If you’re like us, Wednesday’s are the best day of the week.
We wait with bated breath for the latest episode of Younger to go live on Stan and no one can talk to us for those glorious 23 minutes. But, so far this season has been a bit of a yawn.
The spiciest thing that’s happened has been Charles finding out Liza’s real age but even that felt a bit underwhelming. His reaction has also made us rethink our stance on which guy Liza should end up with. And, we have now come to a decision: it’s Josh. Here’s why…
We have flipped back and forth on our love for Charles. On paper, Charles is way more suited to Liza when compared to Josh. Not only do Liza and Charles have major sexual tension, but they also connect over books, poetry and life experiences.
But, his reaction to Liza’s secret has been WAY over the top. In fact, Charles jokingly asked Liza a number of times whether she was really 26. One of these occasions was after he read Liza’s ghostwritten book chapter, which was from the perspective of a 40-year-old and utterly convincing. He even checked her HR folder to double-check her age! Hello? The answer was literally in front of his face.
We get that he is SUPER salty over discovering the lie, but he hasn’t given her the opportunity to explain herself. And, he’s been agro AF every time they are near each other. He needs to calm the f**k down, hear Liza out and then move on with his life. Four episodes in and it's hella frustrating to watch him constantly stomp around.
Now, onto our beautiful boy, Josh. We have major love heart eye emoji’s for Joshy boy – he’s just so darn lovely. While he too was shocked when Liza told him the truth about her age, he eventually let her explain the situation and he was more than understanding.
In fact, he still really wanted to be with Liza despite their age difference. And, he also helped Liza actively keep her secret. When Liza landed in hospital and Charles came to visit, Josh quickly turned around her hospital bracelet so it wouldn’t reveal her true birthdate. What a guy.
And despite Liza cheating on him with Charles (remember the kiss she planted on Charles just as Josh was coming to propose to her!), he still wanted to be her friend.
He’s since tried to move on from her, but he keeps coming back to Liza. Those two are seriously just meant to be together. We can see it. And best of all, now that Charles has turned his back on Liza, it leaves it open for Josh and Liza to reunite.
Plz, Younger gods!
