Ring a ding ding - S4-E16

Corrected entry: After Charlotte gives Carrie her engagement ring for the down payment on her co-op, wouldn't Carrie still have to qualify for a mortgage loan? It would have made more sense if she had asked one of her more well-to-do friends to co-sign the loan for her. It wouldn't cost them anything (unless Carrie defaulted, of course) and it would explain how she managed to buy a New York co-op with $1600 worth of assets.

Correction: The assumption here, is that Charlotte is giving Carrie a ring that is worth around $30,000 for her down payment. Not $1600. (It's a VERY large diamond, Trey was exceedingly wealthy). It would still be difficult to sell, but in NYC it's possible Carrie would get a high selling price from the right jeweler. Carrie had to either buy (meaning at least come up with a down payment) or vacate her apartment within 30 days. Since she is now able to afford the $30,000 down payment (the necessary amount was shown on Big's check); than we could reasonably assume Carrie would then qualify for the rest. All she has to do now, is make monthly payments that are probably not much more than her current rent was.

To market, to market - S6-E1

Plot hole: In this episode Carrie runs into Aidan, who now has what looks to be about a 6 month old baby (Tate). This doesn't seem possible, as Carrie and Aidan would have only broken up about a year ago, and Miranda was around 6 months pregnant when they broke up. Brady is only about 5 months old at this point in the series, leaving Aidan only roughly 8 months to have this baby - but Aidan lay in bed for about a month and then dated Nina Katz for awhile. Timeline just doesn't seem to fit.

Samantha: There isn't enough wall space in New York City to hang all of my exes. Let me tell you, a lot of them were hung.

Question: During the first few seasons (pretty obviously in season 3), Carrie often wears the same ring on her right or left hand on her middle finger. Is this Sarah Jessica Parker's wedding ring?

Answer: Yes, it is.
