If Orange is the New Black had a crazy, junkie sister, it would be Wentworth. Wentworth season 5 episode 1?has been the most anticipated episode?for its fans.?
There are so many rumors going around just to find out what will really happen in season 5. Although Wentworth executive producer Jo Harper says that they keep everything ?close to the family?, somehow somewhere fans believe that someone has to get it right. Numerous theories of scenes of the first episode have been gaining traction in social media.
Vera Bennett and Will Jackson
Many are arguing whether or not Vera Bennett (Kate Atkinson) and Will Jackson (Robbie Magasiva) will still have their positions. According to some fans, there might be another governor in town. Bennett, the governor, and Jackson, the deputy chief, may both be under heat after the events of what happen in the finale of season four. Bennett has shown that she has been negligent in her position and duties. If Bea did not break out of the prison to get her hands on Ferguson, Bennett will surely get the worse of the event. She may admit to breaking the rules and endangering Ferguson and Smith. Otherwise, Bennett will have to create a huge lie that may or may not be believed.
Although fans are still not over Bea Smith?s (Danielle Cormack) ?death?, many say she may not reprise her role. Smith was a strong character in the show, which certainly helped the show gain traction. However, without her, no one knows what will happen next. Some say that she will be in a coma and that season five will be the last season. In other words, by the end of season five, Smith will die. With hopeful fans, Bea is expected to say at least a few words or get to see Allie Novak (Kate Jenkinson).
Joan Ferguson and Jake Stewart
Joan Ferguson (Pamela Rabe) left her viewers with a red stain on the pavement. She happily stabbed the Queen Bea at the very end of the season 4 finale. However, many fans ask whether or not she will be put in jail for murder. If Smith lives, will she be charged with premeditated or attempted murder? Many argue though that Channing, the regional director of the Wentworth Correctional Facility, will let her go. She still has a hold on him which was why she was able to go out with the general prison population. On top of this, Jake Stewart (Bernard Curry) is also under Ferguson?s wing. If Ferguson gets to go scot-free (again!), Stewart may take Jackson?s position.
Sonia Stevens (Sigrid Thornton) is a recently new character introduced to the Wentworth family. She seems to be eerily disguised as a manipulative killer. However, it is not known. Many have compared her eerie side as worse than Ferguson?s. If her role is taken partly from the original Prison Cell Block H story, Stevens may be the next top dog. She was known to be Smith?s top dog rival in the original series. However, she also had a drug trafficking role, which is very different from her role now. Her role as an elite, cosmetic industry heir has gained traction in the recent season of Wentworth.
