Continuity mistake: When the girls are watching TV and eating popcorn, all along the scene Miranda's hand movements are not continuous between shots. Most noticeable when Carrie asks her if she hates the babyshower because it's Laney's, Miranda's hand swaps from reaching the bowl with popcorn to away from it.

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.
