Off the bat, the fact that Samantha was always the one to fly to NYC, while Carrie, Miranda, and Charlotte never even offered to fly to LA:
When Samantha agreed to be Carrie's maid of honor even though she 100% does not believe in marriage:
Like, she flew back for Carrie's Vogue photoshoot and supported her through any and all wedding festivities:
When Samantha did damage control for Carrie after Big stood her up at the altar:
When Samantha got everyone on Carrie's honeymoon after she was unable to get Carrie a refund:
Lastly, and my personal favorite, when Samantha spoon-fed Carrie after she was too depressed to eat:
...and, this got me to thinking — especially with how awful / non canon her storyline is — just how TRASH of a friend Miranda was in the movies!
Like when Carrie told her and Charlotte that Big got them their dream penthouse in Manhattan and instead of being happy, Miranda decided to be bitter:
When, after Steve cheated, Miranda had Carrie uninvite him to the rehearsal dinner and wedding:
When she told Big — a man she knows has a crippling fear of commitment — that he was crazy to get married:
When, after telling Big not to marry Carrie / leading to their wedding disaster, she didn't tell Carrie...
Lastly, and most offensively, when Miranda — and Carrie and Charlotte, tbh — judged Samantha for her weight gain:
AND THIS WAS JUST IN THE FIRST MOVIE!
Imma say something controversial, yet brave: I'm glad Samantha isn't in And Just Like That because, frankly, she deserves better friends than them and ESPECIALLY a better friend than Miranda.
