The Carrie Diaries recap: Caught
Liking Carrie Bradshaw is risky business.
The Carrie Diaries was break-up central this week!
Carrie and George
Things were going good for Carrie (the beautiful and silly, AnnaSophia Robb) and George. That is, until, she took him to the winter dance and spent the entire time watching Sebastian (Austin Butler) watching her. Eventually she cornered Kidd and told him to knock it off. Then, just to prove she was "over him", she planted one very serious kiss on George's lips and led him out of the dance and to his limo.
Once in the back of the limo, George wanted to keep at it, but Carrie wasn't ready. When he got nonchalant about sex and her virginity, it only made things worse. When he commented on how it must be because of her age, Carrie figured out George was basically a rich d-bag and that she didn't want to be with him. Their break-up was pretty anti-climactic... except for the part where he left her at the dance and told her to find another ride home.
Mouse and Seth
This one came out of nowhere — even Seth was surprised. It was so melodramatic. At the beginning of the show, Mouse received her first ever "B" on an assignment and immediately had a meltdown. To make her feel better, Mouse's teacher gave her a massive packet of extra credit. There was one stipulation, though. It had to be done by 8 p.m. on the night of the dance. Needless to say, Mouse spent the entire dance sitting in the hallway outside the classroom trying to finish the extra credit while Seth looked on.
After she missed the deadline and she and Seth were caught trying to break into the class to leave the paper on her teacher's desk, Mouse decided they needed to break up. School and their futures were both too important to them... they couldn't let a relationship stand in the way.
It's actually really logical insight for a high schooler, but it was delivered poorly and ended up just feeling very eye-roll worthy.
Maggie and Walt
After Maggie was left alone and bored at the dance, she called up her old pal from the police department so they could fool around in the backseat of his cruiser. On her way out, though, the evil and conniving Donna LaDonna saw her. After watching as Sebastian looked at Carrie with those hurt puppy dog eyes, Donna needed a way to keep her claws hook into Kidd and she tried to use Maggie's tryst to her advantage.
During a bonding moment, though, Maggie told Carrie everything and Carrie told Mags that it's time for her to come clean to Walt. While we don't see the break-up, it seems pretty inevitable.
Will Maggie finally come clean about the late night rendezvous with the law enforcement officer? Will Sebastian notice he can't shake his feelings for Carrie and decide to try again? And will this really be the end of Mouse and Seth? There's only one way to find out!
