Younger – A Book Fair To Remember (3×11)

Published

on

A book fair in the Hampton’s is definitely one to remember… especially when you hook up with your hot boss.

The one hour winter finale of Younger brought the heat and it did NOT disappoint.

Liza continued to be stuck in a moment of her 26-year-old life this week; she wanted to be with Josh but she didn’t want to hold him back and now that she knew he wanted kids and she didn’t, she wasn’t sure if she should break out with him. Definitely a dilemma you don’t see every 40-year-old having.

Instead of dealing with the problem, she escaped for a mini-vacation to the Hampton’s for a book fair. Not talking to Josh for a few days would help her clear her head and the ocean waves would help her find a solution right?

Not exactly… things in the Hampton’s went south quickly.

First off she ran into Emily from EW who seemed sweet on the surface but showed her true colors when no one would publish her doggy self-help book. Knowing Liza’s real age, she used that as leverage and threatened to tell Kelsey if she didn’t get her a book deal with Empirical. The bad part – Kelsey was 100% against signing Emily so Liza took it upon herself to do it anyways when Kelsey snuck out of the party to spend time with Colin, who was supposed to be at the competing publisher’s party celebrating his book signing.

Feeling pretty down, Liza ran into Charles on her way home and when they saw a Berlin, an “old band, playing at the bar across the street, they decided to stop by. There were a few moments here where Liza seemed to be completely herself and actually embrace her age, without actually revealing it, although she was close. When the band sang “her babysitter’s prom song” “Take My Breath Away” she gave into the moment and kissed Charles.

Now, I am firmly #TeamJosh but can see the allure of Charles. Liza is conflicted because well at this point, she’s two different people. She’s good for Josh when she’s pretending to be 26-year-old Liza, who has kind of become her dominant personality. But at times, wise and put together 41-year-old Liza shines through and that’s when she connects with Charles on sophisticated things like old bands, books, plays, etc. Plus they’ve had an attraction for so long, it was bound to happen.

Unfortunately, it happened again in front of Liza’s hotel room…. where Josh came to surprise her. Of course he walked in on the make-out sesh and dissapeared without being noticed, his heart crushed into a million pieces. The situation was bad but it was bad x 100 because Josh was there to PROPOSE to Liza. I mean he wrote out “Marry Me” in rose petals on the bed. How romantic!!!

While she was busy trying to “find herself” and rendezvousing with her boss, he was in New York realizing that he was completely in love and missing her every minute. So while I can understand Liza’s heart pulling her in both directions, I have to feel for Josh – he gave it his all and got completely crushed by a woman he accepted OVER and OVER again. (More on that in part 2!)

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

Published

on

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.

Younger Merger, She Wrote Review

Someone pass the tissues because Younger Season 6 Episode 6 had me in tears from both laughing and crying.

What a work out in 23 minutes!

The mix of a comedic and heartfelt made this the best episode to date.

My expectations were high after seeing Peter Hermann and Nico Tortella tease the episode as the one “we’ve always wanted to happen.”

And the moment I heard the words retreat, I knew it was going to go down.

All of the craziest things have happened at retreats and that was when microdosing (taking small amounts of drugs) wasn’t involved.

Add drugs and the fact that Liza’s there with her ex and a current boyfriend who she’s feuding with, well, what could go wrong?

I don’t condone the use of drugs, but man, it was so hilarious to see her hallucinating.

There was no shortage of funny moments: Josh and Charles merged into one person, Charles spoke using Josh’s voice, and Liza danced with a plant.

That last one is going down as one of the show’s most iconic moments.

While I’m not a fan of continuing the love triangle, if we have to endure it, this was the most interesting way to go about it.

With the added layer of not-LCD, my interest was piqued.

What would come of their heightened reality, open mind, and unlocked unconsciousness?

Apparently, the only realization that Liza had was that she’s still torn between Josh and Charles. Go figure.

Now, I’m in no way complaining about Liza’s dance routine because they got to incorporate Sutton Foster’s real-life talents into it in a way that felt authentic and fun to the story, but I wish her altered state allowed her to finally settle for one.

Flipping between Josh and Charles in bed was great, but at some point, the show has to reign in on one and let the other one go.

At this point, I don’t even care which guy she ends up with, I just can’t keep bouncing back-and-forth.

Especially because it does seem like Josh has finally accepted Liza’s new relationship and even bonded with Charles while she was otherwise occupied.

After the retreat, Charles mentioned that he had a good chat with Josh, which convinced him to fight for his family at Millennial.
