In some ways, we knew this was coming. In July a leaked portion of the And Just Like That… script suggested there would be a conflict with Carrie Bradshaw‘s husband, Mr. Big. “I was taping the podcast, I was washing my hair. Yes, I wasn’t eating or sleeping, but at least I felt good about my marriage. Now I’m just one of the wives he was taking care of?,” Bradshaw reportedly says.

Well now it would seem that the beloved on-screen couple were unable to make amends judging by new behind-the-scenes pictures from the set. Sarah Jessica Parker was seen kissing a mystery character, played by Jon Tenney (known for his role in The Closer). HBO Max, the studio behind the Sex and the City reboot, has not disclosed any information about this character yet.

Given the leaked script and Big’s apparent many wives, all signs point to a divorce. Or perhaps a more modern, and open marriage? How very Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith of them. Given Bridget Moynahan, who played the man’s ex Natasha, was spotted on set in July, it could be the earlier scenario.

Parker was also seen filming a solo scene on the streets of Manhattan in what could only be described as “Grandma-core”. If the series does choose to address the pandemic like so many other shows, this could be her lockdown look. She wore two headscarves, a hoodie, nightie, unbuckled Mary Jane heels and rubber gloves.

Something tells us that if we keep poring over paparazzi images from the set, we’re going to learn the whole plot line before its release.

The And Just Like That… cast was rocked last month when actor Willie Garson (who plays Bradshaw’s best friend Stanford Blatch) passed away at age 57 due to a battle with cancer.
