Goofs

When Charlotte decides to change the name on her front door from "MacDougall" back to "York," she cuts out a piece of paper that says "York" and pastes it on the door's name plate. However, a close look reveals that the name plate already says "York" on it, and Charlotte merely rubs her fingers over it. See more »

Quotes

Carrie: [last lines]
Carrie: [voice over] If Louis was right, and you only get one great love, New York may just be mine. And I can't have nobody talking shit about my boyfriend. A short while later, I had a thought...

Carrie: Taxi!

Carrie: Maybe the past is like an anchor holding us back. Maybe you have to let go of who you were, to become who you will be.

The Season Opener
5 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

It's 'Fleet Week' in New York City.

Carrie, Samantha and Charlotte are only just beginning to adjust to Miranda's new life with baby Brady. Samantha is finding it particularly hard to adjust to "cleaning up her act" in front of baby Brady, especially because she's still furious over Richard Wright's infidelity. Charlotte, now over Trey, is ready to find her next great love, whereas Carrie wonders if she's all out of great loves, now that Big and Aidan are gone. Carrie turns to Manhattan for romance and discovers that the only company that she can find is a fellow single woman - one who likes to mix her prescription drugs with her ice cream. She jumps at the opportunity when a sailor invites her to the Fleet Week party. At the end of the night though, she realizes that until she can let go of her past two relationships, she cannot date anymore and goes home alone.Meanwhile, Samantha is on a mission to get back at Richard. First she throws a Martini in his face and then puts posters all around his neighborhood calling him a "cheater" and "liar"! Charlotte also flirts with an officer who isn't quite a gentleman. Richard, unfazed by Samantha's poster campaign, persists in apologizing to her and declaring his love for her. Meanwhile, Miranda works on the art of breastfeeding.All of these happens in the first episode of the fifth season entitled Anchors Away.

In the first episode of the fifth season,we get to see Carrie who becomes unhappy how her relationships turned out.Truly,her relationship problems continues especially with the new man that he is currently dating.Charlotte tries to move on from her former husband by looking for another man.Also,we get to see Samantha trying to do outrageous things after getting his heart broken.Finally,we also see Miranda adjust to her new life as a mother.While the season opener may not be a classic,it manages to be entertaining and humorous especially with Samantha's storyline.
