Urgent questions for S4E12

So I figure E12 will answer the big question of Allie’s fate, but there are some much bigger Wentworth questions I’m desperate to see answered too….

What happened to Vera’s affirmation rubber bands?

What happened to the prison theatre we saw in E1? And why do they have one? Have Juice’s crew been putting on Gilbert & Sullivan in there?

What’s Franky been doing all season? She’s started a new life as a community lawyer and stalker of teenage boys, and we missed it all!

Is Bea still running her hairdressing classes, and why hasn’t she punished Kaz with a giant fluffy mullet?

Are Bridget, Doreen and Liz still on the show?

Does Vera still fancy Bridget a bit?

What happened to the politics and “cause” behind the Red Right Hand? Will we ever learn how it started?

Why did Joan really keep her distance from poor Shayne for 17 years? * sniff *

What happened to that sinister new guard with the eyebrows in E1, who was a double agent between Vera and Joan?

Where is Joan getting all her money from? How many lifelong prison guards have 90K and endless lawyer’s fees in the glovebox?

Did Vera buy her copy of Fifty Shades of Beige at Kmart, or was it a free Woman’s Weekly giveaway?

How is Joan managing her exquisite eyebrows and (god forgive me) her bra hooks with only one hand? (I volunteer! I volunteer!!!)

Why has no one dropped a gigantic pumpkin full of drugs on Jake’s head from a great height, then set fire to his hair, turning him into a jack-o-lantern in a screw’s uniform? (I volunteer! I volunteer!!!)

Dear tumblr lesbians I follow

You have let me down.

I depended on you.

You told me all about Orphan Black. You told me about Person of Interest.

Wynonna Earp was particularly awesome. Thanks for that one.

Greys Anatomy is maybe making a comeback.

Even The Fosters is tolerable through the absurd level of teenage angst.


How could you not tell me about Wentworth?!

Are you guys just not watching it?

Like… I don’t understand.

There’s like a billion lesbians on this show.

And BEA SMITH, okay?!

Season 4 finale airs tomorrow, you guys. So.
