Ms. King's affecting portrayal of Aliyah was definitely one of the many highlights of the series. As a religious woman determined to save her brother, Carter Nix, she was strong and bold and heartbreaking. Her brother is unfortunately addicted to both drugs and his destructive relationship with Aubry Taylor, but Aliyah never gives up.
