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 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.
