Chloe comes between Victor and Maggie this week when the tycoon reams out his girlfriend for letting Chloe move in and demands that Maggie kick her out. Maggie refuses to back down and shows Victor the door.
"Chloe realizes that Maggie is a true friend, someone that she can trust, no matter what," says Nadia Bjorlin. "She's touched that Maggie would stand up for her, even at the risk of possibly losing Victor."
A despondent Chloe heads to The Cheatin' Heart to drown her sorrows and meets a charming man named Quinn. "Chloe thinks he's a nice guy, and she's flattered by his attention," says the actress. "People have been so hard on her lately that she appreciates someone is being nice to her, even if he is a stranger."
Chloe finds herself drawn to the newcomer. "Chloe hasn't been making the smartest choices lately," Bjorlin points out. "She's been spending a lot of time in the bars by herself. She's lonely and enjoys the company."
They really are taking Chloe down a different road. I'm not sure if Days has ever explored this before. I mean we've met people who have been on the wrong side of the track to begin with and then changed their ways (i.e., Melanie), but Chloe is a leading lady who is going downhill fast. Since we have watched all of it unfold from the start, it seems believable. I'm looking forward to seeing how this plays out. Nadia has shown that she has the acting skills to make it work.
I agree, if done well, this could be an interesting story. I'm a little sad, though, that even with Maggie's help and kindness that Chloe doesn't see her own value and stay away from alcohol. I'll watch and wait as this unfolds.
