Sammy Davis was designed to be a bitch with a capital T and she didn't fail. Sammy had a troubled childhood after she lost her mother to cancer and her abuse from her father Henry. This lead Sammy to become distrustful and often her mental stability was called into question.
During the early season of City Girls, Jack Foster played a low key role until he met unpredictable Sammy Davis, Sammy lit a spark in Jack and completely changed his life, not quite for the better. Sammy had a real jealous streak which seemed to unleash around Ashley Woods, in the season one finale Sammy broke up with Jack after accusing him of cheating on her with Ashley.
Sammy and Jack quickly reunited, however, he kept his one night stand with Holly Newman a secret. It was soon revealed that Drew not only had a past with Sean, but he also had a connection to Sammy, which soon became obvious when Sammy attempted to seduce him, leading to a battle between Ashley and Sammy. In spite, Ashley ended revealing all about Jack and Holly's one night stand leading Sammy to take revenge. Holly's relationship with her university lecturer Tom Holden was exposed thanks to Sammy.
Sammy's own past was revealed in two special episodes which revealed how she was sexually abused by her own father after her mother's death. This led to a very unwanted pregnancy and an abortion. A twisted Sammy attempted to kill her father by drugging him and then stabbing him, but when it came down to it, she couldn't go through with it.
When Sammy slept with Drew, this gave Jack the push he needed to break up with Sammy and finally be with Nicole, but Sammy dropped a bombshell in the season finale- she was pregnant.
