'And Just Like That' Season 2, Episode 4 Recap: An Unexpected Threesome and Some Impressive Cameos
Is finally hitting its stride? The reboot is four episodes into its sophomore season, and Thursday's episode proved to be its best yet. With Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) back in New York City, the original gang, including Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker), Charlotte York Goldenblatt (Kristin Davis), and honorary member Anthony Marantino (Mario Cantone), is able to meet up for lunch for some gossip and dirty talk, just like the old days. There are quips about Miranda's new fluid lifestyle with Anthony calling her «Rachel Maddow.» There are not-so-subtle euphemisms on Charlotte's part — mayo, confetti, and a finale of fireworks (Happy July 4th!), no less — and at the heart of it, there's the friendships fans of the original series have come to know and love. But Miranda is also forced back into all parts of her old life, including staying in her former home with ex Steve Brady (David Eisenberg), who has taken to shirtless boxing with a punching bag and her depressed son, Brady (Niall Cunningham), who is home recovering from a tough breakup. The family goes to therapy, and Brady verbalizes what we've all been thinking as Miranda stays silent. «This is not who she is, just so you know,» he tells the therapist. And it's not who Miranda is.
