Outer Banks Cast Pays Tribute To Carol Sutton
During Season 2 of Outer Banks, Pope (Jonathan Daviss) is on a journey to learn about his family’s history. Pope discovers a key in his great-grandmother’s attic and is curious about where it came from. To find out the answers, he goes to see his mee-maw (Carol Sutton) in an assisted living community. This is how viewers meet Carol.
