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.”
