Younger – Summer Friday (3×09)

Published

on

Who else wishes that it was actually a summer friday today? When I look out the window, all I see is cold darkness and some light flurries.

But over in New York, everyone has been hit with a heat wave, literally and physically.

As everyone is ditching work to vacation in the Hamptons, Diana is stuck seeing her therapist who advises her to get out and live life. She takes it a little too literally and goes on a date with the therapist next door, which doesn’t sit well with her doctor because well, he knows this dude is trouble. The red flags were all right in front of her: he picks up emotionally unstable women, his wife kicked him out, he’s living in his office and washing his hair in his sink. Yet her need for male company trumped logic and after just one night, he was using his psych lingo to trick her into letting him live with her for a little. And you know what happens, you let them stay for a day and they never leave. Don’t say we didn’t warn you Diana!

Things were also heating up between Kelsey and her new BF, Colin. She loved his book and wanted to get it published as soon as possible, but knew an agent was necessary since you’re never supposed to mix business with pleasure. Her intentions were in the right place but the excitement of Redmon’s agreeing to take on the book got the best of her and she over shared a little too much during her EW interview. Before the ink was even dry, EW posted a huge chunk of the book, enticing other publishing houses who were eating it up and tripling Empirical’s offer. As she propelled him to greatness, she left herself behind and virtually screwed over Millenial. It does say a lot about her though, putting Colin’s happiness before the success of her company. Either she’s not all wrapped up in business yet or she’s really into this guy. And if they stay together and he scores a $1.2 million dollar deal, she still wins, even if her imprint doesn’t.

Charles was noticeably absent this week, but that didn’t stop the tension from running high with Liza and Josh. Their relationship has so many layers that you can peel back – so many stories that can be told and so many avenues to explore… and that’s not a reference to anal sex, which Josh definitely proposed. Much to his disappointment,  Liza denied it because “she’d been there and done it” and it just wasn’t her thing. That’s when Josh had this really big realization that Liza had a life before him and nothing they’d ever do together would be her “first.”  Liza however is a mastermind at fixing messes and gave Josh a first – her tattoo.

Josh was thrilled especially since he thought the symbol, an hourglass on it’s side with the sand equally balanced, represented “time stopping” when they were together. To me, the tattoo was much more; a representation of Liza getting the best of both worlds – her 40s and her 30s again – all meeting in the middle.

Other Thoughts

  • Did Charles ever get back together with Radha?
  • What’s going on with Liza’s divorce? Is David still trying to make things work?
  • I’d definitely like to see them have more screen time and see how he reacts when he sees the new Liza!
  • Truthfully speaking, Liza did NOT look 40 in that bikini. I dream of having her bod when I’m her age.
  • Anyone else miss Lauren? Now that she’s not dating Maggie, she hasn’t been around as much!
  • Will anyone ever find out Liza’s real age?
  • Speaking of Liza and Josh’s relationship having so many layers, we never even thought about what would happen if they accidentally got pregnant but it seems like something that will come up in next week’s episode. Despite Josh thinking he’ll never have any firsts, I feel like their relationship is a whole bunch of firsts that are just as meaningful to her as they were in her marriage.

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.
