Zach vs. Ryan: Who is Kendall’s Soulmate?
We all know that Kendall Hart is not a fading violet and she is never without a man for very long. But, though, the beautiful Pine Valley vixen has had a string of beaus, there have only been two who have changed her life: Ryan Lavery and Zach Slater.
So we had to ask, on this Valentine’s Day, who is Kendall’s true soulmate?
First, we have to dispense with all of the “other” men in her life. Men who attracted her attention but for whatever reason never held on to her heart. There was Anton (her first husband) who married Kendall so they could both get back at parents Erica and Dmitri. There was Del, with whom she fell in love while writing a tell-all book about Erica. Del went to Florida with Kendall but a few months later she returned, alone, and began to fall for Ryan Lavery (we’ll get more in-depth with Ryan in a second). There was Aidan, who actually broke up Kendall and Ryan’s first engagement, and then Michael Cambias, who was a rapist. Ethan Cambias seemed to have the potential to steal Kendall’s heart but it turned out her real attraction was to his money. This, however, brought Zach Slater to town. During this time, however, Kendall was still hung up on Ryan. So let’s focus on the piece of Kendall’s heart that belongs to Ryan.
Why is Kendall continuously attracted to him?
A lot of the attraction probably stems from the fact that Ryan has always stood by Kendall. When she was accused of arson he stood by her and he shot his own brother to save her life and the lives of a few other women. The one drawback for Kendall was Ryan's apparent undying devotion to Greenlee. He fell hard for Greens, which broke Kendall's heart. She did, however, agree to be a surrogate for Greens and Ryan's child.
And that is when Zach entered the picture. When Ethan Cambias showed up in town, Zach Slater wasn't far behind. Zach was almost immediately attracted to the lovely Ms. Hart but she wasn't interested in him. Zach did win her heart, though, and quickly became the rock that Kendall had always needed in her life. Zach stood by her when the world learned she switched her own eggs for Greenlee's and when Kendall went into early labor he barricaded himself into her hospital room so that the doctor's wouldn't take her child. Even Ryan wouldn't do that!
Ryan, Kendall and Zach eventually have made quite the threesome, with Kendal loving and relying on Zach but sometimes turning to Ryan for advice and friendship.
Which begs the question: who is Kendall's greatest love? Is it Ryan who offered her friendship when no one else would? Or is it Zach, who loves her despite her many flaws and would do anything to protect her? Fans, you get to decide! Leave a comment here or start your own thread on the message boards.
