BWW Recap: Liza Gets Real with Josh on YOUNGER Season FinaleBWW Recap: Liza Gets Real with Josh on YOUNGER Season Finale
by Matt Smith - Jun 9, 2015

What a whirlwind Liza has been on this season! And unfortunately for her, it doesn't get ease up in the final installment - if anything, it's even more crazy!!

Though there are no literal fireworks present, it wouldn't be inaccurate to say this episode's an explosive finale, capping off a season of blunders and hijinks as only the YOUNGER writers can create.

Like, in a big way. And I mean big. Like game-changing big. All right — enough teasing. Intrigued? Why then, read on….  (more...)
