Does Carrie Bradshaw have DEMENTIA? Fans see signs in latest episode of 'And Just Like That'
Spoilers for 'And Just Like That'
The latest show on HBO Max 'And Just Like That', a reboot of the 'Sex and the City' franchise, premiered on December 9, 2021. In regard to the latest episode of the series, fans seem to think that lead Carrie Bradshaw might be suffering from memory loss.
In the second episode of the series, Carrie (played by Sarah Jessica Parker), while in conversation with Miranda Hobbes (played by Cynthia Nixon) left viewers aghast when she said she keeps her coffee in the freezer. Shortly after, Carrie finds trouble recollecting what she and Miranda were talking about.
Having said that, this scene, in particular, takes place shortly after John Preston, also called Mr Big (played by Chris Noth) succumbs to a heart attack out of the blue. Carrie calls up Miranda, who decides to spend the night with a distraught Carrie, to make sure she isn't alone. Not having gotten a wink of sleep, Carrie acts rather odd the following morning, gesturing at the freezer when Miranda asks where she keeps her coffee. Like this in itself isn't enough to puzzle fans, Carrie also forgets what the two were talking about mid-conversation and asks Miranda, who is patient throughout, to remind her what they were discussing.
Fans seem to think Carrie is navigating her way through the loss of her husband or that she is showing symptoms of dementia. Some also think that the reason her coffee is in the freezer is to keep it fresh and last longer.
What's more, reports state that people suffering from dementia usually hide things in strange places, mainly due to having forgotten where they've kept them.
So what will be the final verdict? Is Carrie just going through a tough, rough patch of grief or does she need professional help? Stay tuned to find out!
New episodes of 'And Just Like That' air every Friday, at 3 am ET/12 am PT on HBO Max.
