Happy Wednesday TV fans! After watching TV Land’s Younger season 5 episode 7 last night, I was pleased to learn that many families have quirky holiday traditions. I mean not everyone gets up in front of a party to yodel to a song from “The Sound of Music,” especially when your boss walks in to get a glimpse of the show, but it’s all in good fun. Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet. In last night’s episode, “A Christmas Miracle,” Liza tries to make her daughter’s holiday a special one and is willing to tough out a night with her ex-husband to do so, only an unexpected guest shakes things up quite a bit. Meanwhile, Diana continues to be surprised by Enzo, Maggie refuses to compromise herself, and Kelsey continues to struggle with balancing her feelings for Jake and Zane. My top 5 moments from Younger season 5 episode 7 are:
“It’s so full. It’s so many pine needles.”
Diana and Enzo’s relationship is continuing to blossom and Enzo decides to show up at her doorstep with a large Christmas tree. Diana is not too sure that it will really go with her decor and seems worried about the impact it may have on her carpet, but Enzo proves he can deal with Diana’s antics and then some. He sets up the tree for her and lights it up and even gets her to change her tune a little bit, which shows how much these two truly care for each other. Enzo is really making Diana happy and she is willing to break out of her comfort zone for him, which may be just what she really needs.
“I didn’t make all this work for it to be buried in the artistic sunken place.”
Maggie is beyond excited that all of her artwork has been purchased by a wealthy couple and they continue to spoil her with gifts and attention. While it seems harmless at first, Maggie quickly realizes that the bracelets she received are basically like “golden handcuffs,” and that she will be required to go on vacations with them and fit into their lifestyle whenever they want. While Maggie appreciates the money and the opportunity, she is not about to stifle her artistic persona in order to fit into some kind of cookie cutter mold of forgotten artists and she tells the couple exactly what she thinks to their shock and disappointment. Maggie never ceases to amaze me, as she refuses to compromise herself in any situation.
“Can I have one secret?”
In this episode, Kelsey continues to struggle with seeing both Jake and Zane. Things get beyond complicated when they show up at the office party and Zane kisses Kelsey in front of people. Jake notices this from afar and takes this opportunity to approach Charles and request that only Kelsey work on his book from now on. Zane is beyond upset, but realizes that he should have seen this coming, seeing right through Jake’s act. He says, “The author gets what the author wants,” and is really hitting closer to home with this statement than he realizes. It seems like Jake is willing to play dirty to get Kelsey all to himself, but is this really the right person for her? Zane’s feelings for Kelsey are real and passionate and I would hate to see him hurt when he finds out the truth about Kelsey and Jake. Will she make the right decision before it is too late?
“Don’t give up on her.”
Caitlin and Maggie are shocked when Josh stops by before leaving to see his family and gives Liza a holiday gift. She also gives him one as well and it’s clear that the “just friends” vibe is crossing a line. Caitlin tries to tell her mother that Josh still loves her, but she dismisses it. Later in the episode, Caitlin bumps into Josh and tells him, “You’re the best thing to happen to her in a long time…don’t give up on her.” This causes Josh to stop and think for a moment and it seems like Caitlin may have lit a spark that might not be ready to burn again, especially when we know that Charles is waiting in the wings. Will this conversation further complicate things between Liza and Josh?
“I don’t care anymore.”
After Caitlin begs Liza to perform to “The Sound of Music” in front of the holiday party, Liza eventually gives in to make her daughter happy, but is shocked when Charles walks through the door. Charles is told that Liza is the woman that the hosts wanted to set him up with to make things even more awkward. Charles plays along and pretends that this is the first time he is meeting Liza and is delighted to also meet her daughter, now learning that everything Liza did was for her. When asked what he thinks of Liza, he comments, “She is definitely interesting.” Sparks continue to fly between these two at the office and Liza is shocked when she gets a very large Christmas bonus from Charles. After she goes to confront him about it, she discovers that he has already left, but Charles has a change of heart when he sees a promotion for “The Sound of Music” in the taxi. I have to admit that when Liza returned home and found Charles standing on her doorstep, I was squealing with joy. Charles simply tells her, “I don’t care anymore” and the two begin kissing. The moment we have all been waiting for is finally here and it seems like Team Charles is finally getting the chance it deserves. Now that is a “Christmas Miracle!” Stay tuned!
