'And Just Like That' Episode 10: A solid finale that gives hope as well as false hope
Spoilers for 'And Just Like That' Episode 10 'Seeing the Light'
It's another Thursday but this time things are a bit different as it's the day 'And Just Like That' aired its final episode of the season. The 'Sex and the City' revival series, which follows the iconic ladies we loved in their 30s, sees them navigate life in their 50s.
Previously on 'And Just Like That', we saw the ladies having each others' back in various scenarios. Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) is about to go on her first date since her husband passed, Charlotte York Goldenblatt (Kristin Davies) has her hands full with her teenage daughters, while Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) continues to explore her evolving sexuality with new love Che Diaz (Sara Ramirez). Here's what happened in the last episode of the HBO Max show and what we thought of it.
The last episode saw Carrie finally go on a date and even share her first kiss post Big's death, but she didn't feel anything for him which was regretful. Charlotte organizes a 'they-mitzvah' for Rock (Alexa Swinton) but when her child refuses to go through with the ceremony, she steps in and becomes a bat-mitzvah herself making for a very wholesome moment. Meanwhile, Miranda is about to make a huge change in her life as she plans to go to LA with Che to be with her lady-love who is filming a pilot in Hollywood.
The finale served as one of the better episodes of the series if not the best as it felt more like 'Sex and the City' with all the new changes that are happening in the ladies' lives. From a trans rabbi who steps in unexpectedly to give Carrie and Miranda advice to support each other despite everything, the episode was a reflection of its roots. Seema's character has found a love interest who is just to her taste and we predicted right as it's none other than Zed (William Abadie), the handsome flirt whom we know from 'Emily in Paris', making for an exciting new couple. Carrie is also dealing with the dilemma of where to scatter Big's ashes and the writer chose the perfect spot by rehashing their memory of their beloved Paris bridge. She is also seen texting Samantha throughout her whole ordeal.
Another great highlight was Miranda dying her hair back to her iconic auburn color for a great throwback as she leaves for LA. Although the episode had some good aspects, we see Carrie about to reunite with Samantha in Paris as her friend confirms her attendance for drinks the next night via text, which we feel is plain harsh as we know Kim Cattrall will not be joining the show. Even the makers have confirmed that there is no chance of her returning, so the false hope that makes original fans happy is just in bad taste. The episode ends as we see Carrie spontaneously kiss her podcast producer leaving the door open for various characters and many scenarios to come.
All 10 episodes of 'And Just Like That' are now available on HBO Max.
