We Need To Talk About This Season Of Younger

Namely, wtf is even happening?

**Note: this article includes spoilers about the current episodes available for Season 7 of Younger on Stan**


Okay. We all know we have been hanging out for the final season of Younger more than we have for bars and gyms to reopen. Does Liza say yes to Charles? What's happening with Kelsey and Zane?
