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

Published

on

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 – Millennial’s Next Top Model (6×09)

Published

on

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.

Younger Merger, She Wrote Review

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.
