So this week was all about setting up, but mostly tearing down boundaries. Carrie starts a new relationship with a playwright who she was supposed to interview, Sebastian is still boinking a much older lady, Bennett and Walt are finally exclusive, and Dorritt defiled Carrie’s bed with her boyfriend. Yeah it’s a lot but let’s start off with Carrie’s new man.
Adam or ‘Weaver’ as he likes to be called wrote a play about his dead brother who he never really got along with. Carrie is supposed to write an article on the mysterious guy, but instead bonds with him since she has lost her mother. Then of course she falls for him because he is cuter than Sebastian. Duh! This however causes a conflict and she decides not to write her story about him. If she did it could have ended his career. No one likes a fame hungry person who hates his dead brother. The whole scene where he admits this actually made me scared of him for his coldness. We get it you didn’t get as much hugs from your parents, but still that guy is your brother! Anyways Larissa is not impressed by Carrie’s decision to not write her story and understandably banishes her to only doing coffee runs. Larissa may seem like the cold one in this situation, but in the end it’s business and Carrie doesn’t seem ready.
Did anyone else get flashbacks to The Hills when Lauren Conrad chose her boyfriend over going to Paris, then her editor was all sour to her for not going? No? I’m the only one that misses that reality show? Ok.
Now I never understood high school kids that had sex on their parents’ bed. I get it it’s bigger, but come on and have some respect! Dorritt doesn’t use her dad’s bed, but Carrie’s instead. When Deb and her crappy son, Dylan come over to meet Carrie and Dorritt things go haywire when Carrie finds a condom wrapper on her floor. She confronts Dorritt about it but Dylan walks in on them and threatens to tell about the condom wrapper if they don’t show him some ‘juggs’. They instead threaten to bust his balls via wedgie. The whole argument passes onto Deb and Carrie’s father where they can’t agree whose kid is at fault. They end up breaking up because Deb is nothing but an enabler to her bratty son.
So Bennett and Walt start off as still not exclusive. When Walt visits Bennett and Carrie at Interview he gets hit on by an ad sales guy named Blake. To my dismay Walt asks Bennett’s permission to go on a date. Walt stop giving him all the power in your relationship, you know what nonexclusive means! Anyways Bennett grants him his wish only to get jealous when he sees that they do go on a date together. He ends up crashing it and asks Walt to be exclusive. So once again Walt never gets to experience anyone, but Bennett. I think Bennett is very selfish, but only time will tell if Walt will see that or not.
Finally let’s talk about the weakest part of this series –Sebastian. Sadly we still have to follow his storyline even though he and Carrie are over with. This probably means that they will get back together which sucks. Anyways he is skipping school and spending his time with older housewife, Vicky. She is all bored and asking about high school gossip which makes her look pathetic. He says that he will love Carrie for the rest of his life which is pretty laughable. I’m sorry but I can’t take his constant pouty face and him being rich and emo all the time. I hope that these two stop hanging out because it’s dull. But since Maggie dropped in on them and is threatening to tell Carrie, who knows where this will lead.
So Lydia readers do you agree with Carrie’s decision to not write her story on Weaver? Do you like Weaver or Sebastian more so far?
