After mourning Big for the first six episodes of And Just Like That..., Carrie is forced to return to the dating world - however the big comeback is in fact for professional purposes. 

The new episode, entitled Sex And The Widow, which hit screens on Thursday, sees the writer, played by Sarah Jessica Parker, put pen to paper to document the agony of being widowed for her memoir, yet when she is told the book is too dark, her publisher urges her to go on a date to make for a fitting epilogue. 

While Carrie's boozy return to the dating world is chronicled, Miranda, depicted by Cynthia Nixon, is left struggling with her non-existent sex life, which drives her back into the arms of Carrie's boss, non-binary Ché Diaz, played by Sara Ramirez, who she lauds for giving her the best sex of her life during their extramarital dalliance. 

Away from Carrie's dating and Miranda's sex life, Kristen Davis' character Charlotte is seen negotiating her way through tough spots in her marriage as she scolds Harry for 'mansplaining'.

Much to Carrie's delight and then shock, Amanda says: 'I want to fast track it for the Christmas season - I just have one note. This whole thing is so raw and so brutal. You spent your whole career talking about your quest for love. Then you finally find it and then he dies. It's pretty dark. It's a real departure for you as a character'.

Sagely nodding, Carrie replies: 'Well that's what happened. He departed.'

The agent responded: 'But you're known for writing Sex And The City. I'm afraid if we publish this as is, your readers are gonna jump out the window clutching their tubs of Häagen-Dazs.'

Carrie replied: 'Well that is certainly not what I want', before her agent said: 'I would love and I think this is easily done, we could give the readers some element of hope. Just a suggestion of a brighter future. For example I imagine at some point you're gonna start dating again.

Still stunned, Carrie asks: 'You want me to go on a date?', before it's suggested that the date is merely 'one page - not a chapter - just an epilogue for a glimmer of hope'.

Charlotte is dragged away by Harry - who again brings up her lack of apology. As he grumbles over the fact Charlotte has said sorry '12 times since they arrived', she hits back by saying women are forced to apologise constantly and tennis is 'the one place she doesn't have to say sorry'.

Clearly annoyed, Carrie says: 'Sex writer? Like I write porn or something?' Charlotte shouts: 'It's not a date, it's a lunch. And she's not a sex writer, she writes about relationships and the nuances of romance'.  

It's stated on stage: 'Ok, thanks for the clarification Charlotte. Why don't you come up and help me Carrie'. Things then turn very awkward as nobody puts in a starting bid - with a reveller pointing out: 'We're all married'.
