The third season of the drama series ‘All American‘ left many questions in the viewers’ minds about the continuation of a few characters. This includes the character of Carrie, played by Anna Lore, who is presented as her rehab partner of Layla.
Carrie suffers from depression, which was exhibited by her attempt to commit suicide by jumping off the cliff. The end of the third season was left on a cliffhanger regarding the fates of three of the important characters Coop, Carrie, and Layla.
End Of The Third Season
At the end of the third season, fans were left hanging, with Carrie and Layla driving into the night. Carrie had previously assumed Layla was in the same headspace as her. She planned the death of both of them to end the suffering caused to them regularly.
When Carrie and Layla visit Layla’s parents, Carrie leaves a suicide note in Layla’s house. The note notifies the parents that Layla wants to take her own life. This shows the unhealthy obsessive bond formed between Carrie and Layla.
Carrie earlier believed Layla to be as depressed and self-sabotaging as herself. It is, however, revealed that Layla wants to continue her life and, unlike Carrie, is not suffering. Carrie’s mental damage also causes her to convince Layla that ending their lives is the only way to end their pain. Layla was able to talk her off the idea of jumping and walking back to a safer distance from the cliff.
However, this hurt her more, ending with Carrie trying to kill Layla, which led to additional emotional damage. She also realized how lonely she felt at the moment and wanted to kill off herself. The episode ends with Carrie walking off to the cliff.
Season 4 Premiere
Layla continues to persuade Carrie not to take her life. She tried to install the possibility for both of them to reach a healthier mind space. Her words, however, weren’t able to reach Carrie, who was stuck with the thoughts of ending her immediate pain by ending her life. Finally, Layla can talk to Carrie to get down the cliff and convince her that her life is worth living.
They walked back to a safer distance from the cliff to the car. Later, Carrie was pictured crying in Layla’s arms as she told her that she would go back to rehab.
Following The Incident
This experience left Layla completely traumatized, and she was getting a lot of nightmares about it. It was a near-death experience for Layla. Adding to the damage was that she also almost witnessed Carrie, who is precious to her, trying to take her own life.
Moving on from this would be challenging for Layla. This season, we’ll see Carrie’s and Layla’s reactions to this situation, how they handle it psychologically, and how they recover. We’ll also see what other experiences they will have during the season.
