No one was in their comfort zone on this week’s Younger despite trying to get hygge with it.
In addition to being forced to show off her two-step with Josh (who knew Kelsey was originally from Texas?), Kelsey was also trying to navigate her new world, which was flipped upside down when Liza dropped this truth bomb on her.
Her new normal went from having a work and real life BFF to contemplating how foolish she was to believe that the BFF, a woman who doesn’t even know what a meme is (does anyone really was), was actually a millenial. The one plus side of Kelsey finding out Liza’s secret is that we can now watch her see Liza with fresh eyes. Or in the wise words of Josh, they should have known all along because Liza = Lies. Uh. Drunk mind speaks sober thoughts.
Unsure of how to cope with the betrayal, Kelsey went looking for reassurance in all the wrong places, starting with Colin, who inserted himself right back into her life after his book received negative reviews. That coupled with a huge bathroom fight with Liza, who was just trying to give her some friendly, yet unwanted, advice, forced her to retreat back to Josh’s where they danced away the pain together.
I kept cringing every time these two got a little too close, mainly because the promos lead me to believe that they were going to hook up. It seems like the thought also crossed Liza’s mind because let’s face it, why wouldn’t two attractive and young people who were nursing broken hearts and harboring a secret only they knew about, get together?
One thing about promos? They are purposefully deceiving. Kelsey might be finding some “hygge” with Josh when it comes to dealing with Liza’s lies, he’s moving out of his comfort zone and pursuing a blonde named Montana.
No, not Hannah Montana but the coffee shop girl that Maggie mistakenly tried to make a move on back at the apartment. Apparently, her gaydar was very much off as she mistook adoration for flirtation. While Montana wasn’t into Maggie like that, she was still eager to stir her paint or stretch her canvas or whatever which is obviously a set up for her to befriend Maggie and Liza while dating Josh at the same time without a clue that there is this deeply twisted history. I do feel like Maggie’s character gets a little cheated though just for the sake of the storyline. Can we please get her a real love interest? Preferably someone fun like Lauren?
Kelsey and Josh’s struggles are nowhere as serious as Liza’s though. While they feel betrayed, Liza feels abandoned and shunned. There’s not much she can do to remedy it though, especially because coming clean to those that trust her the most is out of the question since she has to keep up appearances at work for the sake of Millennial.
And even though she’s hurt because she’s (temporarily) lost both the people she cared about, she’s experiencing mixed feelings because she’s also smitten with Charles and completely unaware. How you could be that unaware of sexual tension is beyond me. I almost felt like Kelsey was going to walk in on Liza massaging out Charles’ kink and figure out that their relationship was the reason that Josh’s proposal fell through. And that knowledge might give her the power to pursue the relationship without feeling guilty.
It’s clear that we’re at a pinnacle with Younger. It’s getting harder and harder for Liza to keep lying to her loved ones and keeping up the charade. How many times did she almost spill the beans about her ex-husband?! She’s guilty and it’s all going to erupt one day, unexpectedly, in the messiest of ways. That will set a whole new tone and dynamic for all the relationships moving forward. We already see it with Josh and Kelsey, Kelsey and Liza and Liza and Josh, but how will the rest of the characters take the truth? Will they be understanding? Will they fault her?
- I love Lauren but for the second week in a row, she’s delivered questionable lines/advice. This week, but her encouraging Kels to bring Josh to the event was terrible friend advice. Is she really that indifferent to Liza, who she knows is Kelsey’s other best friend? No fake friends.
- As “fake” as Liza was to Kelsey, she’s been nothing but a real friend, even trying to give her sound relationship advice. And coming from a woman who’s been there, done that, I’d take it. The way their friendship started may have been a lie but everything else was genuine.
- There is nothing I love more than something punny and getting hygge with it was literally everything that I needed on this Monday-est Wednesday ever. That was almost as good as Liza flirtatiously trying to massage out Charles’ spasm in his office. Seriously, Empirical is a NSFW workplace.
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
