Carrie, Charlotte and Miranda are back in the trailer for the Sex and the City reboot And Just Like That …
Fans have no doubt followed the series’ star stories on social media Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon for pieces of info on what will happen at the reboot.
But the trailer has offered several chunks to pick up.
Here is what we know / wonder.
The boys are back in town
Chris Noth will repeat its role as Mr Big, David Eigenberg is left as Steve Brady and Even Acting returns as Harry Goldenblatt.
We already knew that.
But the new scenes give us a brief insight into how their relationship is going.
We see a couple of scenes with Mr. Big and Carrie, who all look loved in their super luxury apartment with walk-in closet in living room size.
But if you look really closely, you will notice a few scenes where Carrie is wearing a wedding ring and a few scenes where she is not.
This could mean nothing. But the Sex and the City geeks all know the importance of Carrie’s attire – the woman sometimes makes crazy fashion choices, but they are conscious choices.
She did a great thing by not wearing her engagement ring on her finger back in Aiden days and we all remember how it was …
Does Miranda come out as queer?
It’s a massive fantasy theory floating around in the moment, given Nixon identifies as queer and has been married to a woman since 2012.
And the involvement of Sara ramirez, a bisexual actress you might recognize from her stay as Dr. Callie Torres and Grey’s Anatomy, lit that fire.
Steve, however, seems to be still very much in the picture, and after more careful espionage on Miranda’s left hand, it appears that she is still married in at least some of the show.
But there is a lot of talk about “new chapters”, and a lot can happen in 10 episodes, so do not believe.
Carrie cooking now?
Fight if that’s true.
Mr. Big says, “I remember when you had your sweaters in the stove,” suggesting Carrie doesn’t do it anymore.
Of course, this may be due to the fact that having a wardrobe the size of a shipping container took care of that storage problem, but it can be a sign of massive personal growth.
I mean, being able to throw a decent pasta together may not be a big deal for most people, but this is a woman who said that cheese fondue – yes, melted cheese and with cracked pieces of bread – was the only recipe she ever could master … and it was awful.
And she’s more open about sex?
Sex and the City was referred to as a sex column, but it was more about romantic relationships, friendships, dating politics and – for once – sock drawers.
One of the major criticisms of the show (of which there were many) was that Carrie’s column was a bit delicate, heteronormative and narrow-minded.
Remember that episode with Alanis Morissette – Yes! it was her! – where Carrie just could not get her head around bisexuality?
Well, the trailer sees her being asked about masturbation in a show called X, Y and Me, suggesting that she might be a little less careful and less conservative.
But her response, referring to the death of department store Barney, suggests that she’s still the same old Carrie, even though she’s a little more awake.
But she’s still wearing tutus
It’s not an exact replica of the iconic tutu from Sex and the City’s opening lyrics or the green tutu she ran around Paris at the end of the last paragraph.
But it’s a nod to tulle I want to cling to.
Carrie name tag necklace is also back
We all know the significance of this necklace from the last episodes of Sex and the City – losing it was a metaphor for her losing her self-esteem while driving around Paris with Alexander Petrovsky.
The trailer shows a scene with Carrie wearing the necklace as she looks in the bathroom mirror with abandoned determination as we hear Ramirez ‘character say, “If you’re not happy with who you are, get out of that box and change.” .
As there is a pondering of Carrie saying “after all the years and all the changes, you are still you”, it smells as if someone will question their identity.
And look, I do not want to predict another big break, but it seems that the scene is recorded in the bathroom of her old apartment, not “heaven on the fifth” (Carrie and Bigs apartment).
I’m just saying it makes you think.
