Younger- Shedonism (1×06)

Published

on

Yes, Jane Krakowski really did run into a glass door twice in order to chase her coke dealer on this weeks Younger. It’s all in the name of fun I suppose. Krakowski portrays Annabelle, the new writer of hit book titled Shedonism and one of Diana’s oldest, but craziest friends. She’s the girl that never seemed to grow up.

When Diana has to throw her book launch party, Annabelle wants it to be hip and cool and full of trendy folks. So, obviously Diana enlists her assistants help. Liza is stuck doing ridiculous things like ordering real life peacocks because as Diana says, her assistants either move up or move out. She’s also counting on a ton of Kelsey’s friends to come tweet and do whatever it is the youth do. She even brings Josh, who Annabelle grows a really big liking too. It’s obviously the tattoos.

The night doesn’t go so well for either of them. The party gets trending on Twitter but only because the author everyone is celebrating gets hammered out of her mind and runs into the door. Yep. Brutal. Diana comes to the rescue to save her distressed friend and it shows that even though she pretends to be cold, she’s really a good person inside.

I don’t think she’d be ok with finding out Kelsey is hooking up with Anton Bjornberg because editors and their clients just shouldn’t sleep together. But Kelsey is young and full of hormones and really just enjoying getting it on with this older dude, so let her be ok? Also, he’s much nicer than Thad so there’s that.

Liza is also dealing with her ex-husband who hasn’t changed at all and gambled away most of his money. He doesn’t want to come clean to his new gf so he calls his ex-wife for help and asks her to take his boat. He doesn’t want to lose it because its the last memory he really has of his past life with her- a time when he was a better man. Liza agrees initially but then ends up telling him she can’t enable him anymore. Maybe if she had stood up a long time ago, things would have been different and they wouldn’t have been divorced. He seems bummed by her decision, rightfully so, but it shows him that she’s a different woman. A changed woman… that’s pretending to be a years younger than she really is. I’m calling it now, this guy is going to reach rock bottom and try getting back with Liza. But sorry dude, she’s got a way hotter bf right now, who will hopefully be okay with the fact that she’s 40 when he finds out eventually.

And then there’s Maggie who was way to excited to have sex with a woman who was 9 months pregnant with twins. Whatever floats her boat I guess.

What did you think of this weeks Younger? Is Liza getting in over her head? I’m totally down with Liza pretending to be 20 because let’s face it, she’s getting a new attitude, new perspective and actually living it up. She may be a little over her head because things are going to come crashing down eventually, but hopefully at that point, everyone will love her regardless. Also, does Annabelle know Liza’s real age?! I think so!

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 (6×11)

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.
