Younger – No Weddings and a Funeral (2×12)

At the core, Younger really is about a love story, but the question now is, whose love story?

Lets start from the beginning shall we? We pick things up at Thad’s funeral where Liza is feeling super guilty about lying. She believes she’s pretty much the reason why everything is spiraling out of control and believes telling Kelsey the truth would fix everything. One small lie and things start to unravel. Good idea – bad timing.

Instead, she ends up in bed with Josh, which I am 100% behind. What I’m not behind? Josh still dating GRETA while sleeping with Liza. Seriously? Sure a 20-something-year-old move. In order to not get caught, Liza literally had to sneak out onto the fire escape. Nothing like being in your 20s… or 40s!

At work, Chad, Thad’s creepy and seriously questionable twin brother showed Kelsey a video of Thad right before his death. Does anyone else think Chad was really the one sleeping with all those people at work and not Thad? Anyways, Kelsey is wondering why Liza was arguing with her fiancee right before the freak accident that really reminded me of “Mean Girls.” Instead of dropping the “I’m 40” bomb, Liza tells Kelsey that Thad was cheating, which leads to Kelsey freaking out and even saying if Liza didn’t get involved and try to do the moral thing, Thad would still be alive.

So Liza did the only thing she thought was right – she ran away from her problems by resigning from Empirical. Not even a day later, she began her job at a department store in New Jersey, while Diana and Kelsey freaked out back at work. Seriously, Diana didn’t even know what she had with Liza until she lost her and got an actual, entitled millenial.

After Lauren’s mom bumps into Liza at her new job, Charles decides to go over there and pretty much beg Liza to come back. Since she’s no longer his employee anymore, he takes the opportunity to let his feelings be known. Did anyone else get goosebumps when he kissed Liza? I mean, I know I love Josh but something about this man getting the balls to show Liza, a woman he thinks is half his age, how he really feels, is so hot!

And you can say Charles was persuasive because the next day, Liza was back in action at Empirical. Diana was pleased and Kelsey finally broke down, rejoicing in the fact that she was finally shedding tears for her late fiancee. I think after that heart-to-heart moment, Kelsey will definitely accept the fact that Liza is 40 when she finally racks up the courage to tell her.

Just like everyone else, Josh also realized his life sucked without Liza. *Cue the Kelly Clarkson song* As Liza got home from her eventful day at home, Josh was waiting on her steps and told her that he broke up with Greta because he wanted to be with her. I’d say adorable but after that kiss from Charles, Liza seemed very confused. Both are good for her and both represent strong parts of herself…. but who will she pick?

I can’t believe Younger season 2 is over already. I swear, we need more episodes and we need them to be longer. I just can’t get enough of these people!

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.
