After learning that Steffy has quickly moved on and is engaged to Wyatt following Liam's dissapearance, Ivy lets it all out.

"Steffy, it was never going to work out between you [and Liam] after everything you did to Aly, after everything you did to me," she says bluntly. "Frankly, I think Liam just saw you for the first time, and I don't really know what he saw in you in the first place."

After learning that Steffy told Wyatt that Ivy cheated on him, the Australian Forrester was enraged. Despite the dangerous electrical zone, Ivy grew confrontational and knocked Steffy's phone out of her hand. Steffy picked it up and quickly turned around, launching Ivy straight into an electric surge.

Feeling guilty, Steffy called the hospital and had Ivy taken care of immediately. But, Steffy's concern wasn't enough for Ivy, who later drew up a restraining order against her cousin.

On a seemingly normal business day, Steffy called Ivy into her office and delivered some shocking news: Ivy had been terminated from Forrester Creations and would no longer be welcome in the building.

Both cousins argue they've stood up for what they believed in, and both felt wronged. Whose side are you on?

Following Quinn's advice, Ivy chose not to tell Liam about the deportation mixup. But after hearing him talk about his love for Steffy, Ivy finally came clean and confessed there was no longer a reason for the two to remain married. The couple quickly annulled their marriage, leaving Liam excited for a future with Steffy while Ivy tried to recover from a broken heart.

While changing her tire on the side of the road, Steffy noticed a car speeding towards her. As she moved out of the way, she was shocked to see Aly behind the wheel. Before lunging at Steffy, Aly revealed that she was on a mission to avenge her mother's death. Aly claimed Steffy had lived a spoiled life for far too long, and that it was time for her fairytale to come to an end.
