“Finding Carter” Season 1 Episode 8 “Half Baked” airs on Tuesday, Aug. 19, 2014, at 10:00 p.m. on MTV. Carter and Taylor celebrate their birthday together for the first time since Carter was kidnapped. Read on to learn more about Episode 7 “Throw Momma from the Train” recap and a sneak peek of Episode 8 “Half Baked.”
Previously on Episode 6 “The Fugitive” (air date: Aug. 5, 2o14), Carter started a relationship with Crash, the teenage criminal that Liz arrested for the juvenile prison. Taylor, on the other hand, accepted Gabe’s invitation of a date despite her growing attraction to Max.
In “Throw Momma from the Train,” the Wilson twins were surprised about their on-the-spot celebration from their family. Carter had to re-schedule again before she could run away for good. Taylor was also shocked because it is one of her most hateful events every year. Grant, on the other hand, felt neglected due the attention given to Carter and Taylor. He was even scolded by Grandma Jean for not doing his job right. The good thing was Crash arrived at their home to help him with the coats.
It was Jean who sensed that Liz might have an affair behind her husband’s back. Liz was surprised that her mother approved of it if it happens in the future. It seems like Jean doesn’t like David for her daughter since the beginning. She and Liz decided to accompany the girls for shopping at Macy’s.
Liz kicked off the celebration for some speech that got Carter angry. She excused herself to go inside her room. She was seen by Taylor while she was packing her secret stash of clothes. Carter then admitted about her recent meeting with Lori. Taylor tried to convince her not to go. When Carter refused, Taylor threatened that she will inform Liz about it. She also pointed out the negative outcome of having a twin sister like Carter.
Carter didn’t know that she had been celebrating the day when Lori became a “mother” after kidnapping her. She remembered that Lori lied to her about her baby photos. Her mother told her that they got damaged from the flood that got inside their basement.
Carter wanted to find more clues and retrieved several photo albums. When Max arrived, they talked that he’ll try not to influence her on choosing between a life with Lori or with her real family. Max told her that Lori has been stalking near their home. He warned her that he will not be his friend anymore if she chooses to hurt Taylor and their family.
Later, the celebration continued at their house. Liz and the others found out that Carter and Taylor woke the exact same dress they picked separately. Gabe and his father, Kyle arrived to join the party. Kyle, who was also Liz’s lover, felt awkward towards David. Crash eventually got Carter alone. He asked for a baby picture. He said that he will love her despite her complicated past.
Meanwhile, Kyle and David failed to establish a good conversation. Kyle immediately got alarmed when David dropped some hints on his secret affair with his wife. He confronted Liz immediately. Gabe and Grant accidentally heard about the conversation between Kyle and Liz.
Everything went normal again after the successful party. David still kept his work on Carter’s post-kidnapping life as a secret. She went there to give the car keys that Lori gave to her. She confessed that they planned on running away together. She also handed the burner phone she got from Lori.
The episode ended with David sharing the information to Liz. He said that he promised Carter that Liz won’t be part of Lori’s imprisonment. He was also the one who called Lori on the burner phone. She told him that he was a bad liar just like before. It seems that David and Lori had a history together.
And that’s it for “Finding Carter” Season 1 Episode 7 “Throw Momma from the Train” recap.
