Ranking the top 5 moments from “Younger” season 6 episode 8: “I Made a Mess of Everything”

Happy Thursday TV fans!  After watching TV Land’s Younger season 6 episode 8, I learned that “you can’t win the game without playing the game,” but there are always consequences to our actions.  Honesty is often said to be the best policy, but will the truth set you free or will you wind up with an even bigger PR nightmare?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  

In last night’s episode, “The Debu-Taunt,” Liza bumps into Charles’s ex-wife, Pauline, but things don’t start out as awkward as you may think.  Meanwhile, Diana’s engagement is announced, but another revelation steals the show and yes, it’s the one you have been waiting for.  My top 5 moments from Younger season 6 episode 8 are:


“I wasn’t expecting to see you.”

After Charles’s daughter forgets her book report, Liza volunteers to drop it off at school and borrows a coat from the closet.  We quickly discover that it is Pauline’s coat and Liza ends up bumping into her at the school.  You would think this would be beyond awkward, but Pauline is calling for a cease fire and even asks Liza to lunch.  Is this truly a cease fire though?  Pauline seems to be coping quite well with the divorce, but is she truly over everything?  Look out, Liza!


“You should move in…”

Charliza is ready to take a big step here, as Charles invites Liza to move in with him.  Liza wants to think about it and Charles tells her not to over think it, but it is a huge decision and that would also mean that Liza would need to leave Maggie behind and I love them being roommates.  It looks like Liza is ready, but timing is everything.


“Liza Miller is 42 years old and she’s been lying shamelessly about who she is for years!”

Yes, you heard that right and to make matters worse, Pauline decides to out Liza at the event on stage…in front of everyone.  Talk about a public humiliation nightmare come true.  So, I do find it odd that Pauline seemed perfectly OK with Charles leaving her for a 26-year-old, but is outraged when she finds out that Liza is actually older.  Wouldn’t she be more upset about him leaving her for a younger woman? 

Either way, Pauline was clearly not truthful about her cease fire, as she goes on stage with guns blazing.  Poor Diana stands up to defend Liza and Liza tries to gently tell her that it’s true, which made this moment that much more shocking.  Sure, the press and the world knows, but Diana’s discovery was heartbreaking to watch, as she truly felt betrayed by this revelation.


“Do you wanna talk about it?”

After Diana has a panic attack and is taken to the hospital, Liza feels beyond awful, realizing that she has made a mess of everything with her lie.  She talks to Josh on the phone and he tells her that he will talk to her about it for however long she needs, which was sweet and touching.  Josh is there for Liza, but I continue to see more hints for them to rekindle their romance, but where would that leave Charles?  After the PR nightmare, Liza realizes that it is not the right time for her to move in with Charles, but let’s hope that this doesn’t hurt their relationship too much.


“I did all those things for you.”

Over the seasons, we have witnessed heartbreaking reactions to Liza’s lie, but Diana’s had the biggest impact for me.  After Diana asks Liza to be her maid of honor, she is hurt and betrayed, feeling like a fool for being the only one who wasn’t in on the secret.  Liza tries to explain everything to Diana and they do reconcile, as Diana hilariously tells her that she is now her “old maid of honor,” but I hope this doesn’t damage their friendship too much.

Also, news is spreading fast about Liza’s deception, so how will this impact the business?  It looks like we are about to find out.  Is Liza’s career over for good?  Stay tuned!

I hope you enjoyed the list and feel free to post your own theories and thoughts on Younger below in the comments section.  Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!
