I just watched the entire 4th season in one sitting. It's amazing that this show keeps finding ways to be completely unpredictable. Oh and by the way the new nurse is just distractingly beautiful.

Yes, she is! I finished last night. And unfortunately a few douchebags gave away the ending on the "Wentworth" FB page that I belong to. So I wasn't surprised. But it was still really sad. And you're right, just when you think the show is going in one direction, it takes you somewhere completely different. It's still my favorite series on right now at the moment.

Anyone else think that

(Season 4 finale spoiler)
Spoiler:
Franky was going to show up with the gun and kill Ferguson, in the process saving Bea?

Ah well. Next season will be strange...

It really does remain unpredictable as can be. I loved season 4, even if the finale upset me. I can't imagine what season 5 is going to be like, but cant wait to find out. Excellent show.

I guess no one is watching anymore.

Pretty good finale. Crazy.

I watched!

Good stuff.

Is it just me, or did they crank up the serious violence this season?

Lots of disturbing and very graphic scenes.

Maybe trying to keep/attract viewers as the show ages.

I watched season 5 in one fell swoop when it first showed up on Netflix. While I enjoyed it overall without Bea it's just not the same. Bringing Franky back in didn't help fill the void either. Probably because her storyline was the worth of the season. And I don't know who could possibly step in as the antagonist next season to replace Ferguson. I still thought it was good but, not as great as it had been in the past.

Bit of a bump. A good way though season 6 (watching ep 10 now) ... pretty solid overall. Not up to par with the first few seasons, but still good.

Looking forward to this. S6 not on Netflix Canada yet. Always a few month later than the US.

Watched Season 1 a year or so ago and enjoyed it. Need to get back to it.

Finished up season 6 today ... I enjoyed it ... it seemed a little lacking in areas, but the main story lines were all pretty solid .... and a good setup for next season. Nice to see they have maintained quality despite all the cast turnover

Agree, weakest season so far. But still good. I'm really missing some of the characters who are no longer around.

Season 7 has begun broadcasting. Hopefully they'll have a 'previously on' segment, or I'm going to have to watch some of the last episode, again.

WTF? Just watched the season 7 finale, tonight.

Without spoiling anything, just WTF? How?

Season 7 is now on Netflix. I just finished episode 4 and I did not see that coming. It's been an emotional season for this character and I hated to see that happen.

I didn't see it coming until the episode progressed. Then they REALLY telegraphed it. And, yeah, it was a shame.

Re: "Wentworth" (Australian reboot of "Prisoner: Cell Block H")

I'm almost done with this season. It's really great. Right up there with S1 and S2. Probably the most emotional season so far. The only thing bugged me was:

Spoiler:
Will Jackson sneaking a prisoner out of her cell and into his office to have sex is so unbelievable. As a former guard and now Governor, he's fully aware of all the cameras. Why wouldn't he delete the footage?


Edit: I just finished. Wow, hands down the most powerful season yet. I'm kind of glad it's over. I couldn't take another episode. It was way too heavy. As much as I loved the first two seasons, I actually think this one was the best. And the very last scene? I knew it!

Spoiler:
Agreed about Will. It seemed out of character, especially since he'd already apparently gotten away with a major crime.

Am I nuts, or did they not have a scene in which they dug up the grave and showed her horrific looking body? If it wasn't for that, I could understand that what we saw was possible, but how will they explain it? Okay, I just found and watched that clip again, and it could be somebody else. I guess I gave them the benefit of the doubt, since all 3 seemed satisfied that she was in the box.
