Tonight’s Younger lived up to the series’ namesake by mercilessly eliminating the very premise it was founded on.
This recap contains spoilers for Younger Season 6 Episode 8.
The cat is out of the bag, Liza’s 42 and now the whole world knows it! On tonight’s Younger, Liza Miller ran into Charles’ ex-wife while dropping something off for his daughter. At first ex-wife Pauline was all smiles, wanting to extend an olive branch to Liza by having a casual lunch with her. That was when Pauline believed Liza to be the young assistant her husband ran way with… Not her very own peer.
During a Millenial meeting, Zane suggested Pauline’s return, both as author and as their featured author for Millenial’s appearance at a Debutante Ball. Things would look bright and cheery for Liza as Pauline told her she was the only Editor that ever understood her, and she would happily be a debutante. Everything was going swimmingly until Pauline discovered Liza’s real age off a driver’s license. 42… 42!
It was a moment similar to George Costanza’s mother from Seinfeld discovering she hadn’t been taking advice from a Chinese lady after all. ‘This changes everything!’ Needless to say, the ball would end up being a disaster.
Pauline would expose Liza on stage in a living nightmare of embarrassment. The revelation would also have Pauline reconsidering her child custody agreement with Charles.
Diana Trout has a panic attack
Diana had earlier made Liza her Maid of Honor in tonight’s Younger episode. When she heard the truth about Liza’s age, she was beside herself. Diana stormed out of the ball into the streets of New York City before collapsing. She was taken to the emergency room and refused to speak to either Charles or Liza. Enzo telling Diana that Liza looks good for her age did not help matters.
Liza would speak to Josh on the phone following “The Debu-Taunt” ball but not much was shown on screen. Only the beginning of the conversation, no middle or end.
Even though Diana drafted a termination letter for Liza, after hearing why she lied, she understood. If not for the lie, Diana Trout would never have gotten to meet Liza Miller to begin with. Instead of ‘Not so Millennial’ there would be no Millennial. There would be no Younger…
