- She's pretty. (A shallow reason to like her but hey, I'll include it.)
- She's smart. (Allegedly. I'm still not convinced that she was actually April May. But that's a rant for another time.)
- She's been in the my-parent-is-evil-I-must-change-sides situation. (Although personally, I think that for someone to date Ian, they have to at least somewhat also understand what it's like to experience so much death, and she doesn't seem to have had to deal with that.)
- She's a fellow Cahill.
So here's my thought- ever since she entered the series, we've read a lot about how perfect Ian and Cara are together, and the Carian moments have gotten to the point of basically being shoved in our faces. (*cough* especially MH *cough*) Typically, with other couples, it's never THAT bad. Yes, they have romantic moments. Yes, they flirt. But it's never been so painfully forced.
Maybe, just maybe, it's being pushed on us on purpose. Hoping to gain a bunch of Carian fans, so that when Cara finally switches sides, the fandom loses it. Again, this could just be my desperate hopes. Or maybe I'm on the right track. I really don't know. But I'm definitely not going to trust her. And I'm going to just keep hoping for Amian. ;)
