WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD
Ever since Kim Cattrall and Sarah Jessica Parker's very public fallout, fans have been clamouring to find out what really went down between the former co-stars.
And we may finally have an answer, after the first episode of the long-awaited Sex And The City reboot dropped on Thursday.
Kim opted not to return as the iconic Samantha Jones, leaving the foursome reduced to a trio in ...And Just Like That.
And her character's absence is addressed in the very first scene, with the girls telling an acquaintance that their friend is 'no longer with us'.
It transpires that Samantha has moved to London, having been sacked as Carrie's publicist.
And the conversation that follows appears to be a thinly-veiled reference to the stars' IRL feud.
"I never thought she'd fire me as a friend," says Carrie, adding that Samantha has stopped taking the girls' phone calls.
Miranda notes that she and Charlotte had sent "multiple texts and I never heard back".
"I always thought the four of us would be friends forever," Carrie says, poignantly.
Rumours of a clash between the co-stars began swirling around the time Kim ruled herself out of a third SATC movie, but were confirmed in 2018 after SJP sent her condolences following the death of Kim's brother.
Kim promptly set the internet on fire when she responded: “My Mum asked me today ‘When will that @sarahjessicaparker, that hypocrite, leave you alone?’ Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now. Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven’t already) You are not my family. You are not my friend. So I’m writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your ‘nice girl’ persona.”
SJP later attempted to dampen rumours of a fallout, saying: "I don't dislike her. I've never said that. Never would. Samantha isn't part of this story [for the reboot]. But she will always be part of us. No matter where we are or what we do."
In other news, fans are in for a shock after a heartbreaking twist in episode one. You can read about it here.
