Samantha supervises Anthony at the preparations for Carrie's book presentation party. At her publishers, she meets another author, Jack Berger; they hit it off and have a lovely day. However, only when she invites him to the book party does he decline because he reveals that his girlfriend's family is visiting then. Miranda tells her hot lover Walker Lewis about her baby at the party, then they have sex, but Bradys crying sets him running. Charlotte is finally ready for a real relationship again, and has another perfect suitor: Justin Anderson III. However, when they wake up in bed, Bunny enters the room pointing out that the apartment is hers, and Justin runs when he learns she's separated. Samantha insists Carrie has the same treatments as her; a manicure, pedicure and botox. But Sam takes chemical peeling first - which practically burns off her skin, utterly unsightly. At a restaurant Carrie can't get out of allowing her former Vogue-publisher Enid Mead to share her table. Samantha... Written by KGF Vissers

Being A Single Mother
6 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Carrie gets ready for her book release party but has a hard time finding a 'plus one' to accompany her to the party. Samantha gets ready for the party by having a chemical peel, which turns out disastrous. Charlotte finds the perfect 'plus one' but when Bunny ruins her plans. Meanwhile, Miranda has to adjust to dating now that she's a single mother.All of these events happen in Plus One Is the Loneliest Number.

Is this another filler episode?Nothing much happens once again.The only thing worth mentioning is Miranda's adjustment into becoming a single mother.While the other women are just living out their lives with no major events happening.
