Ryan carries Kendall into the Pine Cone, she tells him to get out of her way and he responds by telling her the only person in her way is herself. She accuses him of trying to change her and he says that he does not and is simply trying to keep her from ruining her own life. For the millionth time, she asks why he cares. He counters by inquiring if he is merely the guy she is sleeping with. They both agree that they don’t treat each other like that at all. He goes on to say that he understands her and that he is on her side and will always believe in her, despite that fact that she keeps screwing up. Kendall goes on about Erica and Bianca blaming her for Bianca’s accident. Ryan tells her that revenge is not what should matter to her. Kendall explains to Ryan that when she’s not thinking of revenge she feels whole because she has nothing else to believe in. He tells her that he knows that she knows there are better ways to live. She tries to leave and he stops her. He asks her to let him make her feel alive, instead of revenge even though that is what she is used to. He believes in them, he says, and asks her if she can let that be enough. After they make love Kendall tells Ryan that no one has ever been this way with her before. He asks if he’s the first one she has been serious about. She explains to him that she thought Del Henry was the one, but after they got to Florida it turned out that he could not put up with her crap. Ryan says it is a challenge and he has a solution. She tells him a personality transplant will not work and he suggest they run away together. He talks about how there is nothing in Pine Valley but reminders of bad memories and that they remember them without reminders. She tells him she cannot go, she has a court date. He says as soon as that’s done, they’ll leave. They can be their best away from Pine Valley he tells her. She agrees and they decide to leave town.
