Carter, with Terry after the plane explosion

Carter boarded Flight 180, with his girlfriend Terry Chaney. When Alex attempts to warn the other passengers about Flight 180 exploding, Carter believes he is making it the whole thing up as a joke, and tries to fight him. As a result, both of them are removed from the plane, along with Terry and four others. After the plane departs, Carter began to criticize and mock Alex, who fights with him at the terminal. While the guards manage to separate them, the plane explodes shortly after, as Alex predicted.

In the aftermath, Carter continued to show hostility towards Alex refusing to admit that he saved him. At the memorial, he tells Alex that he doesn't owe him anything and that he is in charge of his own life. Later, Carter is driving with Terry when he sees Alex and Clear talking at a cafe. When he confronts Alex, Terry storms on in frustration and is suddenly killed by a speeding bus, leaving Carter devastated.

Carter confronts Alex at the cafe

When the survivors reunite, Alex explains that Death is claiming the lives of those who were meant to die on the plane. After learning that he is next on Death's list, Carter, frustrated over having no control over his life, begins to drive recklessly through the street despite the others trying to stop him. He stalls his car on a railroad track, wanting to die on his own terms. Carter changes his mind at the last minute but finds himself trapped inside the car when the doors are locked and his seat belt jams. Alex manages to save him at the last second, just before his car is smashed by an oncoming train, and Death skips him.

Death

Carter, immediately before he is crushed by the neon sign.

Six months later, Carter, Alex and Clear travel to Paris to celebrate their survival. While relaxing outside a French restaurant, Alex starts to see more omens foreshadowing his death and Carter playfully taunted Alex, claiming that he is next. After Alex leaves the table he is almost hit by a bus, but it swerves and crashes into a pole, that flies into the air and knocks a sign of its hinges. The sign comes swinging down towards Alex, but Carter shoves Alex out of the way at the last second, claiming that he was right which Alex responds that he just skipped him.

When Carter questions who is next, the sign swings back down towards Carter, crushing him and revealed that if Death skips someone it will eventually come back for them.

Signs/Clues

  • Sam Lawton the first visionary worked in the restaurant and then Peter Friedkin died there too.
  • A man is singing 'Rocky Mountain High' in French.
  • Before the accident that causes his death Alex sees a butchered piece of meat.
  • A gust of wind blows when Alex starts seeing omens, hinting at Death's presence.
  • Carter almost died when a train almost ran his car over, but Alex saved him at the last second. In return, Carter helped Alex from the sign at the last second.
  • Alex is nearly ran over by a bus, the same way that Terry died.
  • After Terry dies, the bloodstain on Carter's face really looks like number "5". He was the fifth survivor to die, after Death skipped him earlier.
  • The plate number is RFK- 575 which is for Robert F. Kennedy who was shot

Final Destination 2

Hey, do you guys remember that theatre in Paris that collapsed last year and killed everybody inside? Well, I had tickets to go but one night, I'm in Paris and I'm just tripping on acid and sipping lattes and such. And then all of a sudden, this dude out of nowhere just get whacked by this falling sign.
