And Just Like That... reveals fate of Stanford after Willie Garson died of cancer during filming

Willie Garson lost his battle with pancreatic cancer in September at the age of 57 during the middle of filming And Just Like That… 

And devoted Sex and the City viewers found at least some closure between a beloved friendship as Carrie Bradshaw navigated a new world without her late husband, Mr. Big, as she said goodbye to her best friend Stanford Blatch.

During the fourth episode of the HBO Max revival, Carrie (portrayed by Sarah Jessica Parker) found herself back in her old Upper East Side apartment as she mulled the idea of selling the home she once shared with big, played by Chris Noth.

While roaming through the old haunt, she found a note on the bed from Stanford saying he had left the country.

‘Dearest Carrie, by the time you read this I’ll be in Tokyo. I couldn’t tell you — not without crying,’ the letter read. ‘And you have had enough crying.’ 

Anthony Marentino (Mario Cantone) appeared at the door: ‘You’re smoking?’ he asked, before she said: ‘Stanford’s in Japan?’

‘He said he couldn’t bring himself to tell you he was leaving face-to-face after Big died,’ Anthony said.

‘Right, and a note is so much more compassionate,’ she quipped.

‘Oh you know Stanny, he hates to disappoint people … in person,’ Anthony teased. 

‘Still, you know, if something good is happening in one of my friends’ lives — and I’m assuming he considers this good — I want to know about it. No matter what is going on in mine. Good news or bad, I want to know,’ she said.

'I don't get it. We were so happy,' he added jokingly as the couple were known for constantly bickering.

Garson died at his home in Los Angeles on Sept. 21. and was survived by a 20-year-old son, Nathen.

Willie adopted his son in 2009 from the foster system as a single parent, and he shared with People previously that the decision was welcomed by Nathen, who was nine at the time. 

Although Garson filmed some scenes for And Just Like That…, and was featured at the start of the season, showrunner Michael Patrick King told the New York Times that Garson’s death wouldn’t be written into the show ‘because it wasn’t charming.’
