Disgraced former Governor of Wentworth Joan Ferguson is a villain people love to hate. From her appearance at the beginning of Season 2, Joan is an exquisitely calculated character. The cliffhanger of Season 5 leaves us wondering whether or not she is gone for good.
Fans of Wentworth (who had not seen the original series) were shocked when Season 5 revealed that Bea Smith (Danielle Cormack) did indeed die at the end of Season 4. Many, like myself, believed that the Season 4 cliffhanger would result in a miraculous recovery in the first episode of Season 5. This, of course, did not happen.
