Younger – Tattoo You / The Mao Function (2×01 & 2×02)

Younger finally returned after what felt like forever and we dived right back in into Liza’s twisted lie of a life.

Her daughter Caitlin came back from India and Liza contemplated whether or not she should tell her about her double-life. She opted against it, but when Caitlin got a tattoo from a really hot guy in Brooklyn, Liza had enough. It was bad enough that he stood her up at the bar the night before, but now he tattooed her daughters side boob? Unacceptable. In Josh’s defense, he didn’t know that it was Liza’s daughter – duh, he never met her and literally just found out about her. And he definitely didn’t stand her up… he was busy inking her daughter. Yes, that sounds bad. The two make up in the best way they know how and Liza’s daughter just happens to spot them from the outside. She later confronts her mom about the whole thing and calls it “gross,” which I can’t agree with. Liza and Josh are adorable!

But has he really accepted that she’s 40 years old? Yes and no. He didn’t break up with her so that’s a plus, but he’s also making fun of her for it, especially when he gets hammered and gets whiskey dick. Whoops. I’m not sure if Josh acted this sketchy in the first season, but he’s definitely not on the same intellectual level as Liza. When she takes him to a party, he bails and doesn’t even wait for her to take a call. He’s not capable of texting back or using punctuations. It honestly seems like she’s always crawling to him, but he’s never reaching out. Is that how it should be?

Part of me loves Josh and Liza, but the other part really thinks she belongs with Charles. Then again, if she were to date him, she’d just go back into that suburban wife life, which she’s been trying to ignore. Basically, it’s a lose-lose, but she has to find the balance soon.

Meanwhile, things at Empirical are pretty wild. Kelsey just got offered a new job at a different publisher and when Charles finds out she’s contemplating it, he offers her her own imprint. Kelsey will now be running a team devoted to millenial novels and she invites Liza to hop on board. That prevents Liza from coming clean to her BFF about her age. How could she work the job if Kelsey finds out she’s 40? And her one goal with getting a job was to get Caitlin through school, regardless of whether or not her daughter moved to live with her dad and work at his office.

Other Memorable Moments

  • Maggie and Lauren are totally hooking up and Lauren thinks it is perfectly ok to walk around naked. Even better, Maggie thinks Lauren has no idea what’s going on at all times. I def support these two though – Maggie has hustled to help Liza enjoy her 23-year-old life, she deserves something out of it.
  • Is there a person better than Diana Trout trying to impress Charles? She’s literally ready to throw herself at him during the dinner. (Warning: watch out for the peppercorn shrimp… it can chip a tooth).
  • Will Charles pursue that dentist or will we never see her again?
  • Charles is totally crushing on Liza, but is her perfect night reading a book with her lover? I guess it beats getting beer spilled on you by mean college girls.
  • Josh’s roommate in Liza’s robe – gross. Why do college guys have weird roommates?
  • Why is Kelsey still with Thad? He’s such a douche.

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 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.
