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.

Why Isn’t ‘Younger’ Season 7 Returning This Summer?
For six seasons, Younger has been my favorite summer series. Liza’s love life feels like an endless summer romance, so while the series, which premiered in March of 2015, didn’t start off as a summer staple, it’s transformed into one with the past three seasons all premiering in June.
The lighthearted half-hour sitcom finds Liza Miller, a 40-year-old woman struggling to to re-enter the world of publishing after hiatus. When she keeps getting shown the door, she devises a plan to pretend that she’s 26, and her lie takes her on quite an adventure.
The series is fun and flirty, giving you the kind of vibe you want during the summer months.
And as the weather heats up, so do Liza’s relationships as she’s caught between composed and accomplished, Charles, and free-spirited, Josh.
However, there’s no sign of season 7 of Younger anywhere, and that’s because, it isn’t coming this summer.
Despite being renewed for a seventh season on July 2019, the series hasn’t even begun production on the upcoming season.
If production hadn’t been derailed due to the coronavirus pandemic and the subsequent shutdowns, the series would have likely finished filming in time for a July premiere.
Debi Mazar (Maggie) told ET that the series was set to have their first table read on the season on March 24 with production kicking off on March 30, which is around the time all TV show and film productions shut down.
While it’s unclear when production may resume, Mazar said they are eyeing August or September, which would push the series back to a 2021 premiere likely in January.
All of this means that we’re going to be waiting a lot longer than intended to get an answer to that season 6 cliffhanger — will Liza Miller accept Charles’ proposal or will she’ll decide that her heart still pines for Josh?
And can the series ever move on from the love triangle? Do we even want it to?
While Younger season 7 would have been a great escape for all of us who have been cooped up at home and hoping to get lost in Liza and Kelsey’s world’s again, we’re just going to have to exercise some patience.
The summer won’t be the same without the series, but don’t lose all hope. As you look for your upcoming summer shows to watch, you can check out our list here!
And be sure to add The Bold Type to your list as it returns for the latter half of season 4 on June 11.
Sexy and Steamy TV Shows to Watch During ‘The Bachelor’ Hiatus
With The Bachelor taking a hiatus (well, until their spinoff Listen to Your Heart premieres in April), you need to fill that reality TV dating void in your heart with some shows that are equally as hot and steamy.
While there are plenty of choices to make from the Bachelor franchise, if you’re looking to shake things up the same way Peter Weber did on his season, we suggest these shows!
Young scientist Lisa is strapped for cash and needs it to fund a life-changing project when Anne Montgomery (Oscar-winner Renée Zelwegger) approaches her with an offer she can’t refuse: one night alone with her husband. The only condition: she cannot ask what happened.
The telenovela lasted only one season before ABC canceled it, but it was a sizzlin’ drama focused on a forbidden love story and a who-dun-it murder mystery. Two of our favorite things.
Liza, a 40-year-old single-mom struggles to re-enter the working world. But when she meets a 26-year-old guy who believes she’s his age, it all becomes so clear as she fakes her age, gets a publishing job, and gets a second shot at her crazy 20s… that is until people start figuring out her secret that she’s trying desperately to protect.
The Bold Type
Fashion meets sex on The Bold Type. Three besties — Kat, Sutton, and Jane — are living their best lives in New York City and working for a fashion magazine, Scarlett. As they “push the envelope” in their career, they’re also doing it in their daily life as they find themselves, have plenty of sexual experiences, and learn how to be comfortable in their own bodies while feeling as lost as most millennials do.
Sisters Beth and Annie and best friend Ruby get fed up with playing by the rules and constantly losing, so they get a crazy idea to rob a grocery store. One illegal decision suddenly lands them in hot water and starts a dangerous life of crime and even a crime of passion with one sexy “gang friend.”
The series explores the emotional and psychological effects of two affairs. Newlyweds Alison and Cole are experiencing problems in their marriage and she finds solace in the arms of Noah, a teacher vacationing at his in-laws’ Hamptons estate with his family. What starts off as a summer affair quickly becomes much more complicated.
Described as the “adult Twilight” and the more intense version of The Vampire Diaries when it first came out, Sookie Stackhouse, an oddball at school who can read minds, falls for a 173-year-old vampire named Bill Compton. Bill and his vamp clique have joined the land of the living after a new synthetic blood allows vampires to survive without human blood. Sex, lust, and bloodlust all fuel this HBO series.
A private school in Spain becomes the scene of a murder brought on by a clash between the rich and the poor. The murder mystery begins as no one knows who’s responsible, and there’s a lot of sexual tension between the good looking students that leads the storyline.
Reality TV Shows
In the same vein as many other dating reality shows, Love Island brings together a cast of hot singles ready for love and romance that’s fueled on by warm weather on the island and a grand prize of £50,00o.
Married at First Sight
The title of the series is pretty self-explanatory, but in the case that it needs to be explained, a group of strangers looking for love get married to a complete stranger the first time they lay eyes on him/her. They’re paired up with the help of a spiritualist, a relationship coach, and a sociologist who use “scientific matchmaking methods.” The remainder of the season documents their honeymoon and life after marriage. Following several weeks, the couple gets the option of staying together or splitting up.
Are You The One?
The Netflix series is a new kind of dating experiment that finds strangers meeting via cubes and falling in love without ever seeing each other. The whole idea is to remove looks from the equation and find your soulmate based on connection alone. If finding someone you vibe with is successful in the pods, the couples get engaged, have a honeymoon in Mexico, and walk down the aisle a few weeks later. Who will say yes? And who will walk away?
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
