Exploring the art of storytelling.
Every season 2 episode of “Finding Carter” has a song name as its title: “Love the Way You Lie,” “Shut Up and Drive,” and now, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” And they don’t always fit the episode. I don’t know how I feel about the titles. There doesn’t seem to be enough reasoning behind them.
My favorite line in “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” was when Max responded, “Too soon,” after Crash commented on Max calling him a lifesaver. I’m glad that Max is still able to draw the line and hasn’t completely forgotten what happened.
My favorite scene in “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” was when Carter spoke to Elizabeth about the separation. Elizabeth was in her room trying to pick out her clothes for the anniversary dinner. She was emotional. Carter let her know that she was there for support. It was heartwarming, and showed Elizabeth’s vulnerable side. Both Kathryn Prescott (Carter) and Cynthia Watros (Elizabeth) performed beautifully in this scene.
Max is that one friend who is part of the family. As we found out in “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” even the Wilson’s grandmother likes him. I can totally relate to this. I have both been that friend and had friends like that.
I had difficulty understanding why Taylor is so angry. She said that it had to do with Max forgiving Crash, but I don’t understand why she would break up with him over that. He was the victim. I can believe that she would be upset, but I think she’s taking it too far. I will say, I was able to sympathize with Taylor over her frustrations with Carter butting in on her relationship.
