Created by Darren Star, this is the revival of the iconic series Sex and the City based on the bestselling book by Candance Bushnell of the same name. It stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis reprising in their previous roles as Carrie Bradshaw, Miranda Hobbes and Charlotte York Goldenblatt, respectively with the twist of being in their 50s and trying to fit into the modern world.

And Just Like That Episode 3: ‘When in Rome…’

After the death of Chris Noth’s Big aka John James Preston in the first two pilot episodes of And Just Like That, fans were left heartbroken and devasted. Especially, after seeing that Kim Cattrall did not return to play Samantha Jones in this HBO revival series, Big’s death marks the exit of another major character. And, we can vouch for the death given the second episode titled ‘Little Black Dress’ did not leave us with any time to contemplate on conspiracy theories and dash right into Big’s sombre and emotional funeral.

Carrie’s grief over Big’s death is not overpowering, but subtle in its own way. As she tries to recover, she is confronted with a more important question: Did she really know Big at all? A question that is triggered and inflamed when Carrie finds out Big has left a large chunk of money to his ex-wife, Natasha. In light of this recent development, Carrie’s grief drives her into a state of mania.

On the other hand, Charlotte and Miranda’s life carefully thread on the string of gender identity and sexuality. Charlotte’s younger daughter, Rose tells her how she never ‘feels like a girl’, which initially met with a very medieval response (as it is with parents usually), she understands later how she can be confused and still show Rose love and support as she tries to discover herself. Meanwhile, Miranda’s stressful student life spiced with an emerging drinking problem and sexless marriage, makes her take a rather spontaneous step.

The highlight of this episode is a comedy special ‘Check The Box’ by Sara Ramirez’s Che delivered at the end which serves as a need epiphany for our main trio to realize the changes they need to make, go through and accept in their individual lives. And Just Like That Episode 3 ends on a rather philosophical note in comparison to the sad melody of the previous two.

And Just Like That Episode 3: Final Thoughts

Reviving the old characters in this new world would never be easy and it shows. There are some ‘modern mistakes’ that the characters make but, maybe, that is just a nuanced way of showing how difficult it is being in your 50s in a world you can no longer recognize from your 30s, right? There is hope in this show to evolve into something better, and streaming episode three will let you exactly why.

You can watch And Just Like That Episode 3 now on HBO Max. The episodes are going to get a weekly release- Thursdays, 3 am ET. To read the review about the previous episodes of And Just Like That, click here.
