Four months have passed since Bea Smith's bold escape and ruthless murder of Brayden Holt. She's now serving life without parole but Bea has assumed the mantle of "Top Dog", hailed by all - including Franky Doyle herself - as a worthy successor. All except Joan "The Freak" Ferguson who is determined to break Bea. Ferguson is willing to sacrifice anything and blackmail anyone to achieve her twisted desires, always wearing her iconic black leather gloves. Franky may no longer be Top Dog but she's not about to forget how Liz lagged on her and together with Boomer, Liz is made to pay. With Maxine acting as Bea's henchwoman, retribution is not far away and Boomer soon feels Queen Bea's vengeful wrath. Liz is at an all time low with the troubled relationship with her daughter, Franky's parole hangs in the balance, Doreen's baby bump is growing - all the while watched closely by Ferguson - and innocent looking Jess' dark side slowly reveals itself. For the officers, the tension between The Freak and her team are at their most strained as Fletch returns to work, Will is accused of a brutal murder and Vera is about to reach breaking point when she starts to see the truth about Ferguson. Culminating in a shocking finale, Wentworth Prison is where the officers are as twisted as the inmates and where murder, deceit and blackmail lie around every dark corner. Lock yourself away and throw away the key!
