With only two episodes left for season three, Wentworth is beginning to string together all the puzzle pieces that have been strewn about for the past two seasons. With Season three endgame in sight, here are some of my suspicions of what could happen. – Spoilers ahead for those not up-to-date with season three!!
1: Sophie Donaldson Leaves /// The inclusion of Sophie Donaldson (Edwina Samuels) this season played heavily into Liz’s (Celia Ireland) season arc. Proving that actions can be louder than words, Sophie chose a ‘don’t do as I say, do as I do’ approach to her mothers alcoholism and promptly found herself joining mummy dearest in prison with a drink driving-hit and run charge. Now that Liz has cleaned herself up after a sloppy mid-season binge on ‘Boomer Brew’, Sophie really hasn’t had much else to do with the exception of her meet and greet with the wife of the man she killed.
2: Erica Davidson Returns /// It’s probably a long-shot, but could season one’s temporary governor Erica Davidson (Leeanna Walsman) make a surprise return to the hot seat? With Governor Ferguson (Pamela Rabe) on a fast downward spiral, ‘the board’ could be looking to fill the head position fast. Sure Erica was fired for losing control of the female prisoners (Bea killing Jacs ultimately lead to Erica’s dismissal) but she also knows the job and the women – especially Frankie (Nicole da Silva).
3: Will and Fletch re-ignite their friendship /// It’s been a rocky road for these two prison wardens. Between death of loved ones, alcoholism, affairs, drug abuse and attempted murder, the path hasn’t been well lit for these two former mates but with Fletch (Aaron Jeffrey) on-track to regain his memory, could his possible revelation that Ferguson was out to get Will (Robbie Magasiva) after he removed Jianna’s baby from her, bring the two back together?
4: Bridget Westfall resumes counselling duties at Wentworth /// Bridget (Libby Tanner) has to come back right? It’s the only sane response one has to offer after she was abruptly tossed out thanks to Vera (Kate Atkinson) and her “Ima do what’s right by the Governor” attitude. Bridget has been this season’s best addition with her need to use her counselling powers to rid these inmates of their demons and if her powers worked on Frankie, just imagine what a session with the Governor would do?! Plus, it’s Libby Tanner and we need her more on our tv screens.
5: Jess is freakier than The Freak /// From day dot I’ve been saying “That girl Jess Warner (Georgia Chara) is a cuckoo clock short of a cuckoo”. Here’s the thing…we know jack about this girl….literally nothing about her…well except she uses sex as a weapon, has a weird affection for children and makes great ‘if looks could kill’ eyes. Now that Doreen (Shareena Clanton) has had baby Joshua, Jess’s eepy-creepy face has been coming out a bit more often than normal and it seems her plan to have Joshua all to herself is in full effect.
6: Frankie gets parole /// This is what the third season has been leading up-to for Frankie, her big breakthrough with Bridget about killing Meg Jackson (Catherine McClements), her big breakthrough about wanting to get jiggy with Bridget, her big breakthrough that her relationship with drugs has buggered a lot of people up…all signs are pointing to Frankie actually leaving Wentworth – let’s hope I’m wrong on this one!)
7: The Governor gets taken down /// Frankie, Doreen, Liz and Doreen all know, Fletch and Bridget do too and now Vera has finally joined the anti-freak gang. There’s no looking back for Joan now that half of Wentworth are in on her freakishly creepy and deviant doings but just how will she go down? Will it be a joint effort? Will Vera do it alone? Perhaps Bea gets her hands on a pencil…either way, there’s no denying that Wentworth will probably need a new governor by seasons end.
8: Kaz Proctor becomes an inmate at Wentworth /// As the leader of the all-female-all-butt-kicking-all-men-hating group ‘the red right hand’ it’s probably not in Kaz’s (Tammy MacIntosh) best interests that Will Jackson knows exactly who she is. Add that with a dose of “Hi, thanks for calling, but i’m currently out on a mission, looking for a large bald man to bash” and one can only assume Kaz’s freedom is quite limited.
So there you have it! Eight of my suspicions for season three’s finale – I’ve purposely left Bea out because…well…I feel she’s a little lost. Her determination to find the bald man plays into Fletch’s story-line, her determination to bring down Ferguson plays into everyone’s story-line and the only thing Bea really has to possibly worry about is losing her grip as top dog with the prisoners.
What do you guys think? Am I headed down the right path or am I missing something all-together? Sound off in the comments below!
