‘And Just Like That…’ Season 2: Episode 8 Recap

Whew, I liked this whole storyline. As shortly as I observed that seem on Seema’s confront about Carrie-Aidan Component III, I was like oohhh snap, what’s going on right here? I had totally neglected about the property in the Hamptons that they were heading to share. I would have reacted just like Seema to begin with — when she hid from Carrie at the sink, I was like, wow, me. I would have tried out to prevent confrontation at all expenditures. I’m not sure I ever would have had the guts to ultimately say, seem, I’m not sensation even the probable of being uncomfortable on the getaway. But whew, it felt so great to see Seema discuss her thoughts. Think about becoming third wheel on the getaway you prepared? — Erin

I’ll share your Hamptons property with you, Seema! Seema is a hero for owning this discussion. In point, it is a discussion I want I experienced the courage to have with some of my very own buddies. I say this each and every 7 days, but I have genuinely appreciated the show’s exploration, by way of Seema, of how it can be demanding and from time to time lonely to be a proudly single lady surrounded by married friends or pals in serious, very long-phrase associations. Culture does not actually give us single gals a blueprint on how to manage these conversations or assume about where we match in. This trade with Carrie ongoing to solidify why Seema has been conveniently my most loved character on this revival series.

I was so crushed for Seema! And Carrie handled it so inadequately in the instant, in regular Carrie manner, obtaining so defensive about it. I actually sympathized with Seema when she said that compared with Carrie, she might hardly ever have any terrific loves in her everyday living, but “I can live with that.” And when she said of remaining a third wheel: “I really do not want to shell out a fortune possessing this sensation.” All over again, these are feelings I desire I understood how to articulate. — Marina

I not too long ago backed out of a team trip (albeit one particular with far a lot less glamorous specifics) on which I would’ve been the only person not coupled up to stay clear of experience like a 3rd wheel, so I really felt for Seema in this episode. There are times in your life when it’s genuinely tough to set on a happy confront for others, and I’m happy she was so trustworthy and upfront with Carrie about it. It’s a testament to Sarita Choudhury’s expertise that she was in a position to convey Seema’s vary of clashing emotions primary up to the confrontation via her functionality, also. Looking at her occur all-around to meal in assistance of Carrie by the conclude of the episode — and looking amazing as constantly — felt legitimate to this kind of conflict, and spoke volumes about how much she values Carrie’s friendship. I marvel if we’ll get to see if just about anything transpire concerning Seema and her handsome new shopper, also. – Curtis
