Recap

Following Pauline's expose at the debutante ball, authors have been leaving Millennial in droves or flocking to see the "40-year-old woman."

Kelsey, Charles, Zane and Diana brainstorm how to spin the situation so they don't make it worse. 

Charles believes they should have Liza be more vocal and reach out to the authors individually while Zane thinks they're all crazy for even considering anything other than firing her with a nice letter of recommendation to boot. 

In Zane's eyes, Liza lied to all of them and made them complicit. She almost took down a whole company with her. Why wouldn't they punish her?

Liza and Kelsey meet with Infinitely 21, a clothing store brand who was interested in carrying Millennial titles on its store shelves. 

After hearing the news of Liza's real age, Shelley, a rep for the company, insists that the partnership no longer feels right. 

That's when Liza launches into the most badass monologue ever claiming that Millennial is an attitude not an age. 

She informs Shelley that everyone is pretending to be younger with their daily beauty routines and if they can't handle it, Millennial will find someone who can. 

Shelley is thrown off by Liza's aggression, but in a good way as she later rings Liza to let her know that she's spoken with company directors and they want her to be the face of their upcoming ad campaign. 

Liza is stunned but agrees. 

The shoot is the next day at the park and everyone thinks it's a pro-move not only for Liza but for the company. 

Even Quinn is impressed. She suggests Liza go on primetime news to share her story of age discrimination. 

Charles and Josh both show up at the shoot to support Liza. 

The photographer attempts to catch shots of Liza in a natural state, but he cringes at every photo with Charles. 

Diana even retorts that it looks like a father-daughter campaign. 

But when Josh walks into the bar, the mood changes. 

Shelley and the photographer are both intrigued and as he begins snapping shots, Shelley asks Josh to tell her about the first time he met Liza. 

Josh begins sweetly reminiscing, and it's obvious there's still something there between the two of them. 

The next day, Liza joins Quinn for the news segment. 

Before the show, she chats with the reporter who asks her about Quinn's reaction when she first found out Liza's age. 

During the interview, Quinn lies and explains that she found out when Pauline exposed Liza and makes herself look like liar on national television. 

The aftermath of the show is brutal. 

Quinn meets with Kelsey and orders her to fire Liza. 

Kelsey refuses to explain that Quinn did this to herself by lying and using the platform for personal gain. 

The next day, Kelsey learns that Quinn pulled all of her investor funding in retaliation. 

Millennial is officially broke. 

Meanwhile, Diana meets a charming male artist at his art gallery. 

He comes onto her and invites himself back to his apartment. 

She informs him that she's gay, but that doesn't seem to phase him since he believes sexuality is fluid. 

They sleep together, and Liza assumes he's a burglar when she sees him in the kitchen the next morning.

The man attempts to woo Maggie for another rendezvous, but she tells him she's really not interested. 

That's when he informs her that he prides himself on being a flipper as in a man who flips gay women into becoming straight after sleeping with them. 

Maggie is so furious, she flips the restaurant table and bolts out of there. 

Zane is so furious that Kelsey lied to him about Liza, he stops showing up to work. 

Kelsey surprises him at his apartment and offers to cook a meal and answer any and all questions. 

Zane asks her what she really thought when he told her he loved her. 

Kelsey explains that she was mad and that he said it in the past tense. 

They both admit that they love each other now and agree to stop wasting time and pursue a real relationship.

Younger Season 6 Episode 9 Quotes

Well, you want some tea, Shelly? Everyone is pretending to be younger. We dye our hair, we whiten our teeth, we wear moisturizing face masks that make us look like serial killers, and we squeeze our widening hips into Spanx because the most important thing to be in the whole goddamn world is 27. Should I have told the truth? Sure. But you know what? So should you. Millennial isn't an age, it's an attitude. And if you can't sell that, we'll go somewhere else.

Liza

I think this is crazy. She lied to you, made you all complicit, and now, it's threatening your business. But you want to let her get away with it allowing her to endanger the company. You're refusing to put out a very preventable fire. Write her a nice recommendation and get her out before she poisons the whole company.

Zane
