Kate is a woman who knows what she wants and makes sure that she gets it.
Life did not always treat Kate with kindness. She was beaten by Curtis
Reed, her ex-husband. Kate did what she thought was the best thing and got
away from him. Curtis lied to her and told her that Austin and Billie died.
Kate wanted happiness, even if it was with a married man. She had an
affair with Bill Horton and became pregnant with Lucas.
This is a mother who will do anything for her kids. To survive, Kate
became a call-girl. Later, she learned the truth about Austin and Billie.
She struggled at first to re-connect with Billie but all was forgiven.
Finally, she met Victor, a man who could give her the moon and the stars.
Kate felt wanted and, I think, for the first time, she felt safe with a man
who cared about her. The relationship also meant wealth. However, her
happiness did not last long as Vivian tried everything in her power to get
rid of Kate. She finally did so when she drugged Kate's pilot and the plane
crashed. A fishing boat picked her up and she lived for almost a year on the
boat. We all know how determined this woman can be and that she is a
Kate finally made it back to Salem and reclaimed her life and her man.
Kate and Victor had a son, Phillip. Victor had two strokes and was placed in
a nursing home. This meant that Kate was the lady of the house and took over
Soon Kate became enemies with Sami Brady. Sami blackmailed Kate with her
past. We all know that when Kate gets mad, she gets even and will do
anything in her power to save her family and her own skin. When Lucas shot
Franco, Kate did not hesitate to frame Sami for the murder. This just showed
us, once again, that she will do anything for her children, as she framed
Sami to protect Lucas.
Kate is a woman who will use anyone to get what she wants. She even used
her own grandson to try to push Sami over the edge. Later on, when Victor
recovered, he kicked her out. This meant no more nice clothes, money, and
Kate tried to kill Victor on two occasions: first in Paris and once again
in Salem when she hit him over the head and set the Kiriakis mansion on
fire, unaware that Lucas was in the house. Here we got to see Kate repentant
for what she did.
We were shown how manipulative she can be when she used her own son,
Phillip, to get what she wanted. She played on Phillip’s emotions and knew
how he would react to her working in a diner as a waitress. By manipulating
her son, she got exactly what she wanted.
Kate lied when she applied for a position at Basic Black because she is a
determined woman and will not let anything get her down.
Kate found love again with Roman. I think this was the second time in her
life that she felt loved and wanted and not used. She and Roman finally got
married, but the wedding night turned into tragedy when Roman was killed by
the Salem Stalker. It must have ripped her apart to find her new husband
Kate knows how to use her beauty to get what she wants, but one thing we
can say for her is that when she truly cares about someone, she will do
anything for that person, even if it means hurting the people close to her.
