Bea Smith is confirmed dead, Joan ??The Freak Ferguson? is believed to be the next top dog.?The upcoming Wentworth season 5 will be a strange one without Bea Smith. And with Smith?s controversial downfall, another is set to take her role. The next person poised to take the great top dog position is none other than Joan.
Joan, who also goes by Joan ?The Freak? Ferguson, is responsible for Smith?s shocking death. Wentworth?s season 5?s finale had fans on the edge when the show killed off a much beloved character.
What?s frustrating some viewers is the fact that the episode did not show scenes ?proving? her death. It?s because of this, that some are speculating that Smith didn?t actually die and is still in a battle for survival. Some fans are hoping that there will be new Wentworth season 5?s news to prove their speculations right.
With Smith?s ambiguous death, it?s no wonder people are hoping for her comeback next season. Fans are really holding on to the notion that the show will pull a Jon Snow and bring Smith back from the dead. Because just like Jon Snow, Smith was a very critical character on the show with a large fan base that her death was considered uncalled for.
Bea Smith is Dead
Sad to say but odds are, Bea Smith really is dead. The show?s producer even confirmed it. Producer Jo Porter made a statement that it is indeed the end of Bea on the show.
Porter says: ?It is always an incredibly difficult decision to say farewell to a much-loved and revered character like Bea Smith?Which is why this storyline has had such a huge impact on us all and we are sure fans will feel the same. This decision was particularly hard as it meant also saying goodbye to Danielle Cormack,?
What?s even more unsettling is that Actress Danielle Cormack is already off doing other things while the rest of the cast have already started filming. Cormack was at Cambodia for some charity project. The actress hasn?t given out an official statement on the matter. Its best to expect that there will be no more Wentworth season 5 news on the return of Bea Smith.
Next Top Dog
Since Smith?s out of the picture fans are wondering which one of the remaining cast will take up the spot she has left on the show. One rationale assumption is that Joan will.
Joan is the top pick because of her top killing skill set. But then again, Kaz Proctor did get the most votes during the finale.
Who do you guys think will replace Smith? Joan or Kaz? Stay tuned in with us for more Wentworth season 5 news as they surface.
