All About Karma
4 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Charlotte, who continues to feel frustrated about not having sex with Trey, starts a fling with the McDougal's gardener but is caught, leading to Trey and Charlotte to become separated. Carrie gets mugged after being snubbed by Natasha at a restaurant. Samantha makes Carrie go with her to a party, which turns out to be a dorm party. Miranda dates the detective investigating Carrie's mugging.All happens in What Goes Around Comes Around.

This episode is all about karma.No question about it. Charlotte has only been married to Trey for two months and the lack of sex has driven her to making out with the MacDougal family gardener.She gets caught which lead her and her husband to separate. Carrie gets snubbed by Natasha, which she fully deserves after her affair with Big, and then gets mugged. Miranda dates the cop investigating Carrie's mugging, but gets way to drunk so he thinks she's a lush.Obviously,she probably should have treated Steve better. Samantha sleeps with a virgin college student who becomes obsessed with her.Unfortunately,she falls in love with him.Will her sexual relationship up to her expectations? Overall,it is not really a classic episode but definitely entertaining.
