Wentworth Season 8 Episode 8 : Things You Need To Know!


David Mudd

Hold on to your (teal) hats, because things in Wentworth have just gotten a whole lot heavier. With last week’s episode ending with Judy Bryant Vivienne Awosoga laying into unsuspecting prison GM Ann Reynolds (Jane Hall) in the prison kitchen, we’re now on lockdown, which means things are tense with a capital T in the prison.

Allie Is Under Pressure

Our Top Dog Allie (Kate Jenkinson) has had a difficult start to the season, having to deal with newcomer Lou Kelly (Kate Box), who is now openly dealing LSD within the prison. And now she has a correctional facility full of dissatisfied women who are desperate for the lockdown to be lifted.

She’s also under enormous pressure from Will Jackson (Robbie Magasiva) to do the unthinkable and lag in order for the peace to be restored, which she refuses to do. Jenkinson explains that this is just one of many moral quandaries in which her character has found herself this season.

When you’re in charge of a company, “you’re going to be faced with making decisions that may slightly diverge from your moral compass, or that may significantly diverge from your moral compass,” she says. “[It becomes a question of] if I do this thing that I don’t necessarily agree with, will it be better for the women in the long run?” says the author.
She doesn’t have much time to make up her mind, as the continued lockdown quickly degenerates into an all-out riot.

Lou is thrown under the bus by Judy (not literally, but we wouldn’t rule it out in the future).

The three of them, including Boomer (Katrina Milosevic) and Ruby Rarriwuy Hick, want to confess to Allie that they were all responsible for Ann’s bashing, but Judy isn’t having any of it and tells Allie that it was actually Lou Kelly who was responsible for the attack on Ann. According to Awosoga, her character is prone to deceiving others. “Lies are pouring out of her mouth from every direction.”

With this piece of fabricated news, Allie has no choice but to hand it over to Will as rioting breaks out, with prisoners not only abusing staff but also making their way close to the creche, where Vera (Kate Atkinson) and Jake’s (Bernard Curry) daughter Grace is being cared for.

Lou Has Set Her Sights on a New Prey This Time.

The fact that Lou has no problem abusing people to get what she wants (isn’t that correct, Booms?) has already been established; however, the extent to which she will go is now becoming clear. As Lou’s lover Reb (Zoe Terakes) becomes increasingly convinced that prison psychiatrist Greg Miller (David de Lautour) will not agree to his top surgery, she devises a simple solution: kill him in order for another psychiatrist to step in.

Moreover, now that she has Joan Ferguson (Pamela Rabe) under her tutelage, she wants The Freak to slip some rat poison into Miller’s coffee during a counselling session with Miller.

Every action Lou takes is aimed at ensuring Reb’s safety and progressing them closer to the goal of him receiving surgery and them having enough money to keep his testosterone levels stable, Box explains. The author describes her as “unafraid of violence and unafraid of going after what she wants, no matter who might stand in her way.”

The plan fails, however, and Joan comes close to ingesting the poison herself until Marie (Susie Porter) intervenes and saves the day. Marie and Joan, perhaps? That’s a friendship we didn’t see coming, to be honest.

Ferguson Continues to Identify Herself as Kath Maxwell.

No matter how hard they try, no one is able to jolt Ferguson’s memory. Jake, on the other hand, is content with the status quo and tells Vera that it’s actually better for all of them because she won’t spill the beans about being buried alive when she attempted to flee.

Whatever the truth, Ferguson is still adamant that she has no idea who she is and, after being confronted by Allie about her past crimes, she no longer wants to know who she really is either. “Joan Ferguson was a monster,” she admits to Dr. Miller in an interview.

“She was obviously pure evil,” says the narrator. Is she for real or is she just playing mind games with me? If Ferguson is telling the truth, Rabe points out that her past actions have made it nearly impossible for anyone to believe what she has to say – “it’s like the little girl who cried wolf.” “How do you persuade people that you are not a master at playing people and games if you have spent your entire life doing so?”

What Exactly Is Going on With Reb and Marie?

In addition to her relationship with Joan, Marie appears to be protective of young Reb after Lou is taken away and placed in solitary confinement after Allie informs the authorities that she had done something wrong. When it comes to Reb’s partner, the only things we know about her are that (A) she is extremely protective of her lover and (B) she despises Marie with a fiery passion. As a result, the fact that Marie and Reb are becoming friends is not something we expect to be well received.

So, with Lou raging in the slot, our Top Dog questioning whether or not she is doing the right thing, and who knows what is going on in Ferguson’s mind, there is a lot on the line right now. And what exactly happened at the True Paths retreat – which burned down with only Reb and Lou as survivors, while the rest were poisoned – is still up in the air. The water in the goldfish bowl that is Wentworth Correctional Center is becoming increasingly murky, and with only two episodes left in this season, we’re growing increasingly concerned for everyone’s safety.
