Season 2 | Episode 7 | Aired May 12, 2015
In last night’s episode of Finding Carter we saw many things finally come to a head.
Taylor’s downward spiral finally seemed to hit the ground (we’ll see for sure next week). She took more “Study Buddies” several times throughout this episode which resulted in her hitting another car (Carter took the blame and I raged), insulting Bird, almost being late to hand in a college application, and yelling at several members of the study body.
I’m hoping this breakdown finally means things will start looking up for Taylor now. She deserves to start being happy again, but I have a feeling this isn’t officially the end. After all, there’s still Max and Ofe and Lori and her parents and pretty much everything going against her right now.
It was a very strange episode, knowing that Carter is probably the most sane and relaxed one in their family right now.
We also saw that Grant finally seemed to have had enough. First he stuck Kyle’s phone in the dishwasher, then he skipped school to spend the day at the arcade, and finally he admitted to his parents that he no longer wants to live at home.
I felt so bad for Grant last night. I’ve said it before, but he really does just kind of get shoved to the back, doesn’t he? I’m not really surprised by his admission that he wants to live with his grandparents. This whole, ‘mom’s night/dad’s night’ thing Elizabeth and David are trying to do just isn’t working, especially not when they’re spending their nights off with their new boyfriends/girlfriends.
I’m wondering how long Grant will live at his grandparents house though. Will it only be for a couple episodes? The rest of the season? Will this finally be the thing that kicks David and Elizabeth into gear and makes them realize they need to come up with a new way to deal with things? I hope so.
The other big thing that happened last night was Abby getting arrested (by Kyle) after her fiancé (!) reported her to the police for sleeping with a student.
I think we all knew that this was coming. There was no way Gabe and Abby were going to get away with this relationship, but I definitely wasn’t expecting them to get caught this quickly! Or for it to be Gabe’s dad who arrested her! Or for Abby to have a fiancé! It was literally just one thing right after the other. This storyline is definitely not over yet, Gabe’s dad is definitely going to find out it was his son she was sleeping with.
Last night was intense. Next week will probably be even more so. I’m pretty certain next Tuesday is the mid-season finale (so soon?!) and things are going to be crazy.
What did you think of last night’s episode?
