End Of Carrie-Aidan Relationship
5 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Aidan moves out and leaves Carrie the option of either buying back her apartment for what he paid for it or selling it off but she doesn't have enough money for a loan so she goes to see Mr. Big who writes her a check but she finally decides that she wants to do it on her own so she tears up the check. Charlotte ends up giving her her wedding ring so that Carrie can use it as collateral to get her loan.Samantha discovers that Richard isn't the one that's shopping for all the presents that he buys her and that he isn't even signing the cards but his assistant is the one who does it so she gets his assistant to sign the most recent card "Love Richard" to trick him into saying I love you. Miranda and Steve discuss custody of their soon to be child.

In this episode,we get to see the development of the Carrie-Aidan relationship.We see how it ends and how Mr.Big once again enters the picture after writing her a check for what Aidan paid for it.Also,we get to see how Charlotte diminishes her previous marriage as she uses her wedding ring to Carrie to be used as a collateral.In the Richard- Samantha relationship,we soon find out the truth and Samantha realizes how much it hurts when one she loves doesn't love her back.Finally,we get to see Steve and Miranda discuss about the future of their child.Overall,we get to see how much changes the all four women are undergoing and the character development that is happening in the story.
