The Carrie Diaries Season 2 Review “Run to You”

If there was any doubt before that The Carrie Diaries would be done and dusted once this second season finale, ‘Run to You’ was over, then the events that transpired confirmed it. This was a series finale to the point where you wonder how they would ever pick it up again if the CW were to grant it a surprise renewal and, for fans of this show as much as Sex and the City, it was as perfectly satisfying as we could have expected.

But it wasn’t the traditional happy ending we might have been expecting, with the show instead dealing a healthy dose of reality into Carrie’s existence that stripped her of her first love, her stable family life, work and college all in the space of an hour. Whether you see this as setbacks or necessary character building depends on your own life experiences, but I definitely fall into the latter camp. I couldn’t have envisaged a better send-off for Carrie than this, and seeing her working for her dreams and building her life from the ground up is a fantastic message to put out there for younger fans going through the same struggles.
