“Finding Carter” Season 1 Episode 4 “Now You See Me” aired on Tuesday, July 22, 2014, at 10:00 p.m. on MTV. Read on to learn more about Movie News Guide’s (MNG) recap of Episode 4 “Now You See Me.”
“Finding Carter” Season 1 Episode 4 “Now You See Me” was directed by Rob Hardy and written by Maria Maggenti. Previously on Season 1 Episode 3 “Drive,” Carter Stevens (Kathryn Prescott) continued to see the bad boy named Crash (Caleb Ruminer) against Liz’s (Cynthia Watros) wishes.
In “Now You See Me,” the stars weren’t aligned for Carter. She had found an enemy in Bird (Vanessa Morgan), her newfound friend after living with the Wilsons. She learned that Bird used her as the subject of her new art exhibit. She was given another shot at being “bad” when Bird draw half of her face looking decomposed.
Carter was first convinced by Bird and their other friends that she should make it pass. Unfortunately, the kids from their school started to litter the hallways with Carter’s portrait. Gabe (Jesse Henderson) skipped class to help her clean up a hallway full of her pictures. She immediately confronted Bird about it. She was told that she was jealous that the spotlight wasn’t on her this time.
Concerned students and teachers went to stop Carter and Bird from fighting. They later forgave each other after hours of cleaning everything up. Carter also felt bad about Bird’s life as a kid with parents who usually leave her behind.
On the other hand, good things happened at the Wilsons’ residence. Carter and Taylor (Anna Jacoby-Heron) received a car from David (Alexis Denisof). Everyone didn’t know that the couple cannot afford buying themselves a car because of all their bills. Liz tried to talk with David about it and was told that there’s a check coming for them. Liz took her revenge by starting her affair with Kyle (Eddie Matos), Gabe’s father.
Later, David and Liz had a fight over the mysterious paycheck. It was said that the money for the car didn’t arrive on time. Liz had no choice but to ask money from her mother, Grandma Joan (Meredith Baxter). When they arrived at her home, their grandmother was happy that Carter remembered to call her Grammy. She didn’t know that Taylor told Carter about the name that they used to call her as kids.
Elsewhere, Max (Alex Saxon) tried to go home after his impromptu sleepover at Bird’s house. He was told by his parents that he can leave their family home because he can support himself. At first, he was hurt, but he had to. He previously talked to Lori (Milena Govich), who wanted to return in Carter’s life.
