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 Season 6 Report Card: Best & Worst Moments!
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.
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 – Forever (6×12)
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.
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 (6×11)
“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.
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.
