Can Imran turn things around?
As the week continues, Imran is increasingly threatened by the influence that Ripley is having on Brooke and thinks Brooke should cut Ripley loose.
However, in a bid to support Brooke, Imran later turns up in the village wearing a tutu.
Later, Brooke confides in Ripley that she doesn't feel like a girl and Ripley is intrigued. Will Ripley show support based on their own experiences?
Speaking previously about their own gender identity, Ripley actor Ki said: "I like to say that I sit within the gender spectrum in a boat."
"Imagine a lake that's got two banks, one is masculinity, and one is femininity.
"I got on my little boat in the feminine bank, and then never docked again. Just stayed on my boat, I love the water."
