Happy Saturday TV Fans! As we approach the series finale of Younger, there is quite a lot I want to see, but will we have time to address it all in the jam-packed finale?
**Please note spoilers are ahead if you are not caught up with this series.**
Younger is such a fun show and I have honestly fallen in love with it over the years. There is this seamless balance between rom-com perfection and drama to keep you coming back for more. While the love triangle has been done over and over again, it somehow seemed fresh and new on this show. There are also these incredible moments of self-reflection and growth presented and the show really captures the essence of true friendship without becoming too cheesy in the process.
It seems like the right time to end the series, but the final season has had its ups and downs. Will it end things on a high note? I’m remaining positive and I hope we can get back some of the magic from the earlier seasons in the final episode.
So, what can we expect from the series finale?
I really want to see Liza and Kelsey venture out on their own. We know that Charles is finally impressed with what they are creating with Inkubator, but maybe it’s time for them to step away from the company and branch out on their own.
Of course there is now some drama tangled up in this. After Kelsey agrees to let Rob show someone the pitch, it gets forwarded all over the place and eventually winds up with Quinn. We know she is going to make some waves here.
I think that Charles took too long to really believe in his employees and the beginning of the series started off with Liza having to lie about her age to land a job. Well, she has certainly proven herself and embraced her age and identity, so I think it’s about time for her to make it on her own with Kelsey.
I’m rooting for you ladies!
What about our favorite supporting characters?
So, I appreciate the amount of time we have been spending on Maggie and Lauren this season. But, what about Diana? We know that Diana and Zane will not be featured that much in the final season, but we have to see Diana in the final episode…right?
We brought back Max into Lauren’s life and Maggie has really found her identity again through her work, but what about Josh?
Now that we have been shoved back into the Charliza direction again, it seems like Josh has been mostly filler this season. There was a part of me that wanted Liza to end up with him, but now what’s next for him?
He’s a great father and he has his work, but I really feel like we mostly used Josh as a prop for other characters and he deserves a lot more than that.
Is Rob right for Kelsey?
I think Kelsey deserves a lot better and she is making some poor decisions when it comes to Rob. I don’t really agree with what she did to Clare. She should have been honest and upfront with her from the start. After that argument, it seems like she is moving too quickly with Rob.
I spent a lot of time falling in love with her and Zane and I will be extremely disappointed if this is truly the end of their relationship. I am hoping that Zane will also somehow get a hold of the pitch to save the day, but I really don’t know at this point.
I actually really liked the competitive drive between these two and I feel like Kelsey has lost a bit of herself in the final season. Fingers crossed that it will all work out!
Is Charliza end game?
Honestly, I don’t know if I’m sold on this one. Sure, we have built up this epic love between them over the years, but I am really annoyed at Charles for rebounding with Quinn so quickly after Liza. Charles is a smart man and even though his ego was hurt by Liza’s answer, this seems like an annoying plot device thrown into the mix.
Nobody likes Quinn and she has been shady from the start, so why would Charles go to her with open arms? We brought Pauline back to stir things up and I honestly didn’t care. Liza has been so strong on her own and I was sort of hoping that she would end the series without a man, but maybe have it implied that things weren’t off the table for her and Josh in the future.
Now, that has been thrown out the window and we are left with a cheesy Charliza happy ending. It’s not that I don’t like these two together. I just don’t like how they were split apart and I think that we should really question Charles’s character after his relationship with Quinn.
That being said, I’m going into the series finale with an open mind. This show has always been really entertaining and I will miss watching it. I hope we get a few surprises during the finale and some much needed guest stars, but we’ll have to wait and see!

DON’T TAKE THE JOB…
It was only supposed to be temporary…but when Olivia Crewe accepts a new position that seems too good to be true, she soon discovers that twelve other girls previously had the same job as her. Only none of them lasted for more than thirty days. No notice. Nothing…right before they mysteriously disappeared without a trace.
