Twitter is extremely here for it.
HBO Max’s Sex and the City reboot, And Just Like That, has given viewers a lot to process since its Dec. 9 release. Between a major character passing away and classic easter eggs that’ll make any fan’s hearts drop, SATC fans can’t help but wonder how much more they’ll be able to take. And a new potential twist isn’t boding well for one of the most beloved couples of the franchise. After watching the first few episodes, you might be wondering if Miranda and Che will date on And Just Like That. Let’s investigate, shall we?
Warning: Major spoilers for And Just Like That Episodes 1 and 2 follow. The series premiere introduced fans to a new character in the SATC universe, Che Diaz (Sara Ramirez). Che is a comedian who also hosts the podcast Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) contributes to. Che is also the first non-binary character to appear in the franchise.
When viewers meet Che, they’re in the middle of a recording session with Carrie talking about masturbation. While Che was candid about their ~self-pleasure~ habits on air, Carrie clammed up. As they left the recording session together, Che told Carrie she needed to be more forthcoming about her sexuality, or else she’s not going to last on the podcast.
It’s not until the second episode that fans got to see Che interact with Miranda (Cynthia Nixon). When Miranda’s son, Brady (Niall Cunningham), asked for a hit of the marijuana Che was smoking at Mr. Big’s funeral. Miranda — in a very Miranda move — forcefully intervened. At first, Che stood their ground, but eventually, they apologized to Miranda and complimented her on her parenting style. Though the interaction was short, the sparks were clearly flying after Che told Miranda she looked like “a Rambo” and not “a Miranda.”
With both Diaz and Nixon being proud members of the LGBTQ+ community IRL, it would be extra special to see their characters get together onscreen. But while many fans are clearly on board for this, there’s still Miranda’s husband, Steve (David Eigenberg) to consider. While a Miranda-Che shippage is already happening, might I instead suggest a throuple or poly situation? I don’t know if my heart can take another classic SATC couple ending. Maybe this way, fans can have their Che but keep Steve too.
And Just Like That continues with new episodes every Thursday on HBO Max.
