Carter wishes he could believe her, but it looks to him like she was trying to trade up to Zende. Zoe argues Zende was just a distraction from her fear. Her father, Xander and Thomas made trust difficult for her. Zoe was scared of the commitment but is now more scared of losing Carter. She wants their beautiful future and life together and pleads, “Will you give us a chance?”
