Who Is Zoa In Welcome To Eden?

For those who enjoy watching shows that are all about suspense and survival, Welcome to Eden is a good choice for you, as this Netflix series promises to be one of the more exciting shows to watch for fans of thrillers. And another reason why Welcome to Eden can be a good experience for audiences out there is the colorful cast of characters that all have their own individual personalities and histories.

Zoa is one of the most important characters in the series, considering that a good part of Welcome to Eden revolves around her story.

Before she went to the island of the Eden Foundation, Zoa was a biology student in her second year. She lived in Barcelona with your younger sister and father. But she was almost always left to take care of her sister because her father was always away for work. Meanwhile, her mother was a heroin addict that forced the family to break apart due to the fact that she was always in and out of rehab and was constantly borrowing money from her.

As a teenager, Zoa was always running away from home because of the problems she faced at home. In most cases, she would stay with her best friend Judith, who was welcome enough to allow her to live with her for as long as possible.

During the beginning of the series, Zoa received a random text from Astrid. The message asked her if she was happy, and it also invited her to an exclusive party that was run by Eden on a secluded island. The purpose of the party was to supposedly ask the younger partygoers, socialites, and social media personalities to promote their energy drink called Blue Eden. However, despite signing a contract that forbade her from bringing friends along, Zoa broke the rule and brought Judith with her.

At the party, Zoa was one of the people who drank Blue Eden, and this drink caused her to become hazy to the point that she almost fell off a cliff before Nico saved her. The next morning, she, Aldo, Ibón, África, and Charly woke up on an empty beach while all of the other partygoers were already gone. They followed a drone that led them to an area where Astrid and all of the other people of the Eden Foundation were waiting for them.

From there, Zoa and the others were given a tour of the Eden Foundation as she once again met Nico, who she became close with during her stay there. It was also Nico who urged her to stay with them on the island while telling her that her sister, Gaby, would be okay even when she was not around.

When Zoa told the people of the Eden Foundation her life story, Astrid convinced her that her mother didn’t love her, as she was asked to say “my mother hates me” repeatedly. That was all part of the plan that would’ve kept Zoa on the island as the people of the Eden Foundation were convincing her that she no longer had any reason to return to her family on the mainland.

While Zoa was seemingly becoming more comfortable on the island, especially after finding love in Nico, she ended up discovering Judith’s dead body in an underground cave. This led her to develop some sort of resentment towards Astrid, who later told her that it was her fault that Judith was dead because she was the reason why her best friend was on the island at all.

As Astrid was seemingly about to kill Zoa after she had told her that she was the reason why Judith died, the young lady told Astrid that she would dedicate her entire life to the Eden Foundation. Of course, that was a lie that she needed to tell so that she could survive and find a way off the island.
