To celebrate the Internet's obsession with Throwback Thursday, we will be recapping our favorite past episodes of television every week. Her timing wasn't great; she blurted it out right before she and Aidan were supposed to leave for Charlotte's (Kristen Davis) wedding. Turns out, he was lying about being an ER doc to impress Miranda. Samantha is successful in seducing the Scottish groomsman, Caleb (Ritchie Coster).
Oh, and Charlotte hasn't had sex with Trey yet, because she wanted to save herself for the wedding night. And what's worse: he doesn't think it's a big deal.
and sacrifices his life in order to rally the Avengers and save the world.
Charlotte clearly feels otherwise, but she says nothing until literally the moment before she is supposed to walk down the aisle.
She tells her maid of honor Carrie that Trey "can't get it up," and she's worried she's about to make a big mistake. She can't take the secret anymore, so when Aidan comes to pick her up for Charlotte's wedding, she comes clean. The episode is titled "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," but Carrie does tell: "I cheated." And she does ask: "Can we stay together despite this?
Carrie tries to soothe her, even offering up the old excuse: "Maybe he jerked off before you got there, and he was too embarrassed to tell you." Charlotte still looks hesitant, so Carrie tells her that they can run away together, and everyone else can "get over it." But she's in a super expensive Vera Wang gown, and she does love Trey, so she's going through with it. "We find out later after the ceremony that Aidan cannot stay with Carrie after what she did to him.
Outside the church where two people were joined together, another twosome was falling apart.
Carrie resorted to just above begging to try and keep Aidan, who gave the simplest (yet most profound) reason why they couldn't stay together:"I just know myself.
This isn't the kind of thing I can get over."So Carrie had to watch Aidan walk out of her life.
And while she's dissolving into tears, Miranda calls her over for wedding photos.
Because who doesn't want their pain documented for life?
But it's there, standing beside her best friends on the church steps, where she comes to at least one happy revelation:"It's hard to find people who will love you no matter what.
