Things weren’t on Liza’s side this week on Younger and I finally remembered why being in your 20’s isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
For starters, Liza and Maggie had to evacuate their apartment for two days because of bed bugs. Ugh I shiver just thinking about it. While Maggie went to live with some friend, Liza decided to spend the night at Josh’s. Unfortunately, that wasn’t as fun as it sounds. When they arrived at his place, two of his “bros” came to crash from Philly. When you’re in your 40’s the last thing you want is to live in a house with a bunch of dudes young enough to be your sons… but then again, this is what she signed up for by dating a dude half her age. And not telling him.
To make matters worse, when she went into the bathroom, there was shit in the clogged toilet because guys are effing gross. Liza’s reaction= epic however. Then Josh couldn’t even tell his friends she was his girlfriend, he said they were “hanging out.” How immature, seriously dude?
The next night she went to sleep at Lauren and Kelsey’s place… except it turns out they live with Lauren’s parents in a beautiful Manhattan house. Like Kelsey said, something for something. I’d rather live in this place with parents than in a crappy apartment in Brooklyn too. The slumber party was really fun, with Lauren’s mom even giving Kelsey “make Josh want you” advice. But then things got super weird when Lauren’s dad wouldn’t leave her room because he was being a creepy old dude that was trying to make a move on her or something. What the hell?
Things at work weren’t going any better. At first it seemed like Liza’s find- the book from the reject pile titled “The Scarf” was a major hit after being showcased at suburban old lady book clubs. Women were sending in scarves and demanding that Empirical publish the book. Liza and Kelsey called the author, got permission to give her a publishing deal from Charles and even pissed off Diana. So much that the next day they met with the client and Diana outright embarrassed her assistant by proving the book was completely plagiarized from a book called “Babushka.” Diana was on her high horse yet again and Charles seemed really disappointed in Liza… even though she and Kelsey swore they followed protocol. God, Diana is cruel. Sorry that homeboy isn’t interested in you!
Seeing how disappointed she was in the fact that this lady lied to her made Liza realize her lies were probably disappointing a lot of people too. Okay, not probably… more like definitely. She seriously almost slipped up several times throughout this episode and revealed her real age. When she was finally going to tell Josh the truth, he interrupted her by telling her they weren’t just hanging out. They were serious and to prove it, he tattooed a dragon- for her fake birth year- on his body. That’s devotion. But seriously idiot, don’t you know tattooing something for a girl only means it’s going to eff up. And when I say eff up I mean like it’ll explode into smithereens of disappointment and disgrace. I can’t wait.
Who do you think will be the first person to catch on to Liza’s lies? Will she get caught or will she fess up?
Younger Season 6 Report Card: Best & Worst Moments!
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.
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 – Forever (6×12)
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.
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)
“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.
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.
