Younger – The Good Shepherd (2×09)

Published

on

Liza fell for a shepherd on this weeks Younger and it ended baaa-dly for her. Sorry, I had to.

Seriously, this was hands down the weirdest episode to date. Liza was baking and dealing with the aftermath of her breakup with Josh when the show kicked off. As you recall, last week, Josh was a superstar in the local magazine which didn’t mention anything about his girlfriend. When Kelsey called him out on it, Liza refused to correct her making him realize that keeping her age a secret was more important than their relationship. He def had every right to break up with her.

Kels and Lauren decided to put Liza on Tinder, but obviously one of her matches was Josh, who she swiped left on. So that meant, Liza had to get out of the house and do something middle aged for a hot minute – like go to the flea market and buy a blanket from some rugged, hipster looking dude who said he lived out in a farm and raised sheep.

For some reason, the simplicity of that all really appealed to Liza and she liked him even more after reading some of his pamphlets. Yes, she decided he would be worth signing off of a pamphlet. When was the last time you read a pamphlet? Exactly! Anyways, she creepily travels out of town and finds his barn, where she persuades him to sign with Empirical. And what do you know, turns out Sebastian (that’s his name) already wrote a book in his spare time herding sheep. So Liza drags him back to the big city where she introduces him to Diana and Kelsey who agree, he’s worth signing.

At dinner that night, she awkwardly runs into Josh who is on a date with Greta, the girl responsible for his magazine article. I don’t know what’s weirder the fact that Josh and Liza are still “friends” or that they’re both seriously actually dating after this. Was any of it real?

Caught up in all the hoopla, Liza forgets to make Sebastian sign the papers so the next day, she’s back at the barn. This time, she even locks lips with the lumbersexual hunk so then she forgets to make him sign the papers again. When she comes back to the farm she can’t seem to find Sebastian and then BAM – she finds him screwing the sheep. I mean literally, WHAT? Who even thought of writing this into the show and WHY?! For the love of god why? Sebastian claims he was grooming the sheep but I swear, I was more horrified than Liza was. Ah!

So just like that Empirical lost a potential author, Liza a new potential mate and Sebastian, well, his dignity.

As for Kelsey, she was basking in her engagement to Thad and even though Liza was skeptical of it, she wasn’t going to take away from the magic. But she was curious why no one was liking her ring picture? Everyone always likes a ring picture. Then she noticed it’s because Thad didn’t accept her status change so no one really knew who she was engaged to. Thad, who I still think is a scumbag, said he was holding off so that he could tell people, namely his parents. I think he just wanted to squeeze in a few more romps before sealing the deal. But in the end, Kelsey convinced him and they were both on the same page. Maybe there’s hope for them after all?

Younger – Millennial’s Next Top Model (6×09)

Published

on

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.

Out in the Open - Younger

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.

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.

Catching Up - Younger

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.

Younger Merger, She Wrote Review

Someone pass the tissues because Younger Season 6 Episode 6 had me in tears from both laughing and crying.

What a work out in 23 minutes!

The mix of a comedic and heartfelt made this the best episode to date.

My expectations were high after seeing Peter Hermann and Nico Tortella tease the episode as the one “we’ve always wanted to happen.”

And the moment I heard the words retreat, I knew it was going to go down.

All of the craziest things have happened at retreats and that was when microdosing (taking small amounts of drugs) wasn’t involved.

Add drugs and the fact that Liza’s there with her ex and a current boyfriend who she’s feuding with, well, what could go wrong?

I don’t condone the use of drugs, but man, it was so hilarious to see her hallucinating.

There was no shortage of funny moments: Josh and Charles merged into one person, Charles spoke using Josh’s voice, and Liza danced with a plant.

That last one is going down as one of the show’s most iconic moments.

While I’m not a fan of continuing the love triangle, if we have to endure it, this was the most interesting way to go about it.

With the added layer of not-LCD, my interest was piqued.

What would come of their heightened reality, open mind, and unlocked unconsciousness?

Apparently, the only realization that Liza had was that she’s still torn between Josh and Charles. Go figure.

Now, I’m in no way complaining about Liza’s dance routine because they got to incorporate Sutton Foster’s real-life talents into it in a way that felt authentic and fun to the story, but I wish her altered state allowed her to finally settle for one.

Flipping between Josh and Charles in bed was great, but at some point, the show has to reign in on one and let the other one go.

At this point, I don’t even care which guy she ends up with, I just can’t keep bouncing back-and-forth.

Especially because it does seem like Josh has finally accepted Liza’s new relationship and even bonded with Charles while she was otherwise occupied.

After the retreat, Charles mentioned that he had a good chat with Josh, which convinced him to fight for his family at Millennial.
