You know your family isn’t quite ordinary when your little brother is far more rational and level-headed than your parents…on a good day.
Case in point: “Finding Carter“’s very astute, grounded Grant, who is more like a grownup in a child’s body than your typical pre-teen. It’s shocking how well the kiddo’s head is screwed on, considering the fact that his older sister was abducted-then-found, his mom is a controlling Debbie Downer and his dad is a two-faced liar. Frankly, Grant is wise beyond his years, and we’ve got a handful of reasons why he’s our favorite Wilson:
1. He’s incredibly self-aware. With Elizabeth in denial that she and Carter are complete strangers and David presenting some sort of “Dad of the Year” front, Grant is like a pint-sized, well-groomed breath of fresh air. He knows that while his family loves him, he’s, well, the easily forgettable replacement kid. “I hear everything,” he said during the show’s premiere. “That’s one advantage to people not remembering you exist.”
2. He’s whip-smart. It was Grant who first figured out Carter’s grand plan to catch her “fake” mother’s attention by garnering publicity at the fro-yo shop. And Elizabeth is a police officer?
3. He’s resourceful. Grant just got a brand-new sister — of course he doesn’t want her to run away! When he heard about Carter’s secret escape plan, he tried to foil it — by taking her getaway bag. Genius.
4. He’s refreshingly honest. When he’s wrong, he owns up to it, which is more than most adults do. (*cough* cheating Elizabeth *cough* two-faced David)
