Younger – Like A Boss (2×03)

Published

on

Fashion, negative social media comments, hot parties, ghosting boyfriends and panic attacks – that is the life of a millenial (and Kelsey Peters) nowadays! And that’s what Kelsey Peters and Liza dealt with on this weeks Younger.

Josh is very wishy-washy this season when it comes to Liza. I get it – finding out your girlfriend was lying about her age and she’s really a 40-year-old woman is intense. I wouldn’t blame him for dipping out of the relationship. What I do have a problem with is how he’s going in and out of the relationship. We’re on the third episode of the 2nd season and I can’t tell you how many times they’ve “stopped talking” or “gone on a break.” Heck, Liza doesn’t even know the status of their relationship and honestly, no matter how hot he is, why would a woman want that. Okay… Josh is REALLY hot.

When he finds out that Liza didn’t tell Kelsey the truth, he tells her he needs some time and ends up “ghosting her.” Rude. Liza throws herself into work because lets be honest, she’s now 2 people at Empirical… 3 when you count the double life she’s leading to begin with.

Kelsey decides to throw a huge launch party for the millenial chapter and invite a ton of really hip and poppin’ bloggers and digital people including the Fat Jewish. Instagram followers are everything Diana – get back into your crypt. (Seriously, best one-liner of the night.) The first order of business – finding something to wear.

Lauren hooks Kels and Liza up with some cutting edge designers that are too fab for this world but unfortunately, they dress Kelsey something Mars threw up. That doesn’t help the fact that the minute the news hit the public, people were bashing on Kelsey’s qualifications, including comments like “who did she sleep with this time.” Fair but also a low blow. Haters gunna hate Taylor Swift always says.

All of that leads to a HUGE panic attack during the party. Who can blame her? This is a lot to take on and she’s not really getting much support. Thankfully, she has friends that she can lean on and that will literally pick her up from the floor and cut her out of her dress. And also, Liza spoon feeds her the speech via bluetooth. (I’ve never noticed how many motherly qualities Liza possess until this weeks episode.) I swear, Diana overlooks Liza for all the work that she does. She’s pretty much the glue holding everything together at Empirical!

Thankfully, Charles doesn’t. It may have something to do with the fact that he’s totally INTO Liza, but he knew she was the one responsible for Kelsey’s great speech. Charles asks about Liza’s “young man” to which she replies, “I don’t know if there is a young man anymore.” But she’s so wrong.

At that moment, prince charming shows up and apologizes for being a ghost. Thanks to Maggie (who was totally having a sex party at the apartment. Seriously, New York!), he realized that his actions were pretty juvenile and if he wanted to be with a real woman, he’d have to act like an adult. And the adult thing to do is to accept Liza’s choice about lying to Kelsey and everyone at work. At least he knows the truth right?

It was also nice to see Josh and Charles finally meet. Josh seemed a little intimidated by Charles because hey, homie is not bad looking either. It’s nice foreshadowing, considering we know Josh and Liza will definitely break up again (he’s not that mature yet!) and Liza will pursue her hot boss. It’s just the circle of life!

What did you think of this weeks Younger? Should Liza tell Kelsey about her age? Should she dump Josh?

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.

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.

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.
