Gladys takes an office job at Victory Munitions, the factory at the heart of the series' action. Her world is blown wide open by the unlikely sisterhood she finds there, but she soon finds herself faced with a big decision: whether to defy her family and societal expectations and join the working girls on the dangerous floor of the factory.
Blue Shift claims the honour of building Victory Munitions' millionth bomb, and film director Russell Joseph is searching for the perfect poster-girl to star in his recruitment newsreel. While he has eyes on Gladys, Management chooses Betty who, urged by Kate, accepts. Meanwhile, a rise in factory hankypanky prompts Lorna to pitch Harold on a factory "code of conduct" governing relations between men and women. Bolstered by Russell, Gladys finally finds the courage to confront her fiancé James about his past - only to be hit with an unexpected confession.
Kitten has to beg, borrow and bribe in order to recreate the Softball Championship Gerald Sr. lost 23 years ago. But with one at bat can he make the hit that eluded him so many years ago? Chantel and Albert stay with Kitten and Gerald and quickly prove to be the house-guests-from-hell.
