Has anyone ever heard of the bad pancake theory? I hadn’t either but apparently it’s the idea that the guy you date after a relationship is like a burnt pancake. You have to use them and ditch them until you’re finally ready to make that perfect last pancake. Pretty sound right?
This week on Younger, Kelsey thought she found her perfect pancake on her online dating app, but the guy looked almost too good to be true. Turns out, he was. When she found out that he lived on Roosevelt Island, he went from the perfect pancake to the bad pancake stat. I’m not from NY so I didn’t understand what that meant but to Kelsey it meant it was time for a “tram slam,” which I guess is millenial for hit it and quit it. She waved goodbye from the tram but something tells me, we haven’t seen the last of Lucas.
Back at the office, Bryce goes a bye-bye after Charles finally snaps and has enough of his “distruptions.” Even I could tell that he isn’t fir for Empirical. While Bryce did add some funny moments to the show, his character seemed a little too over exaggerated. Sure, print books might not be the hottest thing anymore but the notion that they are dying and that you should rewrite classics for an app was a little too much for everyone, including me, a millenial. However he did have some good points, one of them being that Diana needs to loosen up. I felt so much better when she came strolling in in jeans.
With Bryce being gone – hopefully for good – the financial future of the company is questionable again. But regardless, Charles is happy with his decision and Liza commends him for standing up for what he believes in. Their encounter proves even more that she’s got deeply rooted feelings for him that she’s not willing to admit to.
I think Liza will be pushed even further towards Charles after witnessing Josh so curious about how pregnancy works. When he asked if she’d ever “catch a [baby] cold” again, she was definitely taken aback. I don’t think Josh realizes that she’s 40… and while I know 40-year-olds can have kids, Liza is clearly way passed that, especially since her only child is in college and she was finally able to get her life back. In fact the reason she’s been pretending to be 28 is to get her pre-child life back. Although isn’t it funny that a 40-year-old woman can do a job just as well, if not better, than a millenial and even adapt to their culture?
Do you think the children issue will be a dealbreaker for them? Josh always said he didn’t want kids but guys are always a little behind which means he could be getting comfortable with the idea now. Liza won’t want to hold him back and this could be their breaking point.
As for Maggie, she met a hot new woman that wasn’t her usual type but she felt a total connection. I love that Maggie can just be herself and pursue whoever she has an emotional and sexual vibe with. We’ll see how this progresses and if Lauren will be jealous, even though she’s dating a doctor now.
How do you think Empirical will function without Miller’s money? Will Josh and Liza break up? Will Liza finally admit her feelings for Charles cannot be ignored? Will Diana ever find the plumber again?
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.
