*Warning: This article contains spoilers from And Just Like That, episode 9.
And Just Like That aired its penultimate episode today and naturally the Miranda Hobbes haters have rallied together once again, but now, out of nowhere, the fandom is totally shipping Carrie Bradshaw and Steve Brady.
Could it happen?
Absolutely not but we can all agree Steve deserves better after Miranda slapped him with a divorce because she wants to explore her sexuality with Carrie’s boss.
After petulantly declaring she was ‘living in a rom-com’ last week, Miranda dashed to Brooklyn to be with Che Diaz, only to get some home-truths from the podcast host.
Actually, they’re not dating, ‘they’re getting to know each other’. Regardless, Miranda was on cloud nine and still nothing like the Miranda Hobbes we all know and love.
Later, back in Manhattan, everyone was reunited to help paint a women’s shelter including Steve and Miranda, which weirdly wasn’t uncomfortable at all.
They did, however, choose to split up with Steve joining Carrie to paint the bathrooms where somehow she dropped her wedding ring from Mr Big down the sink.
Thankfully, Steve was there to save the day and after a heart-to-heart about his future he insisted his own wedding ring was going to stay on his finger for good.
The tender scene had fans talking, as they began to wonder: could Steve and Carrie actually be a thing?
And Just Like That writers defended how they approached Steve for the Sex and The City reboot after many critics have agreed they’ve done him dirty.
‘Everyone on the show, every single person, loves David Eigenberg as a human being,’ Elisa Zuritsky explained to Vanity Fair.
‘We love him as an actor. We love Steve. We are really invested in the Steve-ness of him. He’s so full of life, and the Steves out there are good guys.’
Elisa suggested criticism of Miranda’s affair may be reflective of ‘a lopsided gender issue’, where viewers ‘feel angry at her and more protective of him.’
‘But Miranda’s journey is representing another reality out there, which a lot of people go through — the reevaluations and transitions in life,’ she shared.
‘Grown couples grow apart, and people come to epiphanies about what their spouse is or isn’t fulfilling for them. Miranda’s story was very representative of a certain path that a lot of women find themselves on.’
