AVClub: The episode begins in a very silly fashion but the drama slowly reveals itself until all of a sudden, it becomes clear that this is an important episode in the series’ run. When it comes to comedy, the concern regarding dependence on jokes that could easily show a series’ age in a few years’ time don’t bother me—what’s funny is funny. At the same time, this episode counterbalances the last pair’s emphasis on drama with an avalanche of one-liners that risk crossing that line from currently relevant over to desperate. Technology and social media jokes at least make sense for Younger given the show’s premise, but they need to be grounded with other, more traditional material. Thankfully, the setting of a publishing house inspires some timeless literary jokes, for instance, but the ratio is sometimes off.
