- Sex and the City -The 'Sex And The City' Reboot Script Leaked & It Doesn't Look Good For Team Big
Someone over at HBO is in big trouble. A page from the new Sex And The City reboot script leaked and now fans are convinced they know what happens with Carrie and Big in And Just Like That. (And, no, he's not dead... yet.)
The page, first published by Page Six on July 15, features a brunch scene between Carrie, Stanford, Miranda, and Charlotte. But that's not the interesting part. The true intrigue is what the dialogue suggests about Carrie and her marriage to Big: "I was taping the podcast, I was washing my hair. Yes, I wasn't eating or sleeping, but at least I felt good about my marriage. Now I'm just one of the wives he was taking care of?," she says. These do not sound like the words of a woman who is happily married. In fact, given the comparison to Big's other wives (he was married twice before Carrie), it sounds like these two might be in the midst of a big divorce.
Don't believe me? The leaked script also contains a piece of scrapped dialogue from a "Norman" who appears to be a lawyer talking on his phone in front of Carrie. "In my experience, when people have unfinished business, they tend to throw money at it," he says. It sounds like Carrie is Big's "unfinished business" in this scenario.
But, Olivia, you say, that could just mean they've hit a rut — "lost the sparkle" as Carrie would say — and she's paranoid about Big paying for their extravagant lifestyle. Yes, but if that was the case, explain why Big's second ex-wife, Natasha, played by Bridget Moynahan, was spotted on the And Just Like That set.
Though her presence undoubtedly suggests that Carrie and Big are in trouble, the diamond on Natasha's left ring finger suggests that she's not stopping by to take Big back. Maybe she and Carrie are starting an ex-wives club, or she'll be called in to testify in their divorce hearings. Or maybe she just shows up looking fab and gives Carrie the strength she needs to move on from Big.
The other exciting takeaway from this leaked script is that Stanford has a prime spot at group brunch. (Well, not literally. Per the script, he's sitting in front of the kitchen door and his chair keeps getting hit as waiters move in and out.) Stanford has long deserved to sit at the table with the ladies, get drunk, and complain about the straight, white patriarchy. He's no Samantha, but we'll take what we can get.
