The Carrie Diaries - Season 2 - Latest from Zap2it - 17th January 2014

"The Carrie Diaries" took a turn for the serious last week when Walt (Brendan Dooling) and Bennett (Jake Robinson) had their first brush with the mid-'80s NYC AIDS crisis. And while they both tested negative, that health scare prompted Walt to break up with Bennett.

Executive producer Amy B. Harris reveals that Walt and Bennett are going to be dealing with both the breakup and the AIDS scare in different ways. "Walt moves back into his family's house and his struggle for the next few episodes is can you deny who you really are? How is that going to go for you?" Harris tells Zap2it. "And Walt and Bennett are not going to be together and I think Bennett is going to show some surprising responses of his own to the breakup."

As if being dumped isn't stressful enough, Bennett is also going to have to deal with that fact his ex is in the hospital dying of AIDS, though we won't see that onscreen. "We're not going to see him handling his ex's battle with AIDs. We're going to be seeing how the breakup and the near scare with an almost potential death sentence affects both of them," Harris says. "For Walt, it really shuts him down and for Bennett, it makes him act out."
