Despite the fact that the Sex and the City spin-off And Just Like That… was the dumbest, most offensively terrible content I’ve ever seen on television (and I watched all of Glee… twice), HBO Max renewed that shit for a second season, which is currently shooting in NYC. In August, we learned that John Corbett would reprise his role as Aidan, Sarah Jessica Parker’s Carrie’s long-suffering carpenter ex. Over the weekend, Deadline reported that the show’s official Instagram posted pics of Carrie and Aidan (seen above in the original series) holding hands while walking down the middle of the street. Um, Carrie? Sweetie? You’ve already lost one dude to a Peloton heart attack; maybe hop on over to the sidewalk, so poor Aidan doesn’t get mowed down by an Uber.
At the end of Season 1, the Widow Carrie Bradshaw scatters Big’s ashes in Paris and makes out with her podcast producer in an elevator. It looked like Season 2 was going to be all about Carrie partaking in some actual Sex in the City. Get out there! Meet new men! Try new penises! And/or… backslide into another toxic tryst with Aidan. Here are the pics. It looks like the costume department couldn’t settle on a look for Carrie, so they just threw three coats on top of SJP and called it “FASHUN”:
Before And Just Like That… aired, John Corbett punk’d everyone by claiming he’d signed on to appear in the first season. But he didn’t. After the finale, executive producer Michael Patrick King explained that the first season was all about Carrie grieving Big’s death, and “Aidan’s return is a big storyline that everybody at home wrote that we had never intended.” Sooo are these Carrie/Aidan pics actually for real, or just fan service clickbait?
If the writers really wanna bring back one of Carrie’s old boyfriends, I’d suggest they go with Season 1’s Sam, played by Timothy Olyphant. The only reason Carrie broke up with Sam is cuz he was a twenty-something slob who had roommates (GASP!) and didn’t stock up on essentials like toilet paper or coffee filters. But 25 years have passed since that ep aired. Surely present-day Sam has learned how to cook, clean, and be an adult, right? And even if he hasn’t, it’s motherfucking Timothy Olyphant. I’d choose him over TP any day.
