‘And Just Like That’ Episode 9 Release Date & Preview

Episode 9 of “And Just Like That” is set to release on January 27, 2022. There exists no official synopsis for the upcoming episode. However, there is an official promo that sheds sufficient light on what’s to come. We will see Carrie go on a second date which she terms as a “do-over”. However, she’s still reserved about her calling it a date. Charlotte seems more excited at the date than Carrie, who says as much as to take the romance out of it. However, it does seem that this date might bloom into something more. That all will depend on if Carrie seeks another serious relationship after Big’s passing — something that she’s still not entirely over yet.

Meanwhile, the next episode will see Miranda get hit hard by the reality of her dynamic with Che, which has been eluding her traditional way of approach towards relationships, no matter how much she wants to escape the “traditional”. Che can be seen telling Miranda that she’s not their girlfriend and they’re not dating. “We’re not?” — asks Miranda. However, they do seem to have dinner at a restaurant later and laugh along with each other. So it seems if anything, Miranda will most likely learn to expand her horizons regarding relationships and marriage than pursue a serious, traditional relationship with Che. Meanwhile, Steve will turn to Carrie to ask about Miranda’s extra-marital affair timeline. Charlotte, meanwhile, will continue to contend with Lily’s troubles. She’s a teenage girl and the teenage girl problems — periods and the surrounding exasperation — are catching up to her.
