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