Season 2 | Episode 6 | Aired May 5, 2015
The episode was called “Stay With Me”, but personally I think it should have been called “Hour of Heartbreak”. Seriously, everyone was miserable!
Taylor, Ofe, Carter, Crash, Max, Grant, Elizabeth, and David! All of them, miserable at one point or another in last week’s episode!
While there was a quite a bit that happened (including Elizabeth going on a date and Grant telling Taylor about his therapy sessions) the main things I want to talk about today are Crash/Carter and Taylor/Ofe.
After discovering that Max was right about Crash’s uncle and the drugs, Carter and Max manage to convince Elizabeth to let Crash stay with them for one night. Now, previous to this I had been kind of iffy about Crash and what his motives were. But then last week I started to like him, thinking, “Alright, maybe he is a good guy now, or at least trying to be”. Then he left. Gone, Never to be seen again? Who knows!
After Crash’s uncle shows up at Carter’s house and threatens them, Crash tells Elizabeth everything about his uncle’s crimes before he leaves in the middle of the night and joins the military. I felt so bad for Carter here. Things finally seemed to be looking up and then things come crashing (no pun intended) down.
I think when Elizabeth worried about Carter and Crash’s relationship and the possibility of Crash leaving her daughter, she probably didn’t think it would be so Carter was safe.
“I’m not going to accept him because he’s going to break your heart. And I don’t want you to get hurt.”
– Elizabeth Wilson
I’m really hoping Crash will come back at some point because I was actually starting to like him. I think it’s probably a safe assumption that we’ll see him again since we see that as the bus Crash is on is pulling away, his uncle is sitting there in a car watching him.
I don’t think Lori’s the biggest threat anymore.
Probably the biggest thing that happened in last week’s episode was between Taylor and Ofe. After Taylor takes some of Ofe’s drugs (which she stole from him) she ends up passing out at Ofe’s house. Ofe is, understandably, quite upset and frustrated by this because he genuinely likes Taylor and she practically admits that she’s just been using him.
“You’re not my boyfriend!” – Taylor
“Clearly not…” – Ofe
I was so mad at Taylor here. I know that she’s dealing with a lot, but Ofe has been nothing but sweet to her. When she told him she’d been feeling sick, Ofe worried that she might be pregnant and his response was: “I’d make a great dad.” I was both awe-ing and laughing. He ends up breaking off their friends with benefits deal, stating that he’s scared she’s going to end up breaking his heart.
His face was so sad! Like come on, someone give Ofe a hug! He’s so nice and so sweet and I just wanted to protect him from getting hurt.
I’m really hoping things will start looking up soon, but it is Finding Carter so I suspect tonight’s episode will consist of sadness and lies.
What did you think of last week’s episode?
