Manifest Review – Wingman (3×03)
A Peacock, peacock feathers, ancient Egyptians — what does it all have to do with Flight 828?
We’ve been asking ourselves that question for two seasons, but on Manifest Season 3 Episode 3, the mythology begins to bubble up to the surface.
It’s promising a sign that we aren’t completely abandoning the symbolism because it’s part of a larger plan.
However, we’re kind of past the point of continuously seeing the peacock without any context. Audiences want to know how it fits into the overall mystery of the plane’s return.
We find comfort in knowing that there is a piece of the puzzle out there just waiting to be found that may provide some of the answers we’re seeking.
The Callings tried to lead Ben to the papyrus, but sadly, Eagan decided to dispose of it while pawning off some of the other artifacts he stole from the storage unit.
Even without the papyrus’ missing piece, we know the peacock is a symbol for two things: immortality and resurrection.
Younger Review – Risky Business (7×04)
Who knew it was possible to hate Quinn more than we already do?
For much of Younger Season 7 Episode 4, Quinn was actually quite tolerable.
Her book proposal was good, she was goofing off with the employees, and her birthday Dave and Busters outing (shameless promo!) showed off a new side to her we’ve never seen.
However, it was all part of her big plan to schmooze up to Kelsey, Lauren, and Charles.
And then she quite literally schmoozed Charles before establishing that she was “the boss’s girlfriend” to Liza.
She then had the nerve to threaten her job by saying that if she didn’t get along with her, Charles would surely fire Liza.
I’ve never thought of Charles as a fool, but he’s definitely foolish for falling for any and all of Quinn’s tricks. I mean, seriously? How does he not see through all her manipulative tactics? Men are so blind sometimes.
It’s unclear how this will affect Charles and Liza’s working relationship moving forward, or if Charles even knows that Quinn is telling everyone she’s his new girlfriend.
Maybe Empirical should just cool it on the office romances?
Liza spent the episode bonding with Kai Mannings, the surf legend, who scored a $400,000 publishing deal with Empirical.
Her job was to ensure that the book would have some of Kai’s greatest stories, and I’ll be honest, all of the ideas she pitched during their meeting were pretty great.
But Kai seemed way more interested in sleeping with her than actually working on his book, which should’ve been Liza’s tell from the start.
Instead, she was charmed by his accent, his body, and his free spirit. And since she felt so crummy about her breakup, she decided to go for it, which she immediately regretted shortly after because it turns out, Kai was kind of a womanizer.
Not only was he surfing all over the world, but his journals revealed he was also sleeping with a ton of women all over the world.
Liza just added herself to the pile.
The whole situation with Kai reminded me of Sebastian (played by Matthew Morrison), the guy who was a little too close with his sheep!
Liza and Kelsey proved, once again, that they are great at their jobs by taking Kai’s nude artwork and pitching it as a sex guide with surf terms for positions titled “The Kama Surf-tra.” Brilliant.
If there’s one thing we know for certain it’s that nudity always sells.
With this being the final season, it’s kind of annoying that the series continues creating issues for Liza and Charles instead of just letting them be happy.
After six seasons, I think the final outcome will just be that Liza chooses to love herself. It’s the only fitting outcome.
Josh and KT, the music assistant he met at this tattoo parlor, heated up pretty quickly.
And Lauren and Kelsey had a front-row seat to the show. (I’ll never unsee Hilary Duff imitating turtle orgasms!)
Josh deserves love more than anyone. He’s one of the most vulnerable characters on the series, but he’s been screwed over by romantic partners more times than anyone can count.
The bliss with KT lasted a whole half a day before she revealed that she doesn’t want any kids, which poses quite a bit of an issue for Josh and Gemma.
This relationship is bound to fizzle out before it even began!
While this episode still had that Younger magic, it’s my least favorite one this season.
Everyone — Liza, Kelsey, Josh, Charles — has to figure out what they want out of life once and for all.
The season is supposed to be the most “mature” ever, but the constant relationship drama feels like we’re just rehashing the same storylines we’ve already seen.

Younger Review – With Every Loss Comes Unexpected Opportunity (7×03)
We all know the saying: when one door closes, another opens. And that couldn’t be more true for Liza Miller.
Liza was feeling a bit down after her split from Charles, but that quickly took a turn when surf legend Kai Mannings walked through the doors of Empirical.
The duo had an immediate connection, which Charles was very much aware of.
It’s not like Liza was looking for someone else to vibe with, but things just sort of progressed throughout the episode when he wanted to get to know his potential editor on a personal level.
The duo hit it off during Empirical’s rebranding party and continued to get to know each other afterward.
Mostly, Liza loved that Kai supported her decision not to get married. He also championed it and understood her desire not to be domesticated.
Seeing Liza vibe with someone so free-spirited underscores the fact that she wasn’t ready to commit fully to the “family” unit that Charles wanted.
And that indicates that they made the right decision to break up.
I’ve mentioned in previous reviews that Liza has struggled to make up her mind when it comes to what she wants out of life. She’s flip-flopped from Charles to Josh more times than we can count, and looking at her history, it makes sense.
Liza doesn’t want to be tied down in the kind of relationship she had with her ex-husband.
It’s not clear if she’ll have a quick rendezvous with Kai or if they’ll just be good friends, but I imagine we’ll see Charles’ jealousy a lot more.
And, in turn, we’ll see Liza jealous of Quinn, who has now officially scored a book deal with Empirical.
Charles really doesn’t see how Quinn manipulates him, which is frustrating. But it was also a low blow that he signed off on the deal without waiting for any input from Liza, Kelsey, or even Lauren, who is proving to be quite an asset to the company.
And it’s even more of a low blow if he expects Liza to be Quinn’s editor considering their fraught relationship.
Liza’s outburst towards Charles was slightly overexaggerated considering he wasn’t romantically linked to or interested in Quinn while in Chicago, even if it may have seemed that way, nor did he want to end things because he had a backup option.
In fact, Charles was so quick to end things with Liza when he realized they were on different pages because he thought he never really had her whole heart.
I love that Maggie came through and informed him how sorely mistaken he was.
Will he regret his decision now when it may be too late?
Liza and Charles weren’t the only two with prospective new love interests as Josh vibed with a woman who walked into his tattoo shop and worked with celebrity Floatie V.
You’d think Liza and Josh would come rushing back to each other following the breakup, but I’m kind of digging that they’re branching out and meeting new people.
At this point, Josh seems very much friend-zoned by Liza.
As I mentioned before, Empirical is thriving with Lauren on board. She’s no Diana, but she’s really killing it in the marketing department. Charles would be a fool not to hire her permanently.
Other Stray Thoughts
- This line was something that was said out loud: “I have to drop a deuce, but I can do it here or there.”
- Zane is now the publisher of Grove Atlantic, which infuriated Kelsey enough to scream in a wine cellar with Liza. What does that mean for future episodes though? I guess we’ll find out.
