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 – It’s All About the Money, Honey (6×10)

Published

Another day, another PR nightmare for Millennial.

Kelsey, Liza, and Charles visited my hometown of Chicago on Younger Season 6 Episode 10, but things weren’t exactly a breeze in the Windy City.

The trip was high-stress from the beginning as Kelsey and Charles attempted to sway their last remaining investor in to keep the company afloat.

They’re broke now, remember?

Charles took charge in the male-dominated meeting, but Kelsey flexed her publisher muscle by explaining that Millennial’s main asset is their ability to keep up with the times. Sometimes, a little too much.

There was a mention of transparency, which was worrisome considering Millennial’s lack of transparency when it came to Liza’s lie.

However, it wasn’t something the investors, all older men, would have been made privy too.

As they pointed out in the meeting, they didn’t understand the power of social media or how it could make them money, so chances are they didn’t Google to read up on Millennial’s recent hiccups.

But they got a very detailed lesson on social media courtesy of Kelsey.

After securing the funding, Kelsey and Charles’ celebrations were short-lived as they were plagued by another social media snafu, this time not one of Liza’s making.

Younger – Millennial’s Next Top Model (6×09)

Published

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.
