Series Finale:     
Episodes 93 & 94 – An American Girl in Paris (part une and deux):
Before leaving for Paris, Carrie runs into Big (Chris Noth) outside of her apartment and makes it clear that she wants him out of her life. Then, Carrie has one last dinner with her three friends and its clear that her absence will have a profound impact on their lives.

Later on, after Carrie has left, the three girlfriends tell Big that he should go after Carrie. In Paris, Carrie feels lost and barely sees Aleksandr (Mikhail Baryshnikov).

Back in New York, Samantha’s chemotherapy treatments are killing her sex drive and she tries to push Smith away. Hoping to adopt their baby, Charlotte and Harry (Evan Handler) host an expectant couple from North Carolina.

Big finds an upset Carrie in Paris, they reconcile and she tells him she wants to go home. In the final scenes, we see Miranda enjoying breakfast with her family, Charlotte and Harry are walking their puppies and Samantha and Smith are making love again. Carrie is walking up a NYC street (wearing the same fur coat from the pilot episode) and her phone rings. The caller ID says “John.” She answers it and Big tells her he’s put the house on the market because he’s coming back to New York.
First aired: February 22, 2004.

    The show had been in rerun for quite some time. I realize this. However, there was no notice that Sunday evenings two regular episodes were to be the very last. The showings at 11:30 PM was how I wound down my day.

    I suppose this may sound strange or bizarre, but I was very comforted (since my family members died one after the other) by this television series. I did not mind seeing episodes repeatedly. My husband and I loved the series, and since he is gone, it has been a source of comfort to me. Is there a possibility that the series will be offered again?

    Do you know if I might obtain videos (not cdc’s) of the complete series?

    Thank you,
    Chris Russell
