This week we cover an absolutely iconique episode of Sex and the City, season 6 episode 18: Splat! In the third-to-last episode of the series, Carrie faces the big decision of whether or not she should leave New York and move to Paris with Petrovsky. We also get what is I think??? our first on-screen death??? Sadly it's not Carrie or Big though. Other topics of discussion this week: Quebec, our inexperience with Taco Bell, and snuff (the tobacco product, not the media).

• Henry Kissinger Is Pokemon Going To Die
• City Girls Make Do
• County Girls Make Do
This week we're on season 6 episode 17, The Cold War. Yes, they did think that was a clever episode title just because Carrie is dating a Russian and for really no other reason. Yes, we hate it. We also... once again get extremely lost in the weeds about Game of Thrones because we're just tired of where the plot of SATC is at this point and it's fun to be mad.
Well we're now at season 6 episode 16, Out of the Frying Pan, which means we're getting dangerously close to finishing all the episodes. Miranda's looking at a bigger place in gasp Brooklyn, Charlotte gets a new family member, and everyone is bald (including us).
It's hard to believe that they can make filler episodes this late into the series, but they sure did that with season 6 episode 15: Catch-38. At least, it was to us, because even if they're real conflicts they're extremely contrived. ANYWAY because we wanted to avoid talking about the actual episode, please enjoy listening to us talk about Rugrats instead!
Welcome to the shitty doodoo episode! This week we're discussing season 6 episode 14, The Ick Factor, and it's actually a pretty good episode of Sex and the City. We have a good mix of toilet humour and seriousness this time, with a bit of romance too (that WE enjoyed even if Carrie didn't). We also have a real fun time deciding the best and worst wedding themes, and also talking about the most important album of all time: The Black Parade (obviously).
We're into Part 2 of season 6 now, with episode 13: Let There Be Light. Everyone's kind of shitty at their worst and boring at their best this week, but we at least get to consider how Sex and the City and Twilight could take place in the same universe.
We're back, and this week we're discussing season 6 episode 12, One. Like the Metallica song except as a tv show (sorry HBO) episode. This time Miranda is positively TWISTED. She's full joker mode, absolutely fucked up. Which ties in well with the literal clown that appears in this episode for Brady's birthday I guess. Samantha is also going clown mode in a pube kind of way. We also meet Carrie's last major boyfriend, the Russian. Meh.
We're on our 10th to last episode of the show now and Carrie and Samantha are realizing that they have Dennis Reynolds voice feelings. Big too, but only for roughly one scene of season 6 episode 11, The Domino Effect. Honestly everyone sucked this week except Charlotte (who was just boring), so instead why don't you listen to us talk about how Keri Russell's forehead vein acting is superior to Emma Watson's eyebrow acting.
Gamers! We're joined once again by the one and only val flightcub, who's here to teach us non-Americans what homecoming is. And also, to discuss season 6 episode 10 of Sex and the City: Boy Interrupted. It's kind of a David Duchovny one! He's Carrie's high school sweetheart and he COULD be the perfect guy for Carrie if it wasn't for the, you know, Mental Illness. Carrie has a completely normal one this week being ableist and bad about it. But on the other hand, Samantha does a funny accent! Find val on twitter!
Once again we are joined by the wonderful Sara as we tackle season 6 episode 9 (nice) A Woman's Right to Shoes (really???). Samantha is posting on r/childfree while Miranda either has chicken pox or smallpox (those are the same right?). Meanwhile, Carrie is slighted by an evil parent and pulls off an elaborate ruse for shoes. Also, we stan Harry. Find Sara on twitter!
