The snow continues to fall. The first time that winter, Carrie VOs. "The city was silent. There were no more questions. Only white noise." Alek reads the Daily News about Lexi's horrible death, and Carrie turns to him and says, "I want to go to Paris." He smiles, and I tear up a little. Wow. She made a decision. She took a risk. Go, Carrie.
Miranda and Steve make snow angels in their backyard. Brady lies on Mir's chest. He laughs his baby laugh. It's so fucking adorable.
Char scoops the puppies out of their box. Lining it is the New York Post, with the headline, "SPLAT!" Go, New York Post, GO! Now that I'm a full-time tabloid reporter, I have to say, I covet the Post. I worship the Post. It's just the queen bee of tabloid journalism. Let me give you an example. My favorite recent Post headline? It was about the Britney marriage scandal: "SPLITNEY!" I mean, come on. Perfection. Beauty. Trashy and funny. It's what I aspire to.
Church bells ding. It's Lexi's funeral. Carrie walks with Stanford on her arm. Stanford can't believe the tale: "She tripped on her Manolos?" Carrie says it's sad, she died, the end. He says it is sad that he missed the scandal of the social season. "I need details. I need last words." Carrie intones, "'I'm so bored, I could die.'" Stanford stifles a giggle. They see Sam, who says the funeral is "better than Fashion Week!" Stanny gushes that Marcus us saving seats next to Hugh Jackman. He runs inside. The four girlfriends hang around outside. Carrie says, "It's the end of an era. The party is officially over." Well, for you old coots, anyway. There's always someone else at the party doing coke and smoking. They're just half your age. Carrie sees Enid and Wallace walk into the church arm-in-arm. They nod at each other, and Carrie says, "If you're single in New York after a certain point, there is no where to go but down." Mir says, "Eighteen stories down." Carrie pauses, then says she's going to Paris. Char and Sam offer happy congratulations, but Mir's face darkens as she says, "Because you're afraid of going out a window?" Wow. Mir is taking this rather badly. ["Woman's got a point, though." -- Sars] Carrie says she wants to open a new one. Wow! Now, I like this Carrie. She's going for something other than shoes or a man that doesn't want her (meaning Big). Mir has more questions. What about her job? Carrie quit. Mir opens her mouth, and Carrie cuts her off. "We're done with the question portion of our program. I'm going. I'm happy. Now let's say goodbye to Lexi." The four friends go inside.
