History of Vimal Patel:
Vimal was elated when Rama told him she was pregnant but he worried that she wasn’t “showing”. Upon his release weeks later, he learned from Aubrey that she faked her pregnancy to help him cope. Adding insult to injury, Vimal caught Rama locking lips with bartender Cris Vega and abandoned her after deciding her lies were too unforgivable.
Vimal went to a bar and befriended The Sun newspaper owner, Todd Manning. Todd spilled that one of the babies Vimal switched was Lt. John McBains’! Upset, Vimal decided to tell him but Todd offered him a job with a staggering salary. Struggling over Rama’s pregnancy lies, Vimal left John a note. However, Officer Brody Lovitt (the baby’s surrogate father) intercepted and pled with Vimal to keep his secret.
Saddled with even more confusion, Vimal attempted to resign from 'The Sun' when his parents suddenly arrived to help with their would-be grandchild. Refusing to lie about the pregnancy, Vimal hid them in the office and sought Rama’s help. After returning and finding Brody with them, Vimal sent his parents to his apartment. Brody begged him to keep quiet by tossing around his own deceptions and out of pity he sealed the deal on Brody’s request.
Unaware of her intentions, Rama arrived to meet Vimal and his parents looking very pregnant; though the plan went well at first, her “water balloon” began leaking! His parents were aghast and demanded the truth. After Rama explained her actions and apologized, Vimal unraveled his and his parents forgave them. Later, he and Rama reunited.
After Todd death, Vimal was the only one now aware of Brody’s secret. Brody soon confronted him again about remaining quiet.
