She stopped Susie attempting to walk out of the door with Mrs Barry's glasses which she had helped herself to a few days earlier.
She then started plotting her next escape through the air vents for the Air Con. She got stuck and maintenence had put chemicals in the system which burnt her. She was rescued and taken to hospital. She was in hospital but the day she was released she managed to slip the guards and ran away.
