Wentworth fans in disbelief after intense finale
Die-hard Wentworth fans are torn over last night's knockout finale, and they have a message for the writers.
No Australian drama does intensity like Wentworth, and last night the season finale left fans breathless after Bea Smith was killed off in a showdown with Joan “The Freak” Ferguson.
The 4th season finale had been kept under wraps from media to avoid any Spoilers, and last night was clear why.
The episode saw Bea devastated over the loss of Allie (Kate Jenkinson). But in an ultimate sacrifice and revenge, Bea Smith (Danielle Cormack) impaled herself onto a screwdriver held by Ferguson, thus framing the former governor for murder.
The episode marked the second on-screen death for Cormack this year following her demise as Scarlett Meagher in ABC’s Rake.
Cormack has been prominent across all 4 seasons of Wentworth, collecting Logie and ASTRA Awards along the way, and gathering a fervent fanbase. Last night, there were many on social media refusing to accept the writers had killed off Bea Smith.
Season 5 has already been confirmed.

I refuse to believe that Bea Smith is dead until someone confirms that Danielle is leaving #Wentworth
