09/28/2005 Kendall Tells Derek Zach Was Protecting Julia

"Mimi questions Di about the Dragon, specifically his identity. Di refuses to cooperate despite Mimi telling her that Kevin and his girlfriend were murdered and Julia is now missing. Di insists that she doesn't have the information that Mimi is seeking.

Tad interrogates Zach who is in jail after being arrested for Jimmy's murder. Zach remains stubbornly silent, refusing to confide in Tad. Elsewhere in the police station, Derek is trying to get information from Kendall as he takes her to see Zach. Hoping to force her cooperation, Derek lets her know that he has information that Kendall was present when Jimmy was killed. Kendall is surprised but doesn't say anything to Derek. When he steps out of hearing range, Greenlee tries to reason with Kendall. She points out that Kendall could very well end up in jail if she remains married to Zach. Kendall reminds Greenlee that she is protected by spousal privilege and then follows Derek to Zach's cell. Zach is not happy to see Kendall and warns her to not say anything to the authorities. Later, when Derek brings Di down to Zach's cell, Kendall decides to defend her husband. She tells Derek that Zach did not murder Jimmy. Jimmy was going to kill Julia and Zach was only protecting her. She insists that Julia will back up her story. Derek decides to release Zach and let everyone go. Once they are out of hearing range he orders surveillance on all of them hoping that one of them will lead the police to the Dragon.

When Kendall, Greenlee and Zach arrive home, Kendall sends Greenlee out of the room so that she can talk to Zach. Zach asks her why Kendall came to his defense earlier, is it because she cares for him? Kendall admits that she does but then quickly adds that she's trying to protect her business partner. Kendall in turn asks him if he intends to continue endangering his life for Julia. Zach assures her that he has no intention of dying. He has too much to live for. As Zach prepares he mentions the surrogacy and wonders if Kendall still intends to go through with it. Zach is not happy to learn that Kendall already went through with her plans and may, at that moment, be pregnant.

She points out that she had more leverage with Adam if she consummated the marriage because it won't be easy for him to divorce her.
