Chasing Life Season 2 Premiere: A View From the Ledge

Heather Joy Smith Chasing Life, Freeform Shows, Top Stories, TV 0 Comments

Tonight I grabbed my box of tissues and turned on ABC Family for the Season 2 premiere of “Chasing Life.” Certain I would be sobbing by the end, I really went into tonight’s episode expecting April was leaving us soon.

I’m not sure why I expecting this outcome tonight, especially since the entire show is wrapped around her and her family, but the way the writers left us hanging last season, what else could I expect? After watching tonight’s episode (I didn’t need tissues, in case you were wondering) I feel like there are so many ways the remainder of this season could go.

CHASING LIFE - "A View from the Ledge" - Season two of "Chasing Life" picks up moments after Leo's surprising marriage proposal. April will try to live life to the fullest despite her recent relapse. From wedding dress shopping to a surprise trip, and a bachelorette party ending in jail time, April is determined to enjoy everything. The rest of the Carver family must deal with the effects of April's illness and choices as the medical bills start to mount up. Meanwhile, questions arise about a mystery surrounding their father's death. "Chasing Life" premieres on Monday, July 6th at 10:00PM-11:00PM ET/PT."

A lot of the messages in the episode were about learning to live your life to the fullest. Cancer or not, a majority of us are walking around daily just in motion. We never stray too far from the norm and we certainly don’t take as many risks as we should. After this episode, I feel like I need to take a look at my life. What makes me happy? What is challenging me? Who am I? These are all questions April will have answered over the course of this season.

I think for April, she needed to get fired from her new job in order to move on and be able to live her life to the fullest. One question I have for everyone reading is, do you think she will be happier with Dominic? Was her dream really how she feels or wants in her life? I used to be 100% team Dominic, but now I have fallen for Leo. I feel like they might be better for each other RIGHT NOW. That’s not to say she is ACTUALLY better with him. I could go on a tangent, but we’ll leave that for now. By the way, in the future PR photos, they just posted pictures of the girls trying on their bridesmaids dresses. I guess that means April Hendrie is in the future.

Now for the JUICY part… SPOILER ALERT… Do not continue reading if you’re not ready. Okay, but seriously, is Thomas still alive? I can’t believe that Natalie found the manuscript for “Chasing Life.” It’s going to be interesting if he is still alive. What if he is a 100% match for bone marrow with April? Where has he been? Does George know he is still alive. I’m a fan of George, but if he knew all along and didn’t say anything. My fandom for George will be over, just like his relationship with the Carver family!

Ok so here is my quick prediction: Thomas is alive, George knows, the Carvers want to disown him, but they can’t because he is a 100% bone marrow match with April. Second (later) prediction, Thomas becomes close to Natalie!  Ohhhhhh the drama that is sure to happen.
