Sutton Foster Puts Up with Ghosts, Cardio & More this Week on Younger

first_imgWe suddenly have this urge to use excessive emoji, and that can only mean one thing: There’s a brand new episode of Younger! This week on the TV Land series, Liza (Sutton Foster) juggles everything from tolerating a ghosting boyfriend to being coerced into a walking competition to saving the day the new imprint’s launch party. Meanwhile, a certain someone who once hooked up with a pregnant Renée Elise Goldsberry hosts a sex party. It’s a lot to take in, but we’re breaking it all down in this week’s recap.SEASON 2, EPISODE 3: “Like a Boss”Emoji UpdateTranslation: Liza puts off telling her millennial friends about her real age to Josh’s chagrin. Short on cash, Maggie considers putting her apartment on Airbnb. At Empirical Press, Kelsey and Liza share their imprint launch party plans (it’s at a glue factory and they’re inviting someone named Pompous Croissant). Diana, always eager to win and even more eager to force labor upon her assistant, has Liza wear her Fitbit to out-walk her rival. Lauren arranges a fitting for Kelsey and Liza to ensure they’re dressed to the nines at the launch. Over wine, the three girls and Lauren’s mom (Kathy Najimy) discuss Josh’s ghosting habit. Dismayed by Internet comments and her custom dress that vaguely looks like one of the moons of Jupiter, Kelsey begins a slow descent into madness. Meanwhile, Josh discovers Maggie is not hosting an Airbnb couple from Albany, but rather a full-blown sex party. At the launch event, Liza saves the day by talking Kelsey through her speech via Bluetooth. Impressed by her craftiness, Charles chats up Liza, but before he can make a move, Josh (no longer a ghost) steps in.Biggest OMG Moment:If the eggplant and peach emoji make you blush, do not attend a party at Maggie’s place. To make ends meet, our favorite fictional lesbian artist hosts an orgy in her apartment (safe sex only; men pay $50, women $25). And from the look of it, she has absolutely done this before. Hey, when times are hard, some bake people into pies, some burn their rock posters and screenplays, and others host sex parties in their Williamsburg flats.Millennial Glossary:To Ghost:(verb) To seemingly disappear off the face of the earth, but still manage to pop up in social media feeds. It’s what Josh keeps doing to Liza, and just when Peter’s about to swoop in with Champagne and workplace flirting, Josh reappears. We’ll give Josh some credit for sticking by Liza after her big reveal, but this is surely a red flag.Pompous Croissant:(noun) A fictional member of the “cyber-elite” invited to Kelsey and Liza’s imprint launch. We’re not sure what his or her exact beat is, but we’ll be at any party that promises baked goods (hint hint, Alex Brightman).Moment That Made Us Go:When Diana defeated her Fitbit rival! And by Diana, we mean Liza. Yes, Trout Pout even delegates her fitness regime to her lowly assistant. But with everything else going on, Liza still managed to step her way to victory. Must have been that eight-minute tap break on a boat.Diana’s Statement Jewelry Update!After flashing medieval and ultra-hygienic looks, Diana Trout is serving us Department of Defense Realness. Not only is she sporting a torpedo pendant as this week’s statement necklace, but it’s also paired with actual pentagon earrings. Do they sell those at the gift shop? Is there even a Pentagon gift shop? View Commentslast_img read more
