The girls worry about long-term change. Miranda hears from her gynecologist that one of her ovaries is 'lazy', and worries therefore is she can still take her time being picky with men before going for motherhood. Charlotte hits on well with charming pastry chef Stephan, but consults the girls and guy friend Stanford if he is gay, or at least 'half'. Carrie worries if Big is serious about them since he seems too 'territorial' to allow any of her stuff permanently in his apartment. When Samantha sees publisher Dominic, the one man who broke her heart for a model, she decides to turn tables on him, but can she really dump him 'like a man' after great sex? Written by KGF Vissers

Could Have Been Better
3 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Carrie thinks her relationship with Big has evolved enough to the place where she can leave stuff at his place. She purposely leaves a few items on his bathroom, only to be surprised by Big the next morning with a bag with all her items in it. Carrie is confused and tries to discuss it with him, but realizes she doesn't have to leave her marks on his place to know they're in a relationship. Meanwhile, Miranda feels her biological clock ticking when her gynecologist tells her one of her ovaries has stopped production. She starts taking hormones and going out on dates with guys she'd never go – like her co-worker with the hair plugs – but a discussion about freezing eggs leads her to realize she's only 33 and still has one ovary working. Samantha has the chance of getting back to the one guy who broke her heart, but can't resist the temptation of jumping to bed with him. Her vengeance plan goes down the drain when he dumps her and she realizes she hasn't evolved past having feelings quite yet. And Charlotte finds a piece of the male evolution of her own: a man who could be either a gay straight or a straight gay. The difference? The gay straight is nothing but the product of overexposure to the high life in Manhattan, but is still straight. Confused, she decides to go forward with the guy, but realizes her male side isn't as evolved as Stephan's female side.

This episode tries to see a person's masculine and feminine side.Although it wasn't tackled deeply as I would have wanted it to be,it was still satisfying and entertaining.Miranda's storyline could have been tackled better had her wish of having a family and children better explored.It was just too bad that it only scratched the surface about having her biological clock soon getting expired when it only considered dating and nothing more.I know that many women sometimes would get into a relationship and even have children or worse even get married for the wrong reasons especially when they know that their biological clock will be up soon.
