she is outside.
