We’re not over the tragic end to Mr. Big’s “better-than-the-gym workout.” 

HBO Max Sex and the City reboot,It’s as Simple As That…, arrived Dec. 9 and brought with it a storyline that no one had anticipated: Mr. Big’s death. Now, Peloton’s cardiologist, Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum, is addressing his fatal heart attack. 

In the first episode of the series, Mr. Big suffers a fatal heart attack after completing his 1,000th Peloton ride and getting a shoutout from his favorite instructor, Allegra. Later on, in the second episode, Miranda’s (Cynthia Nixon) husband, Steve Brady (David Eigenberg), mentions that Big had heart problems, but Miranda explains that his cardiologist signed off on him doing the workout. 

Peloton’s cardiacologist has given Mr. Big the okay, but only after he’s had a heart attack. BigHis “extravagant life” gets “thumbs up.”

“I’m sure SATC fans, like me, are saddened by the news that Mr. Big dies of a heart attack,” said Steinbaum. “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.”

He died from his lifestyle and possibly his family’s history. His death may have been delayed by him riding his Peloton Bike.

You’re saying that we need to stop eating our evening cheeseburgers, large fries, and cosmopolitans? That’s it.
