'And Just Like That' Episode 3: Big's ex-wife Natasha's return leaves Carrie baffled
Carrie gets a blast from the past when Big's ex surprisingly comes into the picture
'SATC' reboot 'And Just Like That' made its debut last week with the iconic Big Apple friends returning for more drama albeit without Kim Cattrall's Samantha. Right off the bat, the premiere shocked fans when a major character was killed off.
Episode 2 saw the death of Carrie Bradshaw's (Sarah Jessica Parker) husband John Preston or as he's more fondly known as Mr Big, which left the resident fashionista in a state of unrest. Her best friends - Charlotte York Goldenblatt (Kristin Davis) and Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) - are there for her through the tough time but nothing seems to work. The third episode saw the grieving woman slowly recover but not before her dead husband delivered another shock. Read on to know what happened that left Carrie worked up and confused.
Big's death, which was the crux of the second episode, saw Carrie left depressed but the passing time seems to have done her some good as she's slowly moving on. One of the final steps before wrapping up the formalities is the reading of Big's will, followed by a lunch with the ladies. But lunch has to wait as a shock in the form of an old ex comes up in the will. Turns out Carrie's husband left a massive $1million in his ex-wife Natasha Naginsky's (Bridget Moynahan) name and the blast from the past leaves Carrie fuming.
Carrie was the woman Big had an affair with when he was married to Natasha and even left his wife for her. Hence, Carrie, who thought the old chapter was over, is clearly stunned and angry. The whole episode sees her wonder as to why her loving husband would do such a thing to her and decides to go and confront his ex herself. Although she is initially avoided by Natasha, an accidental run-in at a coffee shop leaves the two with no option but to greet each other.
The ladies chat and find out that they both are equally confused as to why Big did it. Natasha tell Carrie that she wasn't accepting the money and that her lawyers have been instructed to give it to charity. The talk goes well with the two concluding that their issues should remain a thing of the past and that the two should move on.
'And Just Like That' is available to stream on HBO Max with more to follow weekly.
