Finding Carter

Will she stay or will she go? Tuesday’s Finding Carter (MTV, 10/9c) features the titular character at her most challenging crossroads yet, and Kathryn Prescott tells TVLine that “there’s a big change in Carter” by the end of the hour. But is change always a good thing?

CRASH & BURN | Now that Carter has made her feelings for Crash known, the couple is going full steam ahead. But is that a good thing? “He’s going to influence her negatively, but not in a typical way,” Prescott explains. “He’s always telling her to stop; he doesn’t want to get her involved in his life. I feel like Carter is so empathetic towards him because he’s the only person in her life who’s experienced that same level of trauma.”

LIFE-CHANGING CROUTONS | Though he wasn’t originally envisioned as a recurring character, Max’s position on Finding Carter became solidified when the powers-that-be observed him in the kitchen with Taylor. “The crouton scene was a turning point when MTV started thinking about where Max could really fit into the show and for how long,” Saxon explains. “Max was a one-episode guest-star, and then it just kind of kept going. That crouton scene was fun; we didn’t know it at the time, but they saw it and they liked it.”

carter-and-loriDECISIONS, DECISIONS | I don’t think Lori’s going to like what Prescott has to say about Carter’s growth this week. “There’s a big change in Carter in Episode 7; she’s kind of put down roots in this family, not meaning to,” Prescott begins. “And she’s also started to become attached to them. Episode 7 is interesting because you especially see how strongly connected Carter and Taylor are as twins.”

MAMA DRAMA | Max seems like the perfect liaison between Lori and Carter — is there a simpler, sweeter human on television right now? — but it sounds like that’s all about to change. “Max and Lori had a connection, just as Max has a good relationship with Elizabeth,” Saxon explains. “But his patience and his good nature are being tested; Lori’s becoming more and more inappropriate in her interactions, and Max doesn’t know what to do with that.”
