Holly has been arrested for allegedly abducting the child she was hired to care for. In this scene, she joins the other women in the classroom, and Rita sticks out her leg to make her fall. Holly has no choice but to say to the officer that it was an accident, that she just 'slipped and fell'. Maria hears this and it triggers her memories of covering up the domestic abuse she suffered at the hands of her husband.

 

Dangerous Women did not feature the iconic scene from Prisoner’s first episode, where Bea Smith, thinking that Lynne 'Wonky' Warner is guilty of kidnapping a child, burns her hand in the press.
