Well it finally happened, Sebastian and Carrie are done which can hopefully mean no more ‘I’m sorry’ puppy dog eyes from Sebastian. Also hopefully no more cheesy ‘I hate you because I love you’ lines from Carrie, but we can only hope. Anyways Larissa ended up bringing Zen to Carrie after her trip to Japan, but it turns out staying Zen is hard work.
It’s the end of summer meaning Carrie and Walt has to move out and Larissa will move back in. Larissa comes back with cool fashion and a new state of mind, but it turns out that Larissa and Samantha will not be buddies anytime soon. You know I always envied Carrie in Sex in the City not only for her clothes, and rent controlled New York apartment, but the fact that she can have a close circle of girlfriends that didn’t hate each other. This episode however is much more relatable since Larissa and Samantha end up not liking each other from the start for their differences. Turns out that Larissa is a stuck up snob, and Samantha’s outgoing and sexual personality is too much for her. I’m happy that Carrie picks Samantha to be the lifelong friend in the end.
Walt mentally prepares himself to go back in the closet for high school. It is sad to watch, but the positive thing is that Bennett offers him his help if he ever needs any. When Walt goes back to high school he does so with a Jets sweater that everyone keeps calling a jersey even though it obviously isn’t. The jocks keep trying to strike up sports conversation with him, and he gets a black eye for kissing Donna, who nuzzled him in hopes to help him pass as straight but forgot she has a jealous boyfriend. The one thing that does go right for Walt is that Maggie makes amends with him by apologizing for not being more understanding. I’m glad that they could bury the hatchet. I’m sure it was heart breaking for Maggie to find out that her first relationship was based on a lie. I can’t really blame her for needing some time to be angry about it.
So in the previous episodes we got a little taste of what young Samantha is like, but in this episode we see how she is towards men. She picks up a ninja who was performing in a Japanese garden, and has sex with him. She tries to sneak out with the mystery man asleep with his ninja mask on his face, but he wakes up takes it off to Samantha’s dismay. She was still very much into role play and mystery back then which was cool to see, but makes me wonder. Would a woman truly be into these sex games for over 20 years? It almost makes more sense if Samantha was in a strict and boring long relationship in her twenties only to come out of it later to want to start experimenting. It makes me feel like something is missing from her puzzle. Why does Samantha not like emotional attachment? We know that her mother is unreliable because she always was off with a new guy, but what else makes her suspicious of men?
This episode was very interesting when it came to Carrie’s father. He goes back and forth on going back to working in a big practice. He then has a very telling conversation with his friend about raising children. His friend says that Tom should try to be around for his daughters or they will be forever lost when it comes to men. But we know that Carrie does become lost when it comes to men, and it was explained in Sex in the City that that was because her father was never around. It will be interesting to see if the father will still stay in the storyline as the great dotting dad that he is, or if he will change.
So it all comes down to Carrie and Sebastian once again. Dorritt tricks Carrie into meeting Sebastian in an empty classroom which only leads to them ripping each other’s clothes off. They get caught by a teacher and get detention. After school Sebastian goes to Carrie’s house with that sad look on his face again only to tell her that he wants to make life simpler for her by not dating. Carrie doesn’t fight him on this and they break up. It is actually a much more mature break up than a normal high school one, but I can’t complain. I’m just happy that it happened.
So Lydia readers are you sad about Sebastian and Carrie being done? Also who do you like more Larissa or Samantha?
