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?

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.

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Fear the Walking Dead” season 5 episode 11: “You Made It Your Own”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead season 5 episode 11, I realized that sometimes the universe may be trying to tell us something, but perhaps we need to see it for ourselves in order for it to truly resonate with us.  Whether it’s a moment of self-reflection or a meaningful message, just taking that moment means that we are still here.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.

In last night’s episode, “You’re Still Here,” Alicia and Victor try to track down the person who painted the trees, but Alicia is not exactly sure what she is truly searching for.  Meanwhile, Morgan and Al’s mission is interrupted when they run into Logan and his gang, as we start to learn more about his bigger plan.  My top 5 moments from Fear the Walking Dead season 5 episode 11 are:

5

“I just know how I feel when I see those trees.”

In this episode, we catch up with Alicia and Victor.  Alicia is still having trouble taking out walkers and she focuses her attention on tracking down the person who has been painting the messages on the trees.  Victor asks Alicia what this is really going to do for her and Alicia is not exactly sure, but she recognizes that it is important.

Alicia says, “They see the world in a way I want to see it,” hoping that she can find the answers she is looking for by talking to this person.  We know that Alicia’s encounter with the radioactive walker has traumatized her, but let’s hope that this mission can get her back on track because Victor is not always going to be around with perfect timing to help save her.

“You’re really gonna make me work for it, huh?”

Meanwhile, we also catch up with Morgan and Al in this episode.  Morgan seems grateful for the distraction, but Al senses that something is up and tries to get Morgan to open up about it.  Morgan initially tells Al that there is nothing to talk about, but this one-on-one talk is interrupted when Alicia calls them over the walkie for backup.

Later in the episode, Morgan does open up to Al and she reminds him that he can tell her about his wife and son.  This is a huge step for Morgan and I am glad to see that he is finally willing to share something real and close to his heart with the people around him.

“What I’m doing is bigger than you.”

Is it though?  Logan listens in on Alicia’s call out to Morgan and Al and shows up with the truck to get in Morgan’s way.  Logan recognizes that they will not want to risk an innocent person’s life and asks him where the oil fields are.  Morgan tries to ask Logan what he needs the gas for and we still don’t get a concrete answer here.  Logan dances around the answer and tells him that he will be helping people, but not in a way Morgan would approve of…so what does that mean?  Is Logan looking to blow something up?  What is his real plan? 

We still don’t know and at the end of the episode, Logan breaks into the vault, looking for Clayton’s journals, but is out of luck for now.  Logan is getting a little bit too personal; however, as he taunts Morgan by telling him he couldn’t help his wife and son, which sparks some untapped anger within Morgan.  Morgan is able to walk away from this, but Logan now has his tape, so it looks like he plans on using personal information about Morgan against him.  How will this all play out?  I’m not sure, but it doesn’t look like Logan is going away anytime soon.

“People are people.”

After having his own run-in with Logan in a previous episode, Wes is back and radios over to Alicia and Victor for help.  Wes seems guarded, but does open up a little bit about his brother who died and Alicia attempts to form a connection with him.  Wes reminds her that people are people and that they live in a world now where “we shoot, we kill.”  Alicia tries to tell him that it doesn’t have to be this way, but is Wes truly ready to do what is right?

Wes is focused on getting back his manuscript, which is apparently good enough to die over so I’m intrigued, but when Alicia reads the very end, she discovers that Wes is the one who painted the trees.  Will we see Wes again?  I’m not sure, but I think that he is an interesting and unique character and I would like to see more of him.

“I’m not gonna find what I’m looking for from anybody else…”

Both Morgan and Alicia do a lot of self-reflecting in this episode.  Al tells Morgan that “what we lost doesn’t define us” and suggests that maybe it’s about what we do.  Meanwhile, Alicia takes a moment to paint her own tree and leaves the message:  “No one’s gone until they’re gone,” which clearly touches Morgan.

It’s one thing to say something out loud, but when you see the words in front of you, they have the power to become something else.  They inspire you and bring out something within you that perhaps you thought was lost a long time ago.  They remind you that there is always the opportunity to do better and to start a new path.

At the very end of the episode, Alicia is able to kill a walker and tells Victor that she is good.  I’m happy that she was able to find this strength within herself and I thought that the connection between her and Morgan was done beautifully, seamlessly connecting these two characters who are trying so hard to keep going.  Let’s just hope that Logan doesn’t taint everything they have been trying to accomplish.  Stay tuned!
