But as Charlotte told us in Season 3 in One definitely not sober conversation about bisexuality, “I love the brand,” and she’s not talking about Gucci and Versace. Charlotte worked incredibly hard to get her all: wife, mother, and especially Jewish. “Who going out there and making them molt today,” she said, beaming. In a fitting twist, someone turned out to be Charlotte.
Meanwhile, Carrie spends most of this episode obsessed with Big. An old lamp flickered inexplicably, even after she had rewound it, and she couldn’t help but wonder if Big was trying to tell her something from beyond the grave. Is he mad at her for the passionate kiss she shared with Peter on her doorstep? Is he just sick of being stacked in the closet next to her old shoes?
Perhaps Big would have told her more clearly if he’d appeared to her more clearly, and he did initially – he was cut from Carrie’s dream sequence following allegations of assault sexual favors for the actor who played him, Chris Noth. Instead, Carrie has to rely on her interpretation of the dream, in which she finds herself in Paris, standing in the street as a line in their love theme, “Hello It’s Me,” echoes. up, part of Big’s voice: “It’s important to me that you know you’re free. “
This is the permission Carrie needs in the end to continue.
She also takes it as a sign that Big wants his ashes scattered across Paris, from “their bridge.” the Pont des Arts. (Basically double bridge, right? But Carrie is mourning so we’ll let her have it.) It’s the story where he finally tells Carrie that she is the love of his life, at the end of the original series.
So, in a Carrie-est of Carrie way, she shows up in their old spot in a hooded cape, looking like an orange custard apple strolling around, with a purse open completely. in fact the Eiffel Tower is being used as a travel urn, and letting Mr. Big: his remains, and his ghost go.
The scene is emotional, a little ridiculous, and somehow poignant, which is the messy combination this movie thrives on.
