Unholy Alliances Mar 7, 2002 Yvonne's escape bid was foiled by Jim, Karen and PO Blakeson so she spent the week down the block.

Neil asked Sylvia to take a computer class for the inmates even though she is totally computer illiterate! Shaz began digging an escape tunnel in the potting shed.

Denny and Shaz' tunnel plan took a possibly tragic twist when Buki found out and demanded to be a part of the operation...a tunnel collapse put her life in danger! Julie J's daughter Rhiannon showed up on G-Wing. Karen seemed to be getting close to Mark but Jim, for some reason, warned her off him.

Yvonne, playing the mother figure, told Denny and Shaz to give a months' spends to Buki as 'compensation' - Shaz was very reluctant and unsympathetic. Karen was still furious with Jim for giving Neil the private photos of her. Neil was not going to be beaten by Jim so firstly, got 'romantically involved' with Di Barker to quash Jim's rumours and secondly, he found a back-up of Helen Stewart's sexual assault report against Jim and revealed to Karen that he had been trying to track helen down!

Neil continued to undermine Jim by calling a staff meeting so that the G-Wing staff could slag him off behind his back...A plan that seemed to work; did Jim really quit?
