Throughout the Series[]

Season 2[]

Viv is assigned as Jackson's tutor during his injury-related break from swimming. At the beginning, she behaves coldly against him, but after a while they become friends. She helps Jackson study for his role of Romeo in the school play. He gives her advice on how to get closer to her crush and fellow Quiz Head member, Dex.

Later, Viv walks in on Jackson while he has a panic attack at Otis' party and was about to hurt himself again. She gives him emotional support, but also tells him that he needs professional help and expresses worry about his safety. After his defensive reaction, Viv tells Jackson's mothers about her worries. At first, Jackson is angry at her about that, but later he understands her actions. At the end of season 2, their friendship remains close.

Season 3[]

Viv is now dating Eugene, with whom she frequently sexts, although she is at first bewildered by his medieval fantasies. She initially sees the arrival of Hope Haddon as new headmistress as a great opportunity for her academic career, especially after Hope appoints Viv as the new Head Girl, thus taking Jackson's position. This puts her quite at odds with Jackson, who Viv accuses of suddenly caring about the students and their well-being only to please his new crush, Cal Bowman. Eventually though, Viv realizes the nefarious side of Hope's management of the school, and secretly records her as Hope clearly shows her disdain for the students and their concerns. Viv transfers the recording to the other students, and takes part in the open school show which clearly states the students' pride about talking about sex. However, this eventually backfires as the school now faces closure, but it still helps Viv to make amends with Jackson and Cal.
