Oh look Halloween in February!! I guess this really illustrates that this show was supposed to be on in the fall and got pushed back to January.
At school, Carrie is trying to avoid Sebastian, but he is everywhere she goes- that’s the scary thing about High School, it’s so small you can’t avoid anyone and you are trapped there for 8 hours per day. Carrie, some ex-boyfriends are like herpes. They just keep coming back… Walt pokes his head out of the closet and tells her that right now it’s hard, but it will get better.
Sebastian calls Carrie over – he is having a Halloween party, but he is not inviting Carrie- who has other plans anyway- but she still thinks it is weird that Sebastian didn’t invite her. Sebastian counters that he thought it might be awkward. He is, after all, renting out a whole diner and inviting EVERYONE… well except Carrie and her friends.
At the diner, the girls are having a chat. Walt says he feels bad for Sebastian because Carrie snooped and found out information about Sebastian boning his teacher and then told people. Yeah, I mean why would Sebastian be mad about that?? Mags, for one, is happy Carrie has other plans for Halloween!! Carrie will be attending a party in Manhattan, at Larissa’s, with Walt.
Carrie is excited, not only is she going to a party, but she, for the first time, doesn’t have to watch The Dorrit. She and Walt are dressed like Prince Charles and Diana at their wedding. And Walt is dressed as the groom… under duress.
Their love is about as authentic as Chuck & Di’s
Carrie’s Dad is going to stay home to give out candy. The Dorrit proclaims “Halloween is stupid, I’ll be in my room.” She stomps upstairs. Carrie advises Dad that she recognizes the look on The Dorrit’s face and she is definitely going to sneak out and he should check the closets for contraband.
Cut to Dad finding a duffle bag that could have belonged to the Unibomber- filled with mischievous Halloween items- silly string, eggs, shaving cream, a switchblade, anthrax, napalm, toilet paper. Oh, and he also tells The Dorrit he has removed the ladder form beneath her window. Touché.
Carrie and Walt arrive at Larissa’s party- it’s a REAL downtown NY party.
The sea of extras from Eyes Wide Shut part to reveal… Princess Charming
Carrie immediately spies a cute boy- his name is Bennett Wilcox and he is a columnist for Interview magazine. She asks where Larissa is- and on cue, Larissa is carried in on a litter.
This is how I roll…
