Ranking the top 5 moments from “Younger” season 6 episode 5: “Let the Games Begin”

Happy Thursday TV fans!  After watching TV Land’s Younger season 6 episode 5, I realized that healthy competition is not necessarily a bad thing, but when it comes to blurring the lines between your personal and professional life, things can get a bit complicated.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  In last night’s episode, “Stiff Competition,” Liza and Charles continue to compete over authors, which begins to put a strain on their relationship.  Meanwhile, Kelsey and Diana attempt to channel their rage, and Lauren puts her publicist skills to the test with Josh’s daughter.  My top 5 moments from Younger season 6 episode 5 are:


“Feisty isn’t the F word I would use…”

In this episode, the competition between Charliza initially seems kind of fun and spicy, but this mood quickly changes when the competition gets real.  Liza and Charles are both very convincing and are up for the challenge, but winning isn’t always everything…especially if it gets in the way of our favorite ship on the show!


“Charles is hot and I’m not.”

Poor Kelsey.  After losing some of her hair in last week’s episode, she is now placed toward the bottom of a hot in publishing list, as Charles is climbing up to the top.  Charles does look quite dashing in his picture and they somehow decided to just use a cropped photo of Kelsey’s head, which makes her a “floating tragedy,” according to Diana.  Kelsey has had enough and is not ready to hand over her authors to Charles, but this is definitely not helping her ease her stress.


“We have a lot of rage.”

Liza tries to maintain a positive spin on everything, realizing that she is constantly in the middle here and decides to have Kelsey and Diana accompany her to watch a talented young musician, who she has been in contact with for months about her book.  It looks like things are going well, but Charles is there and we find out that he is the one that provided the girl with her scholarship, so it initially looks like our ladies are out of luck here. 

Kelsey and Diana are over it and try to channel some of their rage by throwing axes, but things get interesting when the restroom is out of order and Diana has to pee.  As luck would have it, a police officer catches Diana urinating outside and Kelsey is still holding on to the ax.  They hilariously end up in jail, but luckily Enzo is there to bail them out.  I love when Kelsey and Diana team up.  These two are so funny and I hope we get some more screen time with them together soon!


“Gemma is following me on Insta…”

Lauren may have just found her golden ticket, as she starts an Instagram page for Josh’s baby daughter, Gemma.  @GemmaLoves already has 5000 followers in a day and everyone seems to be a fan.  Josh is initially skeptical about exploiting his daughter, but is ultimately on board when he realizes some of the perks.  Plus, it’s kind of fun!  Lauren and Josh take some absolutely adorable pictures of Gemma and I am a fan for sure.  I thought this was really cute and it gave us some much needed screen time with fan favorite Lauren, so that’s always a plus!


“If it’s all you, then there’s no room for us.”

Even though Charles is proving to be a tough competitor, he does confide in Liza about the possibility of losing his investment, explaining that he is essentially gambling it all for this risk.  Liza understands and she doesn’t want anyone to lose, but even Kelsey tells her that she will need to choose a side.  Later on, Charles congratulates Liza on winning over the author, but reminds her that he is essentially still winning since it is his father’s company, which doesn’t sit too well with Liza.

When Charles comes over, he also seems surprised to see Liza with Josh and his baby and asks her if he is competing with him.  I don’t question Liza’s feelings or loyalty to Charles, but she ultimately walks away from him after reminding him that “if it’s all you, then there’s no room for us.”  This is definitely not the end for Charliza, but it looks like Liza will need to decide what to do since she is essentially still in the middle here.  What will she decide?  Stay tuned!
