HollywoodLife.com has new details about the impending tragedy & how it will affect Ivy.

After months away from 90210, Raj (Manish Dayal) is returning for the show’s March 20 episode — but sadly, he won’t be around for long. Ivy (Gillian Zinser) learns that her estranged husband is still battling cancer, and as leaked funeral photos revealed, she only has a small window of time in which to say goodbye. “It’s a very emotional arc for Ivy and it involves her whole crew of friends,” Michael Steger, who plays Navid, tells HollywoodLife.com. “It’s pretty dark for a few episodes.”

Michael’s character returns for the March 27 episode, “Blue Ivy,” when Ivy is already deep in depression — as the title suggests.

But Michael says Ivy isn’t the only person rattled by Raj’s tragic death.

“It’s really going to affect a lot of people,” Michael says, adding that Manish was “a great asset to the show” and will be missed on set.
