11/28/2005 Kendall Explains Why She Did It

"Greenlee drops a bombshell at the Thanksgiving dinner. She announces to all that the egg which was fertilized with Ryan's sample was Kendall's egg, not Greenlee's. Therefore, the child that Kendall is carrying is her own child. Ryan is shocked at the realization that Kendall is carrying their child not he and Greenlee's. Kendall is momentarily stunned into silence giving Greenlee and David the opportunity to lay out all of the evidence that they have recently gathered supporting their claims. When Greenlee accuses Kendall of stealing her baby, Kendall finally finds her voice and tries to explain why she did what she did. She insists that she did not steal Greenlee's child. That the night she was implanted with the fertilized egg she acted on instinct and fear that if without having Ryan's child to live for, Greenlee would not be able to deal with her grief over losing Ryan. Kendall goes on to explain that the night after the power outage she went to the clinic out of concern and discovered the worst had happened. Greenlee's embryos were no longer viable and Ryan's samples were slowly deteriorating. It was never a conscious decision but rather one motivated by love for a friend that prompted Kendall to insist that Dr. Madden help Kendall give Greenlee Ryan's child by using Kendall's eggs. Feeling betrayed, Greenlee is too angry to believe that Kendall was motivated by anything other than revenge. Greenlee accuses Kendall of wanting to hurt Greenlee because Ryan had chosen her over Kendall. Greenlee is convinced that Kendall intentionally used her eggs so that she, not Greenlee, could be the biological mother of Ryan's child. Kendall denies the accusations but her words fall on deaf ears. Disgusted with Kendall, Greenlee tells her that she will never forgive Kendall for what she has done and then rushes out of the room. Ryan follows his wife while Jackson turns his wrath on Kendall. He berates her for what she did to Greenlee. David picks up where Jackson left off until Erica intervenes on her daughter's behalf. Turning to Kendall, Erica tries to comfort Kendall but Kendall is too distraught to be comforted. She quickly makes her excuses and flees the room with Zach closely following her. As Dr. Madden begins to leave, Erica stops him and demands answers.
