Caroline is in a good place. She’s head over heels in love with heavily pregnant Kate as they embrace themselves for motherhood.

But Caroline’s at her best when she’s in control. Caroline’s strong exterior masks her fragility. And it’s during tougher times where she’ll reach out for a hand and most likely find her mother’s clasp to grip on to.
