‘And Just Like That’ Season 2, Episode 10: ‘Breaks Heal’ (Maybe)


WARNING: This story contains spoilers from this week’s episode of “And Just Like That.”

All happy families are alike, but every unhappy family is crazy in its own way.

At least that’s the lesson you’d learn from “And Just Like That” in its second season’s 10th episode, ominously titled “The Last Supper Part One: Appetizer.”

Everyone is battling with their loved ones this week, whether they’re single, in a relationship, amicably divorced, or not-so-amicably divorced. So let’s go.

Ladies First: Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) had a few banner episodes while living happily ever after with her long-lost lover Aidan Shaw (John Corbett), who left the original series as a frog but moved on is transformed into a prince somewhere along the way.

As Carrie and Aidan prepare to move into their new four-bedroom castle in Gramercy Park, the princess – who prefers Manolos to glass slippers – hosts a ‘Last Supper’ party with 15 of her closest friends to say goodbye at his beloved old apartment.

Carrie tells Aidan that she’s saving him a seat at her dinner party – even though he still won’t set foot in the place because of everything that happened between them there.

Carrie and Aidan take a walk on Coney Island.

“I made mistakes about us too,” Aidan said during a one-on-one, referencing when Carrie blamed herself for their two previous breakups.

He apologizes for all those years of insisting they get married so much that he scared Carrie away. He also admits he was afraid to go back to his apartment in case being there made him angry with Carrie again.

“It was also a mistake,” he admits.

It’s a moment of maturity and a seeming resolution to the only strain their relationship has faced so far – which means it can’t last.

Sure enough, Aidan immediately receives a phone call from his ex-wife in Virginia. Her 14-year-old son, Wyatt, broke his leg and collarbone after fighting with his mother and trying to drive – drunk – to Aidan’s farm in the middle of the night.

Carrie’s man immediately returns home and breaks down with Carrie over the phone at the end of the episode.

“I should have been there,” he sobbed.

Carrie can offer little consolation.

“Breaks heal,” she said obediently.

The first real flaw in their relationship appeared, a week before the final season. Can the city mouse and the country mouse be able to overcome this?

As the episode title promises, this is just the first lesson.

Miranda talks to her boss.
Miranda decides to stop cutting her exes from “cold turkey” and surprises Che at their stand-up in Brooklyn.

After a blissful few weeks with no Miranda-Che interaction, Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) decides it’s a good idea to surprise Che (Sara Ramirez) at their stand-up in Brooklyn. She’s thought about her tendency to cut her exes out of her life “cold turkey,” in the words of Nya Wallace (Karen Pittman), and she wants to change her ways.

But at Che’s show, Miranda goes from cold turkey to Thanksgiving turkey. Much like the unlucky bird, she learns that it’s hard to have fun at an event where you’re on the menu.

Che’s entire performance recounts how an “eight-month relationship with a married, straight, white woman” was a total disaster because the wife was a sad mess that brought a husband and son as emotional baggage.

WHO on earth could they talk?

Che talks to their boss at the vet.
Che still works for the vet but returns to stand-up this week before getting into a fight with Miranda when they make Miranda the subject of their routine.

Immediately after the performance, Miranda confronts Che, who initially appears to be apologetic – before becoming downright defensive.

“Why are you surprised?” Che asks in a somewhat breathtaking display of audacity. “I’m a stand-up comedian – that’s what I do. I get on stage and make jokes about the bad things that happen in my life.

Miranda reacts quite badly to being called a “bad thing that happened” and tells Che that they are a mess too, before storming off. However, they are both invited to Carrie’s “Last Supper”, who is well on her way to levels of dinnertime awkwardness previously unknown to the man.

Nya and Miranda talk about their exes.
Nya decides to buy an expensive stroller for her ex-husband’s new baby, even though she’s still furious that he’s cheating on her.

Nya, meanwhile, takes out her anger at her ex in a very different way: by buying a thousand-dollar stroller.

After being too diplomatic about the baby André Rashad (LeRoy McClain) is expecting with his new wife, Nya decides revenge is a dish best served with her American Express. Now, every time they use the new stroller, they’ll think of Professor Wallace’s full wallet.

Anthony Marantino (Mario Cantone) also met an ex-husband this week when Carrie relays news of Stanford Blatch (played by the late actor Willie Garson). Over a moving Cosmopolitan toast, Anthony and Carrie wish Stanford well in his new life as a monk in Japan.

Carrie and Anthony toast Standford.
Carrie and Anthony toast Stanford Blanche in a moving tribute to the late Willie Garson, who passed away in 2021.

Carrie reads aloud Stanford’s letter to Anthony, which details that he renounces earthly attachments and gives all of his possessions to her ex-husband.

“I dropped everything, lovingly,” Stanford writes.

Seema Patel (Sarita Choudhury) is in this episode for 90 seconds, but that’s enough time for her to freak out about saying “I love you” to Ravi Gordi (Armin Amiri). After “30 years of intelligent dating”, Seema is still afraid of three little words.

Across town, Lisa Todd Wexley (Nicole Ari Parker) grapples with her surprise pregnancy. She worries what this could mean for her career, which skyrockets after PBS expressed interest in making a 10-part series based on her documentary.

She decides to keep the baby anyway, but at the end of the episode, Lisa realizes that she is bleeding. She and Herbert (Chris Jackson) rush to the hospital, but it seems like it’s too late.

Seema struts around Carrie's apartment.
When she tells her boyfriend she loves him, the indomitable Seema Patel faces her greatest fear: emotional intimacy.

Charlotte and Lisa are going to brunch with friends.
Lisa Todd Wexley struggles with her surprise pregnancy before realizing she may have had a miscarriage at the end of the episode.

Last, but certainly not least, is Charlotte (Kristin Davis), who loves her gallery work. After selling a painting to superstar Sam Smith, playing themselves, Char’s co-workers insist on taking him out for a drink – their tradition when someone sells a painting for over $100,000.

But Charlotte realizes she wants to strangle her children and her husband when their insistent text messages keep asking when she’ll be home.

It’s enough to make a girl want to throw her phone in a pitcher of margaritas – she does.

Stumbling home, Charlotte confronts her family about how they still expect her to be there.

“I’m killing in my new job,” she says emphatically to Harry (Evan Handler), Rock (Alexa Swinton) and Lily (Cathy Ang). “I am more than your wife and your mother. You must get it and collect it!”
