Younger – Jersey, Sure (2×05)

Published

What’s worse? Lying about your age or being a middle-aged woman living fantasies through your friends? In my opinion, Liza is living the dream and has it all figured out. So obviously when he runs into her old “Jersey” friends, she’s not really thrilled to be invited to dinner with her hot “boy toy.”

Josh is really set on making his relationship with Liza work so he jumps at the occasion to meet some of her old friends and get to know the Liza from New Jersey… even if they keep screaming “truffle butter” all over the place. Honestly, don’t google it if you don’t know what it means.

During the dinner, Liza’s friend went from vicariously living through Liza to scolding her about being a “girl in love with a boy.” I guess it’s okay to use a younger man for your sexual pleasures but to consider a real relationship with him would be foolish. I kind of see where she’s coming from – Liza is a good 15 years older and she doesn’t want (nor can she have) anymore kids. What happens when Josh does? Or when she does get older looking? Will he leave her and find someone younger like Ashton did with Demi? Low blow, by the way.

To cope with the fact that her relationship might have a time limit, Liza eats the whole “lolli-pot” that she forbid Josh from eating. Honestly, Liza is fun when she’s just being herself. She’s better when she’s drunk, but she’s INCREDIBLE when she’s high. And seeing how confused her “old” friends were and how caring Josh was was definitely the highlight of the episode.

And here’s your lesson from tonight – social media allows people to stalk other people. Duh. When Liza’s daughter added Josh on Instagram, all of her old friends who knew Liza as the “middle aged mom” were now let inside her Brooklyn life where people only knew her as a 28-year-old gal. Definitely something to worry about in terms of keeping your cover. Oh what a tangled web we’ve weaved.

As for Kelsey, she’s in a bit of a pickle herself with her wild child of an author. After literally stalking her down to get the pages from the book, she told Kelsey that there is and will never be a book. Look, I’m not familiar with the publishing world but how did Kelsey sign an author who didn’t have a book readily available? And for such a huge advance? And if there is no book, why can’t she just take back the advance? Sure, she’s spending it all but there is a contract in place right? Regardless, it was fun to see Kelsey run amok all over town trying to save her job. Bitches be ruthless!

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.
