Best Use Of A Clich: Zach and Kendall Marry First, Fall In Love Later, AMC

The Slaters are hardly the first soap couple to marry for reasons other than love, only to find themselves kneedeep in it anyway - hence this category. But what made Zach and Kendall's reverse courtship so alluring - aside from the powder-keg chemistry between Alicia Minshew (Kendall) and Thorsten Kaye (Zach) that got the plot rolling to begin with - is that we didn't expect it: We thought the "Zendall" union was a bump in the Kendall/Ethan road, not its own destination. 

This enabled Zach and Kendall's growing affection to sneak up and surprise us as much as it did them. When they ended up in love, it felt like a happy accident, not some writer's "You Will Love This Couple" dictate - and on daytime, alas, that's not something you see every day.
