Younger – The Jade Crusade (2×04)

Why is Younger only 30 minutes long? I barely get into the episode and it’s already over. Can someone at TV Land please make this an hour long show – I guarantee you, viewers will be flocking!

This week, we didn’t get much Liza and Josh drama, which was nice but it also meant there was no Josh shirtless. I know he’s not a piece of meat, but I do love me some Josh.

Instead, we got a whole lot of Charles who became an internet sensation known as the “Empiriconda.” Yes, that is the BEST name I’ve ever heard. Liza’s mission was to shut down all the picture of Charles and his goods and she suceeded for the most part with Lauren’s help. Unfortunately, in the digital age, everything that goes up (no pun intended) stays up (that’s actually not how it usually works).

Liza’s other mission was to help Kelsey land a very young and hip writer named Jade. Jade’s honest book bashing the industry for shaming people for aging was going to be a best seller and Kelsey knew it. Jade however was unsure if Millenial was the right fit for her because she was convinced Kelsey and Liza were a little too “basic.” Serious insult! Redmond gave the girls a chance to prove her wrong, but during the outing, Jade insisted on being pretty lame because she was out of molly and not drunk enough. And when Josh finally arrived, she threw a drink at his face and dipped. Yeah, she used the “work meeting” to get back at her douchebag ex!

Josh admitted to cheating on Jade, which basically squashed their chances at landing their first young author. But Liza wasn’t ready to give up yet. With Josh’s help, they kidnapped Jade and had him apoligize to her. The result – another drink to the face. Hey, at least Josh was kind enough to help his GF out. She finally signed with millenial and when she tweeted the good news, she also included a picture of Charles’s “wenis” as Diana put it. Yikes. To be honest, I think the girls should have taken Josh’s advice on this one – I don’t care how much money someone can make me, if she’s a nutjob, I don’t want to be around her. And Jade is definitely going to be a craaaaazy!

 

The star of the show this week was definitely Lauren who declared she would be monogamous with Maggie. But aside from the witty one liners, I felt like this episode brought nothing new to the table. Maybe that’s just what happens when Liza focuses on work for one episode and doesn’t break up with Josh multiple times.

Next week Liza runs into some friends from back in the day who invite her and Josh to dinner. How awkward will that be? I guess it’s not as bad now considering Josh knows Liza’s real age. But just wait till her ex gets wind of her new boyfriend!

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.
