WILD IVY WON’T BE TAMED!
A teenage rebel creates a one-girl crime wave that rocks Why hope on Doctor Doctor
Arriving in Whyhope, Charlie’s father Carlito surprised her and Matt by bringing extra “baggage” with him: Ivy, the teenage daughter of Carlito’s current girlfriend who’s away on a meditation course. While Charlie and Matt were initially distracted by Charlie’s rose-coloured reunion with her unpredictable father, and his unexpected frisson with Meryl, Ivy soon made them take notice of her.
Making friends, Ivy (Annabel Wolfe) went on a drinking binge, only to collapse with alcohol poisoning! Luckily, Hugh (Rodger Corser) and Penny (Hayley McElhinney) were on hand to revive her. Immensely grateful and seeking clarity from the incident, Charlie (Nicole da Silva) realised her dad needed a break from his tough life and invited him and Ivy to stay in town. SEP 3-17, 2018
It seems like a lovely invitation for a stay in the country – until Carlito (Vince Colosimo) suddenly ups and disappears without any explanation! He’s left Ivy behind... and Charlie and Matt (Ryan Johnson) at loggerheads, wondering what they’re going to do with this tempestuous teen!
Deciding the renegade needs educating, Charlie takes Ivy to school with her – however paying attention in class is the last thing on either’s agenda. Neglecting her teaching duties, Charlie’s too blindsided by her father’s abrupt departure and Matt’s objections about Ivy to notice that she’s disappeared, too! Suddenly, Charlie’s personal feelings must take a back seat as she sets off on a cross-country chase to bring the delinquent to heel!
Once the drama of the day has subsided, Charlie and Matt sit down to dinner and deliberation, nally concluding that Ivy can stay with them... for now. With their minds quickly turning to other things, namely the return to town of Matt’s primary school crush April (Miranda Tapsell), and Charlie’s sense that something still exists between them, the Knights lose track of Ivy once again!
This time, Ivy’s antics are more wayward and the consequences for Charlie and Matt could prove to be extremely costly as she drops a bombshell on her husband that puts their marriage under the darkest of clouds. TVS
