The episode begins post-engagement smash-up, with Aidan finally going away and Carrie begging him to not. Aidan, one of many few figures on the show to work out any judiciousness regarding their feelings, still makes ‐ but he additionally departs her a page. Carrie, convinced it is a love page (oh, yes, Carrie, you actually deserve a love page in this instance), paces herself and lastly starts it, simply to learn it is really a document that is legal fundamentally asks her to put on (the cash to purchase right right back her apartment) or shove away (obtain the hell away from what exactly is legitimately Aidan’s apartment within four weeks). Carrie reacts horrifically ‐ by whining to Samantha, Miranda, and Charlotte ‐ without taking into consideration the undeniable fact that needless to say this will take place, he has the apartment. She attempts a break at obligation ‐ looking to get a financial loan (she’s got no assets, shockingly sufficient), targeting a less expensive life style (she attempts to drive the coach precisely as soon as within the episode), calculating her fashion expenses ($40,000 on shoes alone ‐ as a other journalist, we can’t assist but fall my couch off each time this quantity is mentioned), as well as considering other apartments (shitholes, all). Carrie’s monetary life is a goddamn trainwreck, and she can’t also buck up sufficient to make the coach rather than a cab. Insanity.
Her move that is next is more insane. She visits Big (Chris Noth). You keep in mind Big, right? The man Carrie fundamentally wound up with, but additionally the man she cheated on Aidan with, the man he can’t overcome (and whom Carrie can’t conquer either), the reason that is entire the termination of their engagement?
