A friend recently asked me which team I was, and after giving it some thought I realized I'm neither because I can see the appeal of both. That said I do feel as though the writers / producers haven't given Charles and Liza the time to develop as a couple the way they did with Josh. If memory serves (and please feel free to correct if it doesn't), the first three seasons we saw Liza & Josh's relationship develop as it would IRL (or at least on a TV show), but they just put Liza and Charles together and *BAM* they have their first real relationship challenge (the claw chick), I'm not sure they will survive this and I am disappointed because I have always wondered how that dynamic would work out.
Additionally I'm not real thrilled with Josh at the moment he does seem to be a little manipulative as of late. I didn't like it (or him) one bit last season when he was blackmailing Liza with her lie, it came across as I lied for you so you owe me this. I would expect this from a frenemy NOT a true friend or someone you deeply cared about. Now it seems like Josh is only interested in Liza because 1). He's coming off of the high of Claire and the crashing of that relationship and 2). He doesn't want to see / hear about Liza being with Charles because he still has resentment towards him from the Hamptons (even though Josh did give her a free pass because he didn't want her to feel like she missed out on anything).
We'll see how tonight's episode goes.
Lauren is still the only one in that circle that doesn't know Liza's secret, correct? I'm surprised it hasn't slipped out in passing between Liza, Kelsey, Josh and Maggie. I realize Diana doesn't know, I was talking more about her social circle.
