Younger – The Marshmallow Experiment (2×03)

Published

on

Opportunist, sociopath, disturbed individual. Well, at least now we know what Liza’s co-workers were to think about her if she finally did tell them the truth that she’s actually a 40-year-old woman pretending to be 26.

Liza teeter tattered with the usual this week on Younger – should she tell her BFF Kelsey the truth? All of this stemming from the fact that Kelsey got back Thad’s computer and was able to crack the password. Liza was scared she’d see his secret file on her and find out that she’s been lying this whole time. But as usual, something changed Kelsey’s mind, and by something I mean the fact that Thad was a complete D, and Liza’s secret was safe once again.

More intriguing to me however is this awkwardness between Liza and Charles. Charles was considering giving Liza a chance but when she turned him down for drinks, made HER believe she was crazy by reading too much into that kiss. Liza tried to play it off and still act her usual flirty way with him but he wasn’t having it. In fact, Diana hadn’t seen him in this kind of mood since his divorce. It’s clearly unsettling for Liza, who has kind of gotten used to the fact that everyone adores her. Really, if she could date both of them, she probably would. She’s stringing Josh along but not actually “committing to him” and using the fact that he didn’t mention her in his magazine article last season as the reason why she can’t just bounce back into the relationship. But that’s an excuse – she’s really riding it out because she’s curious to see what would happen if Charles were to pursue her again. In fact that’s why she went to meet him up at the bar last week isn’t it?

But this episode also provides an interesting moment where Liza truly believes and feels like she’s 26. Empirical is hoping to sway an investor, a young, nerdy and rich millenial, who really doesn’t have much to do with his money. Both Kelsey and Liza are the reason his decision is to invest in the old publishing house because he loves that it’s got input from young women who are the future.

In fact, he tells them to ditch the “oldies” meaning Diana and Charles and invites them to a billionaire rooftop party. In true celebrity style, there’s even cocaine for the models. My point it, Liza doesn’t hesitate for a moment that she too is an oldie. She loves being eternally young, which also points to the realization that maybe she’s too immature for Charles. Who would have seen that coming?

Thoughts on this weeks Younger? Are you Team Charles or Team Josh? At the end of the episode, Liza was 100% Team Josh and well, they are some pretty cute marshmallows.

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.
