This week’s episode of The Carrie Diaries focuses on getting all caught up in relationship drama. The relationships up on the judging block this week are: Maggie and her hot police officer, Dorit and her dad, Carrie and George/Sebastian (yikes!), and Mouse and Seth. This episode addresses how to make relationships work, how you need to be strong, when relationships just stop working, and what to do you are trapped between two boys.
This week, Maggie learns that you need to be honest, and after a heart to heart with Carrie she realizes that she needs to be truthful with Walt – funny, I think Walt should be truthful with her and himself, but that’s another story. Carrie makes the mistake of trying to get rid of feelings for Sebastian by throwing herself into a relationship with George which, unsurprisingly, ends in heartbreak.
Here are the 10 biggest moments you missed on last nights episode of The Carrie Diaries
1) Carrie Gets “Caught”
Although Carrie is very happy with George thus far, she can’t deny the spark that still exists between her and Sebastian, especially after Thanksgiving. The two are still as flirty as before, regardless their respective romantic attachments. With two cute guys wrapped around her finger, what’s Carrie to do?
2) Mouse gets a B+
Mouse never gets less than an A+ so getting a B+ rattles her. Stereotype much? She flips out and decides it’s because she is spending too much time with Seth. She decides to take on an extra credit assignment to compensate for her “failure.”
3) Dorit’s closet
Dorit’s wardrobe get’s better and better. It seems to be packed with cute, cozy sweaters that can be worn over anything. This bunny sweater is surprisingly not tacky and very cute. Dorit, like me, seems to have quite a thing for knits.
4) Dorit and her father go see The Nutcracker
When Nutcracker tickets show up in the mail, Mr. Bradshaw doesn’t know what to do. Dorit normally goes to see the show with her mother, and now who is going to go with her? Since Carrie can’t go, Mr. Bradshaw decides to take her and chaos ensues. Angsty teenage Dorit doesn’t want to be with her father who just can’t get it right. She eventually opens up and confesses she’s been a little lonely with her mom (and confident) gone. In a heartwarming gesture, her dad assures Dorit she is never alone, and the two end up having a pleasant evening.
…Also, the dress Dorit took from her mom’s closet earlier this season was adorable. Green and white floral should be a thing.
5) Jealous Sebastian
The only thing hotter than flirty Sebastian is jealous Sebastian. Look at him: that hair, those pursed lips… Is this decision really so hard, Carrie? Carrie, jealous of Donna, decides to play Sebastian’s game. She dances and kisses George infront of Sebastian and he reacts the way she wanted. Sebastian may be aware of Carrie’s game, but that doesn’t prevent him from being jealous. Seems like the two are still hung up on each other.
6) George shows his true colours
Caught up in wanting to make Sebastian jealous, Carrie drags George out to his car where George tries to get Carrie to sleep with him. Carrie admits that she’s a virgin which George is okay with, because he assumes he will be her first. Carrie quickly learns that George doesn’t take her virginity, or sex, as seriously as she does.While she see’s it as something special, George sees it as something to”get over with.” Thank god, Carrie has a good head on her shoulders and is set in her values, because she breaks up with him for being so slimy. Bye, George. See you never.
7) Mouse and Seth break up
The adorable couple acknowledgesdthat their relationship has caused their academic life to falter. With two driven people in one relationship, Mouse decides that they can’t have any distractions if they’re to reach their full potential. In other words, they need to break up. Seth says they can work on time management, but Mouse believes there is no middle ground — they need to be in relationships with their schoolwork. This is madness! They’re so adorable and she’s throwing it away! Unfortunately, while they’re mature enough to realized that their work is falling to the wayside, they’re not mature enough to manage their time more wisely. Oh, Mouse. Such a mistake.
8) Maggie and Carrie have a heart to heart
Surprisingly, after Donna catches Maggie with her hot police officer and threatens to expose her if she doesn’t keep Carrie from Sebastian, Maggie spills. She tells Carrie everything and Carrie advises Maggie to be honest. I love the relationship between these two. There’s no secrets, no judgments. I hope Carrie vouches for Maggie if and when she tells Walt.
9) Donna is out for the kill
Donna realizes Sebastian and Carrie still have sparks flying between them. The only answer? Cut off all connection between the two. Catching Maggie in a sticky situation gives her full power to keep the two love birds apart — if Maggie complies. Lets be real, it’s Maggie we’re talking about here. Does she ever comply? If Maggie won’t do her dirty work, it looks like Donna might have to do serious damage control and I’m sure we haven’t seen the worst she could do. We should all be very afraid for Carrie.
All episode long Carrie is “caught” between two internships. She wants to intern at Interview Magazine with Larissa but she doesn’t want to let her father down by quitting her position at the law firm. By the end of the episode Carrie decides to make her own decision and take charge of her life. We see her opening the doors (definitely no symbolism there) to the swanky news room of Interview. Good luck when your father finds out you quit the law firm, Carrie. However, the Interview offices does look like the newsroom of a journalist’s dream. Where can I apply?
