Charles/Liza – Younger

Couple: Charles/Liza. They don’t have a ship name. You’re just either Team Charles or Team Josh.
 
Has it Gone Canon: No. They definitely have feelings for each other, which culminated in Charles (Peter Hermann) kissing Liza (Sutton Foster) in the season two finale. Things heated up a bit in season three where on a work trip in the Hamptons Charles tells Liza how he feels. The wrench in the whole machine is Liza’s on-again-off-again much younger boyfriend Josh (Nico Tortorella). 
 

Why We Ship It: Charles and Liza have made the most sense for a long time now. Even though Josh has been willing to put in the work in the Liza/Josh relationship, he hasn’t always been understanding. He’s also intimated that he wants things that Liza doesn’t – like children. And considering their age difference it just doesn’t seem likely there’s any real future there. Sure Liza herself has a lot of growing up to do but considering her own expectations for her life, Charles is perfect. He has two daughters of his own that Liza really gets on well with and he’s drawn to her intelligence and experience in a way he can’t quite explain.

The biggest thing truly preventing them from being together isn’t even that he’s her boss or how Diana (Miriam Shor) would react but instead Liza’s lie. And while I imagine Charles would be as upset as anyone else has been to discover the truth that feeling would also be followed by relief. I think Charles would rather find himself with someone closer to his age and his attraction to Liza has never seemed to rest on hers. They’re definitely endgame!
