Ranking the top 5 moments from “Younger” season 6 episode 1 season premiere: “Timing”

Happy Thursday TV fans!  The wait is over and your favorite summer show is back!  After watching TV Land’s Younger season 6 episode 1 season premiere, I realized that timing is everything.  You may think you have everything figured out, but sometimes things go in another direction.  So do you stay on the path you are on or do you take a risk and try something new?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  In last night’s episode, “Big Day,” Liza and Charles adjust to life together after Charles’s huge decision, but are they ready to take the next step in their relationship?  Meanwhile, Kelsey embraces her role as the boss, Josh finds out if he is the father of Clare’s baby, and Zane continues to charm us with his mysterious new job possibility.  My top 5 moments from the Younger season 6 episode 1 season premiere are:


“It’s harder than I thought.”

Change is in the air, but our girl Kelsey is ready to take on her new position.  Kelsey is beyond excited about being the new publisher, but she quickly realizes that there is a lot that comes with the job.  Kelsey has had to trade in her passion for books for forecasts and spreadsheets and we learn that the company is not doing that great, which puts a tremendous amount of pressure on Kelsey. 

That being said, Kelsey is strong and intelligent and I think she will make a fantastic publisher, but this is not going to be easy for her.  I’m ready to go on the adventure with her and it will be interesting to see how the dynamic shifts at the office now.


“Are we friends?”

I am so beyond excited that Zane is back this season, as things were kind of left up in the air after he left Empirical last season.  I have been shipping him and Kelsey for quite some time now, but Zane seems like he wants to keep their relationship professional for now, even after Kelsey makes a few hints at some possibilities for them.  We know that Zane is charming and strategic when it comes to business, but what is his next move with Charles?  I’m very interested to find out, but will this put a further strain on his possible relationship with Kelsey?  We’ll have to wait and see!


“Don’t encourage them!”

The drama is far from over at Millennial when Kelsey learns that an article is about to be leaked about Charles having an affair with a 28-year-old employee.  Even though we all know this is Liza, it looks like everything is pointing in Kelsey’s direction, which could be quite scandalous for her recent promotion.  Liza finally comes clean and decides to announce to the entire office that she is the one having a relationship with Charles.

Diana is shocked and clearly hurt by this announcement and begins to look elsewhere for employment opportunities, but it looks like Diana just truly needed some appreciation.  Liza and Kelsey track her down at her favorite singing bar, “Marie’s Crisis Café” and put on a show stopping performance to “9 to 5,” which was so much fun and hilarious to watch.  I love this trio right now and I’m happy that Diana ultimately had a change of heart.  We need her!


“I know you’re busy but…”

Josh has a lot on his plate when his former wife, Clare, shows up heavily pregnant.  She tells Josh that the baby is his, but Maggie suggests a paternity test to confirm everything.  The results are in and Josh…you are the father!  Josh is freaking out, but he has a heart-to-heart talk with Liza, who promises to be there every step of the way to support him.  Only it seems like Josh still has some lingering feelings, as he talks to Liza about timing and how she is now with someone else.  Even though I’m feeling Charliza, Team Josh is always in the back of my mind as well.  I mean, we need some kind of drama for our girl Liza, even though she is pretty much floating on a cloud with Charles right now.


“When I’m with her, I feel free.”

Team Charles and Charliza fans rejoice!  We get some super sweet moments for our favorite couple in the season premiere.  Charles even goes out of his way to surprise Liza with a new bed, which I have to say was absolutely swoon-worthy!  Charles is adjusting to life outside of Empirical and he definitely has a lot to figure out, but it looks like he won’t have too much free time for long, as he is working on something with Zane.

Liza ends up saying “I love you” to Charles and runs away before he can respond, but Charles is ready to take the next step with Liza and ends up saying it back to her later in the episode.  I mean, after all, he has had feelings for her for 16 years now with her recent age reveal!  I can’t wait to see what’s next for Liza and Charles, but it looks like her loyalties may be tested later on when it comes to choosing him or Kelsey.  I can’t wait to see how this unfolds and I’m so happy this show has returned!  Stay tuned!
