Mr. Big dies after having a heart attack — in the sixth season of “Sex and the City,” it was established he had a heart condition that required surgery.
Parker and Noth in “And Just Like That.”
Hearts broke across New York City — and, frankly, the world — when Mr. Big died in Carrie’s arms in the first episode of “And Just Like That.” While some have speculated that his Peloton workout played a part in his demise, this isn’t the first mention of him having cardiac problems.
In the episode “The Domino Effect,” he returns to the city for a “routine” heart operation and temporarily revives his romantic relationship with Carrie.
After the “And Just Like That” episode aired, Peloton released a statement, saying, “Mr. Big lived what many would call an extravagant lifestyle — including cocktails, cigars, and big steaks — and was at serious risk as he had a previous cardiac event in Season 6.”
The statement added: “These lifestyle choices and perhaps even his family history, which often is a significant factor, were the likely cause of his death.”
Peloton went on to create a tongue-in-cheek ad starring Noth, who played Mr. Big and the real-life instructor King, who also appeared in the series.
