Phillip Jeanmarie confirms my suspicions
In a recent interview I conducted with Workshop star Phillip Jeanmarie he discussed his tenure at Passions and stated that he was slated to only be there for four days and then was kept around. I always knew that James E. Reilly had written himself into a corner, because he had no idea how to move forward after it was revealed that Chad was Eve and Julian's son. Since he had written a 5 year story bible. I know for sure that that was how it was intended to be all along. All the switches and changes after year 5 where he made Chad out to be Liz's son was just something he came up with. I'm sure he didn't believe the series would last that long. So when Vincent was found out to be the child that was another spur of the moment idea.
