But unbeknown to Colby, troubled teen Bella is keeping a close watch on him. So when Bella spots Colby and Mackenzie sharing a steamy kiss, she’s anything but happy. And even less so when Colby later lies to her about his whereabouts.

Let’s just say that Bella’s reaction will cause major – and possibly irreparable – damage to Colby and Mackenzie’s relationship.
Bella has certainly been the centre of a lot of drama of late. Mortified after last week catching Bellaon the verge of setting Salt alight, Willow (Sarah Roberts) and Dean (Patrick O’Connor) demanded answers from the deeply troubled teen.
But Bella, who has certainly had a hugely traumatic year, was staunchly unrepentant.
She wanted to hurt Mackenzie, she revealed, for breaking the heart of Colby, Bella’s older brother.
“As we know very well by now, Bella is not the best at thinking things over,” says her portrayer, Courtney.
“But unbeknown to Bella, her intentions for burning down Salt stemmed from a place of vulnerability. Mackenzie, just like Chelsea, hurt Colby and broke Bella’s friendship and trust.
“Bella sees Mackenzie as a threat and will go to any extreme to get revenge.”
After another attempt to talk reason with Bella went nowhere fast, Willow and Dean feared the teen’s vengeful streak was far from over.
“Not even Willow or Dean can help Bella see the danger in her actions,” says Courtney.
