And Just Like That Episode 8: “Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered”
And Just Like That Episode 8 starts with Che’s comedy set up talking about not hiding and coming out when we see a bewildered Miranda exiting the crowd when she spots her son, Brady present. Soon enough, this plays the central theme in Miranda’s story in this episode and, also in the upcoming ones. Miranda after identifying as queer has gone on to pursue her relationship with Che. However, this has only progressed with Steve being kept in the dark and, Che’s assuming that Miranda has an open marriage. But, when the beans spill, Miranda takes a dreadful step to correct her situation.
Meanwhile, Carrie’s life has just gotten noisy. Back in her old apartment, Carrie now has a downstairs neighbour- young, cheerful and, partying with friends whose actions don’t let Carrie sleep at night. Be it the thunderous laughs on the stoop or, loud music piercing the walls, Carrie too decides to speak up to correct the situation she is in. Only, it is a lot less dreadful than Miranda’s.
Another musketeer of ours too is in the quest to reframe certain things between her and Lily. When Charlotte almost is caught by Lily when she is about to blow Harry, she panics and creates a rather orthodox environment that she promised herself she would never do. To undo the mess, Charlotte goes out on a lunch date with Lily only to discover something about her daughter that puts her two steps behind.
And Just Like That Episode 8 plays with our emotions well especially when it comes to Steve and Miranda’s relationship. We have witnessed this couple go through a lot and, even face a separation (in the movie) at one point. However, when they met at the Brooklyn Bridge, fans really could take a sigh of relief. A couple that planned a life together is falling apart in the reboot and, well, not everyone is going to see that as a welcome change.
And Just Like That Episode 8: Final Thoughts
As much as Che is loved, Steve has been in our hearts and minds longer and, it would a shame to see the character go through a brutal episode. Hopefully, the next episode will put us out of Miranda’s dreamy world and, help us understand’s Steve’s reality.
