NEIGHBOURS’ beloved Amy Greenwood has struggled to bond with her daughter Zara Selwyn since she arrived on Ramsay Street earlier this month, however, will the devilish teenager end up killing her mother as their feud goes too far?
Since her return to the Channel 5 series in 2020, Amy (Jacinta Stapleton) has been at the center of a lot of drama on Neighbours. Zara (Freya Van Dyke) came looking for her estranged mother, who she seems to have a deep disdain for the Ramsay Street favorite, just as it appeared she had finally adjusted into life in Erinsborough.
Amy will be admitted to the hospital in the near future after a fight with her teenage daughter, but may Zara be involved, and could this lead to her mother’s departure from the show?
Amy is still recovering from some of the injuries she incurred during the storm that roared through Ramsay Street when the drama begins.
She has also lost her work, as the Flamingo Bar, where she was the manager prior to the disaster, was devastated by the hurricane.
This causes major concerns for the cherished heroine, who must carefully consider how she will support herself and her kid.
She chooses to start a new business and start a new enterprise in a split second decision while job looking, but she quickly regrets being so rash.
At the same time, Zara will have begun studying at the local high school but she gets into some bother with her teachers and classmates.
With so much on her plate at school, her mother’s decision to invest in a new business makes her upset.
As a result, she sets off the school’s fire alarms, causing a ruckus, and is scolded by Jane Harris (Annie Jones).
Amy is initially enraged with her daughter for being so irresponsible and causing so much havoc, but it isn’t long before she softens.
Amy’s daughter confesses that she simply did it to garner her mother’s attention, making the beloved character feel awful.
The mother and daughter quickly put their disagreements aside and appear to be turning a new page in their relationship.
However, it isn’t long until Zara lashes out at their mother once more, this time forcing Amy to battle for her life.
When the teenager storms out of the row, she pushes her mother hard, and Amy feels the pain because she hasn’t recovered from her injuries.
The beloved figure collapses to the ground in excruciating pain and grips her stomach tightly.
Because she does not believe her mother is gravely injured, her daughter leaves her to fend for herself as she calls for aid.
Soon after, the mother of three passes out, and she is only able to get to the hospital because Ned Willis (Ben Hall) finds her.
Once she’s with the medical team, Ned and Zara will have to wait a long time to find out if she’ll make it.
The adolescent is filled with regret since she knows she could have done more to assist her mother, who was in severe need of assistance.
If Amy dies as a result of this, her daughter may face time in prison if she tells the authorities she was the one who killed her mother.
Amy’s stint on the show would come to a devastating end, as she finally felt like she had made progress with her daughter.
But will Zara keep her deadly secret harboured and fail to tell the authorities she had a part to play in the whole thing?
The actress who plays Amy, Jacinta, claimed she isn’t surprised by her daughter’s irresponsible behavior in an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk about her character’s latest storyline.
According to the heroine of the daytime drama, “I don’t think Amy is surprised since she recognizes herself in Zara.
“It’s how Amy first got her start in Erinsborough! Amy, on the other hand, understands Zara and her motivations.
She, on the other hand, has a great deal of guilt and believes it is her fault that Zara is acting out, thus she nearly bears responsibility for many of Zara’s behaviors.
“The connection between Amy and Zara is so tense, with Amy feeling guilty and Zara furious and resentful, and a lot of the people on Ramsay Street have kids and ‘know what they’re doing’ as parents,” says one resident.
Asked if Zara’s presence on Ramsay Street could end up with Amy leaving the show, the actress said: “I’m not sure.
“Nothing is off the cards, Amy has left before, so she could leave again,” the soap star added so could she have been hinting at Amy’s demise?
Discussing being back on the show for over a year now, Jacinta explained: “It’s so fun – Amy is just so fun and fabulous.
“Dressing up in Amy’s heels with her dresses and lots of hot pink outfits is really gorgeous, I just love it.
“Amy is a really fun and dynamic character and I adore playing her,” she remarked so could this be another precursor to making an exit as she reflects back on her time on the show?
