Younger Season Finale Spoilers

Younger Season Finale: Sutton Foster, Hilary Duff Preview Liza's 'New Threat'

Wednesday’s Younger season finale (TVLand, 10/9c) puts the “fun” in funeral.

Fresh off last week’s mind-blowing — and, of course, body-crushing — cliffhanger, the final episode of Season 2 finds Liza (Sutton Foster) supporting a somewhat grieving Kelsey (Hilary Duff), all while carrying the burden of Thad’s dirty secret on her shoulders. But we’re still talking about Younger, so this next part shouldn’t be too surprising:

“I almost died laughing while we filmed one of the funeral scenes,” Duff tells TVLine, alluding to a moment far too spoiler-y to reveal before the episode airs. She could, however, tease that this particular moment introduces a “new threat to Liza.” (Oh, did you think Thad would be the only thorn in her side this season?)

As for how Kelsey might take the news of her dead fiancé’s infidelity — assuming Liza tells her, of course — Duff reminds us that Kelsey is “a bit of a wildcard, so you never know how she’s going to react. … Thad was a douchey guy, but I think she really did love him. We saw some cracks in his armor this season that showed why she was with him.”

Speaking of reacting to huge news, here’s Duff’s relatable reaction to Thad’s death:

None of us could believe it. Half of us were in scenes during the table read, so half of the cast was reading and everyone was like, ‘Holy s–t! Holy s–t! Holy s–t!’ And those of us who were working at the time were like, ‘What’s going on?’ There was a massive group text happening. It was so annoying, because we knew it was something big.


Lastly, while we’re talking about secrets, it’s worth asking: Is someone else finally going to learn Liza’s real age this week? Regardless, Foster tells TVLine she isn’t too worried about it rocking the boat.

“At this point, the relationships are defined,” she says. “It’s not like she’d reveal her age and then become a completely different person. But I think the person who will be hurt the most is Kelsey; it’ll be confusing to her. I’m hoping that the show can exist without the lie at all at some point. It’s really about multi-generational people connecting in relationships, beyond the original conceit.”

    Can hardly wait for tonight’s episode but sad that the next one isn’t till 2017.
    And, yes, Team Charles though I hope to see Josh again.

    Liza belongs with Josh, age doesn’t matter if you really love someone. Men are with Younger Woman all the time.

      I totally agree! I really like them together. I like Charles but she has an amazing chemistry with Josh!!!

  4. William E. Kelly says:

    We are all going to miss Thad’s character as it had many different things direction it might have taken but I hear the new secret role he plays in the superheroes movie is a very big opportunity heading him onto the big screen!

    Team Charles here, but I was bummed for him that Liza couldn’t stay away from her phone long enough last week to find out what Charles would do if he walked away from publishing. I think if she was into him, she would’ve waited to read her text at least until he told her more about himself.

    Omg team Charles.. I still want to see josh though i don’t want him gone!! I think if her secret is revealed to quickly I might ruin the show.
