Hormones were racing at the speed of light on this week’s Younger, but was everyone pleased with the “hook-ups?” Not quite.
The episode picks up almost right after Charles’ blunt and steamy confession last week and if you weren’t over it, be warned, this is not doing you any favors. After a confession like that, Liza does the only logical thing – she waltzed right into his office, a hot makeout session ensues as he pushes her against the bookshelf and clothes begin flying off. As Liza’s pretty much screaming “YES, YES, YES,” we’re all screaming “NO, NO, NO” because that largely teased and highly anticipated scene was literally just. a. dream.
Liza’s left feeling all hot and bothered but thankfully, Charles took a personal day so her focus remains largely on listening to thousands of terrible pitches at Pitchfest. That face you made when you realized the hook up was a dream is literally the same face Liza is making through it all. It’s publishing hell. That is until she meets Pauline, a woman who pitches her an “in the works” book about feeling trapped in her marriage. It intrigues Liza, mainly because she can totally relate to it – she too was married to a guy who caused her to lose her identity and press pause on life. She promises to read the chapters thinking it might serve Millenial readers as a “warning guide” to “death do us part.”
Working late proves to be in Liza’s favor because Charles is also burning the midnight oil. Knowing that they can’t avoid each other forever, she finally confronts him and the first thing that comes out of her mouth is: “it’s probably hard by now,” a reference to Charles’ birthday cupcake. One thing leads to another and pretty soon, they are making out, ties are flying, buttons are coming undone and a janito walks in. Seriously people, learn to close your doors! The one moment we’ve waited patiently for has been ruined by a poor man just doing his job. waiting for is RUINED by this poor man that’s just doing his job and clearly knows something almost went down.
And things just keep going down hill when Liza shows him the new chapters from Pauline, who turns out to be his EX WIFE. What are the odds right? I’m usually pretty intuitive and can smell a storyline from a mile away but this took me by surprise, which I guess is good. Pauline, as innocent as she seemed, is definitely scheming up something bad. I’m going to guess that she knew who Liza was because Charles’ daughters talk about her a lot since they like her. She knew that Liza wouldn’t know who she was and was hoping she’d bring the chapters to Charles so he’d finally read them. And she did. Now we’ll see if he’ll pursue publishing the book and allow Liza to spearhead the editing process. Would he want to mix business with pleasure like that? It’s risky. And yet another obstacle for these two to get over before they can get under each other.
Kelsey also decided on a personal day after basically allowing Zane to steal Empirical’s biggest author from them. Running away from her problems consists of a day on the lake with Lauren and Josh and a bunch of penis decor because Younger can get away with stuff like that and we love it. But she soon realizes, you can’t run away from your problems and creates even more. Lauren made it a priority to put it out into the universe that Kelsey and Josh would hook up so naturally, they did. We all knew that the Kelsey and Josh kiss was bound to happen and fans are torn – some are all for this relationship, some think it’s way out of line. I was on the fence until I saw that brief kiss and felt my stomach churn. Liza may have deceived them but she didn’t do it out of spite and she doesn’t deserve this. Would she be fine with it? After awhile, if things worked out with Charles, I’m sure she’d come around to the idea, but honestly, it’s still a best friend and an ex and that’s a NO from me. Thankfully almost immediately after they decided to kiss, they both realized it was a terrible idea. However something tells me, it’s not completely over.
Final though – there is never enough Diana… but even when she’s there, she delivers the best offbeat one-liners proving she’s a small character with a big presence.
Thoughts? Are you a Kelsey and Josh shipper? When do you think Liza and Charles will finally get their moment? Do you think she’ll tell him the truth before it goes further? Will that ruin her chances with him?
Younger – It’s All About the Money, Honey (6×10)
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.
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)
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.
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.
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.

Younger – The Debu-taunt (6×08)
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.
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.
