"Sometimes I feel like the whole world is moving past me and I'm just standing still."

Sue 'Boomer' Jenkins is a main character and an inmate at Wentworth Prison, known as 'Boomer' or 'Booms' she stands up for her friends and befriends Maxine after several run ins. Boomer is used as muscle in the first few seasons but becomes more friendly in the later seasons.

Time in WentworthEdit

Boomer is usually called upon for her physical strength and even offers her services to others such as Bea or Franky but develops as a caring and compassionate character during Maxine's chemotherapy and biopsy; even going as far as to offering some of her breasts to Maxine for replacement.

In Season 5, Boomer will be put in charge by inmate Sonia Stevens for her 'Green wall' project, and will take this responsibility as serious as possible, seeing in it the first chance in her life to realise something positive.

After realising that Franky and Allie have an escape plan which involves the project, she tells Franky that she will report it to the guards, knowing that otherwise the 'Green wall' will be closed. Despite that, after being moved by compassion for her intimate friend, she will in the end help her escape.

During season 6, Boomer moons in the middle of the war between Kaz and Sonia, and stuns everyone when she gets her ticket for welding, including Sonia. Is later set up by Drago when she places the stick she used to assault Cherry Li (this is before she met with Sonia's lawyer) in her cell. Boomer in the season 6 finale gets the news she has wanted to here for years, she gets news that the charges for Cherry Li's assault were dropped and her parole would be coming through.  

Trivia Edit

  • Whilst being an original character, Boomer shares similar traits to that of Margo Gaffney, both are known to have violent tempers and be prone to getting locked up in Solitary.
