In Support Of Kana

Fancy writing a guest blog post for us? All details here! 

On Friday last week, Flaming Nora wrote about why she isn't a fan of the Kana pairing- so I thought about why I am.

It's been 20 months since Rana first graced the cobbles and stole the hearts of both Zeedan and this blogger, but in that time she hasn't really had a big storyline of her own- even her wedding was more about Zeedan dealing with Sharif's betrayal.

However, this storyline represents a chance to explore Rana as a character and for the viewers to learn more about her. We know she doesn't get on with her parents, but why? She used to be a party girl, so why did she settle down so soon? For someone who has been on the show for over a year and a half, there's still a lot we don't know about the street's resident nurse.

Being with Rana could also bring out the best in Kate. Her only serious relationship so far has been with Caz- and it would be no surprise if that had left her with a few issues when it comes to relationships. We've already seen hints that Rana's feelings for Kate are mutual, but she is at least trying to do the right thing given her friendship with Zeedan.

What is frustrating is that, after last week when Bhavna Limbachia knocked it out of the park, when Rana emotionally confessed her true feelings for Kate, there's now no idea when they're next going to be back on screen- and shippers on social media aren't happy. Once November comes around, I hope that Kana will be given some proper screen time to allow the story to really develop.
