LYING AND CONSEQUENCES — New couple Carrie and Sebastian can’t seem to catch a break. Between being grounded and rival Donna’s sneaky attempts to break them apart, Carrie worries Sebastian will lose interest in her. Desperate for some alone time with him, Carrie must lie to her father and bail on plans with her sister Dorrit. Carrie finally gets closer with Sebastian as the two finally kiss in the pool, but Carrie's sister Dorrit tells their dad about the two and he comes in to take Carrie home. Tom then tries to protect Carrie by telling her that she should not be dating Sebastian any more. Maggie’s obsession with having sex drives a wedge between her and Walt. Meanwhile, Larissa wants to do a photo shoot with Carrie’s purse for Interview magazine, forcing Carrie to scramble to make it work.



Carrie is seen reading 'Interview' magazine, the September 1984 issue and on the cover is Joan Collins. Dorrit's T-Shirt features the band Joy Division. Joy Division were an English rock band active between 1976-1980.

Carrie: So you wanna meet or not?
Sebastian: Of course.
Carrie: Don't be late.
