I’m just glad Sebastian didn’t let Carrie’s freak out ruin their relationship.
This show has been pretty exciting so far, but this episode was a little blah. For story wise Carrie had to get back to Interview magazine somehow and the aftermath of Maggie and Walt breaking up had to play out. There may even be a new love interest for Mouse, or at least some healthy competition. This episode definitely set things up for the rest of the season, but it was a little dull.
Reasons I think it might have been a little dull:
1. Not enough of Larisa: We had a little of her, but it was a serious side of her. I like crazy Larissa.
2. There was no Maggie: I really like Maggie’s character. She has an interesting story, whether it’s her cheating on Walt with the police officer or standing up to Donna and her minions, she just makes things more interesting.
3. There wasn’t enough Manhattan: Sure Sebastian and Carrie had to go find Dorrit, but she has run away before.
4. Mouse battling over a cube: It was much more interesting and hilarious when she was asking for extra credit over a B and then trying to break into the teacher’s office to hand in the extra credit late. This episode may have set up some funny things for the future with the jock, but this one was a little tame.
Next week’s episode looks to be more of what we’ve gotten from the first eight episodes. Could Carrie be losing her virginity? Check out this preview and make your predictions:
