Younger – A Close Shave (4×06)

"Younger" Ep. 406 (Airs 8/2, 10pm ET/PT)

Published

on


The tension on Younger could be cut with a knife this week.

If you think about it, the episodes have been building up to this very explosive, jaw-dropping and fairytale-ish moment between Liza and Charles. Seriously, what woman doesn’t want her hunk of a boss to yell at her for dating someone other than him? Okay… I admit, it sounds a lot less sexy than it was portrayed on the screen.

Basically, Charles has been keeping his feelings bottled up since the kiss that rocked Liza’s whole world. She’s been stealing wanting glances his way occasionally but for the most part, she’s been too preoccupied with Kelsey finding out her real age, her big ugly breakup with Josh and her daughter’s appendix bursting. A lot’s been happening so finally, when sh*t hit the fan, it went flying everywhere.

Things at Empirical have been kind of rocky and that’s part of the reason for Charles’ outburst. Money problems equals a tense boss. Then, to make things worse, Kelsey was involved with a viral Twitter feud with Zane and while she thought it was completely innocent and good for publicity, it ended up costing her Empirical’s biggest writer, L.P Moore. A sinking publishing house losing their moneymaker? Not good for business. At this point, no amount of puppy books will save the situation. Although really, how did two brilliant minds behind Millenium really not realize that a book about a dog would be a massive success? Have they not heard of Doug the Pug? He should totally guest star on the show after this.

And all of this on Charles’ birthday! When Liza saw how angry Charles was and how upset Kelsey was – it wasn’t just her job on the line, her heart was broken too – she went over to give her boss a piece of her mind. Why was he being so mad and making such rash decisions without finding out the truth? Charles tried to write it off as a business issue but in the heat of the moment, came the word vomit – he was angry that Liza was seeing a 40-year-old man in the publishing world and it wasn’t him.

The man Charles is referring to is Jay, the book editor she met during the wilderness retreat who offered her a job running his publishing houses’ imprint. And while the dinner date definitely didn’t look innocent considering his history of dating younger women, it was actually the total opposite of romantic – Liza was coming clean about being in her 40s after he heard Caitlyn call her “mom.” Even more surprising is that Jay was totally “cool with it”, even promising to keep Liza’s secret, not blackmail her with it (we’ll see about that…) and even told her to avoid telling her boss because it would create a scandal.

At this point, I think Jay’s right. Charles is already so frustrated, can you imagine how he would react if he found out Liza is actually his age and has been lying to him this whole time? But knowing how honest she is and how this is eating her up inside, it’ll eventually happen and we’re going to have to deal with the ugliness that comes with it.

It’s hard to believe that someone in a competing company wouldn’t want to take this news and run with it right, especially since that’s exactly what Zane did to Kelsey. The worst part is that he actually lured her into bed and kept her mind occupied while he was plotting to undermine her. It does seem like his intentions weren’t pure in the beginning but after all of it, he’s feeling guilty. Still, I would never give him the time of day again, hot bod be gone.

For now, we’re left with quite the cliffhanger. Charles was left standing there vulnerable as all hell, Liza was speechless and Diana and the rest of the company had no idea what they just walked into while singing happy birthday. Seriously, timing people. However, with the way Liza’s life has been going, things could not have turned out a different way. And maybe this will finally be the step that brings them together. And if so, how will they keep it a secret from their colleagues? After all, sleeping with the boss while you’re in an entry-level position is frowned upon as is being a boss who is crushing on the younger employee. That’s what makes it so alluring though – Liza’s attracted to the taboo. First a much younger man, now her sexy older boss. Or will they just sweep this angst and sexual tension under the rug for another rainy day. Pursuing this relationship could cost them both a lot and deep down, it’s what’s been holding them back.

Other Thoughts

  • I’m not digging these Josh-less episodes. I guess less of Liza means less of Josh… that is until he hooks up with Kelsey. But should they be each other’s rebounds?
  • Maggie’s love life is pure entertainment. I seriously almost lost it when she went in to shave this woman’s mustache. Clearly, she was super proud of it and Maggie could not be more turned off. And I love how after all of it, she comes out unscathed whereas everything about Liza’s life is dramatic. These two really balance each other out.
  • Kelsey revealed that Liza basically rewrote that one blackmailing girl’s book which is probably going to be her entryway into being that anonymous romance novel that will save Empirical and the publishing world altogether. Happy endings and happily ever’s do exist!
  • I need Diana to come to my house and hit those high notes for every birthday I have. That is all.

Why Isn’t ‘Younger’ Season 7 Returning This Summer?

Published

on

Younger Sex Liza & Rock and Roll

For six seasons, Younger has been my favorite summer series. Liza’s love life feels like an endless summer romance, so while the series, which premiered in March of 2015, didn’t start off as a summer staple, it’s transformed into one with the past three seasons all premiering in June. 

The lighthearted half-hour sitcom finds Liza Miller, a 40-year-old woman struggling to to re-enter the world of publishing after hiatus. When she keeps getting shown the door, she devises a plan to pretend that she’s 26, and her lie takes her on quite an adventure.

The series is fun and flirty, giving you the kind of vibe you want during the summer months. 

And as the weather heats up, so do Liza’s relationships as she’s caught between composed and accomplished, Charles, and free-spirited, Josh.

However, there’s no sign of season 7 of Younger anywhere, and that’s because, it isn’t coming this summer.

The ‘Lizzie McGuire’ Revival Only Succeeds If It’s a Mature, Authentic Reflection of Adult Life

Despite being renewed for a seventh season on July 2019, the series hasn’t even begun production on the upcoming season.

If production hadn’t been derailed due to the coronavirus pandemic and the subsequent shutdowns, the series would have likely finished filming in time for a July premiere.

Debi Mazar (Maggie) told ET  that the series was set to have their first table read on the season on March 24 with production kicking off on March 30, which is around the time all TV show and film productions shut down. 

While it’s unclear when production may resume, Mazar said they are eyeing August or September, which would push the series back to a 2021 premiere likely in January.

All of this means that we’re going to be waiting a lot longer than intended to get an answer to that season 6 cliffhanger — will Liza Miller accept Charles’ proposal or will she’ll decide that her heart still pines for Josh?

Season 7 HERE WE COME! #YoungerTV

And can the series ever move on from the love triangle? Do we even want it to?

While Younger season 7 would have been a great escape for all of us who have been cooped up at home and hoping to get lost in Liza and Kelsey’s world’s again, we’re just going to have to exercise some patience. 

The summer won’t be the same without the series, but don’t lose all hope. As you look for your upcoming summer shows to watch, you can check out our list here! 

And be sure to add The Bold Type to your list as it returns for the latter half of season 4 on June 11.

Sexy and Steamy TV Shows to Watch During ‘The Bachelor’ Hiatus

Shows to Watch During The Bachelor Hiatus

With The Bachelor taking a hiatus (well, until their spinoff Listen to Your Heart premieres in April), you need to fill that reality TV dating void in your heart with some shows that are equally as hot and steamy.

While there are plenty of choices to make from the Bachelor franchise, if you’re looking to shake things up the same way Peter Weber did on his season, we suggest these shows!

 

What/If

Young scientist Lisa is strapped for cash and needs it to fund a life-changing project when Anne Montgomery (Oscar-winner Renée Zelwegger) approaches her with an offer she can’t refuse: one night alone with her husband. The only condition: she cannot ask what happened.

Grand Hotel

The telenovela lasted only one season before ABC canceled it, but it was a sizzlin’ drama focused on a forbidden love story and a who-dun-it murder mystery. Two of our favorite things.

Younger

Liza, a 40-year-old single-mom struggles to re-enter the working world. But when she meets a 26-year-old guy who believes she’s his age, it all becomes so clear as she fakes her age, gets a publishing job, and gets a second shot at her crazy 20s… that is until people start figuring out her secret that she’s trying desperately to protect.

 

The Bold Type

Fashion meets sex on The Bold Type. Three besties — Kat, Sutton, and Jane — are living their best lives in New York City and working for a fashion magazine, Scarlett. As they “push the envelope” in their career, they’re also doing it in their daily life as they find themselves, have plenty of sexual experiences, and learn how to be comfortable in their own bodies while feeling as lost as most millennials do.

Good Girls

Sisters Beth and Annie and best friend Ruby get fed up with playing by the rules and constantly losing, so they get a crazy idea to rob a grocery store. One illegal decision suddenly lands them in hot water and starts a dangerous life of crime and even a crime of passion with one sexy “gang friend.”

The Affair

The series explores the emotional and psychological effects of two affairs. Newlyweds Alison and Cole are experiencing problems in their marriage and she finds solace in the arms of Noah, a teacher vacationing at his in-laws’ Hamptons estate with his family. What starts off as a summer affair quickly becomes much more complicated.

True Blood

Described as the “adult Twilight” and the more intense version of  The Vampire Diaries when it first came out, Sookie Stackhouse, an oddball at school who can read minds, falls for a 173-year-old vampire named Bill Compton. Bill and his vamp clique have joined the land of the living after a new synthetic blood allows vampires to survive without human blood. Sex, lust, and bloodlust all fuel this HBO series.

Elite

A private school in Spain becomes the scene of a murder brought on by a clash between the rich and the poor. The murder mystery begins as no one knows who’s responsible, and there’s a lot of sexual tension between the good looking students that leads the storyline.

Reality TV Shows

Love Island

In the same vein as many other dating reality shows, Love Island brings together a cast of hot singles ready for love and romance that’s fueled on by warm weather on the island and a grand prize of £50,00o.

 

Married at First Sight

The title of the series is pretty self-explanatory, but in the case that it needs to be explained, a group of strangers looking for love get married to a complete stranger the first time they lay eyes on him/her. They’re paired up with the help of a spiritualist, a relationship coach, and a sociologist who use “scientific matchmaking methods.” The remainder of the season documents their honeymoon and life after marriage. Following several weeks, the couple gets the option of staying together or splitting up. 

 

Are You The One?

The tagline of this series is my favorite: if your perfect match was standing in front of you, would you know? A group of singles tries to find their soulmate using a dating algorithm that processes a ton of information including a compatibility test. It then pairs the couples it thinks have the highest chance of success, but it’s kept from the participants who instead mingle for weeks and try to find their ideal significant other. If they choose the wrong person, they start over, if they don’t, well, love and money are involved.

Love is Blind

The Netflix series is a new kind of dating experiment that finds strangers meeting via cubes and falling in love without ever seeing each other. The whole idea is to remove looks from the equation and find your soulmate based on connection alone. If finding someone you vibe with is successful in the pods, the couples get engaged, have a honeymoon in Mexico, and walk down the aisle a few weeks later. Who will say yes? And who will walk away?

Younger Season 6 Report Card: Best & Worst Moments!

Published

on

Liza takes on New York City after modeling for Infinitely 21 on 'Younger.'

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.

 

Funniest Moment

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
