Younger – Like A Boss (2×03)

"Younger" (Ep. 203 - Airs January 20, 2016)

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!

Brownie points to this weeks episode for mentioning how crappy our society is for eating kale and

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

Younger Season 6 Report Card: Best & Worst Moments!

Published

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.
