TV Review: Wentworth Prison (Series 5, Episode 12)
Share This Article:
Humanity and friendship is at the core of this series finale. Like always, Wentworth Prison still delivered an unnerving finale with shock twists and questionable character decisions. Still acting as govenror, Channing is keen to put Ferguson in harm's way as much as possible – releasing her back into the general population and rejecting her request to be put in protection. He also decides to release Kaz who has been slotted for accidentally creating the lynch mob. Clearly Channing is keen to create a hostile environment, baiting Kaz to get rid of Ferguson by claiming she will be out for blood. However in the medical wing, Ferguson's fragile state is clear and although she has been a loose cannon in the past, it remained doubtful that she would be capable of anything too gory this episode. It’s clear that Channing is not the best governor and fails at what Vera does best; treating the inmates as human beings despite their crimes. This aspect of Vera’s personality shone through last week when she saved Ferguson, and the freak herself struggles to understand why Vera chopped the rope that was killing her. I can’t help but hope that the next series will be the downfall of Channing and the rise of Vera. She is clearly the better governor, and understands how to run the prison much better than Channing. Whilst Kaz has to toy with the idea of murder, Franky and Allie are all set to escape until Liz asks for Franky’s protection. Franky’s loyalty to her friends is so pure and wonderful, throughout the past five series she has always stood by her friends. This week, she offers to give up her chance of freedom and opportunity to prove her innocence and help Liz, who is so vulnerable after Sonia’s manipulation.
