'And Just Like That' Episode 9 Review: Diving into love and all things womanly
Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte all take new steps in their lives and loves in the latest episode of the 'SATC' reboot
Spoilers for 'And Just Like That' Episode 9 'No Strings Attached'
It's almost the end of the line for 'And Just Like That' Season 1 as it returned with the ninth episode. Our favorite characters graced our screens for more fun-filled drama in the Big Apple where life is always bustling.
Previously on 'And Just Like That,' all of our main 3 ladies took big steps in their lives. Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) left Steve (David Eigenberg) for Che Diaz (Sara Ramirez), embarking on a new journey of love and discovery. Along the same lines, we had Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) get ready to go on a date in order to move on from grieving about her husband's death. Meanwhile, Charlotte York Goldenblatt (Kristin Davis) is dealing with children who are growing up fast, leaving her puzzled and stressed. Read on to know what happened in the latest episode and what we thought of it.
The ninth episode of the series saw Carrie finally go on a date with Peter (Jon Tenney), only to show up there to tell him she's not ready and apologize. She still wore Big's (Chris Noth) ring after being confused about whether it was time to truly move on. Miranda, on the other hand, is exploring her new relationship with Che and the intricacies of being a girlfriend. Meanwhile, Charlotte, the ever-doting mother has her hands full at the moment as her daughters evolve as young people.
The penultimate episode focused on all the different things women have to deal with and the expectations that come along with being a lady. From Charlotte being glad to finally achieve menopause but later getting a flash period where her friends have her back to Miranda acting like a teen in love, today's episode centered on ladies. Charlotte teaching her daughter how to put in a tampon was a sweet, funny scenario between the mother and daughter as they shared the experience. The episode also brought up Nya (Karen Pittman) and how her husband and she didn't agree on having kids, which highlighted norms set by society. Also in focus was the topic of love between different characters. Steve is still trying to understand his wife's actions and declaring that despite it all he'll love her forever. A bittersweet moment. In contrast, the newly blossoming love between Che and Miranda was a fairly happy situation. Che however let Miranda know that although they're not dating yet, their time together means that they are getting to know each other first, making for a realistic, modern take.
The episode also had a cameo from none other than William Abadie who we know as the flirty and charming Antoine Lambert from 'Emily in Paris.' If all goes right, the cameo may become a series regular role if he becomes Seema's new love interest. Continuing our dive into love, by the end of the episode we also see Carrie take a step and ask Peter for another chance, setting up her foray into a new Mr Big-less future. Summing it up, the episode focused on the ladies, the different and fresh circumstances of their lives and loves. Overall, one of the better episodes of the woke reboot.
'And Just Like That' returns with a new episode each Thursday on HBO Max
