MomentsNina and Joy, begin a romantic rivalry triangle as they compete to win over Fabian's affection. In one of the episodes, Fabian tells Joy to drop the article about Senkhara, but she tells Fabian "Kiss me. If it means that much to you..." Fabian leans over to kiss her, but then backs away and admits he still loves Nina, who hears from behind the door and becomes very happy. Joy, seems very jealous of Nina in Season 2 as Fabian gets closer to Nina. Joy desperately wanted to date Fabian, but he loved Nina instead of her.
Joy wrote a vicious article about Nina, criticizing her for skipping class, suggesting that her scholarship should be revoked, and criticizing her for not having her grandmother flown home when she got sick. Joy apologized to Nina for writing that article, but she doesn't seem to mean that because she tells Patricia that she wrote the article, so Nina would get the idea and go back to America. She believes that Nina stole everything from her and that Sibuna shunned her after Nina came. Patricia defends Nina, and tells Joy that Nina never stole anything from her. Joy is very jealous of Nina, and she and Patricia's argument culminates with Joy telling Patricia that she didn't need her anymore. An angry and annoyed Patricia leaves the room. Joy starts crying after that, pained from losing her best friend.Joy agreed to work as a strategist for Fabian in the Sennet game and seemed to be genuinely concerned about getting Nina back, despite their rivalry. She also got extremely angry when Amber expressed concern that she would throw the game on purpose, so that Nina would stay trapped. She insisted that she would never do something like that, despite not getting along. At the end, Joy helps Sibuna and reconciliates with them (becoming Patricia's best friend again). Nina also started crying from guilt after almost killing her.When Fabian offered that Joy can help Sibuna looking for the key (from Trudy's vision) while Amber makes a face Nina agrees. She hugs Nina at the end. She helps them get the Mask of Anubis and helps Nina and the others escape. Joy tells Fabian to aks Nina out, and she is happy when Fabian and Nina get back together. Now Nina and Joy are good friends. Joy has given up on her crush on Fabian Rutter, though because of their close friendship, during the finale, threw herself at Nina's fire blast and nearly died. At the start of Season 3 Joy was annoyed that Nina was not returning.
