In the original novel, Carrie and Sue speak to each other again after the disastrous prom in a powerful scene, in which Sue convinces Carrie she wished her no harm and holds her while she dies. This event doesn't play out, however, exactly like the book in any of the film versions: in the original 1976 film, Sue and Carrie never speak again and Sue goes into a mental breakdown after returning home, which is described in the sequel, "The Rage." In the 2002 version, Sue actually saves Carrie from drowning in her tub, drives her to another state and coolly pretends she never saw her after returning to town. And in this version, Sue finds Carrie in her house with her dead mother and Carrie faces her aggressively, lifting her off the ground and then finding by use of her power that Sue's pregnant. After exchanging some words and persuading Carrie she didn't mean to hurt her, Carrie flings Sue out of the house before it crumbles to the ground, and Sue goes on to testify in defense of Carrie's character in court.
