Plus, Carrie gets in Samantha Jones’ face — yes, we finally meet the one and only Samantha, and she’s quite the shock for Walt and Carrie.

While Walt (Brendan Dooling) and Carrie (AnnaSophia Robb) were planning an exciting night out in the big city on the Oct. 25 episode of The Carrie Diaries, their plans get turned completely around when an unexpected guest shows up.

After the devastating ending to season one, it’s so nice to see Carrie back to her bubbly self in the premiere. She and Walt had an amazing summer together, and she’s worked hard to put Sebastian (Austin Butler) and Maggie (Katie Findlay)’s hookup in the back of her mind.

So they decided on a night out and about with Donna (Chloe Bridges)– yes they’re all magically friends now — but when she showed up at the door with Sebastian, Carrie immediately decided she wasn’t up for that,
