Fenner is at Shell’s mercy – and after a very close shave, he’s determined to get Shell out of Larkhall for good. Crystal arrives back in Larkhall, but will it spell the end of her relationship with Josh Mitchell when an obsessive Di Barker gets wind?

Shaz and Denny are influenced by new girl Buki Lester, but Shaz later faces problems of her home when The Peckham Boot Gang arrives at Larkhall – a gang who later cause a riot on the Wing. Helen and Nikki’s relationship deteriorates – and when they both find new romantic relationships, it seems Nikki and Helen could be over for good.

Karen is besotted with Fenner, will she ever take note of Fenner’s crimes? The Julies face trials of their own, when it seems Larkhall has a revolving door for them, while Barbara’s secret causes a rift in G-Wing.

Elsewhere, Sylvia’s maliciousness towards Shell comes back to haunt her, while new officer Gina Rossi sends shockwaves through G-Wing with her sharp, to-the-point attitude and jealousy towards Prison Officer boyfriend Mark Waddle.
