Frag­ile Aly For­rester (Ash­lyn Pearce) has never re­ally re­cov­ered from her mom Darla’s (Schae Har­ri­son) death. And now she never will. On the night of Tues­day 9 Au­gust, Aly de­lib­er­ately at­tacks her cousin St­effy (Jac­que­line MacInnes Wood) on the same stretch of the Pa­cific Coast High­way where St­effy’s mom Tay­lor (Hunter Tylo) ran over and killed Darla in 2006. The two strug­gle, with Aly de­ter­mined to kill a ter­ri­fied St­effy and as Ivy For­rester (Ash­leigh Brewer) races to in­ter­vene, St­effy takes a swing at Aly, who slips and hits her head on a rock on Thurs­day 11 Au­gust. At least that’s the story St­effy is telling when paramedics take away Aly’s life­less body. Ivy claims to have seen some­thing dif­fer­ent and she has the video footage on her phone to prove it…


There’s no doubt that Aly wanted St­effy dead. History has been re­peat- ing it­self over the past fort­night as Aly has con­structed a new stalker shrine to how much she hates “slutty” St­effy, the same way she ob­sessed over Hope’s (Kim Mat­ula) soiled pu­rity in April 2015. The last time that Aly went nuts, her mom Darla’s spirit urged her to “get rid of the filth” at For­rester and she at­tacked Hope’s lover Wy­att (Darin Brooks) be­fore tak­ing a swing at Tay­lor with an axe in May 2015. On Tues­day 9 Au­gust, when dark vi­sions of her mom Darla urge Aly to kill St­effy the same way that Tay­lor killed Darla, Aly tries to run St­effy down at the side of the road. When Aly misses on Wed­nes­day 10 Au­gust, she jumps out of her car and the two ar­gue briefly be­fore Aly launches her­self at St­effy, armed with St­effy’s tyre iron. Dodg­ing and shriek­ing, there’s noth­ing St­effy can say to talk Aly down and she’s forced to de­fend her­self – or die!


Back at For­rester on Thurs­day 11 Au­gust, a shaken Rick (Ja­cob Young) tells Aly’s fa­ther Thorne ( Win­sor Har­mon), who’s just ar­rived back in LA, about Ivy’s got the whole fight on tape. Well al­most the whole thing…


But on Tues­day 16 Au­gust, the day af­ter Aly’s funeral, Ivy start chal­leng­ing St­effy about her claims that Aly slipped with such con­vic­tion that view­ers will start doubt­ing what they’ve seen, more so af­ter they see Ivy’s video. Ivy is con­vinced that St­effy killed Aly by hit­ting her in the head with that tyre iron, but St­effy is equally con­vinced that she saw Aly move to avoid the blow, then fall. “She truly be­lieves there’s no way she killed Aly,” re­veals Jac­que­line. “It’s a blur for her. Ev­ery­thing hap­pened so quickly, St­effy doesn’t know what’s real and what’s not. Like she’s men­tally checked out and gone into pri­mal mode.” As for that video, Jac­que­line points out, “Why is there video? Think about it. Ivy is driving down the road and comes across her best friend Aly at­tack­ing St­effy and in­stead of try­ing to stop the fight, she records it? Who does that?” That’s a good point, ac­tu­ally!
