Is it just me or is Liza starting to hate being a “millenial.”

This week, Bryce returned to Empirical to put his two cents in about the direction of the publishing house. In his 20-something year old eyes, books are dead, Beyonce’s the only one still keeping poetry alive and Youtube sensation’s are about to become the next best sellers.

Introducing the “Stoopid Girls” aka the most annoying thing I’ve seen on television in a million years. If I was told to watch them, I’d probably hate being a millenial too. Liza and Kelsey decided to give these Youtube stars a chance and headed to a convention to see if they’d be interested in a book deal. Liza’s overall feel as she walked from stand to stand, “what the eff is happening to our youth.”

Thankfully, the ray of light came when Younger proved, not EVERY millenial is that dumb. Sadly, in the world we live in, dumb sells and many of us are just trying to pay off our student debt. And those with the money, like Bryce, well, they buy whatever makes the money and in this case, that’s the “Stooped Girls.”

One of the girls, Tay, was intrigued by Liza’s proposition, only because she was actually an aspiring writer. She sent over the first chapter of her book and both Kels and Liza loved it. Not loving it however? Bryce. He didn’t want one of the viral Youtuber’s to write a “good book,” he wanted them to do something stupid.

When Liza confronted him about it, he dropped the bomb – her job was safe but he was preparing to cut 45% of Empirical’s employees, mainly the old people. As a millenial, that’s my problem with millenials. Sure, you might be hip and in the know, but older people are wiser and have more experience. There needs to be an even mix in order for anything to succeed, especially a publishing house. Bringing Bryce on board was a move to help save print, not destroy it. After this, I don’t think he’s going to last much longer.

All of this brought Liza to a point of wondering “what am I doing.” She hasn’t fully committed to Josh because she’s still kind of crushing on Charles. The two bump into each other at the opera and that sexual tension is fuming up the room. In fact, it’s starting to bother me that Liza is now kind of stringing Josh along and using him as her boy toy, withholding on sex because of her “period” when really it’s because she’s probably thinking of her boss. It definitely isn’t fair to either of them but more-so Josh, who has been nothing but accepting and is really smitten with her.

While I’m on Team Josh always, I have a feeling Liza’s end-game will be Charles. It’s clear that she’s sick of being a millenial, hates pretending to be something she’s not and just wants a more conventional relationship with an emotional connection. I guess who can really blame her?

The award of the week however goes to Diana who literally unwound from her bitchy self after getting her pipes clogged by the hot plumber. Really, there’s nothing more to it and I enjoyed watching her let loose and get her freak on. The cherry on top was seeing Liza and Kelsey literally “shocked” by her good mood. Oh the wonderful things a romp will do for you!

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.
