‘And Then There Was That’ Miranda Makes a Decision Regarding Her Marriage To Steve (Recap).
During the January 20 episode of ‘And Just Like That,’ Miranda decides to take a chance on her relationship with Che, while Charlotte tries to diffuse an awkward situation with Lily.
Miranda attends an LGBTQIA+ gathering to see Che speak and finds Brady and Luisa in the audience. Miranda strives to stay hidden at all costs and flees the scene. Miranda is seen exiting the gathering in a suspicious manner, which Che notices.
Miranda reappears later and brings Che an iced coffee. Che had been under the impression that Miranda was in an open marriage the entire time. Miranda clarifies that this isn’t necessarily the case right now. «If you’re not available, why did you put yourself out there?» Che enquires.
Charlotte & Harry Get Caught
Miranda claims that everything happened «so quickly» and that the situation is confusing. Che is forthright about a lot of things, but they never cheat, lie, or sneak around. Che is putting an end to their relationship until Miranda finds out what she wants to do with her life.
Seema pays a visit to Carrie’s house to provide some meals. Carrie has been going through her entire wardrobe since she was a child. Lily has been assisting her in organizing everything. Carrie pulls out the Versace gown she wore in Paris at one point. Carrie’s young neighbor and her friends throw a party on the front steps that night. Carrie is perplexed as to how her next-door neighbor is able to finance her apartment at such a young age. Carrie ultimately snaps when they keep her awake. Nothing, however, changes.
Harry is persuaded by Charlotte to wear an aura ring to keep track of his health. Charlotte agrees to offer Harry her head as part of the deal. Lily appears out of nowhere, and Charlotte slams the door in her face so she doesn’t see. Charlotte claims she was inspecting Harry’s penis for cancer as an explanation.
At dinner, Charlotte deconstructs Miranda and Carrie’s difficult position. Miranda is taken aback by Charlotte’s continued blowing of Harry after all these years. Charlotte is torn between wanting to normalize sex for her girls and ensuring that they are not ashamed of it.
Miranda Asks Che About Their Future
Miranda is ready to inform Steve that she wants to divorce him, but she won’t tell him about Che. Miranda informs Carrie that she believes she would have arrived at this moment regardless of Che’s presence. She wants to be with Che, but she isn’t interested in marrying Steve. Carrie, on the other hand, makes Miranda wonder if this is really what Che wants.
Miranda asks Che straight out if they’re serious about dating. She tells Miranda, «I’m in love with you.» Che, on the other hand, claims that they won’t be able to give Miranda «anything traditional.» Miranda is adamantly opposed to this. «All I want is you… and myself.» Miranda says, «You and me,» before vowing to handle the matter.
Charlotte discovers Lily’s private Instagram account while trying to talk about the restroom scenario from earlier. Lily gets up and walks away as Charlotte approaches her. Carrie is able to calm Charlotte down after Lily visits her. Charlotte subsequently clarifies to Lily that she is not embarrassing her in any way. Charlotte thinks now is a good moment to bring up the restroom incident. Lily, it turns out, believed Charlotte’s cancer narrative.
Miranda Asks Steve For A Divorce
Miranda takes a seat to inform Steve about the situation. Miranda informs him, «I’m not happy.» «I’m sorry, but I’m no longer capable of doing this.» She claims that this existence is no longer sufficient for her. Miranda wants «more,» while Steve is content with what they have. «This is actually happening,» Miranda says when Steve asks whether she’s seeking a divorce. Really.”
Steve is eventually given the opportunity to speak. He starts by saying, «Miranda, you and I have been together for a long time, and it’s always been like this.» «You don’t think I’m enough, then you think I’m kind of enough, and then you don’t think I’m enough again.» And I’m always there for us, you know, just hanging in there. And then, in the last few years, we’ve finally arrived at a point where it’s not so goddamn f**king up and down every day, where it’s more or less the same…» That, he claims, is married life. Miranda no longer believes this is the life she desires.
«Well, I assume this is all about you because I’m content with my current situation.» Actually, I’m fine with it. However, if you aren’t, you aren’t. I’m too old to rally behind us once more. «I don’t want to,» Steve expresses his displeasure. He only wants her to be content. «However, I’m not sure what else you believe is out there,» he says. Miranda then tells Steve that she’s met someone, and Steve is devastated.
Miranda calls Carrie later from a cab, and she’s relieved. She’s on her way to Cleveland to inform Che that she wants to be with them. Let’s hope Miranda gets what she wants out of this…
