SOD: Vivian has a son - Quinn!; 6/14 Issue

Vivian runs into Quinn in the park and is surprised to see the man who is actually her never-before-mentioned son.

"First of all, he's just lovely," raves Louise Sorel of newcomer Bren Foster. "This is a new story where suddenly I find out that Vivian has a son who is Australian. I was trying to re-create an immediate connection with someone Vivian probably hasn't seen since he was 10 -- or something like that -- and to hook in with him, which was quite easy because he has these wonderful, soft brown, doe eyes."

Sorel learned of the twist in the tale after Foster was hired. "Gary Tomlin introduced us," she recalls. "There is a certain coloring and everything that works. It's plausible."

So, what does it do to the backstory with Lawrence, whom Vivian considered a son because she supposedly never had one? "It comes out in the continuing story that raised Lawrence as her son in her mind," Sorel explains. "Basically, it's one of those situations where you've had a bad relationship with the father and he, in this case, told her to go away and never darken his doorstep again. Consequently, Vivian has tracked Quinn down, but she's never spoken of him. She sort of denied his real existence, even though she kept track of him, because it was so hurtful. She's always said that she never had a child, except Philip, who she stole - the embryo. In fact, it's not true. We only learn these things after the fact. Lawrence comes into it a lot."

Vivian is unsettled to see the now-grown man in her presence. "I would assume that he has a lot of information on Vivian," notes the actress. "There are a lot of things that may not ever be spoken."

Quinn, meanwhile, does have an agenda - but with Chloe. This week he blackmails her into becoming one of his escorts. "Quinn is aware of Chloe's hardship, so there is an element to him where he thinks that he actually is helping her," explains Foster. "Quinn doesn't think that prostitution is such a bad thing. It's his business. He sees it as providing a service that wealthy men need and also provides a way of life where women can make a lot of money in a relatively short time."

Though Chloe balks, "Quinn tries to get her to see the benefits of being employed in such a way," says the actor. "He's a very smooth operator."

Louise, why even bother trying to peddle this stuff? No it does NOT make sense. Now Vivian is the victim of a man who told her to get lost??? I'm not buying for ONE minute that if Vivian had a son out there she would just leave him. Yeah, f-ing right.

Can't you just picture her saying that? She sounds as mystified as the viewers will be. Thank goodness they'll be ignoring/undoing this by the end of the summer. I do feel bad for Louise though that this is the regime she was brought back under.

Thanks Lysie!

Huh. That actually surprised me. I don't find this any more implausible than Carly suddenly having a daughter older than Jennifer's. It actually sort of works....sort of.

That sentence really was the best part. The rest of the article made no sense to me, lol.

While I like this twist..I can see this ending badly for Vivian and lead to Sorel's exit...PLEASE SOAP GODS..DON'T LET IT HAPPEN!

We need a resident bad girl in Salem, and Vivian fits the bill perfectly!

I wonder if Quinn is going to have a good story, but that is unlikely.

Agreed.

It doesn't make sense at all.

riiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

This makes me even more about the character of Vivian right now. She had so much potential to be another baddie and even make Victor and Stefano shake in their $500 but they have messed up her character and history so much that they might end up cutting their losses. I hope I'm wrong though. She can be as bad ass and crazy as they come.

"Even iron bends"..Victoria Rowell

I thought Vivian's biological clock stopped ticking back in the early 1900s?? She's older than Methusela. It's a wonder her son isn't drawing Social Security.

P.S- I kid, of course. I love Louise Sorel to death and don't want her coming after me!!! :D :D :D :D

GET EM STEPH!!

I like this and it makes perfect sense IMO. They explained it just the way I wanted them too.

We don't know much about Vivian's background other than her Alamain family history and histories with Victor and Stefano. I can buy this and I think it actually explains her obsession and excessive clinging to Lawrence, Nicholas, and Philip. She hated losing her son and she wasn't about to lose three guys she loved like sons. It adds some depth to all that and it's something new and fresh for Vivian.

Too bad she and Quinn aren't long for the show. I like him and Vivian is finally becoming interesting again. Ugh.
