Back at Larissa’s drug den- Carrie finds Bennettt and starts hitting on him. Bennett breaks the news to Carrie that Walt ran off alone. Carrie is pissed- Walt is wandering the City HIGH on drugs!!! So were the bulk of the people in the 80’s and most of them turned out ok.
Well maybe not EVERYONE turned out ok…
Carrie doesn’t understand, Bennett had told her he would keep an eye on Walt. They walk into Larissa’s room and see a dude, dressed as one of the cast of Cats, groping an unconscious Larissa.
It’s so easy to leave me
All alone with the memory
Of my days in the sun
If you touch me
You’ll understand what happiness is
Carrie yells at him to get off of her. (Wasn’t there a 90210 Halloween episode where the Cowboy tries to rape Kelly?) Bennett doesn’t really care, after all, Larissa got herself into this situation. Carrie asks if he feels the same way about Walt??? Um, yeah, probably, Bennett has known Walt for all of 45 minutes. Carrie tells Bennett to look after Larissa, as she needs to go look for Walt. And Carrie tells him to NOT take advantage of Larissa while she is gone. Bennett responds “She’s not my type, breeder.” (ok, I threw in the “breeder”) Carrie deduces he is gay.
I added 2 +2 and got gay
On the drug soaked streets of Manhattan, Walt sees two dudes walking hand in hand.
He witnesses two other dudes harassing them for being gay.
“Street Thugs took my armoire?”
Walt, oddly, intervenes because he realizes he is just like them. (yeah, well, except he’s not holding anyone’s hand… and he’s dressed like a big-ear’d Prince with a horse fetish.)
Carrie, eventually, finds Walt. Walt is upset. He thought he wanted to be a part of the party scene in Manhattan, but now he thinks he can’t handle it. They decide to leave. Carrie consoles him, the pill will wear off, he’s just not himself- because of the ecstasy. But for the first time Walt IS himself.
As Carrie walks home from the train, she realizes, Manhattan has shown its dark side, but she left the city knowing what she wanted to be: a good friend. When Carrie gets to her house, she finds Sebastian there, with, a baked, Mouse.
Tee Hee, I have the munchies
He apologizes and says it is weird that he is there, but he knew it would be wrong to ditch Mouse. Carrie thanks him for being a good friend to Mouse. Meanwhile, Mouse just wants some Pop Rocks and a Chocodile. After Sebastian leaves, Carrie tells Mouse “You’ve got some serious explaining to do!”
