Years of watching General Hospital, and recent months of All My Children, have made the word "betray", and all of its forms, my second most loathed word in the English language (first: moist, much like Lily Aldrin; third: Babe), so when Zach opened up his truth-telling tour with:
Zach: You betrayed me. You broke my trust, you broke my heart. I can't let it go.
I involuntarily rolled my eyes, snorted and groaned, which was quite nearly tragic, as I was drinking water at the time. I could have died! This is the second time this week that AMC has nearly put me in physical peril, in addition to mental anguish. Watching this show is hazardous to my health!
It's not that I am opposed to Kendall and Zach airing their grievances and honestly, openly discussing the ways they've hurt each other. I think that's necessary in order for them to have anything approaching a normal relationship. Or at least as normal as a relationship can be when the male partner is keeping the female partner locked away in a secret room.
But--and there's always a but when it comes to AMC, and the but usually begins the sentence "since this is Pratt's AMC, we certainly can't hold out for anything approaching quality"--in order for that to happen, BOTH of them need to vent. It can't just be Zach throwing the word betrayal at Kendall and contemptuously throwing her past transgressions in her face. What ever happened to tit for tat?! [Vulgar "tit for tat" joke redacted because it is more fitting for a discussion of Babe and Krystal Carey than it is Zach and Kendall--Ed.] I want to see Kendall confronting him about his (many) sins, too, especially when he gives her a crystal clear opening to do so!
Zach: You gave yourself to another man.
YOU LITERALLY GAVE A PHYSICAL PART OF YOURSELF TO ANOTHER WOMAN--KENDALL'S SISTER--AND MADE A BABY WITH IT! AND YOU ALSO KILLED HER BROTHER! MY LACK OF CLOSURE ABOUT THESE TWO ISSUES IS MAKING ME ABUSE MY CAPS LOCK KEY!
