Chasing Life, Italia Ricci

ABC Family/Valerio Ziccanu Chessa

Have you stopped crying yet? Because we're still over here bawling our eyes out over the season two finale of Chasing Life. Just when something good happens for poor April Carver (Italia Ricci), something truly devastating happens in return, and the whopper she was dealt in the finale was pretty darn tragic.

In the hour—which could very well be the series finale if ABC Family doesn't order a third season of the show—she found out that her clinical trial wasn't working, leaving her just as sick as she was before. She finally decided to YOLO it up and headed to Italy with her friends on the honeymoon she never got to have with Leo, where she realized that she'd finished doing everything on the bucket list she'd made when she was first diagnosed with cancer.

In the final moments of the episode, April revealed that she'd run out of options for existing clinical trials, leaving her only treatment option a potentially unsuccessful transplant—and she didn't want that. As she broke the news to bestie Beth (Aisha Dee) and love Dominic (Richard Brancatisano) as they watched the sun set in Rome, she seemed at peace with her life.

"I've realized what my final chapter is. We're in it—it's this," she said. "I don't want to go home and have a transplant that could kill me slowly in front of my family and the people that I love. If I were to die tomorrow, I have lived more in 25 years than most people do in 70."

As Beth protested, telling her friend not to give up with her treatment, April responded, "It's not giving up because I've already won. I could die happy here."

Elsewhere in the Carver family, April's little sis was rocked by a breakup when her boyfriend decided he needed to focus on treating his lymphoma instead of being consumed by teenage lust—oh yeah, and she found out she might've been the stem cell donor for said sick now-ex-boyfriend. Plus, policemen arrived on the steps of the Carver homestead looking for Uncle George. Could half-sister Natalie and her mom have reported George to the cops for his hand in Thomas Carver's death?

Meanwhile, Beth finally worked up the courage to tell her boyfriend that she was pregnant—and on her trip to Italy with April and Dominic, she decided she wanted to keep the baby.

There's plenty of drama to sustain Chasing Life for at least one more season, but the episode really did provide some (devastating) closure for April and her story.
