Peter goes after Strange, demanding to know how Carlie could have uncovered his identity after his spell.

The thing he has to do is give MJ the antidote, since she still has her spider-powers.

Also, Kaine is now scarless, and from the looks of it I'm guessing he's going to be the new Scarlet Spider. I liked what they did with Kaine when they brought him back (before 'killing' him off), but I'm not too crazy about prettifying him and making him some sort of superhero. And why tease the possibility of bringing Ben back?

And Julia Carpenter, the new Madame Web (I still don't understand why they had to kill off the old one and make her the new one) apologizes to Peter about the loss that's to come.

Mary Jane told Peter earlier in Slott's run to come forward with Carlie.

What really upsets her is she's just called him out as Spidey and he is still lying to her face. She has major trust issues and from her perspective, the entire relationship was a lie. And he's insulting her and her intelligence by standing there and denying it.

And if he really cared about her, he would have chased after her instead of going to Dr. Strange and saying "What the hell, man?!"

(Again, the reason I never cared about Carlie was because it was clear from the beginning that she wasn't important. Just a distraction to create this eventual drama.)

But it's not MJ's call to make.

True. But MJ is the only one who understood what Carlie's situation actually was. And I suspect we'll soon see MJ meeting up with Carlie.

Eh... I think they might be done as a couple for good.

There were a lot of problems with the Peter/Carlie relationship. Not just the reader perception of it.

On paper (not being punny with that), they would seem like a good match. They're both smart, driven people who try to do the right thing.

But in practice, things seemed off. It's more like we were told how good they would be rather than seeing how good they would be. Carlie has major trust issues and Peter has a hard time opening up. Their chemistry seemed off.

Dan Slott knows how to write good chemistry between characters. Look at the way he writes Peter and MJ. But the Peter/Carlie thing was just... off...

Also, it could be he's trying to reinforce the "don't remember" spell, which will actively cause anyone who is putting the truth together to prefer an option which means he's NOT Spider-Man, so she'd be more liable to believe a half-baked prevarication (since he had not, as far as he was aware at the time, broken the terms of the spell) than the actual truth. If the spell was in effect his excuse might well have worked.
