Reaction to the “Younger” Series Finale: The Ending I Dreamed of Came True

**Please note MAJOR spoilers are ahead if you are not caught up with this series.**

I woke up bright and early today to watch the Younger series finale and even though I have had some issues with the final season, I went into it hoping for the best and boy did it deliver!

In last week’s post, I talked about some of my predictions and questions that I had and I think that most of them were answered in the finale, but there were still a few loose ends I had some issues with.

First, let’s talk about Kelsey’s decision.

I was really happy that Kelsey made the right decision about Rob and decided to go out on her own even though she didn’t really have an investor anymore for Inkubator. I thought that her speech at the party was really heartfelt and inspiring and I was rooting for her to find her own way.

Well, she did and thanks to the group behind Reese Witherspoon’s book club, she now has an investor. Kelsey will be moving to California and will be starting a new life, which was bitter sweet since she will be leaving Liza behind.

I have one issue with the Kelsey story and it involves Zane. I don’t like that we are just supposed to assume that Zane couldn’t handle Kelsey’s promotion and left things the way they were. I understand that the pandemic prevented some actors from returning, but Kelsey could have gotten a congratulatory text from Zane, perhaps?

Lauren and Maggie get a chance at love.

While not exactly what I expected for either of them, their choices were far from boring and I think that it suited their characters. I am really happy that we got to spend a lot of time devoted to them this season.

The end of Charliza…

I went into this series finale thinking we were going to get a cheesy Charliza ending and I was glad that the writers went in a different direction. Liza and Charles realize that they are not going to make it and part amicably this time.

Liza is going to be the editor-in-chief at Empirical and I was honestly really excited for her. This show has been a journey of self-discovery for Liza in a lot of ways and I think that this promotion proves that she has made it and then some.

The only thing missing here is that she needs Diana to join her team again…seriously not even a mention in the series finale? That was another missed opportunity.

OK, so let’s talk about that ending!!!!!!

Images courtesy of Hulu

I’ve been complaining that Josh has seemed mostly filler in the final season and deep down in my heart, I have always shipped Liza with Josh. The show ends exactly as it should. Everything comes full circle and Liza ends up at a bar…with Josh.

She points out that she didn’t even know he was there and he reminds her that he always has been.

The implication is there, which is exactly what I was looking for. We don’t get this over-the-top kiss or them walking off into the sunset, but we do leave things open enough to make our conclusions about what will happen between them.

I think that Younger redeemed itself in its final episode and I thought that it nailed the series finale, which is not easy to do.

I have seen a lot of shows fail at this miserably over the years and Younger took a simple and effective approach and it paid off.

I’m a Younger fan for life and I will miss watching the episodes, but there’s always time for a re-watch!

If you haven’t watched Younger yet, you can catch up now on Paramount Plus and Hulu!

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.

Predictions for the “Younger” Series Finale: What I’m Dying to See and More!

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?

Images courtesy of Hulu

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?

Images courtesy of Hulu

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?

Images courtesy of Hulu

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?

Images courtesy of Hulu

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!

My performance of the week ending 9/7/19 on TV goes to…

Hilary Duff as Kelsey Peters on TV Land’s Younger.  Even though the show mostly centers around Liza, I was beyond impressed with Hilary Duff’s performance in season 6 and I think that our girl Kelsey is finally showing the world what she is truly made of.  She’s more than a SHero.  She’s an inspiration and she is proving to be a strong woman who can compete with anyone in the business world.  Please note some spoilers are ahead if you are not up-to-date on the series.

Even when it seems like things are not working in her favor, Kelsey manages to turn it around somehow, proving that she is extremely capable and hard-working.  She refuses to let defeat creep over her and she always has another backup plan, preparing for whatever comes next. 

I have always loved the friendship between Liza and Kelsey, along with the budding relationship between Kelsey and Zane, but I really thought that Kelsey finally started to find her own identity separate from these relationships in season 6, which makes her much more than a supporting character.

Kelsey has a lot of responsibility on her shoulders in season 6, taking on the role of publisher of Millennial, but she continues to make impressive decisions.  Even after her social media mistake, she still bounces back and makes the courageous decision to leave the job that she has come to love, taking a huge leap of faith to discover her next path.

Ultimately, it looks like Kelsey’s path will actually lead her right back to Millennial in a different role and I have to say that I am relieved!  Kelsey has worked so hard and she deserves recognition for her efforts and I think that Charles is really trying his best to make her feel like she is part of the Millennial family.

What’s next for Kelsey?  We’ll have to wait and see, but it looks like Kelsey will have a new position at Millennial to tackle and she is also truly opening herself up to Zane, so it will be interesting to see what’s next for one of my favorite ships as well.  I have been a fan of the series for a while now, but sometimes characters with the most potential lose out on screen time.

Each episode is only about 30 minutes, which doesn’t give us a lot of time to play with, but I think that the development and growth of Kelsey’s character has been so important for the series and I am a Kelsey Peters fan for life.  I can’t wait to see what she does next!

Stay tuned for a recognized performance on TV each week!

Amy Koto, TV Fanatic Girl

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Younger” season 6 episode 12: “That’s A Lot to Think About!”

Happy Thursday TV fans!  After watching TV Land’s Younger season 6 episode 12 season finale, I realized that “we have to make choices in life,” but it seems like Liza is not having a super easy time with this and things are only going to get more complicated for her.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  

In last night’s episode, “Forever,” Liza’s two worlds collide again, when she is left with an overwhelming choice that may change her life forever.  Meanwhile, Kelsey contemplates her next steps and Diana and Enzo get married.  My top 5 moments from the Younger season 6 episode 12 season finale are:

5

“I’m taking a leap and the net will appear.”

Well maybe, “but what if the sidewalk appears first,” as Liza points out to her good friend, Kelsey, who decides to move forward with her decision to leave Millennial.  Both Charles and Liza try to convince Kelsey to change her mind, but they do respect her decision.  Kelsey is looking to start her own publishing company and even secures Quinn as an investor, which surprises everyone, but is this really the right move for our girl Kelsey?

4

“It’s Diana’s day.”

Even though Diana’s wedding mostly serves as the background for this jam-packed episode, Diana looks beyond gorgeous in her gown and I was so happy to see her and Enzo get married without that interesting ice sculpture on display.  Leave it to Maggie and Lauren to stir up just the right amount of trouble!  Either way, it was wonderful to see one of my favorite ships finally get their happily ever after and I can’t wait to see what happens next with them!

3

“Does this count as me reaching out?”

Kelsey is going through a lot and Zane tries to show his support, but he also gives Kelsey a reality check about starting her own publishing company, especially since he just went through this recently.  Zane tells Kelsey that he thought she was awesome in the way she handled everything, but he also doesn’t like that she bailed on him and reminds her that it will need to be her move if she wants to pursue their relationship in the future.

Luckily, it doesn’t take Kelsey too long to discover where her heart truly lies, as she holds Zane’s hand during Diana and Enzo’s wedding, letting Zane know that she’s ready to give their relationship a true chance.  I ship these two so much and I am really happy that they are going to keep things going!  Yay!

2

“I wouldn’t want anyone else to have it…”

After Infinitely 21 wants to use Liza’s tattoo design, Josh explains that he needs to get permission.  Liza initially tells him that it’s fine, but she quickly has a change of heart, flashing back to the day that Josh gave her that tattoo, realizing how unique and special it is to their past relationship.

Liza says, “It’s ours” and Josh seems to be pleased with her answer, recognizing that perhaps Liza has not truly moved on just yet.  A tattoo is forever, but is Liza ready to finally trust her instincts and go with her heart?  Well…it’s about to get even more complicated!

1

“Will you marry me?”

Charliza finally gets a moment alone during the season finale and it’s a very big moment, as Charles explains that perhaps the family trip was not a great idea and asks Liza to marry him.  Before Liza can answer, Kelsey interrupts and says, “I do” to Charles’s offer to make her a member of the board, giving her a stake in the company.  The bridal party splits these two apart and we are left seeing Liza and Charles looking at one another across the dance floor. 

I mean, talk about a cliffhanger!  What will Liza say?  Is she ready to finally make a choice?  I can’t wait to find out and I’m curious to learn whether Team Charles or Team Josh will be victorious.  Although, perhaps Liza will choose herself during this impossible choice to make things even more dramatic, but we will have to wait until 2020 to find out!!!!!!  Stay tuned Younger fans!

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!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Younger” season 6 episode 10: “It’s All About the Money, Honey!”

Happy Thursday TV fans!  After watching TV Land’s Younger season 6 episode 10, I realized that we don’t always know what the future holds and we all have a past.  But as Charles pointed out, “in order to have a future, you move on from it,” but what if your past is way more complicated than that?  And if we can’t move on from the past, is it time to revisit it?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  

In last night’s episode, “It’s All About the Money, Honey,” Liza spots the intimate advertisement for Infinitely 21 on display and worries what Charles will think.  Meanwhile, Josh contemplates the future and Kelsey and Charles head off to secure a new business partner.  Things seem to be going well until Kelsey’s private video is accidentally added to her Insta story.  My top 5 moments from Younger season 6 episode 10 are:

5

“Oh my god…”

The advertisement is up for Infinitely 21 and Liza and Josh look fantastic, but Liza is beyond shocked when she sees it.  Liza and Josh look extremely happy and cozy in the picture and Liza worries about what Charles may think.  She reaches out to Kelsey for help, trying to keep Charles from seeing the advertisement before she talks to him about it first and Kelsey hilariously does her best to distract Charles.

Our girl Kelsey certainly knows how to improvise and she even tells Charles that she hates escalators because they are weird just to keep him away.  Talk about a good friend!  It’s only a matter of time before Charles sees the advertisement; however, as Liza finds out that it is now going national.  Liza decides to get on a plane to talk to Charles about it before it’s too late, but will this plan backfire?

4

“I left a voicemail for you.”

Lauren and Diana get a little bit of screen time during this episode and Lauren does her best to play publicist for Liza.  After all, she did leave a voicemail!  Even though Lauren’s efforts don’t work, she keeps the laughs coming and I have to say that I am really happy that Diana is going to select a wedding dress that truly makes her feel special because she deserves it.  I can’t wait to see her in it!

3

“It’s literally a sign.”

Josh is in for a surprise when he finds out that Clare has gotten a job opportunity in L.A. and plans to move there with Gemma.  Clare wants what is best for their daughter and so does Josh, but he seems so perfect for fatherhood and I can’t bear to see him separated from his daughter.  Josh has a heart-to-heart talk with Maggie and tells her, “No matter how much you love someone, it doesn’t mean you’re what’s best for them,” thinking of Liza here as well.

Maggie helps spark something in Josh; however, as he decides to approach Infinitely 21 about a partnership with Inkburg, which could bring in some big bucks for Josh.  Let’s hope this is enough to keep baby Gemma in town, but is it possible that a flame will be rekindled between Liza and Josh as well?  We’ll have to wait and see, but it looks like some big questions are going to be answered in next week’s episode.

2

“Guess who got the money, honey?!”

Kelsey is quite impressive at her meeting with the business partners and it looks like she has sealed the deal with Charles’s help.  After celebrating with perhaps too many drinks, Kelsey decides to send a private DM to Zane to show off her…assets.  Only Kelsey’s sexy private video gets posted to her Insta story by mistake and she wakes up to a social media disaster.  Kelsey takes down the video, but it comes up in search engines and she knows that she will now need to explain herself to their new potential partners.

1

“This is the right move for Millennial.”

After speaking with the new potential business partners, they explain that they are still willing to invest in Millennial, but only if Charles is now the publisher.  Charles stands up for Kelsey and talks about how dedicated and hard-working she has been, but Kelsey accepts this and understands that it’s what is best for the company.

I felt so bad for Kelsey in this moment, but I also think it shows how much she has grown too.  She made a mistake and she owns it and I’m hoping she will bounce back from this, but I thought it was truly impressive that she put the company first.

Sometimes we need to make tough decisions for the good of others and at the end of the episode, Liza tells Charles that she will not see Josh anymore, but is this a promise she can truly keep?  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!

My Ship of the week ending 8/17/19 on TV goes to…

Kelsey and Zane on Younger!  There are some amazing ships on this show, but I am so in love with Kelsey and Zane and I have been rooting for them for quite a while now.  Kelsey hasn’t had the best luck in her previous relationships, but I felt that instant spark and chemistry when she met Zane. 

His charming confidence was the perfect match for Kelsey’s stubborn tenacity and these two really compliment each other, while entering into some friendly competition as well, but that’s what makes their relationship scream passion!

**Please note some spoilers are ahead if you have not watched season 6, episode 9 yet.  Even though it seems like Kelsey and Zane are the perfect match, they haven’t really had their moment in the spotlight yet.  Kelsey and Zane both care about their jobs a lot and it has often gotten in the way of their relationship, but it looks like that is finally about to change!

In season 6, episode 9, Zane is hurt when he finds out that Kelsey has been lying to him about Liza’s real age and she tries to work things out with him.  This leads to a real and honest conversation between them, as Zane asks Kelsey what she really thought when he told her he loved her.  The obstacles appear to be out of the way for now and Kelsey tells Zane that she loves him too, which had me jumping up and down for joy!

Kelsey is such a strong woman and her past relationships consisted of men who simply did not deserve her.  Either they didn’t see how amazing she was or they were too busy being selfish, but she was so far out of their league.  Even though Zane tries to pretend like he doesn’t care, he does, and he proves that he has a softer and romantic side when it comes to his feelings for Kelsey.

Kelsey and Zane deserve a real chance at happiness and I believe in their relationship.  They are beyond adorable together and I love when they go out drinking, as the walls come down and they are finally just themselves with one another.  Perhaps Kelsey should leave the cooking to Zane in the future though…

What’s next for Kelsey and Zane?  Now that it looks like they are finally giving their relationship a chance, what does this mean for their working relationship?  Zane is currently reporting to Kelsey, but this will most likely need to change if they want to avoid more scandal at Millennial, but I can’t wait to see some more swoon-worthy moments for these two and I hope nothing else stands in their way because they are end game for me!

Stay tuned for a recognized Ship on TV each week!

Best,

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Younger” season 6 episode 4: “BDE”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching TV Land’s Younger season 6 episode 4, I realized that “if you’re looking for trouble, you’re probably gonna find it,” but what happens when it’s finally all out in the open?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  In Wednesday night’s episode, “An Inside Glob,” Kelsey’s stress begins to catch up with her, which causes her to get creative with some of her fashion choices.  Meanwhile, Maggie tries out an interesting home remedy, Josh bonds with his daughter, and Liza confronts Charles.  My top 5 moments from Younger season 6 episode 4 are:

5

“Money isn’t everything.”

In this episode, Kelsey decides to track down Zane at his new office and discovers that Mercury is based out of a community workplace.  Zane doesn’t seem to mind, but Kelsey wants to know where he is getting his funding from.  Zane reminds Kelsey that money isn’t everything and sometimes “it’s about charm,” but Kelsey doesn’t find this very cute at all.  Watch out, Zane!

4

“I don’t have that energy!”

Kelsey confides in Lauren about her stress over work and Lauren suggests she starts casually dating again.  She hilariously changes Kelsey’s work title on her dating app to “Creative Director,” so that Kelsey will seem more approachable, explaining that Kelsey has “BDE,” which apparently stands for big dick energy.  Kelsey seems excited for a new potential romance and decides to get her hair done for the occasion, but is in for a huge surprise, when she finds out that she is losing clumps of her hair and perhaps her BDE is really “Bald Dude Energy.”  Poor Kelsey.

3

“I really wanna be in her life full time.”

Meanwhile, Josh gets some quality time with his daughter when Clare has to work on a project.  Josh is absolutely adorable with his baby and even puts her in a baby carrier at work…although I’m not sure that the tattoo parlor is the best place for her, but Josh assures Clare that the buzzing actually puts her right to sleep.  Josh realizes that he wants to spend more time with his daughter and hopes that their upcoming divorce does not get in the way.  He asks Clare if they can do this parenting thing together and she agrees.  I’m just hoping this all works out for Josh because he seems so happy.

2

“Is there something you’re not telling me?”

Liza takes a minute to confront Charles privately and asks him if he is the money behind Mercury.  Charles comes clean with Liza and explains that he never wanted to give up publishing and was just trying to find the right moment to tell her.  Liza seems somewhat understanding after Charles explains that he wants something just for him, as he was always previously working for his father’s company, but asks Liza to keep this between them for now.  However, this puts Liza in an awkward position, as she will have to keep this information from Kelsey.  It’s only a matter of time before the cat is out of the bag.

1

“My hair is falling out because of you!”

Well at least we don’t have to wait that long, as Kelsey decides to go see the author who initially turned her down at her lunch meeting with Zane.  Liza tries to intervene, but it’s too late, as Charles and Zane walk in the door and everything is now finally out in the open.  Kelsey is outraged by this and feels betrayed, screaming that her hair is falling out because of them.  Unfortunately, that starts trending on social media, which is not the best look for Kelsey, but at least the author decides to stay with her.  After all, Kelsey did fight for her and is extremely motivated and capable.  However, we now discover that Charles has resigned from the board, which makes him their official competition.

It looks like things are only going to get more complicated now.  Competition may be healthy, but Kelsey is taking everything personally and I don’t really blame her.  We’ll have to wait and see how this all unfolds.  Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Younger” season 6 episode 3: “We Will Just Have to Eat It”

Happy Thursday TV fans!  After watching TV Land’s Younger season 6 episode 3, I realized that integrity is important, but sometimes it’s not as simple as clearing your name.  So do you “eat it,” as Kelsey so eloquently put it, or do you find another way to spin the scam?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  In last night’s episode, “The Unusual Suspect,” Quinn’s book is making its way up the best seller list, but there is something fishy going on.  Meanwhile, Maggie finds a potential new romance, Josh adjusts to fatherhood, and Liza and Charles spice things up with an interesting role play.  My top 5 moments from Younger season 6 episode 3 are:

5

“I haven’t been able to look at her since the incident.”

In this episode, Maggie gets some well deserved screen time and has clearly been traumatized after helping Clare while she was in labor.  Lauren tries to help Maggie get through this and brings her to some kind of therapy group for this very thing, but it looks like this was the right call, as Maggie meets a new potential romantic interest named Beth.  Beth informs Maggie that she “also teaches privates” and it looks like Maggie is ready to take her up on this offer.  We’ll have to see how this new romance unfolds, but I’m happy for Maggie.

4

“I guess I need to listen to episode 7.”

Everyone is obsessed over the trending podcast, Exonerated, as Liza and Kelsey prepare to meet with Audrey Colbert, played by the wonderful Willa Fitzgerald for all of you Scream fans out there!  Audrey is definitely a little off and is pitching her book to Millennial, but she needs to be convinced that Liza and Kelsey believe that she is innocent of murder.

Liza and Charles also spice things up, as they act out different scenarios in the podcast, leading to some interesting role plays, but I’m always happy to see an episode that features some Charliza time.  Still swooning over this!  Liza actually plays the femme fatale very well, so Charles better look out when it comes to his new business deal!

“Clare…will you…?

So I’ll admit it, when I first saw the preview for episode 3, I thought Josh was going to propose to Clare and I didn’t like it at all!  I’m glad this did not happen, as Josh realizes that they are not right for each other.  I think it’s so amazing that they are going to raise their baby together, but Josh realizes that they need to keep the romance out of it, which is the right call in my opinion.

Josh gets down on one knee and says, “Clare…will you divorce me?”  It looks like Clare is on board, but what does this mean for Josh’s romantic life?  We know that there are still feelings floating around for Liza, but will he continue to pursue this or is there someone else catching his eye?

“You and Zane…again?!”

I mean, it’s not like I mind Kelsey and Zane getting together again, as I absolutely adore these two together!  Kelsey bumps into Zane at the liquor store and thinks that he is pretending about having a new job.  Zane continues to turn on the charisma and invites Kelsey to help him drink the bottle he just bought.  It looks like things are definitely on again for this couple, but Zane is about to shake things up when Kelsey finds out about his actual new job.  Drama!

“A messy bitch who lives for drama.”

That’s our girl Kelsey and we adore her for it!  After Quinn’s book continues to climb on the best seller list, Kelsey discovers that Quinn bought her books in bulk, which resulted in a dagger next to her name at number one.  It’s a scam and Kelsey is not ready to take the fall for this.  Kelsey initially thinks about coming clean and placing the blame on Quinn, but Liza gives her some great advice and reminds her that she is their investor and she can’t throw an author under the bus.

Kelsey proves to be someone you do not want to mess with when she is asked about the bulk sales during an interview.  With perfect poise, she explains that the books were bought for speaking events and decides to announce Quinn’s intent to run for senate earlier than Quinn had intended.  Quinn is clearly not pleased with this, but no one puts our girl Kelsey in a corner!

Things are looking up, but Kelsey soon discovers that Audrey is actually going to go with a new publishing company named Mercury.  We learn that Zane is the editor, but they start to wonder about where he got all that money, as a light bulb goes off in Liza’s head, realizing Charles’s connection to all of this.  I can’t wait to see what happens next here!  Stay tuned!  New episodes return July 10th!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Younger” season 6 episode 2: “Baller Move”

Happy Thursday TV fans!  After watching TV Land’s Younger season 6 episode 2, I realized that sometimes “life gives you more than you thought,” but what if it doesn’t turn out exactly how you planned?  Do you continue searching for that possibility or do you settle?  Maybe it’s not settling at all, but accepting and understanding the love that’s been there in front of you the whole time.  But nothing is ever that simple on our favorite show.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  In last night’s episode, “Flush With Love,” Liza and Kelsey attempt to approach Quinn about pushing back her book.  Meanwhile, Zane decides to shake things up with Kelsey and Josh tries to prepare for fatherhood.  My top 5 moments from Younger season 6 episode 2 are:

“Guess who wrote a masterpiece…it will be our first release!”

In episode 2, Kelsey is still adjusting to her demanding role as publisher, but quickly realizes that she has a new dilemma on her hands, when a focus group reacts strongly to Quinn’s book, Claw, and not in a good way.  The group has some strong reactions, including one reader who hilariously asks if it is possible to unread something.  Kelsey knows that it will not be easy to simply push back Quinn’s book release since she is her boss, but she worries about having a huge flop on her hands.

Kelsey and Liza team up to try and approach Quinn, but Quinn doesn’t want to hear it and decides to break out into a loud and obnoxious cheer at lunch to get everyone on board.  Kelsey desperately wants to do the right thing here, but is she out of her depth?

“I don’t want to be friends with you anymore.”

I’m so glad I didn’t have to wait too much longer for a swoon-worthy moment between Kelsey and Zane since I ship them oh so much!  Zane approaches Kelsey and tells her that he doesn’t want to be friends anymore.  Kelsey realizes that he must have gotten a job, but Charles and Zane still have not revealed their big announcement just yet and I’m anxious to hear it.

However, Kelsey and Zane do share a passionate kiss so it looks like things are looking up for these two, but will Kelsey feel the same way once she finds out what the job is?  We have to assume that Zane will end up being Kelsey’s competition, but I really hope it doesn’t get in the way of their relationship because these two are end game for me.

“This kid is so lucky to have you as a dad.”

Liza and Josh continue to share some sweet moments together, when Liza helps Josh out with some baby shopping.  Liza has a lot of experience with being a mother and she helps Josh filter through the list so that he doesn’t panic so much.  Liza tells Josh that he is going to be a great dad and I have to agree, but it looks like Josh doesn’t have much time to prepare when Clare’s water breaks at the reveal party, causing her to begin going into labor in the back of an Uber. 

Clare and Josh have a healthy baby girl, but Liza watches Josh with his newborn with an interesting look on her face.  It’s clear that Liza is beyond happy for Josh, but is she now having second thoughts about letting him go?  I’m Team Charles all the way, but there have still been some lingering feelings floating over to Team Josh, so it will be interesting to see how this plays out, although it looks like Josh may be looking to get a second chance with Clare.  We’ll have to wait and see!

“Put it in writing…baller move.”

After Kelsey comes up with a plan to back one of Reese’s books before Quinn’s, she starts to have second thoughts, especially when Charles puts his two cents in.  Liza promises that she will no longer keep Charles in the loop, recognizing that it is putting a potential strain on her working relationship with Kelsey.  Kelsey decides to channel her inner baller and meets with Quinn again.  She strikes up a deal with her:  she will release Quinn’s book first and if it’s a flop, Quinn promises she will walk away.

Kelsey doesn’t take any chances here and tells Quinn to put it in writing, but is she making the right call?  Can we really trust Quinn to keep her word?  Either way, I was very proud of Kelsey here in this moment because it’s not always easy standing your ground, but she does it so well!

1

“Did you mean this?”

Even though Liza, Kelsey, and Josh are all dealing with a lot of drama, Diana gets her moment in the spotlight as well.  Diana and Enzo have an argument after Diana talks about how she used to always think she would end up with Charles.  I know that Diana always speaks her mind, but maybe she should remember that some things can come out in a hurtful way, as she ends up driving Enzo away, who thinks that she is merely settling with him.

Enzo deserves better and he’s right, but luckily Diana realizes it before it’s too late.  Diana has her story, “Flush With Love,” published in the newspaper, talking about her modern day romance with Enzo, but she also explains how it is important to dream about the man next to you, rather than focusing on the “man of your dreams.”  Enzo asks Diana if she means it and the two have a sweet moment together.

I’m so glad that Diana realized that she has the real thing with Enzo because these two are absolutely adorable and I can’t bear to see them apart!  There seems to be a lot of love in the air so far in season 6, but we know that drama is never too far away.  Who will crack first?  Stay tuned!

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!

3

“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.

1

“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!
