Haha haha! I completely forgot Mike left the show and came back to pick up Carrie. I legit thought they left at the same time. I think I was really over Christie and her bad hair* at this point and thought she would return in like 6 months. I was wrong lol.
*her hair looks fine in this clip but see 1995-1999 as a reference because oof that hair....
I feel I have an excuse to have forgotten that they got together because this scene was very subtle and nuanced and the message could easily have been lost on me lol
But at least Christie looked glowing there.
Wow, I completely forgot that Carrie left with Mike. (And considering Mike's history, I know I should have probably been squicked out. But I was one of those viewers that liked Carrie/Mike over Carrie/Austin.)
