- Vivian Buries Carly Alive (1993)
Vivian Alamain (Louise Sorel) hated Carly Manning (Crystal Chappell) with a burning passion because she wanted to keep Carly’s son, Nicholas. The hate was so strong that she attempted to frame the good doctor for the murder of several of her hospital patients. In her most unhinged stunt of all, Vivian used an herbal medicine to put Carly into a death-like coma. It was so convincing that Carly was considered dead and buried … but then she woke up underground in a coffin equipped with lights, an air tank, and a two-way speaker system. Vivian eventually confessed to her nephew, Lawrence (Michael Sabatino), and Carly was rescued just as she was running out of air.
