Previously on Episode 4 “Now You See Me” (air date: July 22, 2014), Carter Stevens (Kathryn Prescott) continued to rebel against Liz (Cythnia Waltros), who wanted to put Lori (Milena Govich) behind bars for kidnapping her daughter.
In “The Heat,” Max (Alex Saxon) accidentally told Carter about his chance encounter with Lori. He told Lori that she needed to stay away from her new family. She asked Max’s help, but he refused. Later, Carter went to Crash (Caleb Ruminer). She tapped him to find Lori with the use of her false aliases.
Moreover, Carter was not happy with the developments of the kidnapping case against her known mother. She had thought of asking Liv to let her learn on how the police system work. After hearing the news, Liv was quite happy about their upcoming bonding moment as mother and daughter. Unfortunately, their bond was short-lived when Carter brought up Lori as their topic. Carter got angry over the fact that Liz can be compassionate towards the murderer, but not in Lori’s case.
The episode also shed light on the aftermath of the reignited affair between her and Kyle (Eddie Matos). It was after she and David (Alexis Denisof) had a disagreement about their dwindling funds. When Liz went to sleep, David saw Kyle’s number on her phone. He deduced that his wife might have been having an illicit affair. David went ballistic and left to find his publisher. The man advised him to keep the paycheck for himself until the divorce becomes final.
At the house, Carter, Max and Taylor decided to attend Bird’s (Vanessa Morgan) party. Everyone in attendance was already smoking weed when they arrived. They played “7 Minutes of Heaven.” Taylor did not know that Carter rigged the game. An innocent Taylor, who had never been kissed, got to do it with Ofe (Jesse Carere), Gabe (Jesse Henderson) and Max.
