Soap World - - NEWS -

Teenager Bethany Platt had hoped she’d buried the trauma she ex­pe­ri­enced when she was sex­u­ally groomed and re­peat­edly as­saulted by her ex Nathan and his mates, but all of her old demons are once again dredged up...

Be­com­ing at­tracted to flir­ta­tious and cheeky new­comer Ryan Con­nor (Ryan Prescott), Bethany (Lucy Fal­lon) hap­pily agrees to go on a few ca­sual dates, hop­ing he’s the guy to help re­build her trust in men again. How­ever, things quickly spi­ral out of con­trol when the cou­ple finds them­selves alone and be­gin kiss­ing. At first, Bethany re­sponds, but when Ryan’s advances be­come more passionate, she’s over­come with thoughts of her past and vi­o­lently lashes out at him.

Stunned by the at­tack, Ryan can only stare help­lessly as Bethany runs from the flat to com­pose her­self. In the af­ter­math, she feels aw­ful for hurt­ing Ryan and sug­gests they start over on a double date with Craig (Col­son Smith) and Kayla (Mol­lie Win­nard).

Ryan agrees, but the din­ner soon de­te­ri­o­rates, thanks to Kayla’s be­hav­iour to­wards Craig. Bethany im­me­di­ately turns her at­ten­tion to Craig, fear­ing her ex-boyfriend and good friend is be­ing conned by the very strange Kayla. For­tu­nately, Ryan also no­tices some­thing strange about Kayla, but what both he and Bethany are un­aware of is that she’s ac­tu­ally the daugh­ter of Neil Clifton, one of Bethany’s rapists, who wants re­venge on Bethany for hav­ing her father jailed! News of Neil’s lost ap­peal against his sen­tence com­forts Bethany. But as Ryan and Bethany head to Ibiza for a lit­tle rest and re­lax­ation, Kayla seeks re­venge against Bethany by ma­nip­u­lat­ing and hurt­ing Craig. Bethany quickly no­tices and reaches out to help Craig, un­aware she’s up­set­ting Ryan by ig­nor­ing him, and also in­flam­ing Kayla’s ha­tred for her. It sparks a hor­ri­fy­ing or­deal that leaves Bethany’s life in grave dan­ger!

...Bethany (Lucy Fal­lon) sends Ryan (Ryan Prescott) mixed mes­sages!
