Younger – Last Day of Books (3×03)

Published

on

You never know what will happen when you get into bed with a 26-year-old. Truer words have never been spoken Charles.

Each week when I watch Younger, I always find myself thinking, “Oh shit, how is Liza going to get out of this one.” And each week, she doesn’t get caught up in her web of lies. But one day, one glorious day, it will all come crashing down on her.

This week’s episode was fun, fresh and exciting, but Josh was in it for like .3 seconds. How dare they deprive me of that?

Liza’s two lives seemingly merge after she finds out that her hometown bookstore where she spent hours drinking coffee with her friends and talking about their husbands is closing down because of the lack of funds. In this digital age, bookstores just don’t have the lifespan anymore.

It’s happening to Empirical, who just agreed to make Bryce, a 26-year-old billionaire a shareholder in the company, to save it from failure. All is good and well until they get bad press for selling their publishing soul to the digital devil.

Liza realizes she can save two birds with one stone and Bryce agrees to donate $300,000 to Booknook so it can stay open for the next 5-years. Everyone is super excited and Charles forces Liza to get into the helicopter to hand deliver the check. The only problem? If she steps off the heli, everyone will recognize her and know she’s not actually a millenial. They do remember her with kids and a husband.

As they begin to land, Liza prepares a speech about how she’s “not who they think she is,” when suddenly, Zuckerburg donates to a bookstore with orphan employees, making Bryce look like a copy cat. The “photo op” is no longer necessary and the helicopter flies away, preserving Liza’s secret for one more week or so. Whew.

As for Kelsey, Lauren is trying to get her back out on the dating soon. Too soon? Most definitely, especially considering Kels keeps telling every single hot dude that her fiancee just died. Too much baggage for the average New York man you meet at the bar.

She leaves Lauren in the trusty hands of her old camp buddy who is also a doctor, er intern. Same thing you know. One shot leads to another and the next thing you know, they’re waking up naked next to each other. Only problem? Lauren’s totally gay… or at least she thought she was because she’s all about being different.

She brings it up to Maggie expecting her to be pissed but lets not forget, Maggie is the cool, hip lesbian who isn’t really into a committed relationship. While Lauren is pouring out her heart, she’s really just trying to shoo her out so she can get back to all the naked women she’s drizzling in paint in her living room. Safe to say, Mags will be ok and this will be quite an interesting journey for Lauren. Maybe he’s even the one?

Although I do understand Kelsey’s frustration… a guy sprains his ankle running away from her but LAUREN gets a doctor. Sometimes, life isn’t fair at all.

Other Thoughts

  • I almost lost it when Liza said she was a slut in high school to distract from the fact that she was just about to tell them her big secret.
  • It’s hilarious to see the older folks embracing new technology like crappy VR sets. Diana is the comedic gem in this series. The way she took that fall because of her vertigo – hilarious.
  • Code Bread is definitely going to be my new panic phrase. I can’t think of anything better than stuffing my face with delicious warm bread loafs when I’m on the verge of an existential crisis.
  • Liza’s stuck between two worlds but from the looks of it, she didn’t really belong with her older group of friends at book club. That was her old life. But it didn’t seem like she was 100% to be with Josh forever knowing she had to let him go, so I guess she’s going to take the advice that it was fun, but it is time for a new chapter. As much as I want to see her with Josh, I think she’s going to pick Charles.

Younger – It’s All About the Money, Honey (6×10)

Published

Another day, another PR nightmare for Millennial.

Kelsey, Liza, and Charles visited my hometown of Chicago on Younger Season 6 Episode 10, but things weren’t exactly a breeze in the Windy City.

The trip was high-stress from the beginning as Kelsey and Charles attempted to sway their last remaining investor in to keep the company afloat.

They’re broke now, remember?

Charles took charge in the male-dominated meeting, but Kelsey flexed her publisher muscle by explaining that Millennial’s main asset is their ability to keep up with the times. Sometimes, a little too much.

There was a mention of transparency, which was worrisome considering Millennial’s lack of transparency when it came to Liza’s lie.

However, it wasn’t something the investors, all older men, would have been made privy too.

As they pointed out in the meeting, they didn’t understand the power of social media or how it could make them money, so chances are they didn’t Google to read up on Millennial’s recent hiccups.

But they got a very detailed lesson on social media courtesy of Kelsey.

After securing the funding, Kelsey and Charles’ celebrations were short-lived as they were plagued by another social media snafu, this time not one of Liza’s making.

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

Published

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.

Youthfullness  - Younger Season 6 Episode 9

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.
