there had to be a way to cover up lori and david’s affair somehow,right? so while they had their affair she would pretend to stalk them and take pictures to make elizabeth think she was just a stalker. even though if elizabeth knew she hada stalker she would have gone a wall so my answer makes no sense.


Megan September 24, 2014 at 11:01 am

I am happy to see that Finding Carter has been renewed for Season 2. The show has an interesting story line. When it first started I thought that I would give it a couple of issues to see if I liked it and I was hooked! I find it an enjoyable hour of TV watching at the end of the day!!
