Psst: And Just Like That spoilers ahead.
In episode 6 of And Just Like That, our favorite widow, Carrie Bradshaw, takes up residence in a modern waterfront downtown condo with too much light (apparently there is such a thing) and an incessant beeping of which she can't figure out its origin. Is it the fridge? The buzzer? The dishwasher? On a call with Anthony, the event-planner-turned-baker insists it's the dishwasher because, well, it's always the dishwasher. But as a viewer, we couldn't help but wonder, what will the beeping mystery expose? Is it an old cell phone with a message from Samantha? A handsome neighbor's pager that leads to a romantic meet-cute? Or is it actually just coming from the dishwasher leading to some perfect little metaphor about something being right under your nose?
When Carrie finally calls the building to request help with the source of the beeping, we—well, at least me and my And Just Like That...a Sex and The City Reboot Podcast co-host Phil Mutz—assumed we'd finally get an answer. But the building can't manage it until Monday, and the episode—and Carrie's tenure in the fancy apartment—end before we get to Monday.
So...what was the beeping?!?! Well, on this week's podcast episode, a friend of our show with an expert eye figured out pretty definitively what the hell it was.
