A kiss is just a kiss… unless it means more. In the season 3 premiere of Younger, Liza was kissing two men and it meant something with both of them.
I didn’t realize how much I missed Younger speaking to my life as a millenial. I know Liza is in her 40s and just pretending to be 26, but she really gets this life I’m living now.
And as someone with what I would like to imagine is kind of an old soul, I understand Liza’s struggle between Josh and Charles. How could you not? Both of them are so alluring and life-impacting in their own way. Josh is the young guy who breathes fresh air into Liza while showing her things she never imagined she’s experience at this age. But Charles, he’s like fine wine – better with age. She can connect with him on an intellectual level and that’s hot. And have you SEEN the way he looks at her? I’m more impressed with the fact that she’s able to keep her hands off him at work.
This season will be a continuation of Liza’s struggle between two men and her walking the line of being a good friend and a good employee, while still keeping her secret. With each episode, it’s proving to be more difficult, especially as she becomes kind of a socialite.
After that kiss at the department store, Charles proposed that the two meet at a classy restaurant to talk it out. Liza blew off Josh in order to make the so-called date, which definitely says that she’s interested. Unfortunately, when she got there, she saw Charles chatting with Rose’s parents – a couple she met that morning while shipping her daughter off to college. Her grown daughter. There was no way Liza could go in there without her cover being blown, so she blew off the date. To Charles that simply meant “i’m not interested” and he blew her off by saying “it was just a kiss, let it go.” We know you don’t really mean that dude.
Instead of a hot date, Liza ended up meeting Kelsey to help take care of a drunk Diana. Who drinks straight up vodka on a work night… or ever? Gross. Despite Diana’s drunkenness, her intentions were good as she realized Kelsey was staying late at work to avoid the loneliness. The end of the night however ended up in her sleeping in spanx and throwing her wedding dress out the window, only to find a hobo wearing in the next day. I’d expect nothing less from Diana and definitely recognize that hungover look she had the next day.
As for Kelsey, it will be interesting to see how she moves and into a character that isn’t relying on a shitty man. She finally admitted what we all knew – she wasn’t devastated about Thad’s death, she was relieved. She was only marrying him to prove everyone wrong about their relationship and it wasn’t fair to either of them. With that realization, I hope she finds a HOT and WORTHY guy? Liza can’t have all of them!

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.
