Relationships were the themes in Thursday's episode for the Sex and the City revival series.

While Carrie, played by Sarah Jessica Parker, unwittingly gets back into the dating game, her BFF Miranda, portrayed by Cynthia Nixon, continues to struggle with the lack of sex in her marriage.

As refreshing as it is to see the infamous sex writer trying to move on with her life, it seems she still is missing the pizzaz she once had years ago.

Still, Carrie's supposed new fella Peter finally makes his debut.

Major Crimes star Jon Tenney plays the humble school teacher who may be the perfect antidote for the widow, who is looking to start fresh.

But will she be able to actually give him a chance? The two's first date was a bit cringeworthy, to say the least.

The ladies may have changed after all these years, but when it comes to relationships, it seems they're still a bit clueless on the languages of love.

All is fair in sex and love. But when it comes to cheating, is there a line that needs to be drawn?

While the show has dabbled here and there in the importance of sex in relationships, the most recent episode shows why it's also vital to have honest conversations with a significant other.

Miranda's marriage to Steve is a prime example.

The former lawyer does try to spice things up with her long-standing hubby, but it ultimately fails and in a desperate move. And Miranda finds herself back in bed with Che, played by Sara Ramirez.

For many reasons, the whole ordeal still seems wrong – and paints Miranda poorly.

After Che and Miranda's rendezvous, Miranda blurts out that she "loves" Che, who doesn't say it back. Desperate much?

Miranda is too high off of endorphins to even comprehend that she's going down a very slippery slope.

What's even more shocking is that her friends are watching this happen, especially when they're all super tight with each other's respective partners.

With only three episodes remaining, the SATC revival has a lot to tie up before the finale. Hopefully it does so in a way that doesn't offend the fans of the original series.

And Just Like That is now streaming on HBO Max.
