The series finale of SATC does not fail to satisfy dedicated viewers who get a perfect wrap-up with their favorite New York City women. Series finales are almost always met with disappointment by fans because everyone has their own perfect idea of a perfect ending to a nearly perfect show. An American Girl In Paris is as good of a finale as you can get because it hits on all of the series’ best themes (yet does so in Paris)!
Plus, this is the episode where after a DECADE of yearning, Big finally tells Carrie with complete certainty that she’s the one! (He is, of course, referring to the dramatic moment when she asks him if she’s “the one” back at the way beginning of the series). Also, Big references that Miranda, Charlotte, and Samantha are the true loves of Carrie’s life, which makes our hearts fill up with all of the feelings.
This episode is revolutionary for television because, for the first time, we are given a female character on TV who makes the decision not to have children. She just doesn’t know if she has the time to take care of a kid being the career-driven woman that she is, despite Charlotte’s insistence that Carrie will one day have a bunch of little rugrats running around, perhaps with her same wild curls and “sense of humor” (if you could call it that).
In a way, this episode helps a lot of women realize they have a choice as to whether or not they even want to have children. This is one of the many reasons why Sex and the City is so unique and memorable because it never ends up the way you’d expect it to.
5 DON’T ASK, DON’T TELL
In this episode, Charlotte hesitantly marries Trey despite the fact that he can’t “get it up” due to his Madonna complex with her. Their ple of the idea that “everything is not what it seems.” While they are seemingly perfect on the outside, their marriage is dry and miserable behind closed doors.
Meanwhile, Carrie confesses the truth about her affair with Big to Aidan, who is so visibly hurt that it makes us tear up a little. You can also tell how remorseful Carrie is when she cries and it is clear that although she seems to still love Big, she also truly loves Aidan.
4 THE BIG JOURNEY
While this episode features the hilarious adventures of Carrie and Samantha as they go on a never-ending train ride to Napa, the best part of this episode comes from Harry Goldenblatt and Charlotte York as their romance comes into full bloom. Harry successfully seduces Charlotte with his classic line “What does it take?” as Low-Fidelity Allstars’ “Somebody Needs You” booms on the loudspeakers.
He goes on to tell Charlotte everything she’s ever wanted to hear from a man, yet she is conflicted over the fact that she doesn’t find him to be conventionally attractive. After he moves her with his words, though, all walls are broken down and she wastes no time to go all in with Harry. It’s easily the most romantic scene in the entire series, which is saying something, considering this show is all about love and relationships.
3 TWENTY-SOMETHING GIRLS VS THIRTY-SOMETHING WOMEN
