the friend­ship be­tween Missy and

Nas has al­ways been the beat­ing heart of this drama – two bright, funny, cu­ri­ous teenagers who are also deal­ing with huge chal­lenges. Tonight, Nas con­tin­ues to strug­gle with who she re­ally is. Is she a du­ti­ful Pak­istani daugh­ter who will have an ar­ranged mar­riage, or is she a mod­ern gay wo­man who will choose her own partner but risk her fa­ther’s dis­ap­proval? Missy is also strug­gling with fam­ily mat­ters when she dis­cov­ers her home life is about to get even more chaotic. With mum Si­mone as use­less as al­ways, Missy is fear­ful of what will hap­pen to her and sis­ter Hay­ley. She reaches out to teacher Emma, but is this all too much for even sur­vivor Missy to cope with?

Nas has to choose which way to jump…

…while Missy has her own prob­lems
