Wentworth Season 5: The Freak Replaces Bea as Top Dog?

Wentworth Season 5: The Freak Replaces Bea as Top Dog?

Wentworth Season 5 will not air until next year, but fans have already begun guessing what will happen next. This should not come as a surprise, though. The fourth season of the hit show did end with quite the shocker. The prison has just lost its top dog. Who could possibly replace her next season?

Joan “The Freak” Ferguson repeatedly stabbed Bea Smith with a screwdriver. While most fans still can’t accept her death, facts remain. The Freak stabbed Bea multiple times. She lost a lot of blood. The episode also ended with Bea already hallucinating about her dead child.

The show’s executive producer,  Jo Porter, has later come out to confirm star  Danielle Cormack’s exit from the show. Fans can’t escape the truth: Bea is dead. Could the Freak actually take her place as top dog next season?

The Freak might have been on her way out of prison in that last episode. However, she did stab Bea out in the open. This might just land her back behind bars next season. Could she really manage to be the next top dog?

The Freak isn’t the only character who can replace Bea as the prison’s main man, though. Several other characters can step up as the prison’s big boss.

Fans might not have seen Franky Doyle for a while now since she’s still out on parole. However, she could still return to take on the Freak and become the next top dog. Vera Bennett might not be a prisoner exactly. But, according to Movie News Guide, she could also still pull the strings as the main character next season.

Who will replace Bea Smith as top dog in the show’s next installment? Will the Freak really find herself behind bars again in Season 5? Will Franky really return as Bea’s replacement? Or will the next season change things a bit and assign someone other than a prisoner as the next top dog? No word as of yet to confirm this. Stay tuned for updates.

    If the freak is put back inside for bea’s death & she ends up in general population at Wentworth I for one will not continue to watch the show for the simple fact of it would lose all credibility & be so far fetched. The freak needs to go completely because her story is becoming a joke with what she has gotten away with & ending up in Wentworth to begin with is unrealistic.

    • Chammy

      I agree

  • Emma Victoria Warren

    This would be fantastic. The Freak is such a good character to watch and I would love learn more/see more of her in season 5. She makes the show interesting! I don’t think her returning to general would be farfetched either, she manages to get into peoples heads, manipulate others, and that is how she can remain in a credible way. It’s clever. I like it. I want to know how Vera will explain how Bea was outside the prison without a guard, and armed, and also why Joan was let out the back door. Interested to see it play out. But definitely keep Ferguson, it would be a shame to see her leave. She’s fab.

      Have to disagree with you there. Don’t get me wrong the freak has been a great addition to the cast & Pamela Rabe is phenomenal but its her story that is starting to become boring to me. Its the same thing every season she lies, manipulates & sneaks around to bring everybody down around her. Its become predictable with her character & she can only keep doing what she has been doing for so long until she gets caught. There are no emotions to her character she is very flat & I think her story has gone beyond its expiration date

      • Emma Victoria Warren

        Fair enough, me and my housemates love the complexity of the Freak, and Pamela Rabe is phenomenal, I agree. I reckon there is a lot more scope to develop and explore the Freak. Admittedly it did get a bit repetitive with the Bea vs Ferguson scenario in some of the s4 episodes but I would like to the show to delve more into her history etc. They have touched on this topic now and again with Jianna and her relationship with her father but not fully. I don’t think Ferguson is past her expiration date, I think any character especially one as complex as the Freak, has longevity, if the writing stays fresh and new. I found it incredibly entertaining watching her as Gov and also as a prisoner, I would like the Stewart/Ferguson alliance to be developed more n’all.

        • Jenna

          It would be interesting if they changed the direction of her storyline to not make it so repetitive. Her past would be a good place to start it would be very interesting, the whole Jianna thing needs to fully come out & id like to know about fergusons mum, she never has mentioned her. In saying that I cant see the writers really wanting to change direction with her, to me it seems like she is the only villain & thats what they will keep going with. I found the writing & production in season 4 was a bit lazy & a lil messy compared to the other seasons, I hope they don’t drop the ball & make season 5 a snooze fest. Not because of the whole Bea thing, I was thinking this after about the 3rd episode. They definitely need to pick up their game for next season

          • Emma Victoria Warren

            Absolutely, it’d be interesting for her past to be explored in more depth. I’d like to find out more about her mum along with Ferguson’s strained relationship with her father. I had wondered why her mother had never been mentioned before now too. I think the writers could continue with her villainy as well as exploring her past, there are many directions in which they could take her should they decide too, and that’s why I think she has longevity as a character. I’m sure Pamela Rabe would excel at anything they throw at her n’all.

            Funnily enough I really enjoyed 4, there were some area’s of repetition but overall I quite enjoyed it. I do like the continued twists and turns that you don’t expect to happen and I felt S4 delivered on that account. I will be interested to see how they have Vera explain the circumstances of Bea’s death/potential death, obviously Bea being outside of the prison at the same time that Ferguson was released with no guards present is going to a hard one for her to explain away!

    Also looking forward to seeing what is next for Jake!

  • Chammy

    I have binged watch every season. This is one of the best series of this genre I have ever seen. I am sorry to see Bea go especially since her lover Allie appears to have woken from her coma so Bea’s wish to die along with her was all for naught. I don’t really want to see the Freak back. She needs to go to prison for murder and at a different prison than Wentworth. I think there are enough characters to continue the series and make it interesting without the Freak

  • Emma Victoria Warren

    As Gov, prisoner or officer, I still want to see the Freak back. She’s my favourite character to watch explored. Well, along with Liz who I also love.🤘
