The summer finale of “Finding Carter” Tuesday night was intense, especially since you knew almost from the very beginning of the episode how it was going to end: With Carter in a courtroom.
Did Lori plan everything, including her time in prison, in order to try to get Carter back? It’s an elaborate plan, but she did come up with a way to emotionally manipulate yet again. What we still don’t understand here is that Carter is almost legal age, and will be able to make her own decisions then. What’s the point of going through all of this for something that may not even be close to permanent? Maybe Lori gets a little more time with her, and that is really it.
The moment that Carter was pressed about her time with Lori in the courtroom, we knew that she could have a little bit of trouble. How terrible was this lawyer representing her? This guy may be even more emotionally manipulative than Lori! Just as we were confused about why Lori thought she was going to change something now, we also found it somewhat bizarre that a kidnapper should really get a child back, even if there are biological ties.
However, all of our confusion and doubts about Lori’s case were clouded further by the huge shocker at the end of the episode: Benjamin Wallace. As it turns out, there was another challenge of Lori and David out there, one that no one knew about until now. His presence could change things, depending on how those goes and the extent of his history with the rest of the characters. This provided to be a STUNNING end to the episode. Episode Grade: B+.
