It’s Valentine’s Day on THE CARRIE DIARIES, but it won’t be all hearts and roses for our favorite characters. In fact, a few relationships will face some of their biggest tests yet.

“Well, I think this week’s episode is obviously a big one for Walt and Bennet, with a lot of dramatic underpinnings,” THE CARRIE DIARIES creator Amy B. Harris teased. “For me, I think using Valentine’s Day as a place to expose the conventions of love often bump up against the realities of love, was a very exciting for me with all the storylines, but obviously, for Walt and Bennet, this is a big one. And it’s something we’ve been very eager to lead up to, which is if you’re by the gay community in New York in the ’80s, the AIDS epidemic is obviously a part of that universe.”

As Walt and Bennet deal with life-or-death issues, Carrie and Sebastian struggle to figure out their own future, as Mr. Kydd ponders whether to get into business with a young Tony Hawk.

Throughout its two seasons, THE CARRIE DIARIES has often sprinkled little bits of foreshadowing of how this version of Carrie Bradshaw will grow up to become the woman viewers met on SEX AND THE CITY. And in this Friday’s brand new episode “The Safety Dance,” the show lays out another important first for our girl: she decides to write about sex.

Fortunately — or unfortunately, as the case may be — she has Samantha and Larissa to turn to for a bit of mentorship on the subject, and…it goes pretty much how you’d expect it to.

Check out an exclusive clip from “The Safety Dance” of Carrie sharing her newest writing idea with the ladies, and their hilarious reaction to it…

THE CARRIE DIARIES will put Carrie in awkward positions at home and at work in tonight’s brand new episode, “Borderline,” as Carrie struggles with meeting her father’s girlfriend’s trouble-making son and a difficult “Interview” assignment.

“I think it’s interesting when people are dating who have kids, because you can really like each other, but your kids actually have to like each other, [too,]” THE CARRIE DIARIES showrunner Amy B. Harris told me earlier this week on the show’s New York set. “And that story was stimulated [because] I had been set up with someone [in the past] and it was a family thing, it was very casual, it was just, ‘If you guys like each other, great.’ And he seemed nice enough, but his kid was a total asshole, and everyone was like, ‘No, that can’t happen.’ So that’s a little bit of what we’re going to be managing: how Carrie and Dorrit are going to be getting along with this child. It’s going to be harder for them, because I do think as you’re married with kids, who you date isn’t just about you anymore, it’s about how your family is going to possibly blend. But I do think Carrie is more open to the idea of her father dating now.”

The new, maturer Carrie is also pressing to have more responsibilities at her “Interview” internship, but Harris acknowledged the path for her writing career won’t be that simple.

Carrie Bradshaw’s introduction to New York takes a very interesting turn when Larissa brings her young protégé to an, um, unusual art club in Monday’s brand new episode of THE CARRIE DIARIES.

“Every time I get a new script, I open pages with nervous anticipation and excitement, thinking, ‘Where is Larissa going to be, what is she going to be doing?'” Freema Agyeman (Larissa) told me. “Because it’s always got to be something that contrasts Carrie’s home life and shocks and entertains and opens [Carrie’s] eyes to a whole new existence…It happens to be that [particular] backdrop in episode three.”

Because of the nature of the scene (and the storyline), the cast had a bit of fun with the prep and filming of the hour.
