5 Quick Reasons Liza Needs to Pick Josh on Younger
As we head into the third season of Younger, one big question looms: will Liza pick Josh or Charles? They're both obviously stellar candidates, but only one man can win her heart. And, well, we're ready to pick sides. Josh is clearly the best candidate, contrary to what seems like popular opinion. We have a rhyme to our reason, though, and we're ready to defend our choice.
He's Sexy as Hell
Just look at that hair! That smile! Those puppy-dog eyes! How can you say no to him? Charles (Peter Hermann) is handsome and all, but Josh (Nico Tortorella) is just undeniably hot.
He Knows Her Secret
Josh already knows Liza is lying about her age. And, yeah, it took him a while to come around, but he eventually did. What's more, he's willing to help her keep the secret. It's the kind of support and understanding Liza needs while she figures everything out.
Charles, on the other hand, doesn't know her secret. In fact, Liza can't afford to tell him as long as she works for him. It's a dangerous relationship to get into. And who knows how he'll react if and when he finds out?!
He's a Sweet Guy
At the end of the day, Josh is a really nice guy. He's a sweet, loving boyfriend. He treats Liza like the badass, beautiful queen she is. That's not something you find every day.
Charles seems great, sure. But do we know how he is in a relationship? Is he kind, supportive, collaborative? Does he let work get in the way? We have no idea. He might be an awesome boyfriend, sure, but he also might be a total douche.
His Relationship With Liza Is Unconventional
Look at them, leaving notes for each other on toilet paper and whatnot. Liza and Josh's relationship hasn't been run of the mill from the start, but that's part of the beauty of it. They're figuring it out as they go, and there's an electrical charge and excitement to that.
Charles is very settled into his life. If Liza were to pick him, it would so clearly be a very normal, adult relationship, and what's the fun in that?
Picking Josh Doesn't Make Sense
This sounds like a reason to steer clear of Josh, but hear me out. From the start, Liza has been unsure about this relationship. But one thing has always been clear: they have an electric chemistry. They can't stay away from each other. Maybe Charles is a sensible choice, but love doesn't have to make sense. It's not about choosing with your head. It's about choosing with your heart.
Oh, and we're not done. Let's really think for a minute. The whole reason Liza started this new chapter in her life is because she was so sick of the life she was living. She didn't want to be the 40-something divorced mother with no clear direction. She wanted this reboot. To pick Charles would be a regression. She'd be going right back to those suburban comforts she's trying to escape. That's why she ultimately didn't get back with her ex-husband, either. Charles embodies the past, and Josh represents the future.
