Samantha Finally Ends Her Relationship
5 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For Charlotte's 36th birthday, Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte go with Samantha to Atlantic City on Richard's jet. The entire trip, Charlotte worries she'll become an old maid, Miranda only wants to catch up on sleep, and Samantha is pre-occupied keeping an eye on Richard. Meanwhile, Carrie realizes that she has to gamble in life and not continue to hide.

Just like the second episode,there nothing much happening in this particular episode.The only thing that is worth mentioning is Samantha finally dumps Richard no matter how heartbreaking it maybe.She obviously can no longer accept the fact that her man will never be loyal to her.She is definitely an admirable woman.That takes strength considering how much she loves him.She even gave him another chance but to no avail.In the end,she used her brains over her heart.
