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 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

Younger – Forever (6×12)
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.
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 (6×11)
“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.
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.
