Younger – Get Real (3×12)

“I just don’t understand what happened” Kelsey said to Liza as they were checking out from their unsuccessful vacation in the Hampton’s. Kelsey was well aware of the proposal happening but so unaware of the other messed up stuff going on like Liza’s real age and that the proposal didn’t happen because she made out with her boss. That’s when it clicked for Liza too – Josh saw her lock lips with Charles.

Back in New York, a distraught Liza tried her best to get in touch with Josh but he was MIA. Can ya blame him? He put his heart on the line for her and ended up seeing the woman he loves cheat on him. Low blow.

And if that wasn’t enough to bring Liza down, Empirical was looking to score a book deal with a motivation speaker who was really good at telling people to “get real” about what they wanted out of life. Liza and Kels attended a seminar and turns out, Liza’s heartbroken ex-husband was also in attendance. He got pulled up on stage and began talking about how his ex-wife who he was still in love with was out living this teenage life and dating a younger man and completely abandoning all family responsibilities. Not David can really talk  because he’s the reason their marriage fell apart; he cheated and he had a gambling problem.

The speaker encourages David to call his ex-wife right then and there so of course Liza books it into the bathroom. There she is confronted by both of them and comes to a shocking realization – she’s actually in love with Josh. It isn’t just a hook up for her and she isn’t using him either, she’s just in love. But being hurt so badly before, she’s self destructive and sabotaging a good thing before it hurts her. And can we blame Liza? At her age, dating a younger man is pretty scary and you never know when he’ll leave you for a younger woman or blame you for screwing up the best years of his life.

With that realization, Liza texts Josh who allows her to “come over.” She tries to explain that she made a huge mistake but realized she’s actually in love with him but he wasn’t ready to hear it. Listening to Josh really made me sad because well, he had a point. He accepted that she was older, he accepted her daughter, who is in college, he accepted her ex-husband and he accepted that she didn’t want kids. “I chose you,” he exclaimed. And in that moment, it was pretty clear – Liza hadn’t done much for him in return. It was always about her.

Then came the real kicker – Josh called her a “liar and a cheater” who didn’t realize her lies were hurting everyone around her. With that, he reluctantly kicked her out. Sad part is that it’s all true. We like Liza so we’re rooting for her – how can you not, this woman has been through a lot and for the most part, lied in order to get her life back on track. But at the same time, she’s doing exactly the same thing her husband did to her.

At her lowest, she trudged home to cry to Maggie only to find a heartbroken Kelsey, who lost Colin’s love as quickly as she’d lost his book. Damn that Pippa! Before Kels was even able to vent about what was going on in her life, Liza hit her with the truth bomb. “This is my daughter, Caitlyn. She’s in college,” she said. “And I’m not 26, I’m going to be 41 in a few weeks,” she added.

“I don’t understand,” Kelsey replied.

“Then let me explain,” Liza answered.

Powerful words considering Josh never let her explain. And in order for anyone to understand why Liza did what she did, she needed to explain from the beginning.

Things just GOT REAL and the writers weren’t lying – this changes everything. We’ve all been preparing ourselves for this moment, so has Liza. She knew she had to come clean eventually. The question is – will everyone be as forgiving as Josh was when he found out? Will she keep her job? Or will she be down in the dumps worse than when we first met her in episode 1?

Other Thoughts

  • I’m sure Kelsey feels betrayed by everyone around her. Colin “paused” their relationship because after Netflix reached out for a series deal, he let it get to his head and didn’t want love to get in the way of success. Meanwhile Lauren betrayed her by allowing her new Jewish med doctor to move in and not even asking Kels if it was ok. At this point, the only person she has in her screwed up life dynamic is Liza.
  • Surprisingly, things are going well for Diana. She posed nude for her new man, who she’s also living with. Her parrot also learned a few words…. all the ones she screamed during the best “sex” ever with Richard, which Elpheba politely re-enacted in front of a bunch of kids and Charles. Oh boy.
  • As for Charles, last we saw, he told Liza he was fond of her but wouldn’t be getting in the middle of happy couple again. Although really too late and I swear we’ve heard that before from him. Will things change when he finds out Liza is actually his age and that’s why they get along so well?

What is going through your mind after that Younger finale?

Younger Season 6 Report Card: Best & Worst Moments!

Published

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

Younger Season 6 Season finale review

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.

On Younger Season 5, she was ready to leave Josh alone and embrace her relationship with Charles.
How did we stray so far from that realization? Why did we lose sight of all the magic Liza and Charles had?

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 Review

“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.

And she can’t deny that being with Charles reminds her of being married and suffocated, which is the first thing that came to mind after her confrontation with Josh.

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.
