In a shockingly delightful turn of events, Kim Cattrall reprised her iconic role as Samantha Jones in the season 2 finale of “And Just Like That…,” the highly anticipated spinoff series of “Sex and the City.” Fans of the show were ecstatic to see the beloved character make a cameo appearance after her absence throughout most of the series.
The episode begins with Samantha calling her longtime friend Carrie, played by Sarah Jessica Parker, to inform her that her flight has been delayed, preventing her from attending Carrie’s “Last Supper” party at her old apartment. However, Samantha doesn’t disappoint her friend completely, as she surprises her by bidding farewell to the apartment over the phone, giving a delightful twist to the moment with a British accent reminiscent of her British alter-ego, Annabelle Bronstein.
The absence of Samantha in the spinoff series was explained in the premiere episode, where it was revealed that she and Carrie had grown apart after Samantha was fired as her publicist and decided to move to London. Throughout the season, Samantha’s presence was greatly missed, making fans eager for her return in the finale.
Cattrall’s initial reluctance to be a part of the reboot stemmed from her dissatisfaction with Samantha’s storyline in the never-produced third “Sex and the City” movie, which coincidentally parallels the plot of “And Just Like That…” However, she eventually agreed to return to the show after receiving a call from the head of HBO. Her demands included bringing back the original costume designer, Patricia Field.
Interestingly, Cattrall filmed her cameo without interacting with the main stars of the series or the showrunner, Michael Patrick King. Despite the behind-the-scenes dynamics, fans were thrilled to have Samantha back, if only for a brief moment.
“And Just Like That…” has been streaming on Max, captivating viewers with its fresh take on the lives of Carrie, Miranda, and Charlotte. With the exciting addition of Samantha’s appearance in the finale, the series has left fans eagerly anticipating what’s in store for the next season.
As the episode concluded, viewers were left with a mix of emotions – the joy of Samantha’s unexpected presence and the anticipation for what lies ahead. One thing is for certain: Kim Cattrall has once again proven her iconic status as the fabulous Samantha Jones.
