Younger – Summer Friday (3×09)

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 Season 6 Report Card: Best & Worst Moments!

Published

on

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 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.
