Finding Carter Spoilers: Show’s Producer Discusses Season Finale Cliffhanger, Plan Was Always To Have Lori Abduct Carter Again

The Finding Carter season finale shocked many last night, but the show’s producer said that the decision for Lori to abduct Carter again was always in the script.

“The idea was always that Lori abducts Carter again, this time against her will,” Terri Minsky told TVLine. “When MTV called me and said, “We’re going to pick up the first season, but you need to have a great cliffhanger,” I was like, “I know what it is!” We were always headed for that abduction, but the question was how. When we were first planning the arc of the season, it was going to be a Christmas episode and Lori was going to selling Christmas trees — it was crazy. In the finale, we really felt like we had to answer some questions and have her interact with Carter for more than the usual abrupt, two sentences.”
