“It was like she was dead, we never talked about her,” Carrie tells Miranda in one of the first scenes of the revival. “She stopped answering my calls.”
“Her pride was damaged,” Miranda added.
Despite Carrie’s efforts to mend the fence with Samantha, she confesses that she was hurt by her old friend. “I think I’m more to her than an ATM.”
In the same scene, Miranda confirms that neither she nor Charlotte (Kristin Davis) speak to Samantha, despite texting and calling her to try to mend the fence.
“I guess that’s all we can do,” Miranda said. “I always thought the four of us would be friends forever,” added Carrie sadly.
