Carrie Bradshaw finally has a chance to present everybody to Aleksandr Petrovsky at a dinner, but he's rather aloof and drops the bombshell that he expects her to move with him to Paris for good. Samantha Jones and Charlotte York act supportive after some questions, but Miranda Hobbes opposes the idea. Enid Frick invites Carrie to a party, and asks her to bring Aleksandr and a friend of his for her. However she rejects graying/greying food critic Martin Grable as an elderly "hobbit", dumps him on Carrie and argues the fishing pond for her age group is so small that Carrie's relationship with the older Russian is unfair. Charlotte's King Charles Spaniel joins the list of pregnant females to be jealous of, annoyingly after doing it with 8 pedigree-less dogs, but when the puppies come so does Charlotte's maternal instinct. After ample consideration, Carrie quits her job and announces, symbolically at the funeral of Lexi Featherston, the party scandal queen of the 1980s, she is moving with Aleksandr to Paris.
