New York, New York - And Just Like That's latest episode delivers a shocking blow to one of the core couples of the series – was this a huge mistake?

Yes, AJLT did what everyone feared.

Thursday's episode ended with Miranda Hobbs, played by Cynthia Nixon, deciding to divorce her hubby, the lovable Steve Brady, reprised by David Eigenberg, for her lover, Che.

While this wasn't exactly a shocker, it was enough to really anger fans, who aired their grievances on social media.

And to be frank, it's hard to argue with some of their points.

What started off as an intriguing experiment has now fizzled into a hot mess and is honestly starting to tarnish the legacy that Sex and the City left behind.

Sure, the obviously aged characters of the series have to change because change is part of life.

Yet, the writers of the reboot may have wanted to do their homework before creating this seemingly unfixable monster with the HBO Max series.

Meanwhile, not much has changed in the worlds of Carrie and Charlotte, and thank God for this as the damage that's been to Miranda is enough to talk about for weeks to come.

For weeks, viewers have been forced to endure Miranda's illicit affair with her bestie's boss.

Things finally came to a head in the sixth episode perfectly titled, Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered – as everyone was very bewildered and bothered with Miranda's choice.

The former lawyer has a heart-to-heart with her husband after almost being caught in the act by their son at a LGBTQ rally.

Steve's heartbreak over his wife's sneaking around leads him to call out Miranda for again not appreciating him – and he's right.

Though Steve isn't all the way innocent, as the bartender did cheat on Miranda in the 2008 SATC flick, he's always been team Steve/Miranda since he laid eyes on her.

And yes, though Miranda, who's type-A personality often clashed with her hubby's laid back nature, made a lot of sacrifices for her family, she's definitely not the passionate redhead who sweetly proposed to Steve.

Now she's throwing away her long-standing marriage because she's bored?

Instead of being the logical and reasonable one, Miranda has done a full 180 and is now acting like a school girl willing to risk it all for someone who, as coming attractions have teased, can't even commit to her.

It appears that Carrie's gal pal is headed for some severe heartbreak, but fans are up in arms over the whole ordeal.

One person tweeted, "Unpopular opinion - Miranda never deserved Steve from the beginning."

Another fan wrote, "STEVE DESERVES BETTER!!! #AndJustLikeTha , especially Miranda gloating in the taxi on the way to the airport… ‘I’m in a rom com, Carrie’ bleughhhh."

Only two episodes remain for this mess to be fixed.
