"Why Bother" is the sixth episode of Carmilla. It aired on August 19th, 2014.


Laura seems to be onto something when she uploads her videos to the Silas University network and finds out the hard way that some things are better left unsaid. 

Synopsis Edit

Ep6 1

I am going to kill you!

An enraged Laura reprimands Carmilla for her insensitivity towards the abducted. Carmilla is unaffected by her berating and derides Laura for being naive, stating that she will fail to succeed in her investigation and should just quit early on.
Ep6 4

Hell, even you deserve better.

Laura refuses to back down, admitting that despite her youth and inexperience, she refuses to take the current state of affairs lying down and will help the missing girls regardless of what Carmilla believes.

Ep6 5

You've done it now!

Laura proceeds to upload her journalism project online, ignoring Carmilla's warning that she will upset the administration by doing so. Predictably, uploading the project indeed upsets the administration, causing an alarm to go off. Perry rushes in and states the alarm regards a town hall meeting and that they must hurry to it. Laura, in a panic, runs out to attend the meeting, while Carmilla, delighted at the turn of events, steals a snack from Laura's desk and follows her.
