Do you hear that? That’s the sound of thousands of Team Charles shippers screaming in unison because we are finally sailing on clear seas…at least for 24 minutes.
Let’s get the other stuff out of the way so we can gush about Charles & Liza;
Jake Deveraux is a total douche nozzle, after Kelsey tells him she wants to cool things down and focus on the book, maintain a solely professional relationship, he goes to Charles, AGAIN, to try and switch out his editor. He calls Kelsey green and inexperienced even though she basically invented that book, and says that it would be better at Empirical (side note who actually notices what imprint a book is published under?). Charles, smart beautiful bearded Charles, sort of notices this pattern and goes to Zane. He asks his opinion about publishing with Empirical instead of millennial and Zane gives all the credit to Kelsey even though he’s mad at her BECAUSE HE LOVES HER!
Lauren hosts a dinner party for this new girl she just met, who happens to be Malky, Maggie’s ex!!! They have a tense dinner, followed by flowers, a grand gesture (aided by sweet adorable Josh) & a reconciliation.
Dianna is on a cleans and more delightful than ever.
Pauline is back and bitchier than ever. At lunch with the Hello Sunshine developer, she pitches her ideas for a sequel, which involved CARL divorcing her because he’s in love with his assistant…I THINK SOMEONE IS ONTO US! It’s a good thing she doesn’t know about the age thing because homegirl is out for revenge & nothing can stop her! Later on she tells Charles she wants to take back the option for her sequel, because she can get double for it elsewhere. Charles agrees to her demands to get her to not expose his relationship.
WHICH BRINGS US TOOOOOO *DRUMROLL PLEASE*
Liza & Charles doooooooo iiiiiiiit!
We open on their first date, having drinks and talking about the first time they noticed the other one and fell in love. From there they fall into bed and ooooooooooooh girl it is hotttttttt. Then it’s time for Christmas break so they split for 10 days, and when they see each other next Charles has grown a full ass beard! Who knew white people could grow facial hair like that?! Everyone hates the beard but I want it to do dirty things to me.
They spend some time sneaking around with each other and going to this beautiful carousel, playing footsie in a conference room, casually grazing each other, and texting each other clandestinely.
It seems like everything will go well for a while, which means shit will soon hit the fan, but for now it’s nice to enjoy their love bubble with them!
