Chasing Life fans — and characters — will be afforded a chance at a bit more closure, in the wake of the tragic twist uncorked in this week’s episode of the ABC Family drama.
In Monday night’s episode, “As Long as We Both Shall Live,” newlywed April (played by Italia Ricci) discovered that husband Leo (Scott Michael Foster) had died in his sleep, a devastating loss that, while not entirely surprising, caught the audience at large off guard, breaking many a heart.
But as hinted by the next episode’s title, “The Ghost in You,” we have not yet seen the last episode that Foster filmed, showrunner Patrick Sean Smith affirmed via Twitter:
Foster himself meanwhile thanked fans, hours after his on-screen passing, while celebrating the “rare” experience that was Chasing Life. (The actor now stars on the new Sunday-night ABC drama Blood & Oil.)
Chasing Life fans, how do you think Leo will “resurface”? As a vision to April? In a recreated flashback, or will Leo leave behind a video that will wreck April all over again?
