‘Finding Carter’ Boss Teases Series ‘Ships and Ben Drama

Finding Carter returns tonight and brings a whole new chapter of drama with it now that Lori (Milena Govich) is free and the bombshell of Carter (Kathryn Prescott) and Taylor’s (Anna Jacoby-Heron) new brother Ben (Ben Winchell) has been dropped.

The new season of the MTV series could end up being the most drama-filled yet, with Carter officially beginning her life as a high school drop out, the entire Wilson family dealing with the revelation that there is another family member they didn’t know about or count on, and of course, the ever-present matters of the heart that everyone will have to deal with.

See what executive producer Emily Whitesell told The Hollywood Reporter about what they can expect from Finding Carter when it returns tonight.

On how new brother Ben will affect the family

“They will all have a different point of view. As you’ll see in the first episode, Carter is very interested in the fact that she has this brother and she’ll be focused on bringing him into the family. But what we’ll find in Ben is that he’s very similar to Carter when she first was introduced to the Wilsons, and he may not be as interested in them as they are in him. He’s lived a very traumatic life, and he’s volatile and independent. And watching David as he finds out he has another son, that will be interesting to see how he deals with it and Elizabeth will have very complicated feelings about the whole situation. And then Taylor and Grant will have strong feelings about how their family is constantly changing.”

On what’s ahead for Crash and Carter’s relationship

“Carter has helped Crash find who he is in the world, and they are deeply in love. That’s the seminal relationship right now of the series, but he’s going to need to leave and deal with his own life so that leaves Carter to deal with hers alone. So we’ll see them apart, and hopefully they’ll find their way back to each other. Of course, there are going to be some major bumps when someone new, an older guy [played by Jackson Rathbone] comes into Carter’s life, and this is going to be an enormous relationship in her life. Things won’t be easy.”

On the upcoming Gabe/Taylor/Max love triangle

“[Gabe] will have some low points, but ultimately he’ll come back to the right place. The idea of losing your parent is so enormous so he’ll struggle. It’s going to be really moving and Taylor cares so much for him, so even though she and Max are fairly solid in their relationship, her old feelings for Gabe and his new feelings for her might affect that. It’s all going to get very complicated.”
