The glamorous Seema is Carrie’s realtor. Seema appreciates how Big designed the apartment, but she tells Carrie “everything has to go.” Seema doesn’t mince words whatsoever. Seema mentions putting a Peloton in the bathroom, and the mood goes in a very uncomfortable direction.

Nya Makes A Confession

She loves her life the way it is, but feels “afraid if I don’t have a child I’m going to regret it one day.”
Miranda tells Nya that having a child doesn’t take the regret away. There’s “always going to be these roads not taken.” This leads Nya to think that you can’t have it all. “You can. It’s just really f**king hard,” Miranda says.
LTW invites Charlotte and Harry over for a last-minute get-together. When Charlotte and Harry show up, they realize they’re the only white couple. Charlotte really steps up for LTW at dinner. Charlotte raves over LTW’s art pieces and impresses LTW’s mother-in-law.

Stanford Leaves Suddenly
When she comes back to her place later on, she finds a note from Stanford. He’s gone to Japan to follow one of his clients, a TikTok star. Anthony stops by later and drops a bombshell on Carrie. Stanford wants a divorce!
The next day, Carrie goes to see Seema after the open house is over. Seema says the move went well, but one of Carrie’s picture frames is broken. It’s a picture of Carrie and Big. Carrie freaks out. Even though Seema offers to replace the glass, Carrie snaps, “The glass is not replaceable.”
Carrie continues to get extremely upset. “He’s gone. It’s broken, and no one can fix it,” she says. Seema apologizes for seeming insensitive towards Carrie, but she also calls out Carrie for being insensitive at lunch the other day when Carrie made a comment about Seema “still” putting herself out there.
“Maybe you have a point, Carrie. Maybe there’s a part of me that doesn’t feel sorry for you ’cause at least you found the love of your life and you had him for many wonderful years. And in my eyes, that is something worth still putting yourself out there for,” Seema tells Carrie. That honesty is the start of a beautiful friendship between Carrie and Seema.
