Younger – Last Day of Books (3×03)

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 Season 6 Report Card: Best & Worst Moments!

Published

on

Liza takes on New York City after modeling for Infinitely 21 on 'Younger.'

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.

 

Funniest Moment

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 Season 6 Season finale review

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.

On Younger Season 5, she was ready to leave Josh alone and embrace her relationship with Charles.
How did we stray so far from that realization? Why did we lose sight of all the magic Liza and Charles had?

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 Review

“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.

And she can’t deny that being with Charles reminds her of being married and suffocated, which is the first thing that came to mind after her confrontation with Josh.

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.
