He took issue with how the series itself ended, where after a fortnight of nightmares with her boyfriend in Paris, Carrie is rescued by Big and taken back to New York.
At a certain point, you've got to let them follow their vision But the show initially was going off script from the romantic comedies that had come before it. That's what had made women so attached. The only fabulous thing she's ever done, despite what she may think of herself, she leaves him straight after climax, not returning the favour.
Cane Peterson Carrie simply LOVES not learning her lesson to date immature men and spends a weekend flouncing around on skateboards and reading comics. There wasn't even a takeaway lesson from this one, just Carrie being a dickhead. Not your fault he's a presumptious fool. Patrick Breen This long term romance, aka two episodes of Hamptons fun, saw Carrie entertain the idea of a doctor boyfriend. Of course, she crumbles to pieces seeing Big with his new girlfriend, never to see Dr Meego again.
Not even for therapy, which she desperately needs. Richard Joseph Paul This is the guy that gets 'addicted' to Carrie as a replacement for alcohol. Who actually knows, the womans a nightmare. Jon Bon Jovi In another episode of 'all the ridiculously famous men you never realized were on SATC', Bon Jovi is the living embodiment of everything Carrie does wrong in relationships.
She falls for a guy in her therapist's office, where she's trying to figure out why she always chooses the wrong men, who reveals after sleeping with her that he's in therapy because he 'loses interest after sex'. Carries life summed up in one sentence. Eddie Cahill In an episode that proved Carrie is about as politically aware as a fig, Sean played her bisexual boyfriend. She couldn't quite get on board with the fact that Sean was attracted to both women and men, feminist icon that she is.
Craig Bierko Sometimes, I swear Carrie dates men just so she can use a good metaphor to describe them. Simultaneously playing Jazz music and her, Ray fell short when he couldn't focus on her for more than 2 minutes, literally.
David Duchovny Taking Carries ability to understand mental health issues to that all-time low, this episode sees Carrie reunite with her high school sweetheart only to learn he's in a mental health facility. His year-long stay is what gets it for her, even though it'd probably do her some good to join him. Chris Noth Love him or hate him, he's what she bloody deserves.
Not the painful back and forth through 6 seasons, that's not anything you'd wish on your worst enemy, but in the end she CAN'T be with a man like Aidan. She's selfish, needy and whiny. An all round dickhead if you will.
And Big is the shaft to her bellend, one cannot survive without the other. John Corbett The human embodiment of a puppy dog, Aidan is Carrie's antithesis and frankly, far too good for her. Dean Winters A lesson in how to choose a fuck buddy, Dean plays carries 'in-between relationships' guy.
While Carrie has awful taste in dateable men, she has a rare stroke of luck with this one since he is PERFECT fuck buddy material being the most boring person on earth but good in bed. She doesn't see it that way, of course, but who expects to date their fuck buddy anyway? John Slattery Exploring all the aspects of modern day relationships as it did eye roll , this episode saw Carrie encounter a man with a golden shower fetish. TBH we don't blame her for running from this one, how the fuck are you meant to orgasm with piss all over your chest?
Ron Livingston The whiniest, most insecure of all men Carrie dated, Berger gave us all the tell-tale signs of men to avoid. This ridiculous, confusing choice of love interest for Carrie frankly lasted far too long for my liking. This man's demise could not come soon enough, I begrudge the entire season 6 for this sole reason. Timothy Olyphant Her Mr. But you know, Carrie can't move past anything ever in life so, he was a gonner after one episode.
Bradley Cooper Ahh a young Bradley Cooper. Somehow his long locks manage to look more grease-ball than rough around the edges on SATC. He's one of her many 'I'm fabulous but need the validation of a man to feel it' hook-ups. Big, not that he was complaining. Justin Theroux Part 2 What do you know, a season later Justin Theroux returns unrecognizable with a buzz cut. In yet another example of toxic masculinity, Vaughn can't communicate his 'shortcomings' leading what would've been a fabulous pairing into sad sad demise.
