Wrecking Ball

Previously on Finding Carter You were going through something that was - really difficult.
- No.
Don't make excuses for me.
You love Taylor, Max.
I know she loves you, too, and I put myself first again.
I miss you every day and what we have - is pretty incredible.
- Yeah, it is.
I think we're gonna work things out.
That's really great.
I can't be with her until she knows the truth.
I really hope you're right.
What is Carter's necklace doing in here? Max? Hey.
- Where'd you find that? - It was in the back of Max's truck.
What was it doing there? Taylor, we have to tell you something.
What? What's wrong? When we went to go visit Lori Max and I slept together.
You're kidding, right? Please tell me you're kidding.
Taylor, wait.
Taylor, stop running.
- Let us explain.
- Look, we made a mistake.
- A mistake?! - Taylor, it was all my fault.
- I promise, it wasn't him.
- No, no, no, it was both of our faults, and if we could take it back, we would.
Well, you can't! Yeah, we know that, Taylor.
- Tay, I'm so sorry.
- I'm sorry, too.
Oh no.
I'm sorry you guys feel so bad.
But I can assure you that I feel much worse.
- This feels good.
- Yeah.
I missed you.
Ah, I remember that.
So, um, I guess I'm gonna have to give you your sock drawer back.
- Right? - Yes.
How is this gonna work? When do we tell the kids? Well, there's a couple of grownups we should probably talk to first.
Yes, of course.
Is it gonna be a problem with Hillary? You guys have to teach together.
You and Kyle have to work together.
SAT scores? You had it on your calendar, too? - Of course I did.
- Mm-hmm.
But did you remember to make the dinner reservations? Oh Of course I did.
I don't understand how you could let this happen.
It's not something that we planned.
It was just a really bad moment.
And you just thought, we're broken up So it's okay? It's fine, we can do this? No, that's not what happened at all.
And what about you? Did you think this was okay? - You're my sister.
- We should have stepped back.
- We should have stopped.
- You think? Okay, look, Taylor, I'm not gonna sit here and try and explain this away, but No, I can explain.
Other people's feelings do not register with you.
Of course your feelings matter to me, Taylor.
Please tell me what I can do to fix this, please? There's nothing either of you can do.
But if I think of something, I'll be sure to let you know.
Welcome back, how was the trip? How was the cabin? - Um, it was it was good, it was good.
- Uh-huh.
Are you okay? What's wrong with this picture? Just just tired.
Your father and I thought a getaway would help.
- Help what? - Well, just how hard it was when Carter went to see Lori.
Yeah, I heard.
But anyway, let's not talk about her.
Do you guys remember what today is? The SAT scores.
- Oh, now? - Yes, come on! I'm gonna let you guys get to that.
Max, stay.
Can you convince him to stay? Yeah.
Yeah, stay.
Okay, come on.
- 2,300?! - Tay! Congratulations, Tay.
Taylor, that is amazing.
It's okay.
Honey, the best score you can get is 2,400.
This is great.
Oh, Carter, let's look.
Hey, nothing about you is average.
Sweetie, under the circumstances, - that is incredible.
- Yes.
- And if you wanna retake it, you can.
- Yeah, maybe.
Meanwhile, we are going to celebrate, as a family, at the Italian Oven.
No, no, no, no, no, no, I can't, I can't.
Wait a minute, we've been planning this - for weeks, we told you.
- Yeah, come on.
The pressure is finally off you guys.
Family dinner.
And, Max, we would love for you to join us.
Yeah, thank you.
I still have so many applications to do for internships and the sooner I figure out what I'm doing this summer, the happier I'll be.
Taylor, you guys got through the test, we are going to celebrate.
Uh okay.
Yeah, dinner.
Taylor, I know nothing I could say right now is gonna make this better.
I don't want you to have to put on a happy face for dinner.
I'm just gonna tell them I'm not feeling well.
It's fine.
Taylor, please let me explain what happened.
Carter, the last thing I want to hear is what happened between you and the first and only person I've ever loved.
Yeah, I understand.
I'll get it.
- Surprise.
- Crash.
Um I'm so happy to see you.
Look who's here.
There he is.
You made it.
Wait, you knew he was coming? - We invited him.
- What? Detective Wilson.
Come here.
So what's next, a run for Congress? Uh, I don't think they'll let me run with my record.
Oh, sure they will.
I think it's a requirement.
Well, we're glad that you're here.
- You done with basic? - Yeah.
Uh, next I'll find out where I'm posted and then I'll get to pick a specialty.
Oh, what are you interested in? Well, actually, there's a program at Fort Bragg where they teach you do to Special Forces stuff.
Crisis management, combat driving and tactical operations.
Oh, yeah, I can totally see you doing that.
Well, you gotta love irony.
Taylor got a perfect score on her SATs.
Uh, almost perfect.
Carter likes to exaggerate.
It's one of her many character flaws.
Congratulations, Taylor.
Thank you, Crash.
You too.
Uh, Taylor, Crash is gonna come to dinner with us.
- Is that okay? - Why not? The more the merrier.
What's up with her? Um, she's mad at me.
Wanna talk about it? Yeah.
Yeah, I really do.
But you know what? Let's, um let's have dinner first.
- Sounds good.
- Hey, where are you staying? Do you need to stay here? No, I got a hotel room in town.
Crash, you could have stayed here.
I didn't want to presume anything.
Well, I have to get ready.
Okay, how about I come back in an hour and pick you up? We'll ride to dinner together like we're on a date.
That sounds good.
Detective Wilson? Elizabeth.
Um, I'm just on my way out.
Aren't you coming to dinner with us? Yeah, of course, I just wanted to I just wanted to ask you something.
Did the cops ever nab my uncle? No, did he try to contact you? No, no, he doesn't know I enlisted, - so he wouldn't have any way of finding me.
- Good.
Um, no.
Word is that he left the state and he's setting up shop in North Carolina, but don't worry.
We're gonna get him.
Okay, thanks.
Great, I'll be back in a little bit - to pick up Carter.
- Yeah, see you later.
- See you, Mr.
- See ya.
Hey, ooh, I'm glad I caught you.
Um, I'm gonna just have to meet you at the restaurant, if that's okay.
- Why? Well, when we planned the dinner, I invited Gabe and Kyle and I need to tell him what's going on.
Can't you call him? Might be easier.
I just think that it's best if I just do it face to face.
Wish me luck.
Good luck.
Are you gonna tell Crash? Yeah, of course I'm gonna tell him.
Just need to find the right time.
Good luck with that.
- Hey.
- Hi.
What are you doing here? Never mind, I don't care.
Come in, come in.
What can I get for you? A glass of wine? Uh, no, nothing.
Thank you.
I, um, I can't stay.
What do you mean? I have to get to dinner.
I thought we were going together.
Kyle, I have to change our plans.
Really? In person.
I guess I should be grateful.
- Can I please we need to talk.
- Really? That's the line you're gonna use? - "We need to talk"? - I promised you too much.
I shouldn't have done that.
You're not leaving him.
I can see that I'm hurting you and I am so sorry.
I had no idea that this was gonna - turn out the way it did.
- Come on, Liz.
You might be sorry for hurting me, but you're not sorry that this is where it's ending up.
I don't want to leave him.
And I don't want to leave my children.
But you need to hear this.
I loved you and I loved what we had together.
It saved me.
You helped me get through some of the worst times of my life and I'll never forget that.
I will care about you forever because of it.
I guess deep down I I always knew that this is how things would go.
But I loved you so much, and I just ignored it.
You know that this is the right thing.
If it's okay with you, I really don't feel like making you feel better about things right now.
You should go.
I'm sorry.
Just go.
Never been so thirsty in my life.
Wish you'd been there, though.
It was crazy.
Crash? I really missed you.
Couldn't have been more than I missed you.
I'm sorry I didn't answer your letters.
Oh, no, it's okay.
I know they have rules.
Yeah, that was part of it, but I felt really bad about what my uncle put everyone through.
Crash, that wasn't your fault.
But I appreciate you wanting to take responsibility for it.
It's about time, right? Should have done it a long time ago.
I guess we'd better go inside.
So what'd you do, like combat scenarios and stuff? Yeah, some.
And mostly, they just yell at you.
"Full Metal Jacket," right? - You have not seen that movie.
- Yeah, I have.
Hey, sorry I'm late.
- Hey.
- Hey.
- Everything go okay? - Yeah, barely okay.
One down, one to go.
Yeah, Hillary.
- Hey, Max.
- Hey.
Man, when did you get back? I just finished basic.
- I'm in town for a couple of days, had to see Carter.
- Right on.
- Dude, I like this.
- Thanks.
- Yeah, it's weird.
- It's a good look.
- Thanks.
- Max, sit.
Hey, guys.
Can you pass the bread? Yeah.
Chow Fun.
Oh, cool, Chinese.
I thought we were going out with the Wilsons.
Yeah, I thought so, too.
So Elizabeth won't be moving in with us.
She decided to stay with David.
That sucks, I'm sorry.
She made you nothing but miserable.
Yeah, well I let it happen.
I should have shut things down a long time ago.
- Let me see your phone.
- For what? - No, no - Come on, come on.
- Tinder profile.
- No, no, no, no way.
- Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
- Give it.
Come on, are you kidding me? Handsome widowed cop? You're gonna have a ping before the dumplings cool.
I am handsome.
But no thanks.
How am I gonna go off to college - and not worry about you? - Hey, slow down.
You still have your senior year, okay? Besides, it's my job to worry, not yours.
Eat your Chow Fun.
If you say so.
What? You're a good kid.
I'm proud of you.
I'm proud of you, too.
And you know what? I think we do all right on our own.
Last thing we need is another cop around here.
You're right.
That's the last thing we need.
Hey, all right, you know what? Let me see what you were doing.
- How many swipes did I get? - How tall do you want to be? Come on, six-five, at least.
- Six-five? - Yeah.
Hung? Okay, so you're always hungry, you're always tired and you're basically at the mercy of everyone around you.
It sounds like raising children.
You know what, almost everyone there comes from some kind of troubled background.
You realize that bad stuff happens to everyone, but they train you to get your crap together and stop whining and grow up.
That's pretty amazing, knowing that you can overcome it.
Well, here's to you, Crash.
You've come a long way, and I think I speak for everyone when I say - we are proud of you.
- Cheers.
I'd like to make a toast, too.
To Taylor.
This year has been one of change, and at times, a lot of difficulty, but through all that, you've persevered and earned straight "A"s and now you've got this SAT score and I think that is something to be admired and honored.
I'm pleased but not surprised.
I love you, Taylor.
I can't do this.
- Honey.
- No, Mom, it's fine.
I got it.
Would you like to fill me in on what's going on? Oh, it's nothing.
Taylor Taylor, I'm sorry.
I didn't mean to freak you out with the toast.
- Tell me how it happened.
- What? Who kissed who first, you or Carter? - No, Taylor, we're not going there.
- Max, please.
Anything would be better than what's in my head right now.
I am sorry that that's what's stuck in your head.
If I could make it stop, I would, you know that.
How'd her necklace come off? I'm not talking to you about this.
I'm not gonna hurt you anymore than I already have.
This is the only way that I will move past this.
I need to know.
Taylor, my best friend was really hurting and she and I did something that we used to do whenever life got messed up, okay? It's a leftover from a long time ago when everything was different for the both of us.
But you gotta believe me, hurting you is the last thing that I ever wanted to do.
Well, you did.
You could try to remember how much I love you.
Everything we had.
Things are messed up right now, I'll give you that, but that is not all there is.
It's not everything about us, and you know it.
I need a minute.
I'll see you back at the table.
Crash? Yeah? I think there's something you should know.
Is your napkin on your lap? Doesn't need to be.
No, it's all crumpled up, that's why.
No, you put it on your lap.
- Are you okay? - Yeah.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'm fine.
You okay? Yeah, sure.
Hey, Crash, here comes the best part dessert.
No, man, I don't think I can eat another bite.
Come on, it's tiramisu.
It's made with brandy and it's the only time I can have liquor and it's legal.
How'd it go with Hillary? I called and left a message saying, "We need to talk.
" And 30 seconds later, she texted back saying, "Are we breaking up?" - What'd you do? - I didn't know what to do.
I texted back, "Call me," and she texted back, "O-M-G, G-T-H.
" Go to hell.
I know.
I wouldn't say it's so much of an age difference is the big problem, it's more like an entire cultural revolution.
How did you even know what it was? - Looked it up.
- Right.
On the, um Interweb? Exactly.
- I like this.
- Yeah, you like what? Us, brushing our teeth.
Yeah, like an old married couple.
Like us.
The good us.
The us I've missed.
What? I don't know.
I'm nervous.
You're beautiful.
Can we please talk about this? Yeah, sure, why don't you start? What did Taylor tell you? She told me what I assume you weren't going to tell me.
That you and Max hooked up.
Okay, Crash, I was going to tell you, that's why I wanted to speak to you after dinner.
Did she tell you Lori tried to kill herself? No.
About a week ago, her doctor called me and asked me to come visit her in the hospital, which I did, and Max came with me.
And that's when it happened? She told me that she never wanted to see me again and that my entire childhood had been a mistake and I just lost it.
I don't even know why I didn't think I cared anymore.
But I wasn't thinking straight.
I couldn't talk.
I just I don't know, he was just there.
And I know that's not an excuse in any way.
But I promise you it didn't mean anything.
Crash, I was out of my mind.
Please believe me.
I do.
Would you tell your parents thank you for dinner again, for me? Crash, I don't want to end our first night together like this.
Please tell me we can work this out.
I just need a little time to think, okay? We'll talk tomorrow.
- You promise? - I promise.
I was gonna tell him, Taylor.
Too late.
Did it make you feel any better? A little, yeah.
Ah How was dinner? It's not the best Italian in town, but I guess it's good when you're eating family style.
How long have you been following me? Oh, you knew I was gonna find you.
Why'd you even bother running? What else was I supposed to do, man? Talk to me, not talk to your girlfriend's cop mom.
Look, I'm not interested in you or anything you're doing.
My mouth is shut.
All I care about is getting back to base.
As far as I'm concerned, you don't exist.
Too bad I can't say the same thing for you.
You're my sister's kid, so I'm not gonna kill you, but I can't send you back to the army.
Going AWOL, kid.
If they catch me, I'll go to jail.
If they catch us, we'll go to jail.
Family style.
- I need to see Carter.
- No, no way.
You're not seeing her ever again.
- Crash? - Hey.
- Are you still mad at me? - Look, Carter, I gotta take off.
- I wanted you to know.
- What? - Why? - I borrowed my buddy's car - and I got to get it back to base.
- But you said we had three days.
You promised we could talk.
Well, things have changed.
Crash, I told you it didn't mean anything.
Look, I gotta go I'm sorry.
Okay, well, then let me come back to base with you.
I'll get a bus home or something.
I'll figure it out, I just wanna Don't take it personally, just don't want her looking for you.
You got your little phone call.
We gotta get on the road.
Come on.
Don't push me, man.
Hey, you've reached Crash, leave a message.
What's the hurry? Crash is leaving, maybe for good.
- Did did Carter just leave? - Yeah.
- When is she coming home? - No idea.
Sweetheart, what's going on with you two? I saw it last night, I'm seeing it right now.
Nothing, we're fine.
- Thanks.
- What's up with you guys? We wanted to talk to all of you at the same time.
Well, Carter's gone and Grant's at Charlie's, so what? - Why are you smiling like that? - All right.
Well, we're gonna tell you.
Uh, we're getting back together.
What? Wait no divorce, no separation? No, honey, the whole thing's off.
Well, what about Kyle and Hillary? - No, that's over.
- Done.
Listen, we realize that we've put you through a lot these past couple of months and we are so sorry.
No parent wants to work out their marital stuff in front of their kids.
Your father and I, we realized how much we have and how much we've been through.
- It's a lot.
- It is.
And we don't want to throw it away.
Hi, excuse me, I'm, uh I'm looking for a friend of mine.
He's a tall, blonde army guy.
- Checked in yesterday.
- Yeah, yeah, the soldier.
Yeah, do you know what room number he's in? I he's gone.
- But his car's still outside.
- He left with two men.
- What, army guys? - Army? I mean, I don't think so.
- I mean, I don't know.
- What did they look like, the guys? Well, one was big, tattoos on his neck.
The other was smaller, good looking, short blonde hair.
They had an argument and they left.
Uh, thanks for coming by.
Do you want a drink or something? No, no, no, no, I'm good, thanks.
So my parents aren't breaking up.
- That's incredible.
- Yeah.
They lied and cheated.
Let each other down over and over again.
I don't get it.
How can they move on after everything that they've done? They love each other.
Max, I did something really mean that I feel really, really horrible about.
What? I told Crash what happened.
Before Carter could.
How did he take that? Not very well, I think.
Carter went to talk to him.
I hope that they can work it out.
Me too.
Because I feel worse now than I did before.
No, people mess up.
You were hurt and you lashed out.
That happens.
I'm learning how to forgive.
But - it's hard.
- I know.
Giving up on people doesn't change anything.
It doesn't make them better people.
So don't give up on me, okay? Mom, I can't find Crash.
I don't know, I think something happened.
I think Shay had something to do with it.
Oh, hey, Mom.
We're gonna find him.
Okay, I, um There is a security camera in the parking lot.
I got the manager to set things up so you can watch it in there and I told him not to touch anything in the room in the meantime.
You might have been disappointed with your SAT scores, but your cop skills, not bad.
Mom? Do you think you're gonna be able to find him.
We're gonna try.
Noel? - Can you bring her home, please? - What? No, I'm not gonna leave.
- You have to.
- Mom.
As soon as I find him, I will bring him home.
Listen, you've got to let me do my work.
I think we got something.
Your mom just called.
You want to sit and wait with us? Uh, yeah.
- I'm going crazy.
- I know, it's hard.
The love of my life is out there, too, but all we can do is wait and trust.
"The love of your life"? You missed it, they're back together.
Really? It'll be a new beginning for us.
All of us.
Will it? Okay, okay, hold on, hold on.
- Can you rewind it, please? - Yeah.
Yes okay.
That's them walking out, but I can't see the car.
Well, there's there's another camera on the other side.
- Yeah, will you go to it, please? - There, there.
That's that's what the the car they drove up in, I think.
- I'll call it in.
- Just rewind it a little bit further.
You're gonna have to give me a copy of this.
I need a trace, Victor, Bravo, Frank, 4-1-4-0, Indy.
We got it.
- Reported stolen three nights ago.
- Great.
- Thank you for your help.
- Yeah.
All units, I need an APB.
for a red Mazda, Maryland plates, Victor, Bravo, Frank, 41-40.
We're looking for three white males, one early 20s, two early 30s.
Assume that they're armed and dangerous.
Yes, what? Yes, to the new beginning thing.
- I'm really sorry.
- What for? Well, if I hadn't have told Crash about you and Max, maybe he wouldn't have gone to the motel.
No, Taylor, don't be ridiculous.
They were following him, they would have found him anyway.
Okay, well, I'm still sorry.
I thought it would somehow even the score, but it didn't.
Look, Taylor, you have every right to be angry.
It's just human instinct to lash out when someone hurts you.
I've done it tons of times.
It's also human to seek comfort when you're in trouble.
People can hurt each other, but they can still love each other.
Think about Mom and Dad.
To new beginnings.
To new beginnings.
How are you? I'm fine.
I requested a transfer this morning.
- Where? - I don't know yet.
Listen, Kyle, I know that you're angry with me, but I am hoping one day - that we'll be able to be friends.
- We're not gonna be friends, Liz.
I told you from the beginning, - I didn't know where my head was.
- Oh, come on.
Let's just be honest here you used that as an excuse.
You were scared and you didn't wanna face being alone, so you leaned on me, and that's what happened, and honestly, it's not my job to make you feel better about it anymore.
I can't be your friend, Liz.
I'm still in love with you.
I always will be.
Detective Wilson.
Okay, I got it.
We're on our way.
A dealer downtown just ran Shay's plate.
He's trying to switch out the stolen car.
Three guys, no visible weapons, - they're keeping Crash close.
- All units, we're gonna need backup.
You go wide, I go tight against the fence.
- Let's make sure Crash is okay.
- Copy that.
Silver caddy's us.
- Freeze! - Police! - Freeze! - Let me see your hands! - Freeze! - Let me see your hands up! Get down on the ground! - Okay, stay cool, we're good.
- Get down on the ground now! - We have nothing on us! - Now! Crash, over there! Get down now! I've got him! Hold it! Shots fired, shots fired, send me some units.
Drop your weapon! Drop your weapon! Hold it! Drop your weapon! Crash, step away! Step aside! Step back! Sorry, Detective.
No! Kyle! - You okay, partner? - It's gone off.
- What? - I think his gun went off.
It's all right, you're gonna be okay.
Officer down, officer down, all units respond.
Crash! It's okay, let's get this off.
Crash! I have a medical kit in my car get it now! - Let's get this off.
- Is it bad, is it bad? Let's get this off, let's get this off.
I need medical now! You're gonna be fine.
We're gonna stop the bleeding, you'll be fine.
Ambulance is on the way, okay.
Apply pressure get in here.
- Celox and QuikClot in here.
- Yeah.
- Give me some gauze.
- Can you move your legs at all? All right, okay, okay, okay, okay, okay, okay, okay.
It's okay, its okay.
- Stay with me.
- All right, the ambulance is almost here.
Can you talk 'til they get here? - My leg, my leg - It's okay, you're in shock.
You're in shock right now, don't worry about it.
Keep talking now, keep talking to me, come on! Get in here! I have one here, one in back.
- Cuff him! - Ambulance is here, I'm gonna flag them down.
Hey, you're gonna be just fine.
You're gonna be fine.
If this is your way of getting my attention, you got it, partner.
Just so you stay with me.
Don't leave me, okay, partner? I need some help! I need some help! Look at me, look at me, look at me.
Okay, hang on.
- They got Shay.
- Oh, thank God.
And Crash is on his way here.
Oh my God.
How's Mom? Mom's fine.
Mom? Hi.
Are you okay? Okay, good.
I love you.
I love you.
Okay, here's Carter.
Mom? How's Crash? Okay.
Thank you.
My mom says if it wasn't for you, Kyle wouldn't have even made it to surgery.
I was just doing what they taught me.
Are you okay? I'm fine.
Crash, I'm sorry for what happened between me and Max.
You already said that.
I believe you.
The base is only three hours away from here.
I was thinking you could drive down on weekends.
- What? - Or I could come here.
And we can Skype, FaceTime, text, Instagram, Snapchat.
What if you get stationed on the other side of the world? I'll deal with that when it happens.
I love you, Carter.
I love you, too.
Can't be easy being married to a cop.
Every time she goes to work, I spend the whole day waiting for her to come back through that door.
Mom? Hey.
Liz what? You should get to the hospital.
Gabe's gonna need you.
Why? Kyle's dead.
