Younger tv show ended in the worst possible way





So to sum it up so you don't have to watch it at all:

-Charles and Liza get back together only to break up again two minutes later because Liza was okay to lie to Charles about submitting his book to publishers and wouldn't have told him about it if he didn't get it even though they agreed to be completely honest with each other in that same episode. (so none of the previous development mattered)
-Charles suddenly goes back to his old personality (before season 7 where he became a little bitch and ooc) right after break up with Liza and he decides to be a writer and hands the company over to Liza
-Maggie ends up with some woman whose wife she screwed and who tried to cancel her on social media
-Lauren is annoying as always
-Liza ends up in the bar she was at in episode 1 in season 1 and finds the glorified extra Josh there who is like 'Oh I've always been there' (that's so funny he said that like he needed to remind us he's still a character since he had no story at all and he probably lived at that bar.).
-Kelsey leaves Empirical to start her own publishing company or something, she's single af after yet another failed relationship.
-Diana wasn't in this season and she's the only one that got a decent ending and managed to save herself before this ship sank.
-Darren Starr wants to have a movie made out of the show and I hope he doesn't get his wish.
-All in all, don't watch this season if you haven't already, it's a mess, nothing made sense and it ended like How I Met Your Mother.
-My heart goes out to the talented cast that deserved so much better than what they got. Hope you enjoy those paychecks and your next gig is better written.

Two iconic actresses of the early 90s must end up together I guess. Otherwise what is the point of bringing Janeane Garofalo into the show in the first place?
When they kissed I literally said this is some queer 90's wet dream right here.
They just didn't give them a good storytelling arc though!

oh my god it sucked so fucking bad!!! the incredibly 180 Charles made after breaking up with Liza at the start of the season was bad enough but when they got back together I was like, ok fine this is all in service of a sweet romcom ending but NO!!!!!!!!!

maybe I just hate Nico Tortellini for being obnoxious but Josh and Liza have never had any real chemistry to me, and I thought having them as friends worked well. plus Peter Hermann is way hotter

Lauren annoying....Kelsey annoying (plus last episode I thought they were setting her up with Josh? whatever).....why'd they do Debi Mazar like that......
i agree with you so much

Liza fell for another man while with Josh...And she was always doing stuff that he liked but she never enjoyed...They didn't have anything in common
I cringed when they got back together because she has been such a doormat this entire season. Like, the disagreement about marriage was one thing, but his dating Quinn and bringing her to work functions and being a bad boss was too much. And she just took all his crap. Did she learn nothing from her marriage?!

I always feel like a crazy person for not wanting her with Josh, since everyone seems to want that, but I agree they just don't work together. Like you, I feel that some of it is that I don't like Nico and I can't separate him and the character but I just have never wanted Josh and Liza together, much better as friends.

I KNOW!!!!! and she was just fine with it? also the blatant PR placement of Reese Witherspoon's production company at the end sent me
to be honest Liza did most of Kelsey's job during the show LMAO but Liza never liked that shitttt, she liked scouting for talent, she liked editing books...SHE DIDN'T LIKE THE MANAGEMENT CRAP
Kelsey who fucked one of their married authors, constantly disrespected her boss, sent a public nude, made a verbal deal and was overall incredibly unprofessional? Gee, beats me!

You mean instead of DIANA?

Thank you for your service! It sucks that they ruined the show like this. I was so excited for it to come back, but stopped watching completely after the breakup because I thought it was so dumb and unrealistic for those characters.

Also I don't work in publishing, but even I know the way these people toss around ownership of publishing companies is INSANE. The constant musical chairs of president / chairman of the board / owner that changes every 2 episodes is insultingly dumb. I know this whole show is suspension of disbelief (God bless Sutton Foster but in what world was everyone convinced she was 27?) but they really must think their audience is so stupid.
I mean... tbf have u seen how white ppl age? crow's feet at 25 I swear...
I'm in this picture and I don't like it 😭

she tries to fuck over Charles and Liza after he dumped her by sending him that Inkubator proposal to prove Liza's lying to him or whatever. it pissed me off because they really made her interesting this season and just threw it away for her to be the loser villainess in the end. stupid
I couldn't make up my mind if I love to hate her or hate to love her. I guess both.
she was the only character I sorta liked this season and it's funny cuz instagram seemed to hate her so much lmaooo

I never saw this show but I always figured it would end this way. I'm glad it's over tho, I work in the same industry they do on the show and it was the bane of my existence whenever I told people cuz without missing a beat, they'd always go "Oh, like in Younger????"
truly a terrible finale and final season. you could see the show was trying to make charles insufferable to get to liza/josh. why spend the whole season playing ping pong with their relationship status to end it like that? I've always known they would endgame but you still hate to see it

Maggie ending up with the women who tried to ruin her life. ok

kelsey getting angry her bf wanted commission for doing all the work to get her financing was lazy way to break them up. was I supposed to be on her side?

Lauren becoming a thruple with her ex and his bf is probably the one character who stayed true to her weird self.

this season desperately needed diana
DARREN STAR LITERALLY SAID IN SEASON 6 THAT THEY HAVE TO GIVE CHARLES FLAWS TO MAKE JOSH BETTER AND I WAS LIKE?!!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! WHY NOT JUST WRITE JOSH BETTER INSTEAD?!!?!?!!! Flaws are one thing but they straight up gave him a personality transplant!
omg what a mess
Wait, but Charles never quite atoned for the mistakes he made in his marriage to Pauline though. All the problems Liza had with him (being rigid, etc.) were problems she learned about editing her book.
Wow. Trash. Good to know. Such waste
Ugh should I try watching this show? In theory I would love it but it’s just never gotten me to click play
Only if you pretend the season 5 finale is where the show ends. The show overall was never great, but it was usually something to watch when everything was on hiatus during the summer 🤷‍♀️ It's the same quality as The Bold Type.
yeah just stop after season 5 and you're good
I just finished this episode and the finale was so bad (the whole season was tbh)

I know other shows have done it where a couple realizes they aren't right for each other and it ends amicably, but I didn't understand why Liza wasn't mad at him constantly bringing up that she's a liar. He made petty comments through the whole episode and she was whatever about it?

After her and Charles ended things I thought wow I guess Liza will end up alone like a lot of fans wanted because Josh hasn't been in this season enough to have it make any sense.... and then they did it anyway. Why????

Woooow ok I think I’m not going to watch the final episode this sounds almost as bad as the gossip girl finale

Ugh I think I'm going to pretend the show ended with Liza and Charles kissing in the snow :( This is just sad because I only have The Bold Type left out of all these millennial twenty something shows and that's ending this year too.
My brain just broke

So….Liza ends up with Josh or is it left open-ended? IDGI


AND THANK YOU OP FOR YOUR SERVICE
well they repeat the scene from season one at the bar when she met him but this time he says 'i was right there liza. all along.' he is the definition of 'love yourself'.
WHAT THE FUCK UGH RAAAAAAGE

I read DStarr’s interviews and I got the impression they were going for an ambiguous, she chooses herself ending. I knew that wasn’t going to happen bc DStarr is DStarr but JOSH? HOW? I guess the fandom hardcore stans Nick?

Pathetic. And the fact that Team Josh is celebrating this like if Liza had picked Josh when she never did. He was her bad pancake… again. What a mess.

darren then said that it doesn't mean that she ends up with josh per se, but tbh I think that's what they were hinting at. They just wanted to keep charles and josh fans until the very end.
I stopped watching in season 4 and this summary does not make me want to pick it up again, what a trash ending not to have charles and liza end up together after all that shit. Can someone tell me what happens to diana though? She’s the only one I care about
she got married in season 6 and was on her honeymoon for season 7. She got the best ending and avoided this season lmao


you can watch season 5 because that's where charles and liza end up together
Thank you! Does she ever find out Liza’s real age?

maggie slept with that woman's wife and the woman found out and then used some art show from when maggie was young where she used some slurs to brand her transphobic on twitter

Nope.
