Ivy should remember what happened to poor cousin Aly before she pushes Steffy to attempted murder!
Weekdays SABC3 (*193) 18:00
Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) is about to be taught the price of meddling in affairs that don’t concern her… again! Despite Steffy’s fiancé Liam (Scott Clifton) begging her not to interfere, on Thursday 22 December Steffy tattles to Liam’s brother Wyatt (Darin Brooks) about his lover Ivy’s (Ashleigh Brewer) supposed fling with Steffy’s brother Thomas (Pierson Fodé) on Wednesday 14 December. Remember how insanely angry Aly Forrester (Ashlyn Pearce) was when she attacked Steffy with a tyre iron on Wednesday 10 August? Ivy is almost that angry and confronts Steffy on Monday 26 December. And somehow Ivy also “trips” into what looks like a fatal fall – just how Aly did on Thursday 11 August when she hit her head on a rock and died during a fight with Steffy. It’s starting to look suspicious.
On Monday 26 December, Ivy corners Steffy backstage on the Forrester runway, ignoring the electricians who’re trying to fix a fault in exposed wiring. When Steffy tries to walk away, Ivy grabs her arm and rants, “You just push me and you push me.” Steffy then physically pushes Ivy… into the live cables! “We have to surprise people. We have to kill people and do the unexpected,” says exec producer Brad Bell. And what could be more unexpected – and incriminating – than Steffy claiming to have “just pushed” another of her cousins?
Steffy screams for help as she pulls a lightly toasted Ivy from the wires on Tuesday 27 December. Aside from her genuine desire not to hurt Ivy physically, Steffy knows just how bad this will look. She’s right, because at the hospital Liam immediately begs, “What I need from you is to look me in the eyes and say that the reason Ivy is in that hospital bed has nothing, literally zero, to do with you.” If only she could. But on Thursday 29 December, after he corners her into confessing, Liam rants at Steffy, “Why would you push Ivy into an electric panel you knew was hot? [live]” And when Steffy says that she didn’t mean to hurt Ivy, he snaps, “Like how you didn’t mean to hurt Aly?”
Getting into a fight with Steffy is a bad idea. Ivy isn’t the first Forrester to be left in a heap by Steffy.
