Carrie and her boyfriend, Big, agree to marry, but Big is unable to go through with it after a heartbroken Miranda informs him that marriage will ruin everything. Charlotte learns she is pregnant and worries tirelessly that something will happen to the baby. When she unexpectedly runs into Big, she gives him a piece of her mind, causing her water to break. Big reveals his remorse, but doesn’t see Carrie until she returns to their recently-purchased luxury penthouse, where he proposes in the walk-in closet with a diamond encrusted shoe.
