The Bold and the Beautiful's Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) seems to have it all these days. The fashion heiress is running her family's fashion house alongside her father Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) and true love Liam (Scott Clifton).
While Steffy and the gang over at Forrester Creations were celebrating the success of their new line, California Freedom, her troubled cousin Aly (Ashlyn Pearce) lured her to the exact same spot Steffy's mother Taylor (Hunter Tylo) mowed her deceased mom Darla (Schae Harrison) down years ago. The poor girl tried to recreate the same events that lead to Darla's death, but ended up joining her in the upper room while their Australian kin Ivy (Ashleigh Brewer) watched and filmed in horror.
Viewers are split on whether or not Steffy remembers what she did or if she's blacked the entire thing out. TV Insider's Michael Logan spoke with Wood, who cleared up what she knows.
Does Steffy truly not know she killed Aly or is she in denial?
It’s a blur for her. Everything happened so quickly, Steffy doesn’t know what’s real and what’s not. She can’t begin to comprehend what really happened. It’s like she’s mentally checked out and gone into primal mode. She truly believes there’s no way she killed Aly. Plus, she’s also being very careful about who she opens her mouth to because the Forresters are so famous. They’re followed by paparazzi 24/7. They live life under a microscope.
Speaking of paparazzi, Steffy is clueless to Ivy recording Aly's last moments and is stuck on what she should do. Wood gives the skinny on how Ivy's amateur film making comes into play. According to Wood:
It gets even crazier than that. Ivy will share the video with Steffy’s brother Thomas and promises to not go to the police if he makes sure she’s the new face of Forrester Creations. So, basically, she’s willing to hide the truth in order to be a model. That’s blackmail. You’d think maybe she’d think big and use the video to blackmail her way into Steffy’s job as president of Forrester. But to be a model? [Laughs] Listen, if Steffy had another tire iron right now, she’d be using it on Ivy!
