In the Max series finale, we witnessed Aidan (John Corbett) facing a challenging situation involving his teenage son, Wyatt. The incident took him away from Carrie’s (Sarah Jessica Parker) final dinner party, a major event that would mark a significant shift for the characters. The episode ended on a poignant note, as Aidan grappled with the memories associated with Carrie’s apartment and their past together.

The finale picked up shortly thereafter, as Carrie returned to her iconic apartment, setting the stage for a series of heartwarming and bittersweet moments. One of the most anticipated reunions was between Carrie and Samantha (Kim Cattrall). Samantha’s unexpected call from London revealed her intentions to be part of Carrie’s “Last Supper.” Her cameo brought a touch of glamor and nostalgia to the scene, marking a special moment in their friendship.


Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) also took steps towards reconciliation in the finale. Her candid conversation with Steve (David Eigenberg) at his food stand was a heartfelt attempt to bridge the gap between their past and present.

“The only part you weren’t right about was us,” Miranda said.

“No. I was right about us for a long time,” Steve replied.

A Night of Revelations and Resolutions

As the episode unfolded, all the characters came together, each with their own stories and personal journeys. Anthony and Giuseppe added a touch of humor as they playfully bantered over Anthony’s refusal to swap sexual positions in bed. Seema’s arrival with Ravi brought an element of uncertainty, as she confided in Carrie about her conflicted feelings.

“Maybe you’re scared,” Carrie explained. “This might be what you’ve been waiting for, and you might be scared to death.”

Amidst the gathering, Harry’s late arrival with a brand new phone for Charlotte sparked a reminder of the couple’s enduring quirks. Lisa’s quiet confession to Charlotte about her miscarriage highlighted the complexities of life’s challenges, even in the midst of celebration.

Nya’s unexpected discovery about the identity of chef added an intriguing twist, showcasing the interconnectedness of their world. Miranda’s conversation with Che was a poignant moment of growth for both characters, as they reflected on their past relationship and the valuable lessons learned. “Like a good trainwreck, right?” Miranda asked. “You know, where nobody dies and you get off the train in a new place, a place where you needed to go to, but only that train could get you there? That’s what I want to believe.”

The theme of reflection and closure continued as the guests shared their “letting go” words during dinner. Carrie’s own choice of “expectations” resonated deeply, encapsulating the uncertainty of life’s twists and turns.

As the evening drew to a close, individual paths began to unfold. Miranda’s triumphant appearance on the BBC marked a significant achievement, symbolizing her newfound confidence and success. Toussaint and Nya’s connection deepened, while Anthony and Giuseppe found common ground. Charlotte and Harry’s struggle with technology reflected their unwavering commitment to each other.

Embracing the Future and Moving Forward

And Just Like That season 2 finale was a tapestry of emotions, as characters confronted their past, navigated their present, and embraced the promise of the future.
