Why do you think she paid Jimmy the money?

I don't think the money meant anything to Vivien. Yes, she gave it to Jimmy because she wanted to test to see if her feelings about him were true. She trusted no one and when she opened up to Jimmy she had to know that her instincts were correct. I also think she wanted to defy her husband. It was her way of fighting back.

I kind of thought that she gave Jimmy the money for purely practical reasons, hoping that it would end Dolly's scheme and get both Jimmy and Dolly out of her life. I think she cared for Jimmy but knew it was dangerous for him to be in her life and that Dolly's scheme was likely to get them all killed by Henry. Giving him the money was her way of caring enough about his safety to let him go, like kimk said. I do agree, though, that she didn't care about the money.

I think she gave him the money because she loved him and wanted him to be happy. She could never escape her husband and she was willing to take the punishment that she knew she'd get so Jimmy could live his planned life. I think she knew his character better that Dorothy did.
