Younger – Me, Myself and O (3×06)

Published

on

Younger does what many TV shows nowadays are scared to do – it empowers women to be sexual beings that aren’t ashamed of it.

After letting Bryce go, Empirical went back to being the classy publishing house it was always meant to be… but unfortunately, classy wasn’t going to pay the bills. Even after Diana’s book won an award, they knew it wouldn’t bring in the kind of sales they needed to stay afloat. And you know things are getting bad when the head honcho of the company tells his kids their going to move out of their extravagant home because they need to cut costs.

Before thhat extreme measure, Charles reaches out to their top selling authot L.L Moore to convince him to write another book in his series “Clash of Kings.” Unfortunately, Moore informs him that he’s done with writing and that there are new authors who can bring in the cash.

That was actually code-word for “I’m writing a new book under a pseudonym and it will bring you all the success your company needs.” Neither Charles nor Kelsey and Liza know that but they do turn down the book titled “Me, Myself and O’s” and yes, it’s about orgasms and such. The girls don’t think the book is going to sell, despite the agent telling them to take it off the market.

Things change drastically when Liza realizes that some of the lines in “Me, Myself and O” and taken directly from “Clash of Kings.” In fact, Moore dropped the line as a sort of hint. Knowing this is the only way to save Empirical, they meet with the agent who tells them that Lena Dunham has already put an offer on the book.

Liza, being the devoted employee, arranges a dinner with Moore since she’s one of his favorites at the company. Who could forget Princess Pam Pam right? Well, thankfully she didn’t have to wear the outfit for dinner but she did have to sit through it as he explained how he wrote a book from the point of view of a young woman with sexual desires. He agreed to sign the book with Empirical under two conditions – she would keep his pseudonym a secret and that they would double Dunham’s offer.

When Liza and Kelsey bring the good news to Charles and Diana, they get an automatic “no” but Liza hints at the name of the author and when Charles realizes it’s Moore’s next book, he agrees. Liza single-handidly saved Empirical. Sometimes, she’s definitely undervalued. To celebrate, she gets a drink with the boss and well, that sexual tension is there. It’s only a matter of time before these two pounce on each other. That would be bad enough as it is but then we factor in Charles’s new girlfriend who is skeptical as all hell of Liza and wants to know “everything about the woman who spends so much time with the man she’s crazy about.” Yikes…

As for Maggie, she’s really into her new girlfriend. We’ve never seen her this attached, she’s usually pretty chill and distant but that wasn’t the case when she met the ex gf turned bff and wasn’t invited to a spiritual bath. When they saw she was a non-Jewish woman though, those ladies ran for their lives and I couldn’t help but laugh.

As for Josh, I love how freeing Liza’s relationship is with him. They hang out, he cheers for her, she roots for him and they do sexual things all over the place, even while a bunch of lesbian’s are playing baseball.

What team are you on? Josh or Charles? Are you waiting to see Liza crash and burn with them both? It’s inevitable right considering she’s conflicted but involved with both? Either that or she’ll eventually cheat and break Josh’s heart and no one wants that.

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.

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.
