Spoilers for 'And Just Like That' Episode 8 'Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered'

It's Thursday again and with it, HBO Max brings us the weekly dose of 'And Just Like That'. The 'Sex and the City' reboot has been in the public eye ever since its conception but the new take on the original doesn't seem to be working very well.

'And Just Like That' sees our beloved NYC ladies living life in their 50s and the new age brings a wide new variety of situations. Modernity and diversity have been the main theme of the show which had led the characters in very surprising directions. In episode 7 we saw Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) get it on with Carrie Bradshaw's (Sarah Jessica Parker) boss, Che Diaz (Sara Ramirez) once more and even drop the L word! Yep, she told Che she loves her making for a shocking new development. Read on to know what happened next on 'And Just Like That' and how fans reacted.

'And Just Like That' Episode 5: Miranda indulges in steamy kitchen sex with Che

We previously saw Miranda confess to Carrie that her marriage with Steve isn't working out after Carrie caught her cheating and since then she once more slept with Che while confessing her love. After a failed attempt at having sex with Steve (David Eigenberg) last episode, Miranda finally ended things with her husband in the eight-episode. The breakup was particularly sad as she indelicately told her husband that he was never enough for her and that there was someone else in her life. The man was clearly hurt and exhausted dealing with a draining breakup which ended with her asking for a divorce. 

But that's not all as Che was in the dark about Miranda's marriage situation and had assumed that she was in an open marriage. And when she found out Miranda was not in an open marriage and was in fact cheating and sneaking around, she too was hurt. The eighth episode of the series showcased Miranda being very harsh, and dismissive of others' feelings with her selfish actions and fans were just not having it. Taking to Twitter to vent about the character and her actions, here's what they had to say.

A fan said, "“I didn’t make him feel bad!” - miranda after telling steve that he’s never enough #andjustlikethat", while another commented, "Fuck Miranda Hobbs. That’s it. That’s the tweet #AndJustLikeThat". A tweet read, "Che was so hurt. Miranda really shouldn't have been sneaking around #AndJustLikeThat". 

Another viewer said, "#AndJustLikeThat Fuck Miranda. Fuck Che. Fuck this whole shitshow. Steve deserves better. And I hope Brady despises his mother.", while another aos added, "#andjustlikethat Miranda can go fall in a ditch. Omg poor Steve was just exhausted. It’s never been enough?!? SO YOU ARE ACTING LIKE FIRST MOVIE NEVER HAPPENED!!?!? I’m done. I am soooo done". A tweet also read, "#andjustlikethat oh lord Miranda has she has like lost her mind and sense of empathy for peoples feelings or something else? She is way off it".
