Younger – Beyond Therapy (2×08)

Published

on

It’s becoming tougher and tougher for Liza to continue lying about her age. More so, she’s starting to wonder what’s it all for. That’s what I was wondering this week after I realized, if her boyfriend was cool with it, chances are everyone else would be too. The secret has started weighing her down and it all came to a climax when she lost the love of her life as Kelsey gained hers.

Liza was blackmailed by that biatch from an opposing publishing house again and let her age get in the way of her relationship… again. The good thing – Liza is usually able to outsmart people who mean her harm and that’s exactly what she did to get Kelsey the book deal with the millenial psychologist.

After the opposing publishing house threatened to expose her to the author, Liza decided to come forward with the truth. After all, patient/doctor confidentiality. Talking to someone about her “lie” definitely helped her and the psychologist seemed pretty intrigued that a 40-year-old took a chance at her 20s again and was actually succeeding. In fact she was so impressed, she promised to sign with Millenial if Liza would agree to let her use her as a case study. And just like that, Kelsey’s imprint scored a huge deal in its first weeks of operation.

Josh also had some good news this week – he was being featured in the Times as a successful young artist. Of course Liza knew that the Times would fact check and dig up everything in his life, so she decided to keep her distance from the piece and the journalist. Josh agreed knowing how important her cover was but quickly realized his life wasn’t much without her. Sweet right? That is until the piece was printed and Kelsey was FURIOUS that Liza wasn’t mentioned at all. When Josh came to her birthday she basically tore him a new one saying that he wasn’t good enough for Liza and didn’t take the relationship seriously. It was harsh and I don’t blame him for breaking up with Liza after it (yes again) especially because she didn’t defend him at all. For someone who has a good head on her shoulders, Liza handled that very poorly. A part of me thinks she’s better keeping her secret and letting Josh go because there’s no way they can work out without fulling letting each other into their lives. Maybe deep down inside, she just doesn’t want to be with him in the long haul. It is heartbreaking though.

As for Kelsey, the psychologist made her realize that 27 was actually almost 30 and that meant she had to settle down. Was Thad the one? Kelsey liked to think so but after seeing him flirt with some girl, propose a threesome and then tell her he didn’t read her book, she broke up with him. “You need to grow up,” she said before walking out. But Thad came to his senses and proposed to her during her birthday dinner. Of course she said yes, but is this really the right move Kelsey?

What did you think of this weeks episode? Will Josh and Liza get back together? Does she deserve him or should she be with someone older? Should she tell Kelsey the truth? When will her husband find out about her hot new boyfriend? I kind of want to see how that would play out!

Younger – It’s All About the Money, Honey (6×10)

Published

Another day, another PR nightmare for Millennial.

Kelsey, Liza, and Charles visited my hometown of Chicago on Younger Season 6 Episode 10, but things weren’t exactly a breeze in the Windy City.

The trip was high-stress from the beginning as Kelsey and Charles attempted to sway their last remaining investor in to keep the company afloat.

They’re broke now, remember?

Charles took charge in the male-dominated meeting, but Kelsey flexed her publisher muscle by explaining that Millennial’s main asset is their ability to keep up with the times. Sometimes, a little too much.

There was a mention of transparency, which was worrisome considering Millennial’s lack of transparency when it came to Liza’s lie.

However, it wasn’t something the investors, all older men, would have been made privy too.

As they pointed out in the meeting, they didn’t understand the power of social media or how it could make them money, so chances are they didn’t Google to read up on Millennial’s recent hiccups.

But they got a very detailed lesson on social media courtesy of Kelsey.

After securing the funding, Kelsey and Charles’ celebrations were short-lived as they were plagued by another social media snafu, this time not one of Liza’s making.

Younger – Millennial’s Next Top Model (6×09)

Published

This season just keeps getting better and better.

Millennial, with Kelsey in tow, dealt with the aftermath of “42-gate” on Younger Season 6 Episode 9.

The publishing world was rocked by Pauline’s scandalous revelation that Liza, formerly known as 1 of 2 awesome millennial editors, was, in fact, a 42-year-old woman.

Out in the Open - Younger

The company was sinking, clients were dropping, authors were fleeting, but they didn’t have to be.

This negative reaction could have been prevented with better preparation from Team Millennial.

Since they knew the truth, they were the ones holding all the cards and should have had a contingency plan in case someone exposed Liza.

And there were plenty of people who could have potentially pulled the trigger.

Instead, they were trying to catch up with the headlines, which made it harder to change the narrative already painted about the company and its employees.

Zane was the only one with an outside perspective; he wasn’t close to Liza, he didn’t have any connection to her, nor did he owe her anything.

But his advice to fire Liza also overlooked the negative impact it would have had on the company.

Liza lied because a woman in her forties wasn’t granted the same opportunities in the workforce as a thriving woman in her 20s.

Youthfullness  - Younger Season 6 Episode 9

If they fired her, they’d only be feeding into the age discrimination that Liza was trying to combat with her illegal move in the first place.

They’d essentially be proving her point.

Zane was right in saying that Liza lied and made everyone, namely Kelsey and Charles, complicit, but he failed to acknowledge that they all knew about her lie and helped her cover it up.

They lied on her behalf, so in a way, they’re just as responsible for Millennial’s potential downfall as Liza.

Harboring a secret is equal to assisting someone in harboring said secret.

What a big, emotionally-loaded episode.

The cast of Younger wasn’t lying when they said Younger Season 6 Episode 8 was the episode we’ve all been waiting for.

If you’re not crying happy tears after Liza’s and Diana’s “I love you” exchange, you have no soul.

Catching Up - Younger

We’ve all been so focused on Younger’s love-triangle, but the magic has always been in the relationships between the female characters.

Liza’s secret unraveled at a rapid pace and by the end, we were all in a different space mentally, physically and emotionally.

For the most part, everyone was in a better, more honest place, even if Millennial is stuck going through an identity crisis.

Diana was one of the last remaining Empirical/Millennial employees who was kept in the dark about Liza’s real age, and we all wondered when and how she’d find out the truth.

I knew that when it happened that it was going to be intense, but I had no idea it would be such an emotionally raw moment.

Diana rarely wears her heart on her sleeve, but when Pauline pubically tore down Liza, she put her foot down against the alleged slander and came to her assistant’s defense.

One might say it’s wildly out of character for Diana to be so bold since we’ve never seen her defend someone so passionately, but it really wasn’t.

Diana loves her co-workers under her icy exterior and she’d do anything for them.
