Smile everybody! It’s prom time. While most may be traumatized at the memory of glittery heels and plastic corsage boxes, it’s best to embrace the good and the bad and Carrie, everyone’s favorite telekinetic heroine, does just that.

This time, let’s be sure to enforce more shower curtains and less tormenting bullies.
