"I still love you"

Jake Stewart is a Senior Officer at Wentworth Detention Centre. Jake served as deputy governor when Will was suspended. Jake was demoted back to senior officer at the start of season 6.

Time At Wentworth Edit

Jake is shown to be a sneaky, egotistical, cowardly and highly intelligent man. While he initially comes off a charming, easy going officer, it is soon apparent that Jake is a corrupt officer who specialises in dealing drugs, Jake has also shown to be capable of cold blooded murder when under pressure, as he shot Nils Jesper dead and blew up the van he was in to hide any evidence and so that he could not reach court and give evidence against Joan Ferguson.  Vera threatened to sack Jake at the end of season 5, but Jake made his move and said he could lift the lid on Vera for allowing Bea to escape.

Season 5 and 6Edit

Jake and Vera don't make up during the last half of season 5 or season 6, and Jake later finds out that Vera is pregnant and he says he can make it work, but Vera refuses and tells him he will have nothing to do in her life or the babies. 

Season 7Edit

Jake is still seen on extremely shakey ground with Vera, and in the premiere is very protective of her, stopping a

This is seen again when Vera is held hostage in the yard and screams at the inmate to let her go, Jake is later seen in the visitors centre for Rita's wedding, but holds her back once she recieves devasting news. 

Jake continues his jealously when Vera starts to become more attached to Dr Miller, but gets his nose out of joint when Linda receives the promotion to Acting Deputy as Will tells him he can't trust him and he at first thinks its a joke Linda would even go for acting deputy. Jake is also there when Liz wants to tango with someone but not one of the prisoners know how to, Jake decides to tango and tick of an item on Liz's list. Jake in episode three meets old work colleague Sean Brody who transferred from Walford to Wentworth, Jake takes another strong disliking to him, and tells him to "go fuck himself" but not before he says not to "start shit up" meaning Jake was possibly involved with the drug running at Walford.

Jake is seen in episode 4 firstly checking for drugs in the kitchen, and he finds them, he becomes furious when Will doesn't slot her for the drugs and has a go at Sean, he later becomes furious at Vera when she told Miller about the sex of the baby and that he is sick of fighting to be a father because he is trying to make the prison safe for her. Jake's past is also revealed when he speaks with Sean he admits that he was going straight after being gay and turning his life around after years of being bent.

Notes Edit
