Honestly, this weeks Younger was super bizarre and had me teeter tottering on the verge of “omg, Josh is totally going to find out her secret.”
Liza gets a phone call from her daughter while sleeping over at Josh’s house. She picks up in the bathroom low key & her daughter tells her her that dad’s half of the tuition never came in. This has her scrambling to collect $1,800 to pay for her daughter’s time overseas. During the convo, she says ‘I love you pumpkin’ and Josh totally overhears, which sends him down the path of wondering why Liza has been acting so strange. Stranger than usual anyways.
To get the money, Liza tries some questionable jobs, including selling her dirty underwear online. Honestly, is that a real thing and why? She realizes she’s not cut out for the profession when some creepy dude at the coffee shop doesn’t pay her but totally takes a sniff. Gross.
After that, she takes up cocktail waitressing where she runs into the guy from work that Diana is crushing on. He’s trying to get back on the horse after a divorce, something Liza knows a lot about, but can’t admit too. They kind of hit it off and you know this is going to become a huge problem in more ways then one. First, she’s dating Josh, which may or may not be a fling but I’m totally shipping them. Second, her boss is in love with this guy so yeah, she’ll totally get fired and they’ve got a good thing going. Third, she’ll blow her cover or at least she’ll have to if she really wants a relationship. Unfortunately (and I hate to say this) he’s probably the guy she’ll end up with because common sense tells me, she can’t pull this charade off for long and Josh will not be cool with the fact that she lied to him.
She doesn’t make any money waitressing because she spills the whole tray of drinks on the app creator. Yikes…. The next day she runs into Charles at the office and Diana notices they’ve got some “inside jokes” so she questions Liza. She’s totally honest with her boss saying she was doing extra jobs because she needed the money to pay off loans. Ok, so maybe not 100% honest. Diana does something really shocking though, which proves she actually fancies Liza; she gifts her a check for $1,800 and tells her to count it as an early holiday bonus. Seriously, where do these people get such cool bosses?
Kelsey on the other hand is whoring around the city with her author Anton. He’s not being discreet at all about their love affair, even sticking his hands up her skirt in the office. Naughty much? We all know this isn’t going to turn out good for either of them since their both in relationships. It was fun while it lasted right?
Thankfully, at the end of the episode, Liza is straight up with Josh about her panty enterprise and the two of them are back on track… at least for now. Josh is the perfect boyfriend for a 26-year-old. Tattoo artist, in a band, that’s got washboard abs. Where can I find me one of him?
Younger Season 6 Report Card: Best & Worst Moments!
Younger had some great moments and some less than great moments on Younger Season 6.
On a broad level, the storylines weren’t as fleshed out as they should have been, plenty of story arcs got condensed for the sake of time, the characters weren’t as empowered, and the love triangle got pushed so heavily, both Team Josh and Team Charles teams were over it by the finale episode.
But the magic that made Younger the fresh, inspiring, and addictive show is still there hidden under all of that.
We’re looking back at the best, worst and funniest moments of Season 6.
Most Frustrating Thing About the Season
The love triangle.
We all dug the Charles vs. Josh conundrum in the show’s early days, but we can all agree that Liza’s indecisiveness is tiring.
The best thing that can happen come Season 7 is for Liza to make a choice and stick to it.
There’s never a shortage of funny moments on Younger.
Ironically, two of the funniest moments involved vaginas: Maggie sticking garlic up hers to get rid of a yeast infection delivered plenty of laughs on Younger Season 6 Episode 4 as did Lauren getting her private parts stuck to an ice sculpture on Younger Season 6 Episode 12.
But my personal favorite was Liza’s micro-dosing experience.
On Younger Season 6 Episode 6, Liza hallucinated Charles and Josh morphing into one person — it would make things easier for her — and then ballroom danced with both men when in reality, she was dancing with a plant

Younger – Forever (6×12)
Usually, proposals call for a celebration. Usually.
On Younger Season 6 Episode 12, that couldn’t be further from the truth.
Charles’ proposal couldn’t have come at a worse time, and it drastically underlined how differently he and Liza viewed their relationship.
His speech before the proposal was heartfelt and genuine; Charles has fallen madly in love with Liza and only has eyes for her.
But Liza’s eyes and heart have been wandering for several episodes now. She’s not as fully committed to this relationship as Charles is, and that’s a damn shame.
Viewers have been frustrated with the back and forth that’s been happening all season long.
There was hope that by the season finale, Liza would make up her mind and move on from this nonsense.
Pick Charles, pick Josh, pick no one, but be an adult and make a decision, Liza.
Kelsey said it best: they’re no longer looking back.
Even Charles’ proposal is pushing for her to make a decision and commit to it.
If Younger Season 6 was about Liza owning up to her lie and accepting her truth, then Younger Season 7 needs to be about Liza deciding to be the grown woman that she is.
Unless Liza is into polygamy, there’s no way she can have them both.
There has to be a sacrifice for any of this to be worth it.
Liza’s indecisiveness becomes even more frustrating when you consider that everything has been leading up until this very moment.
Liza and Charles had chemistry from day one, and despite her other relationships and obstacles, they kept being drawn to each other.
The set-up was perfect: their song was playing (though the magic wasn’t there anymore), they were in the moment at a wedding, and there was talk of their future and blending their families.
Yet, Liza keeps holding onto a memory of what once was for reasons unknown.
They all deserve better, but after that speech, oh, that speech, Charles deserves so much more.
Charles is a gentleman who is thinking of the bigger picture, and Liza is acting worse than a teenager.
Younger – Holding Out for a Shero (6×11)
“You wrote a letter to the wrong guy.”
That statement at the end of Younger Season 6 Episode 11 oozed so much truth.
And it’s also incredibly sad. My heart sank when Josh said those words as it revealed just how much he still loves Liza.
Liza’s love triangle keeps getting messier, and though she tried to make a choice and wrote Josh a “Dear John” letter hoping to cut ties with him and focus on her new squeeze, Charles, she opened up a can of emotions instead.
As a fan who has been pushing towards a resolution to this drawn-out triangle, I applaud Liza’s efforts for wanting to give her new relationship a shot but clearly, there are feelings that keep pulling her back to her ex-boyfriend despite being “content” with Charles.
Because at this point, that’s just what it is.
Team Charles fans have waited so long for Liza and Charles to get together, and the moment they did, their chemistry died off and things became mundane.
Since she’s gotten with Charles, Josh has always been lurking there subconsciously.
She wasn’t even able to justify her reasons for Charles being the one; there’s nothing sweep-me-off-my-feet romantic about dating someone because they’re your peers and age-appropriate.
After everything she’s been through to get to this point, Liza doesn’t need to go back to how things used to be.
The tension has been building up between Liza and Josh for a while, but this was the confrontation Josh fans needed.
He needed to call her out on her bullshit.
