Watch And Just Like That Season 1 Episode 5 “Tragically Hip”
Previously on And Just Like That Season 1 Episode 4, looking to move forward, Carrie meets with self-made real estate broker Seema Patel. Meanwhile, Charlotte plans a high-stakes dinner party for LTW as Miranda and Nya connect over the frank realities of motherhood.
Warning… Spoilers below!
On And Just Like That Season 1 Episode 5, Carrie showed Seema her place and used her umbrella as a cane just to get up the stairs. Seema ragged her and wanted to know what her orthopedist said about her condition. Since she didn’t have one, Seema called her cousin to see Carrie today.
Old Lady’s Disease
When they visited the doctor, Carrie Googled a prognosis and thought it was arthritis. He contradicted her web medical advice and told her it was an undiagnosed birth defect in her hip. Surgery would fix her up just right.
While at lunch with Miranda, Charlotte, and Anthony- Carrie was thrilled it wasn’t “old lady’s disease.” Charlotte prepped an Excel spreadsheet for them to take turns helping her recover. The hardest part of the deal for Carrie was that she couldn’t wear heels.
Let It All Out
Charlotte was the last to find out Rose changed her name at school to Rock. When she asked about it, Rock told her she did it in a Tik Tok. Charlotte and Harry pondered whether she was being influenced by her friend who also changed her change. The teen said she feels like Rock.
Miranda joined Carrie at the hospital and shared her disgust that Charlotte sent her a book about alcoholism called, “Quit Like A Woman.” She resented the statement about her drinking. Yet, ditched Carrie for a mid-day taste.
After Carrie’s surgery, Charlotte and Miranda waited for Carrie to wake. When she did, she had to pee badly. While Charlotte helped her to the bathroom, Che called and Miranda picked up, happily reminding her it was “Mirambo.” She was bringing food and Carrie didn’t want more visitors. So Miranda went to intercept her and ate the food with her in the cafeteria.
While they dined, Che opened up about how trapped she felt as a straight woman. Now, she just lets everything out and it’s better for her health. Miranda shared how, she too, felt trapped at her law firm…
Charlotte and Harry met with their child’s teacher and were baffled why they weren’t informed of the name change. The teachers were extremely politically correct about the issue- even suggesting therapy and correcting the usage of the kid’s name. The parents felt this was a phase and their 12-year-old child was still discovering life. They pondered whether they had to accept the new paradigm.
Anthony transported Carrie to her pad in style, having one of his hunky Hot Fellas pick her up and deliver her to her bedroom. Later on, while high on meds, she had enough strength to come on Che’s podcast, even telling her vagina story. Charlotte advised she should have given Samantha some head-ups since she name-dropped her.
Miranda was attending Carrie while she slept and Che popped up. Miranda tried to perk her look but was in comfy clothing. Che was dropping off a mic and aged tequila to grease Carrie for the podcast. Since she was already out from meds, the two drank, cackled so loud, and fired up a blunt.
Miranda asked her to shotgun her again. Afterward, Che started to kiss her neck and Carrie woke from smelling the smell of weed. Carrie heard sex sounds and a mirror in her room gave her a view of Che feeling Miranda up.
Carrie had to urinate badly and didn’t want to disturb the two yelling in the next room so she peed in a juice bottle but spilled it in her bed. Miranda had an orgasm and told Che that was the best feeling in her life. Che had to bail though.
Miranda confronted her best friend for having sex with her boss and spilling her pee. Carrie asked her what was she doing and perhaps Charlotte was right about her drinking problem. Miranda confessed that she wasn’t happy in her marriage and she needed more from life. She felt she had a handle on drinking and could stop but wanted to explore her sexuality more…
Back In Red Bottoms
Carrie took Charlotte’s advice and told Samantha about the podcast mention and she was cool with it. When she sent another “I miss you” text, Samantha lit up the bubbles and stopped texting.
Miranda was prepping a cocktail while listening to Che’s hilarious podcast and a notification from Amazon came through asking if she was enjoying her new book. She realized she drunk ordered the book herself and poured the bottles of liquor down the drain.
Charlotte joined Carrie at the physical therapists’ office. They spoke on Rose/Rock and Carrie consoled her friend. Suddenly, a young hunk, Travis, appeared to assist Carrie… she was twinkle-eyed for him. After the session, Carrie only wanted to see Travis but her insurance couldn’t afford him. Looking at her alternative, she was willing to pay out of pocket for the therapist.
Carrie’s goal was to get back in heels. And just like that… three months later, she was back strutting in Christian Louboutins…
